Bonus Independence Day Photo:

Happy Independence Day from Fang & the Timber Rattlers.

A blast from the past:

“I believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival… it ought to be celebrated by pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other.”

That John Adams quote is the start to a post on the old Rattler Radio blogspot site.  It’s something that I wrote originally for PLAYBALL! in 2006.  It went up on the blog every year between 2007-2010.  Click the link for The Founding Team.
