Ben Franklin VS Chuck Berry

One said we have a republic, if we cnn keep it.
The other said it’s got a back beat you can’t lose it.
Something like that.


@Adobe abode, in terms of my concert series at Cubberley, I did have an artist from Africa, Femi Kuti, from Nigeria, although he was based mostly in France at the time of our show. His father was beaten by soldiers at the direction of the dictator, who didn’t like being upstaged.
The song “You Get What You Give” perfomed somewhere during the inaugural I’m told by the re-formed one-night-only The New Radicals, was co-written by a guy from Los Altos. Rick Nowels (actually, come to think of it, New Radicals’ thru their agent asked to play the Cubberley Sessions, but I was already booked up, with Train…)

The Republic if we can keep it, has to have a Democratic back beat you can’t lose it any old way you choose it
