Say It Ain’t So Al…

One of my favorite parts of the year is the holidays. My wife starts geeking out and needs setting up Christmas stuff out in July, (thanks Hallmark Channel).  But I tell her, “I said NO woman,” and then am forced to buy her dinner while she grumbles about me being Scrooge.  Why is this story important? Because Al Pitrelli, leader of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and friend of the Rock 101.1 had the 2018 TSO tour announced today…

and Lubbock was nowhere to be found…

Though we are sad not to have TSO come through the 806 this year, we look ahead to next year and the hopes they will return.

But if you’d like to hear my interviews with Al Pitrelli from last year, here they are, enjoy!
