  This old house was only a few blocks from the state Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin. All the neighborhood cats lived in the basement during the winter. The house has long since been torn down, but in 1972 there were AR2ax speakers in the front room, and a lot of good music was heard there.

In the 21st century I am just as opinionated as ever, and I now have an outlet. I shall pontificate here about anything that catches my fancy; I hope I will not make too great a fool of myself. You may comment yea or nay about anything on the site; I may quote you here, or I may not. Send brickbats etc. to: dcmusicbox@earthlink.net.

Chuck and Ann Nessa

Chuck and Ann Nessa

I've known Chuck and Ann for over 40 years; this picture is about four years old. Today is their 50th wedding anniversary! Ethne and I can only wish them many, many more.
      They were both born and raised in Iowa, which says a lot for that state. They now live in Michigan, and we wish it wasn't so far away.
