    RECORD 7 Banquet Tonight Pt.2 (Where Will Jimmy Go?)

    My name is Jim Walker.
    This is the seventh in a story series that I'm recording about my life (so far) as a musician.
    This one is a little different: A continuation of Banquet Tonight. This here is Part Two. These are several stories about growing up a product of the 70's. Good or bad, that's the decade that made me who I am. All my changes are there. These stories are grouped together from different time periods. I finally got around to writing them down about ten years ago. Being that I wrote them awhile back a few of the references are um, challenged, but I figured that was okay; better that than going through all the material and try to change the language to be 'timely'. That seemed a bit phony to me. Hang on everybody...here we go....banquet tonight.
