      An excellent blend of important local history and nostalgia...wonderful memories of the Spanish Ballroom, where I used to announce the big bands.

      Brings back precious memories of days gone by: going to Glen Echo Park with my mom and dad – a childhood highlight, and later as Bozo the Clown for another generation of Glen Echo Park kids.
