    Hi-
    Sorry I missed the meeting the other day. Rob dropped me a line and said folks were curious as to details on the Feb 21 show.

    Here's the blurb from the Port Washington Library website (pwpl.org):
    SOUNDSWAP: Special Event ? Video Killed the Radio Star: The History of Music Videos. Clive Young, book author and editor of ProSound Magazine, presents this fast-paced multi-media program which traces the development of the music video from the movie shorts of yesteryear to the big-budget clips of today. Tony Traguardo hosts. 7:30 p.m.

    Tony is basically going to introduce me then I'm just gonna babble forever. Hopefully y'all will brave this winter cold and come out. Thanks!

    Here's how to get to the library from various places:

    From Eastern Long Island (via the Long Island Expressway)
    Take Long Island Expressway westbound to Exit 36 (Searingtown Road-Port Washington)
    Turn right onto Searingtown Road
    Continue north and cross over Route 25A (Northern Boulevard)
    Searingtown Road becomes Port Washington Boulevard (same road, different name)
    Continue north until you reach the Port Washington Post Office on your right
    Turn left onto Main Street
    Continue along Main Street. You will see the "Landmark on Main Street" on your left. At the traffic light, make a right into the Library Parking Lot.

    Awesome. The plan (as discussed at the last meeting) is to meet at 5:30 or 6 PM for early dinner at Cheeburger Cheeburger in Port Washington. From there we will trek over to the library and enjoy Clive's presentation. Afterward, we will all go to TGIFriday in Manhasset and have a late dinner. Of course, people should come to as many parts of the event they are able to attend.

    5:30 Dinner 1 at Cheeburger in Port Washington
    7:30 Video Killed the Radio Star at Port Washington Library
    10:00 Dinner 2 at TGIFriday in Manhasset

    I look forward to seeing everybody there!
