  • Jamboree fan

    It has been a long time since I went to the Lincoln Jamboree.

    My family and I went Saturday night and it was great. Rick Whitlock and Blake Whitlock were wonderful (a few Johnny Cash songs). Joel Ray needed a haircut but that didn’t stop his jokes. And the price was just $8. Movies are $8 and you only get half the fun.

    At intermission, there was soft ice cream and the singers sold tapes and gave interviews.

    Thank you, Joel Ray, for the memories. I wish you would bring the raffle back at intermission.
