Our Very Own Jersey Boy - 07/02/14

  I haven't seen the new Clint Eastwood film "Jersey Boys" or the Broadway play but I love the music and hope to catch both.  As is often the case where music is concerned, there's a Nashville connection to those hit projects.
  Bob Gaudio, an original member of the Four Season who wrote the songs in the play, lives here in Nashville.  His songwriting credits include:  Sherry; Big Girls Don't Cry, Can't Take My Eyes Off of You, Who Love You, Oh What A Night and Walk Like A Man.  Talk about the soundtrack of millions of lives.
  So cool that one of the guys responsible for the magic that made Frankie Vallie a household name makes his home right here.

FREE COFFEE SIGNS

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Free coffee is back for travelers on Washington state highways. Actually, the coffee never went away, but the free coffee signs are returning. Volunteers and non-profit groups serve free coffee at nearly 40 highway rest stops. But the signs offering the free java were not replaced when they became damaged or worn. Many travelers didn't know about the joe on the house. Now, state highway officials tell lawmakers the free coffee signs are going back up. The Herald newspaper reports the sign replacement program will begin in March. Backers say letting drivers know about free coffee promotes safety and helps to keep people alert behind the wheel.
