    Sorry to here about Gerry’s untimely passing. I remember listening to his music growing up and “Baker Street'” is one of my personal favorite’s of his. I still have his single that I purchased when I was a kid, plus a few other singles of his, including Right Down the line. RIP Gerry, you’ll be missed.

    Sad to hear about his loss. His music is timeless and I hope KRTH plays his music in regular rotation. Also don’t forget “Days Gone Down” from 1979, a rarely heard, but wonderful upbeat song that should be played too.
