SAUSAGE! I've been grinning ear to ear typing this up, I saw alot of these memorable shows,
and remember well and really miss so many of these old groups, some of which are amazingly still intact.
I provided about 40 or so dates just to get the ball rolling and quickly
exhausted my files, but there's alot more than that now and it's all due to contributions.
Even more help will be needed to make this list more complete, and it's probably too much
to hope for, it ever really being totally complete, but what the hell let's try.
BIG JC THANKS TO THESE AGING PUNKERS:
Peter Alexander of The Auburnaires,
an archivist after my own heart,
loaded us up with dates, flyers & enough new/old snaps as to warrant his own
Jockey Club / Auburn Youth Social Club PHOTO SCRAPBOOK PAGE!
Markel Tumlin for a 1985 date, with a promise of more to come...
Kip Roe of Doc & The Pods
bequeathed to the JCR museum
the diamond shaped window frame from The Jockey Club's front door.
It's pitina is filthy and gross but to clean it would destroy its' collectors value.
Victoria Jones sent in the GO Section
article from The Dayton Daily News.
She sent it to me the day it was published and it was uploaded in less
than 24 hours!. Victoria deserves some kinda JCR award! She ROCKS!
Matt Becher of The Fabulous Boondocks

Bill Igerent of Musical Suicide
for a bunch of '83 and '84 dates, a slew of pix,
