Classic Covers

My friend, Gerri Czachowski, posts lists of top twenty hits on Facebook with great regularity. The songs that comprised the soundtrack of my youth are open game for the band. She just posted the top 20 from WMCA-AM radio in New York City for April 22, 1966. Dreamwalkers currently cover two of the songs, Secret Agent Man and California Dreamin'. We are working on several more from that era including: Reach Out I'll Be There, Something In The Air, Time of The Season are good candidates.
