Victory Mills – I Want To Write You A Theme Song, But Do You Still Exist?
I’m happy to be back from a great vacation, but chomping at the bit to write a new “Your Town Thursday” theme song. I had a request from a listener to do one for Victory Mills, but I have a question first.
I know where it is. It’s in Saratoga County near Schuylerville. But I also was told by a Facebook “friend” that I had better write the song before April 1st, because the town is in danger of being dissolved. I googled this subject, but haven’t seen any definite decision one way or another. If someone out there can set me straight on this, it would help me a lot before I start writing this.
Now if the town is still going strong, then I would love it if you could share some info about it. Here’s the type of stuff I’d be looking for:
Name of the Town (duhh)
What it’s best known for?
Well known attractions or businesses (I can actually sneak you in a free plug!)
Funny quirks (the red light in the middle of town hasn’t worked in 10 years etc)
Quick historical facts (don’t get all “Wikipedia” on me- just a few bullet points will do)
You can copy and paste this into an email and send to Richie@wgna.com, or just put the answers in the comment section! The song will air on Thursday’s Sean and Richie Show, typically between 8:45-8:50am. It will also be on this website on one of my blogs.
And if you have photos to go with your facts, by all means send them to the same email.
If you’d like to hear songs done in the past, you can by going to the “Your Town” archives. Thanks, folks.
