Richie’s Musical Tribute To Mayor Jerry Jennings -[AUDIO]
it must be bitter sweet for Jerry Jennings. It has to be tough to leave that position as Albany's mayor, but he has been there for over 20 years, and he deserves to relax. (But not before he gets picked on one more time!!)
Here's the song parody. If you want the explanation, it's below (lyrics included)
Mr Tan Man your the man of the hour
I've had the opportunity to meet Jerry Jennings several times. We had them on the air, and I've also bumped into him once or twice. Here's one example – and one of our Alive at Five Events this past summer.
Can I honestly be a name dropper and say that I know him? Not really. I don't know him, but somehow after chewing the fat with him you feel like you do, and that was (and still is) his great appeal. We always would kid him about his permanent tan, so I decided to include that in the song tribute. I hope he gets the chance to hear this - knowing that it was done with the utmost respect for a great Albany leader. (Best of luck to incoming Mayor Kathy Sheehan. I'm sure she will do just as well)
