  1. This routine was very inspiring. In fact, we listened to the podcast right after we watched the video twice, and then went to the Shores to jam with Dave Murphy for 2 hours (for the third day in a row, no less).

    Anyway, back to the podcast- I learned so much about Donnie and Allen that I never knew. The Overall players of that era didn’t mix or mingle much with the freestylers, though we knew some of them.

    So, thanks guys, for the great history lesson and filling in those gaps.
