NOTE: If you have problems with the audio player, you probably need to upgrade to the latest version of Flash, which you can do for free, here. If you *still* can’t play it, go here for a QuickTime version of this song. And if you have a Windows 7 phone, read the note at the bottom of the QuickTime page…

Recording Credit: Erin Anne Beirne, with iPhone 4 using iRecorder Pro. (Yes, we know, it wasn’t positioned in the best place to capture the whole band for the first few songs, including this one. We’ll work on getting better recordings when we reconvene next fall… may even with a “real” recording device!)

    That brings back memories…. I attended G.P. Vanier Senior Secondary in Courtenay, B.C. back in the mid-70s…. I was a member of the school’s stage band, and Funky Turtle was our theme song.
