On July 26th, Father Ed and myself attended the Reuben Studdard, Clay Aiken concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, FL. It was a wonderful evening, made all the more stellar because of the backstage passes acquired for Father and myself by Reuben’s uncle, Fred Williams. I have known Fred for better than 20 years, and for the past 17 years “Uncle Fred” has been our director at EWTN. We all had a blast as we regaled with music spanning four decades – from the 60’s through the 90’s. If the truth be known, Father Ed and I were both on our feet, “snapping our fingers and shuffling our feet” to the tunes.
