Roger at Philadelphia Folk Festival in 1991

This is the day Gamble and I had breakfast, Dave Gahr took that great picture of us kneeling on the road in front of the motel, and we drove out to the fest – then did a Humor Workshop. The next day Gamble did his last main stage performance. I seem to recall.

The Speakeasy ticket is from the first time Roger was on the bill with Gamble and the Humor Workshop at PFF was the last time. The misspellings of Roger’s name *R-O-G-E-R* *D-E-I-T-Z* are legendary.
