Otis Redding Day!- Celebrate in Macon Georgia this weekend.

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695

Sadly Macon lost the music hall of fame this year, but will always be Otis Redding's city.  This weekend  you can celebrate.  Otis Redding was born 70 years ago today.  His music will live on forever.  There are celebrations all weekend long, but today from noon until 10 p.m. you can celebrate with free music and free ice cream at the Third Street Park. If you listen, you can't help but feel his music.

Tammy, 

You gave me a smile thinking about Otis' song - Sitting on the dock of the bay BEFORE I saw the link.  Life is good.  

All the best, Michelle

Michelle- you know he died in that plane crash when I was only two.  I likely only appreciated lulaby's at the time.  But I love his music.  It seems timeless.

Tammy - - one of the real classics when records were records I keep thinking I should convert my collection of 78's, 45, and 33's to digital but then I give my head a shake ..... they just wouldn't be the same without the old juke box sound.

Kathy- I have a turn table.  I still love to listen once in a while... sratches and all.

Jane- just reaches right into your soul.

I should use Sitting on the Dock of the Bay when I post waterfront scenes. I love his music and would enjoy this.

Mona- let's make it a plan sometime down the road to hang out.

Toni- yeah, won't work so good with MY lake, but... well maybe people could use their imaginations a little.  I love his music too.

I was 15 when Sitting on the Dock of the Bay was recorded and remember it fondly. It wasn't psychedelic like most stuff I listened to back then, but it definitely had soul.

Elizabeth- you've been on my mind.  Tomorrow will be a year since I signed up for the blood marrow program.  yesterday I renewed that commitment.  I'll always be grateful I found out about that from you.  And yes, it definitely has soul.
