- Connie Morella, US House of Representatives

An excellent blend of important local history and nostalgia...wonderful memories of the Spanish Ballroom, where I used to announce the big bands.

- Mac McGarry, NBC Television Host of "It's Academic"

Brings back precious memories of days gone by: going to Glen Echo Park with my mom and dad - a childhood highlight, and later as Bozo the Clown for another generation of Glen Echo Park kids.
