Thunderbird Bar Intimate History https://larrygoodell.wordpress.com/2015/05/12/thunderbird-bar-intimate-history-2/ Notice that there are 3 links at the end of this blog post to 3 interviews I did with the friends who were integral to the Thunderbird in its heyday (it went through several stages). Some of the interviews are chaotic, some repetitious but I did the best I could preserving what was on tape.

I want to say a prayer
For all that has been given
All that has been received, It is said
They are all the same.
100 bluebirds swarmed the back yard.
