Greetings to my fellow Cecilians, Phil D and John K!

Bob Sarlatte was a few years behind us at St. Cecilia and his sister, Nancy, was in our class. I'm sure, like me, Phil and John still remember Little Bobby following his sister around the schoolyard making a pest out of himself!

To those who never met Bob, Butch Whacks has a nice website, which contains a charming interview with him. He gives special mention to the Sunset and St. Cecilia.

Bob also has his own site:

During my college years, I saw a Butch Whacks concert at The Inn of the Beginning in Cotati. It was great!
