"59th Street Bridge played the Wigan Casino a few times in the 60's. Once, the stage manager (I think his name was 'Alex' ??), got a small portable tape recorder and set it down at the back of the stage and recorded us. I know this is a one in a million shot - but we'd love to get a copy of that tape !! Any help out there? Thanks Bill..
