Bert Sommer Concert
Spotlight On The Artist is excited to debut a recently-discovered time capsule—Bert Sommer and his Brockport buddies Johnny Rabb and Rob Landis, recorded live in 1975 at the Wine Press in Rochester, NY on WCDB. The reel-to-reel tape features popular covers from the era, songs from Bert’s debut album "The Road To Travel", and a never-before-heard composition—written, of course, for a girl. Join us, along with Johnny Rabb, Bert’s longtime friend, as he shares his memories of the ’70s with Bert, and how he stumbled across this buried treasure.
