    Kicks, Hungry, good songs. Remember watching "Where the Action Is".

    That was a long time ago. Get well soon Paul.

    Wow, this is sad news!

    I remember back around the summer 1965 or 66 there was a half hour TV show hosted by PR and the Raiders. I remember it being zany and just good clean fun.

    Good news.....he was on radio today, cancer, been in treatment.

    PR said he felt so good today that he, at 75, was going to try to out to play again, would be sitting on a stool (I guess to save energy).

    This is his 3rd time around with cancer. He wanted to thank all the fans and his band mates for all their prayers.....said "prayer works!"

    A good friend of mine saw the band a couple of years ago at a private party and they were a hoot and very very good at their craft.

    My fave was "Just Like Me"
