Ah Leah!

Now there's a song you don't hear on the radio everyday or every decade for that matter. Say what you want about the "jack " music format but they do play a wide variety. You're certainly not going to hear Donnie Iris on DC101 or the classic rock station 94.7.

Back in the day, specifically my Washington Park Ice Rink Day, Donnie Iris and the Cruisers had a couple of big hits, well at least on Pittsburgh Radio; Ah Leah!, Love is like a rock, My Girl and the criminally ignored and personal favorite Sweet Merrilee.

Turns out Donnie is still in the Pittsburgh area, still tours, got himself a new album and a website.

Check it out here (for nostalgic value I might just get myself a shirt):
