Edgar Winter brought his band to the area earlier this month with a performance at Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center in Sugar Loaf, NY. The show was presented by WPDH and the station gave away a ton of tickets. Feedback on the show was good from listener's who attended. Listener Doug Kane said, "It was a good show". The band played a rockin, extended version of Frankenstein and the sound was great at Sugar Loaf PAC".
