The Cat,The Dude, and the Formation of Hideaway Records-Rayman’s Trac Two

I'd like to tell you a story, but first, let me ask you a question. Where can teenagers go around here to just hang out? The street corner or the Mall is about it right? It didn't used to be that way. Back in the day, a man (I'll call him Cat) got the idea of having a place the teenagers could hang out and listen to some live music. He called it a Teenage Club, and if you were thirteen to eighteen, you could come out and be entertained by live bands, maybe have a burger and coke as no alcohol was  available. He called the place "The Hideaway." Kids came in throngs, and every Friday and Saturday nite, the Hideaway would have four hundred or more kids.

Elvis Week Spotlight, August 14th, 1956, And 1958

As Elvis Week continues, we must remember that the first couple of years Elvis was loved by many, but also disliked by many. Many males disliked Elvis for no other reason than their girlfriends or wives loved him. There were also some in government, state and local that thought he was promoting a bad image. Some in television and newspaper joked and laughed about him, as well as this new thing called rock and roll. In later years, Elvis proved their fears and accusations wrong however.

Pugs, Rayman’s Best Buddies

We have Pugs in our home, three to be exact. Baby was our first, then came  Ozzie (the crazy one), and Dolly, Ozzie's sister. They very protective, a little stubborn, and need to be with one of us all the time. It's funny, they can hear a leaf fall outside the house, but fall asleep when I'm blasting rock n roll throughout the house. I've included some history on the pug for those who are looking for pet. Pugs are great companions, great with kids too.
