Yes, we finally had a winner in last week’s FLASHBACK FOTO contest. Congrats!

We’re not going to be holding a contest this week. Instead, we’re going to devote the FLASHBACK FOTO to honoring one of Nippertown’s most beloved musicians, Ernie Williams, who passed away on Wednesday (March 21).

This is one of our fave photos of Ernie and the boys, who were apparently auditioning a new guitarist for the band prior to a Tri-City ValleyCats game in Troy last summer…
