Ask Nipper: “My Town Albany”?

May 18th, 2012, 1:00 pm by Greg

We’ve decided to retire the weekly Flashback Foto contest for a while, and in its place we hope to be running a new feature, Ask Nipper, in which readers seek verification and details about various Capital Region music, arts and entertainment memories that may have become somewhat foggy over the years.

Our first Ask Nipper entry comes from Norman Kee, who writes:

I recall WQBK-FM DJ Lin Brehmer playing a song called “My Town Albany,” maybe for a Hump Day Unusual Moment. A friend happened to be running a tape, and put it on a mix tape for me. I have tried over the years to find out anything about the song, but have been able to. My friend the Interweb denies it exists. Someone out there in Nippertown knows the answer. Please help!

If you’ve got a question for Nipper, please send it to
