Vintage 1972 Pabst Blue Ribbon ” School Year Calendar”

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

It’s time to highlight another great find. This great pick is newly listed on our Etsy shop. A vintage 1972 Pabst Blue Ribbon “School Year Calendar”. This Cool advertising piece measures 8″ wide by 68 1/4″ long. It features a lovely Flapper girl and would be incredible framed. I know there is a Man Cave out there that needs this.

Locally I will be bringing some new things to our booth (M-9) at the Mega Mall this Sunday. If you are in Lansing stop by. The treasure hunting’s always great at the Mega Mall.

This week our “Pick” is going to Discogs. It’s The Mugwumps, who are the Mugwumps you might ask. Well, in the summer of 1964, before they were part of the Mamas and the Papas, Cass Elliot and Denny Doherty along with Jim Hendricks (The Lamp of Childhood) and Zal Yanovsky (The Lovin’ Spoonful) got together to record these nine songs. In these early recordings it is easy to see that these people were on their way to greatness. It is folk, pop and full of heart.
