I Can’t Help But Think About My Friend Tommy Murphy

It was August 23, 2012.  I had a chance to get up early and enjoy the morning before heading to work and I was able to help a friend in need. So off to work I went feeling good about the day ahead. Then all of a sudden, I heard the "ping" noise on my computer at work alerting me of a new message.  For some reason it caught my attention. I don't know why. I get hundreds of messages and "pings" a week, but this one stood out. So I opened it and my heart dropped as I read it.

Some will celebrate St. Patrick’s weekend in Quincy’s parade Saturday, some in The District’s Pub Crawl Saturday night, and some in the Kelly’s Fun  Run for the Quincy YWCA on Sunday morning in Quincy.

This is How the St. Patrick’s Parade Started!

It was a morning in 1986 when I was working at 99-Q Radio with Dennis Oliver. He was just finishing up his morning show and I was beginning my mid-day stint (after working the morning show on WTAD earlier that morning). It was about a week before St. Patrick’s Day and I went up to D.O. and said we need to have a St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Quincy.
