This is the final appearance of Birmingham Rocks on BIRMINGHAM REWOUND.  We have been here since September 2013 and everyone has decided to check out and take some time to refresh. At least that is what I’m going to do.  Maybe later there will be new things and new directions for the website.

So we will close and send you all home.  But you may want to visit Starlite Radio where Birmingham Rocks will appear under WWRB (When We Remember Birmingham) episodes and you may continue to enjoy local musicians all day long if that’s what you want to do.

We’ve enjoyed our association with Birmingham Rewound and thank all those involved with this site and allowing us to share.
