Celebrate The Life Of LJ Palardy!
Words by Eva Weber.
On February 16th, local music folks will be lighting up the night for a festive remembrance of local DJ Joseph "LJ" Palardy. LJ was a well-loved local DJ who hosted a program on The Radiator and the 'LJ's Dream' radio show on WRUV every Sunday for over twenty years, sharing his love of jazz with the Burlington community and beyond. The public is invited to join us to celebrate the life of father, friend, and mentor LJ Palardy on Saturday, February 14th at the North End Studio A in Burlington, Vermont, from 8pm to midnight. There will be live musical entertainments, dancing and open mike for reminiscences and anecdotes, and donations will be accepted for the Vermont Respite House. In lieu of flowers, LJ requested that letters of stories/debates/altercations with him be mailed to his children, Douglas and Michele Palardy at 81 Hood St A, Winooski, VT 05404. Photos of LJ posted at www.facebook.com/lionel.palardy will be used to make a sildeshow! Musicians/DJs interested in participating: please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org.
