My First Concert

The first concert I ever saw was Jerry Lee Lewis. He played at Delaware Park in about 1977. My mom won the tickets on one of the AM radio stations. She loved listening to the radio and seemed to always be trying to win something. He played on a portable stage and played his big hits like Great Balls of Fire and when the set was done a tractor pulled the portable stage right off the race track with I'm and his band on it. We didn't stay for the horse races but I fell in love with seeing live music.
