  1. What is up with the 2014 Show of Shows? Where, when and what time? I think they are back in Philly this year. Is that true?

    • As of now, there is no Show of Shows scheduled for 2014. There is some discussion for some type of performance, but I have not learned of anything being finalized.

  2. Is there going to be a scoring sheet this year?

  3. Steve I am a long time N.E. Philly resident. There was an ice cream stand at Risingsun and Cottman Ave. The name of the stand was Custards Last Stand. On the roof there was a sign with an ice cream cone with and an arrow through the top of the ice cream cone. This stand was there for thirty years, long before the string band used this as their theme. In short the band borrowed the name and theme. I have listened to the announcer wonder out loud where this name came from. It makes a great theme but was in use many years before the band used it.
