Peter Waters Drums Up Business!   June 22nd, 2011

Back in May W&S were invited to the Icom Dinner, in Dayton, Ohio, on the eve of the 2011 Hamvention. During the evening there was live music, and Icom invited anybody among the guests who would like to play with the band. Peter Waters, G3OJV, is a drummer in his spare time, and he volunteered. Peter played one of the evening sets with the band and here he is in action in the photo. A lot different from his day job!
