Jerry has lived a lot of places, but Northwest Arkansas, as he's been known to say, "really soothes his soul." A local resident for about the last 20 years, Jerry's claim to fame is that he is a long-time member of The Lovin' Spoonful, a band best known for the 1960s hit song, "Do You Believe in Magic."

"Drum Goddess"

Valerie Damon, because she would be one to follow, it'd be like Ripley's, but it'd be Eureka's Believe It Or Not!

"1/3 of a Tree"
