Robin Lane was my favorite band for a few years.  Awesome live I never could 
fathom why stardom passed her by.  I convinced our PD at WLNH to play "When 
Things Go Wrong" and we would get lots of requests.

Now as Dr Laura would say: "And your questinn for me is?"

I saw Robin Lane live at UNH.  The Rings were the sub headliner.  I've been 
racking my brain trying to remember who opened. It was a Green Day style trio 
that was a popular local Boston band 79-81.  Not the Real Kids.  Name that band!
