Bye, Bye Bob Billings

Not to be outdone by Bob Barker, Brockville‘s Bob Billings of Billings Home Hardware is finally packing up all that stuff out front of his store and closing up shop.

Rich Little (has been) in quite a number of times…

But as we bid farewell to one city icon, we pay tribute to two others. In his own weird way, the Invincible Vince Brockvlog seamlessly ties in the recent release of Healy & Orr’s new CD “Old Dirt Roads” while he interviews Bob Billings’ neighbours.

And finally, a young tribute band to Healy & Orr, “Healier and Orrier” (Zach Havens and Andrew Haggith) give us a little sweet street beat; unplugged.
