Another Legend Celebrated...it's Bonzo's birthday...in Ahmet's House

Mothers Day Everywhere!

It's Mothers Day in the US...and so in honor of moms, grandmothers, mother-in-laws and all the women in our lives, we are going back to the archives to dig deep into the story of the women of Atlantic. Tony has lined up loads of music...as he prepares for a family day for the mother of his children. So much great music...and this gives us all some time to reflect. Exciting times for Ahmet's House...follow along!

To Run, to Rock...Like Ahmet!

Tony is traveling today, after a fantastic weekend of music and great fellowship. New York hosted Eric Clapton at Madison Square Garden. And Eric hosted us! The Ahmet's House team of Tony and Eric Koval was honored to escort Mrs. Mica Ertegun, as guests of Mr. Clapton. The picture says it all.

Tony and Eric flanking Mica Ertegun, and also with Emine Pirhasan and Ahmet and Mica's long time driver, Armandio


Ahmet's House will return next Sunday. Tonight, check out the Facebook album at https://www.facebook.com/wbkm.org

Sincere thanks to Eric Clapton, Michael Eaton and to Cecil Offley for making this seamless...
