"Monbo Time"

I thought I would alert you all to a very special project for a really special cause.

"Monbo Time" is a cool little three minute and six second ditty about the Red Sox and former pitcher Bill Monbouquette. It was performed by The Remains, a band of four Boston University students from the 1960s. The band got together and recorded that song in support of Monbo, who was diagnosed with leukemia two years ago.

The Remains will be donating 50% of all sales of the song to the treatment of cancer and research. It is available now from, and also will be available on iTunes shortly and other online outlets. Check out the lyrics and a clip from the song here. The lyrics were penned by Fred Cantor and David Levin, based on an old Remains tune called "Time Keeps Movin' On."

Here's a nice recent article about the Remains and the song from NESN. Bill is now in remission in his fight against leukemia after a successful stem cell transplant he had over a year ago.

It really is a cool song, and well worth your support. I wish The Remains every success with the single, and Bill Monbouquette godspeed in his fight against leukemia.
