The Oswego Music Hall will have two singer and songwriters — James Lee Stanley and Cliff Eberhardt — on stage together to open its spring season March 31 at 8 p.m.

Stanley, born in Philadelphia, Pa., has been recording and performing since he was 14. He has toured consistently since he returned from the USAF (as a Chinese linguist) and has performed up to three hundred dates a year since then with such diverse acts as Bonnie Raitt, Robin Williams, Nicolette Larson and even Bill Cosby.

The Thomas G. Cantine Jr. Memorial Scholarship was established after the untimely death of Thomas G. Cantine Jr, who was an active amateur radio operator for over 50 years. Obtaining his license at the age of 13 in 1957, he held the call sign: W2TQF.

He taught amateur radio classes, was a volunteer examiner, active in ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service), RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service) and was a charter member of the Fulton Amateur Radio Club and served as the president of the radio club for several terms.
