Good ol' Dad. He's strong, he's kind and he has a lot of wisdom to share. He's there when you need help fixing your car or building a bookshelf. He knows when to crack a joke at just the right moment, cheesy as it may be.
So this playlist is for you, Dad. The Northeast Ohio Patch editors dedicate these songs to you.
