I admit it: I thought Gio was about to "be Gio" in the 5th.

It's early. :stir:

...  or over your age.    That was one of the go to cheap wines in the 70s.

From google:

Ripple was a fortified wine produced by E & J Gallo Winery[3] that was popular in the United States, particularly in the 1970s. Possessing a low 11% ABV (lower than modern table wines), it was originally marketed to "casual" drinkers.[4] Due to its low price, it had a reputation as a drink for alcoholics and the destitute. It was popular among young drinkers, both underage and college students. It is no longer produced.

A reference to White Port Lemon Juice? Or to the station that had been WABC FM, New York? They played an old rock&roll song called "White Port Lemon Juice" when they switched call-signs, but I was not sure that White Port Lemon Juice had been real...

I remember drinkin' WIR when it was like 25 or 30% alcohol (probably 11%).    We used to call it the WIR Route.

I brought a couple of six packs of St Ides to a Yo Yo Ma show at Wolf Trap once.  No one around asked for one!

Winner! FZ used to play a song called WPLJ. It went, "White Port &Lemon Juice, ooo what it due to you, to you, to you..."
Thought Mit would have that one...

My band plays Drinkin' Wine by Sticks, his is the first recording but apparently that song came back from France after WW2 with veterans who drove trucks in the Red Ball Express. Original lyrics were, "Drinkin' wine mother f@cker, drinkin' wine - pass that bottle to me." Had to clean that one up for recording....
