    We were truly blessed in that golden era of the early 80s. Great reflections from Eric in this interview.

    Our thanks to both Eric and Eric Junior for Part 2. Like all of the previous Parra greats that we’ve interviewed, Eric was both humble and welcoming. I truly believe that we have been able to hear some insights from Eric that I’ve never heard before. How great was hearing his thoughts about Semi!

    It was great spending time with both Senior and Junior. Seeing that both of these two Eels are still passionate about the club was great to hear too.

    Both were generous and giving of their time and a pleasure to listen to.

    Hugely thankful for the time these guys give TCT.
