Who is that dapper gent behind the giant red letter A, giving the *proud-to-be* sign and proclaiming he’s from Aurora, Illinois? It’s Andy Aurora, a character concocted by Aurora city officials and used during the mid-1960s as a statement of pride and optimism in the town . . .
See the Andy video . . .
"Songs for Aurora", an new album of music showcasing Aurora's history and character, was released in February, 2012 by Bradley Green and his eponymously named band, Bradley Keven Green.
