The NEW HUDSON EXIT was the name of a teen dance club Arfie helped build in 1966 while in high school in Canfield, OH. The name comes from a freeway exit signed one of Arfie's friends pilfered on a trip earlier that year. Arfie named the dance club after that sign - it had a cool, sixties ring to it. The club only lasted six months but the name lived on. Firstly in a Youngstown, OH rock band who adopted it as their name (you can still find some of their songs on You Tube). And now here.
