There's no shortage of rowdy clubs for young folks at the Shore. That's great, if you happen to be a rowdy young folk.

One such place is the Crab Trap, 2 Broadway Rd., on the Somers Point Circle, Somers Point; 609-927-7377. The long-popular seafood restaurant and lounge has been a favorite of the 40-plus crowd for many years. In fact, it's not unusual to find party animals in their 80s kicking up their wingtips here.

Yet Scott has languished in near-obscurity for decades - in large measure because some pockets of society could not deal with this pioneer's fragile, feminine- sounding, Billie Holidayish voice and slight appearance (the result, he says, of a hormonal disorder)
