Re: Rock and Roll Research Study

I was a semi-regular there, usually for the Sunday night jam sessions. Work has gotten in the way of that. I first met Sally when her foster daughter began playing in The Miracle League of Michigan. She then recognized me one night at the Goose and we became good pals. Have you ever seen her house f...

Re: Music squeeze on some stations

Two songs I recall that were released by the record companies notably faster on 45 rpm were Steely Dan's "Do it Again" and Bob Dylan's "Tangled up in Blue". The first example was especially egregious; when it was played on a turntable that was already sped up (as many were), it sounded like Alvin an...

Re: Don Cherry fired from Sportsnet

"You People" certainly has became a dirty phrase of our century. Back circa 1973, I took a class as a high school senior on minority groups. The final assignment was a lengthy paper on a minority group that the writer wasn't a member of. In addition to the typical grading criteria, there was anothe...

Re: Rock and Roll Research Study

To speak to those people is no more difficult than contacting Sally Omally Schroder on Facebook. MANY of the rock and Roll scene people still are around and meet frequently at local gigs. You can easily run into CREEM's first photographer or actual players. Sally handles social media for Jim McCart...

Re: If Southfield Public School isn't going to operate 88.3 WSHJ properly...

Doug Banks too. Kicking myself for not mentioning him. A H*** talent and a wonderful guy. When he flew in to attend the WSHJ reunion at my house, I was wondering how the money and fame he'd earned would affect him. It hadn't. It was just like he was still in high school. He was even happier to see ...

Re: If Southfield Public School isn't going to operate 88.3 WSHJ properly...

As much as it pains me, I agree. Started there in 1973. Honeyman was there with us. Lots of great talent there for a time, including Dave Fuller, Mike Benson, Dick Shafran and, a few years before us, Pat St. John. We even showed up at least once in the Arbitron ratings. It was clear some years ago t...

trump won the state by 30 points in 2016. This doesn't bode well for the sociopath-in-chief.

Re: The Political Climate

I don't like the political climate. I am tired of seeing all the fighting and bickering on the news. I don't like any of the presidential candidates...complete trash. I'm not too fond of what we have now. There have been positives of a Trump presidency but dammit he's just not presidential timber. ...

Re: Sick of all the Climate Change Bullshit

I would counter and say our climate would be changing if we didn't exist. And it will continue to change after we are all long gone. So we should just ignore it and make to effort to mitigate against it? Some people just can't handle their worldview being challenged. Cognitive dissonance is strong ...

Re: Bag Daddy Blows Himself Up. Donald Bigly Booed.

Later - he shows up at the World Series game to bask in the afterglow of his Sunday news conference. Instead - the stadium full of Americans loudly boos him. And some holding “Veterans for Impeachment” signs are also prominently protesting. Despite Trump’s reveal of the dangerous yet successful US ...

It should be an exciting series, full of pitching battles, my favorite type of game. I have no preference over who wins -- but I can't root for JV anymore.

Unfortunately, they stopped making Republicans like him about 40 years ago.
