When I was waiting for a phone call, I put in the first episode in the season 4 boxed set of CSI: MIAMI. I only got about twenty minutes into the show before my phone call came through, but it was very colorful, almost as colorful as seeing the show in HD.

I watched it myself not long ago.  The other night I watched Little Manhattan, which also had a lot of familiar shots.

First rock LP was Journey's "Evolution"

Soundtrack: "Star Wars" (actually Santa got me that one. First I bought might have been "How to Suceed". What a terrible album cover that has.)

Original Cast LP: "Sound of Music"

Edisaurus-
Do I remember Channel 69? Oh boy, it helped make my first year in Atlanta more bearable. We moved there in 1985. I would get home from school every day and watch the shows on there. You must know the great Janet Darr, and The Butcher! This was the last truly local broadcast TV there was, of the old school variety. I wrote to Janet Darr once and she read my letter on the TV.

And I remember the day the music died, and Channel 69 dumped the music videos altogether. And the poor Butcher, who had been a heavy metal show host, was stuck showing kiddie cartoons as "Captain Butcher."

I credit two things in Atlanta with giving me such eclectic musical tastes, and one was Channel 69. The other was WREK Radio, the freeform station from Georgia Tech.

Ginny your Wolverines are not being as nice to the Hoosiers as they were to the Ball State team.

Heading downstairs now to begin my evening of viewing. I think it will be CAROUSEL. After that, I may watch one of the TV shows from Thursday or Friday night.

And the Buckeyes weren't very nice to Northwestern, either.  Sure am glad I took next Saturday as a vacation day!  I just hope the Michigan/Ohio State game lives up to the hype.

Well I thought I better pop in for a minute, and I'm also surprised at what a light day of postings its been today. I realize that I sure haven't helped much over the past 3 or 4 days though myself.

DR Laura.......how can you be over in L.A., and not pop in to the book signing in Glendale this evening??  There might even be House Of Pies or something afterwards.

Seriously, I would love to hear Bruce read a couple of the stories out loud and in person.  The only problem is that a couple of them would be either too powerful or too emotional to listen to.

I'm holding all good thoughts for a great turnout for BK this evening.

And some sales wouldn't hurt either.  From my lips to God's ears.

I'm just recording a copy (shame) of June Bronhill singing Sacred Songs (maybe that's scared songs) for a friend in NYC.

OLC BIRDIE is fun, DR MATTH.  Interesting....I like Peter Marshall a lot, and Marty Wilde is a terrific Conrad Birdie.

DH Richard just arrived home from his week in Wisconsin.  We're going to eat the taco dinner I've prepared.

Bye for now.

The late great June Bronhill was a class act; she was never scary.

Janet still lives here in Atlanta. I know so many guys who had mad crushes on Janet! There was a get-together of some of the old VMC folks a few years back but I was out of town. I did hear that Janet is a mom and has aged well. The Butcher started a few weeks after I left. Our boss was Mike Greene, who became head of NARAS for many years until he left after allegations of sexual harassment.

It was fun working in live TV. Our technical director is still one of my close friends, and he was always ready to experiment---dragging the cameras outside the studio on days it snowed, or there was an eclipse, or reacting to things going on in Atlanta that day. I met tons of rock stars, including some of my heroes, like Alan Price. Loudon Wainwright and John Cougar (pre-Mellencamp) were very down to earth and thought nothing of riding around in my crappy little VW bug.
Nicest: Huey Lewis, Robert Fripp, Adam Ant, Cheap Trick, Chris De Burgh, Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden)
Bitchiest: Rick James, Roseanne Cash (but Rodney Crowell was a dream)
Stinkiest: Stiv Bator-Lords of the New Church  R.I.P. Stiv...
Best Personal Hygiene: Jon Bon Jovi--nice manners, too!
Worst Interview: The Bad Brains (they were stoned and fell asleep!)

Memories....

I gather the baby naming is what is done for a daughter in orthodox Jewish circles, since the girl obviously doesn't have  a bris.

First rock:  well, not really rock, but I bought the first 3 Brasil '66 albums on my 11th birthday with all the money I got.  I also got the 45 of Hey Jude/Revolution sometime in there, which probably counts more as rock.  :)

First soundtrack:  I think the first one I bought myself was probably West Side Story, but it might have been Sweet Charity.

First cast album:
 I really can't recall.  Maybe My Fair Lady.

The Tigard Pops had their Carole King concert today.  We had a large, appreciative audience.  Now I am off to play bossa nova with a quartet I've recently joined.  We have a regular gig at a really nice wine bar/restaurant.  I am not a wine devotee but the owner gave me a free glass of Pinot the last time we were there that was to die for, so I think I will repeat that tonight.  :)

I just remembered, I got Blood, Sweat & Tears that year, too, so that would count as my first real rock album.

And wish me luck:  I'm singing two songs in Portuguese tonight.  What's "oy" in Portuguese?
