Canada has become the Nation of the double standard.
Geo: All countries think that the folks that they don’t want are much worse than the people that other countries are rejecting Doug.
You have had a hand in all of that….ever think of a column on KFRG/KXFG/KVFG/KEZN? They deserve some props…..just my view.
Geo: Ahh, but I do have some Frog stories, Tom, after being involved with the Frog for a few years myself. I remember your new bride from Russia saying after she finally arrived in America, “Tom, I can’t believe that you live this close to Disneyland (50 miles) and you’re not there every day? Or how about you and I being very aware of the fact that he who has the best-looking ladies on their arm at the party, owns the party. I remember our killing it that night in Malibu. Then there’s the night after eating at Spago’s in Beverly Hills, you graciously carried a fair maiden’s doggy bag down the street to an exclusive new club for her. They, of course, got right in got in but after getting some disparaging looks from the bouncers, we were rejected. Also, your ability to get a Cardinal who wore cowboy boots to bless the new studios. As I recall we had a great book. Tom, the Muses give me this stuff but they do it chronologically, I’m not at the Frog days yet but I will be. Buckle up!
Steve Michaels: KZZY to KLLS in San Antonio. I didn’t know what greatness I was with when I was in the Alamo City. Thanks, George!
Jim Ford: I loved the Class FM format which I listened to in Wichita on KLZS. It played mostly currents and recurrents and didn’t get too old. I really liked the concept.
JJ: Yes, I always thought it was very interesting how politicians get so wealthy on their salary, hmmm.
Geo: They’re all just a heartbeat away from jail at all times Jenn Jenn.
Believe me, George, I happen to like a WIDE variety of music types…from dance to easy listening…rock, folk, ballads, R & B, country…even hip-hop and Rachmaninoff!…to name only a few.
Like you say, “…lots of memories.” I happen to think IN THE AIR TONIGHT (Phil Collins) is still a winner…and would love to have been in the control room to play DON’T BE FALLING IN LOVE – AS SHE’S WALKING AWAY (Zac Brown Band – w/Alan Jackson) etc., etc…
Could Pandora or Spotify be today’s KVIL? I hear them EVERYWHERE!
Oh well, enough said…my 50-second+ break is way over. Glad you put the blog together. Really. Over and O U T…Jack.
Keep trucking, my friend.
