Luckily, I’d lucked out because as it turned out, I was much better at playing radio than I ever was playing guitar.
Over the years, I’ve worked with a lot of great radio stations but nobody cares. All they want to hear about was what it was like to share the stage with fellow Winnipeggers, Neil Young, Burton Cummings, (The Guess Who) Randy Bachman, (BTO) and open for legends like Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash?
Mama was born, his buppa got into the radio business and kicked a little ass. In fact, I think I may have become as good at radio as Burton, Randy, and Neil, are at what they do.
Nothing happens by accident, if it happened, you can bet it was planned – Franklin D. Roosevelt.
I think it’s a lot easier to speak than it is to listen.
Why is the Coronavirus so political? Where any of the other diseases such as Smallpox, Measles, Spanish Flu, Yellow Fever, Scarlet Fever, Diphtheria, and Polio as political as this?
Speaking of the virus, it may not be over, but the new ratings indicate talking about it is.
I wonder how Vince Lombardi would have reacted to knee bending (a submissive gesture) and political correctness?
I wonder what God had on mind when he put women in charge of sex?
What with the Corona Virus hanging on, I can’t help but think about how long Cancer has been around and still no cure in sight. So far it’s resisted all the money and prayers thrown at it and the only real results I see, are rich researchers and fundraisers.
Don’t you hate it when the movie makers cheap out and put bogus tunes into a movie and all the actors sing and dance to them like they’re hits?
So with the power companies doing power outages whenever they want to in California, I’m re-thinking my position on “going electric.”
Until women feel strong enough to enter the workplace without “war paint,” they’ll never be equal.
I wonder why they’re not protesting and rioting in Mexico, aren’t things worse there?
Geo: I always enjoyed your visits, Doug, and because I did, I remember taking a flyer on a couple of your tunes. However, as I read your comment this morning, all that popped into my head was an embarrassing moment that occurred during one of your fun visits.
When I was hired as the PD of CFTR, I always wore Beatle Boots, which I continued to do even when they made me the Station Manager. Anyway, when you were shown into my office one day, I arrogantly put my feet up on my desk only to discover a black leather boot on my left foot and a brown suede one on the other. You were so cool; you didn’t even mention it. 🙂
Doug Chappell: I thought it was a new fashion…considered trying it myself.
Geo: What a great station, Tom, and other than a few of our adventures in LA, my favorite moment was, not only did you got a Cardinal to come in and bless the new studios but beneath all his finery, he was wearing Cowboy Boots. I believe our next book was the best ever.
