I mentioned in my last Blog that I was visiting Reid Reker in Las Vegas. I’m out here for a couple of reasons one of which was to celebrate his freedom and the other because we are working on a very special project together. While there I thought I might as well do some more research on what Women really want so I gathered together a couple of small focus groups (pictured below) and continued my probes hoping once again to get a little closer to unlocking the mystery of women to learn some usable information I can use on the radio.
Speaking of Vegas I had a very interesting and exciting dinner with Emmy and Grammy award winning musical director Nancy Gregory plus her friend Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame producer and songwriter Jeff Barry. It seems to me that Jeff must have written most of the huge hits of the 60’s and 70’s. I mean can you resist singing along with Be My Baby, Da Do Ron Ron, River Deep Mountain High, Chapel Of Love, I honestly Love You, Hanky Panky, Doo Wah Diddy Diddy only to name but a few … And what about Sugar Sugar which even Frank Zappa was once caught singing along to by a few of his horrified fans. What a magical evening!
Whitney Houston made a lot of bad choices in her life including the wrong day to die … Music Radio was already pre recorded.
Speaking of Whitney she exposed Music Radio for what it really is now … Irrelevant! I wonder what Wall Street thinks about all that.
I have always believed that you adjust the Mechanics to fit the Art even though Radio now adjusts the Art to fit the Mechanics. How dare that bitch Whitney die on the wrong day and seeing as they could figure out how to adjust her they just skipped it.
The only thing you never have to wait for is the future it always starts tomorrow plus you still have 100% of the rest of your life ahead of you to accomplish something worthwhile. You might as well get started.
I read that keeping your mouth shut whenever you were in deep water might be a good idea. Ahh that explains it.
It sure didn’t take Cami long to go from being a child who was afraid of the dark to a teenager who wants to stay out all night.
Shouldn’t the people who attend Radio Conventions be a little fearful about the fact that if the Radio station can continue to operate without them, someone else may notice.
When I was a teen ambition entered my life for the first time only because I needed a car.
As you go across the dial in the morning have you noticed morning shows all seem to be doing the same bits. They must all be subscribing to the same show prep service. You would think at least one of them would go with the cheapest and the best … Their local Newspaper!
I understand that they are going to make a new Ghost Busters movie. Rick Moranis told me the first one only had one actor in it the rest were all writers. I wonder if they are going with the same concept in the next one.
Kathy McWilliams says we live in a era of smart phones and stupid people.
Strange thing is I relate a lot more to my Father now then I ever did when he was alive.
I always think of Michael Jordan being a decent human being but I don’t think the same of Kobe Bryant and don’t know why really. Maybe Michael just had had a better PR firm.
There are 7 billion people on the planet, I wonder how many of them can do something special.
With all the talk about how great some of the quarterbacks are today I wonder how good they would have been back in the day when the rules allowed you to almost kill them.
As selective as women are about who they want to marry it’s hard to imagine those marriages going wrong. But of course men not being selective enough may be one of the main reasons.
