I am very excited about the fact that the long overdue reunion of all the folks who ever worked at CKY is being held in Winnipeg later this month on May 24th at a very fancy night club. I’ve also just been told that the Man who made me want to play guitar Ray St. Germain and my friend Burton Cummings of the Guess Who are going to honor us by singing a few tunes later on in the evening. How hot is that!
Mark Foley told me if Mitt made Condaleezza Rice his Vice President it would be a game changer which only could be trumped by Obama making Hillary his.
I mentioned to Lorenda Rae that I thought most successful Men were probably sexually overdriven. She said successful or not all Men still had one thing in common … Their one track minds!
Speaking of Lorenda she is definitely qualified to be in one of my special focus groups as I look for the answers about what women really want on the Radio.
Why do you feel compelled to tell a beautiful women what you would like to do to them, I’m pretty sure they already know.
You shouldn’t lie to anyone but the most important person you should never ever lie to is yourself.
You need to gain some new audience each day just to stay even.
How does Arbitron think that a person wearing a PPM device for months really reflects what his or her peers are listening to. With the Diary system new people were being being sampled each week so your station had a shot at some of Diaries finally getting to your fans.
Speaking of Diaries they were actually a better method for the clients because they only wrote down the stations they were actually listening to so they would actually hear the commercials. PPM claims people are listening to a station that they aren’t even aware of. Big difference between listening and hearing.
James W Hilliard not to be confused with James C Hilliard told me that 26% of the people in America between the age of 16 – 34 don’t have a drivers licence. No wonder the younger demos are disappearing from radio. A little tough for them to listen to the car Radio much if they don’t drive. And we thought they were leaving because Radio sucked … Silly us!
Wow I just saw an add for a Hip Hop Reunion show … Man the years are just flying by for me but crawling by for Cami and Nathaniel.
Speaking of family … All the girls in the Johns family Candis, Christina and Cami did and are doing very well at school. The Johns boys didn’t fare so well but I think we’ve got one coming, I’m pretty sure Grandson Nathaniel is going to blow us all away. His Mother wont give him any other choice is what I figure.
Candis once asked me if I won the lottery would I retire. Retire from what I asked her, when I was a kid Candis it was a thrill and an honor for me to hang out with all the Jocks and it still is, but now they pay me to do it why would I leave that.
Cami just texted me from her World History class where they were studying the 70’s. She said she was the only one in the class that knew all the music because of her Radio Dad and her Hippie Mom.
How could a Radio guy not love The Beach Boys new tune “That’s Why God Made The Radio”
Laura Neville told me that age is just a number. Hey easy for her to say, she doesn’t have any.
Bob Christy told me the Black Hockey Player who scored the winning goal that took the Boston Bruins out of the Stanley Cup playoffs spoke with a Canadian accent.
Wow I guess Duffys is trying to get rid of a bunch of us and go younger. They switched their music from Classic Rock to something the bartender called Piano Rock what ever the hell that is.
Dave Fulton was kind enough to send me a Movie Poster and a DVD of his Movie/Documentary “Naptown Rock Radio Wars” Outstanding!
I have yet to figure out what clicking the “Like” button on Facebook accomplishes.
A couple of years ago I was riding from Aspen to Denver in Jim Hilliard’s King Rancher along with his Wife Barbara and her friend Suzie. Jim and I were up front feeling the need to do a little Jones so in goes the Possum’s Greatest hits. Jim cranked it way up as we barreled our way through the Rocky Mountains. After nearly an hour of great tunes Suzie spoke up from the back and said … I have no idea who that is but I would definitely recommend he just go ahead and kill himself.
I think women have an easier time living with a Man they don’t love than a Man does with a Woman. But I’m just guessing.
I wonder how many Men would have married the real Woman they ended up with.
The people who get off on trivia the most are the people holding the cards with all the answers on them. Wouldn’t you just once like to see Alex Trebek on the panel and you’re the one holding the cards. Do you think that superior little smile of his would finally be wiped off his face. Sweet!
Damn! I just saw you can lease a brand new Bentley for three grand a month but I’m fifty bucks short. Can anybody help out here.
