Geo’s Media Blog. Part 3 (It Was A Very Good Year)

The Phantoms loved to
party a way too much
We’d lost our focus
and were out of touch.

Had to so something
before it was too late
Maybe a name change
would also change our fate

So far, I’ve had some great years but none of them come close to 1964 when my whole world changed. I married my childhood sweetheart, saw the Beatles, signed a recording contract, began my radio career, and met Jim Hilliard. So Frank nailed it when he sang my song, “It Was A Very Good Year”
However, before my world exploded, I was still living at home, and even though I was making money playing with my band, my father insisted that I also needed to get a real job. As he said to me many times, “Son, we Johns men work for a living; we don’t play guitar.” Unfortunately, for him, it meant that he had to find most of my jobs because I could never manage to find one that I liked. He, of course, didn’t have that problem, he didn’t care if I liked the work or not.

With my father’s continuing support, ūüôā I ended working at a bunch of different jobs which included my becoming the Assistant Manager of a bowling alley. What made this job so strange was that I didn’t know anything about bowling.¬†Being an enterprising kind of guy though, I decided to see how far up the ladder the assistant manager’s title would take me. So it was a no brainer when I spotted a new bowling alley being built, of course, I applied for the GM’s job.
What made this particular bowling alley cool was that it was also going to have a pool room and pool I knew about. Hell, I got my formal education at a pool hall on my way home from school every day.

My interview with the new owners went well, but before they could consider me, I had to be a certified bowling instructor. So it was “Hi Ho, Hi Ho” it’s off to bowling school I go. I crushed the course and got certified, (see below) but seeing as the bowling alley was still under construction, it would be a while before I would know whether they were going to offer me the job or not. I was in no rush because as I said, I wasn’t hurting for money, but the part I loved the most was that my folks were off my back about me finding a job. I’d figured out early that fame usually leads to fortune, so I always made sure that the venue hired a dee-jay from CKY to MC our dances which resulted in our getting an enormous amount of on-air publicity.
The way it worked at the dances was the dee-jays would kick the evening off by throwing out a bunch of records to the crowd, introduce us, and before we finished our first tune, they’d be gone. Then the following Monday I would bring their money to them at the radio station.
63503_10151827117384307_192927957_n-1On this particular life-changing Monday, I was at the CKY studios around noon to give Mark Parr (pictured above) his appearance fee. Embree McDermid, who was at the front desk, told me that Mark was waiting for me in the FM studio where he was filling in for the FM board op who was on his lunch break.
Once we got the business part out of the way, Mark asked if I’d ever run a radio board and when I told him that I hadn’t, he put me in the chair and proceeded to show me. It all seemed simple enough and was going well until he spotted Deno Corrie in another studio and said, “I’ll be right back.”
Can you spell PANIC? Everything was running at once and I had no idea what was on the air. I was frantically waving at Mark but he was too busy yucking it up with Deno to notice me.
To make matters worse, all of a sudden several “suits” walked into the studio. I was told later that one of the suits was the owner who was there proudly showing off his brand new 360,000-watt radio station to all his old cronies. Wouldn’t he have freaked out had he known that the kid piloting his new flame thrower, only had about ten minutes of radio experience?
When they finally left, I took a deep breath and slowly started to sort things out and by the time Mark got back, everything was running smoothly and all he said was, “See, I knew you wouldn’t have any problems kid; you’re a natural.”
Mark pestered everybody until they finally hired me as a part-time board op which didn’t pay much but I was thrilled and of course, had no idea that I had just embarked on what I’d be doing for the rest of my life. My good news though wasn’t good news for my Mom because when she overheard on the phone telling the bowling alley guys, “Thanks but no thanks, I’m a radio guy now” (pictured below) she cried.

GEO’S LIFE-LINES

When and who was it that decided that the rich people on the losing side of a war, never lost anything? Oh, and how come Cuba and Israel didn’t buy into that concept?

How long do you suppose it will be until the overused word, “racist” finally burns out?

When you stumble, just make it part of your act and keep on dancin’.

Is it just me or do the folks who are in charge of how much everybody makes, tend to overpay themselves?

What successful company bought out by another company ever become better? Sure hasn’t happened in radio.

Women used to know their place, but I actually had to tell my daughters that they needed to get up to the front of the line.

Does anybody know in days hours or minutes how long coming soon is?

For the last decade or so, we’ve been fighting the war in the desert door to door, yet the military still wants more money from congress to build faster airplanes and bigger warships. What are they for?

COMMENTS

Bob Christy: On December 30th, 1994, I was driving to a meeting with our station’s attorneys in Wellesley, MA. I was on the Mass Pike and had dialed around the radio checking things out, KISS, EEI, WBZ regular programming on the air. I turned on WBUR, Boston University’s NPR station and they are doing wall to wall coverage of a shooting at an abortion clinic in Brookline. I listened for a few minutes and turned back to WBZ, nothing. I called Len Malo at our station and told him what was going on, he checked it out and broke in on the air with a bulletin. I went back to WBZ, still nothing…I knew at that moment the clock was ticking on the number one radio news outlet in Boston. It took WBZ a half hour to catch up. The funny thing or maybe not so funny is at the time WBZ was in the same building as WBZ TV who was all over the story. WBUR is the top radio news station in Boston today. They are on top of breaking news and do brilliant deep-dive coverage of stories as well. The long-form stories they did on the Whitey Bulger trial were excellent Today in LA If KPCC in Pasadena had a better signal, they’d be on top on radio news in LA in short order. The thing that all these NPR news operations have in common is a total commitment to news, and they get great demographics by doing it. Fred Heckman once told me, “if there is a column of smoke in the sky and you can’t tell them why it’s there, you’re finished.” it’s still true today and always will be. (Write The Wrongs)

Doug Chapelle: George, Funny thing between Canada and the USA many Canadians think it is wrong for Trump to want to have the Southern border secure from Latinos crossing illegally into the USA BUT they are also pissed that Trudeau is allowing/encouraging illegal immigrants flowing across the border at Champlain NY into Quebec “OTTAWA ‚Äď Canadian officials in Nigeria are working with the U.S. on developing tools to flag Nigerians applying for U.S. visas who may be at ‚Äúhigh risk‚ÄĚ of crossing illegally into Canada across the U.S. border.
So far this year, the majority of illegal migrants arriving in Canada are Nigerians who have recently been issued U.S. travel visas.”
Canada has become the Nation of double standards. (Classy)

Jim Harper: Regarding your idea of Radio doing “product placements” instead of just spots…we did that at Magic in Detroit and with great success. It’s tricky…it makes the lawyers very nervous (we did disclaimers at the end of every hour to indicate we’d been paid for mentions), but it CAN be done! The salespeople created a whole new item on the rate card for it, and it appeared on the log as a unit (we called them Poz-Mens for positive mentions) and the morning show figured out a way to bring a product or service up in natural conversation. Just like on TV shows or movies, but it’s more challenging since it can’t have been seen sitting on a desk or in someone’s hand. Be glad to explain it in detail if anyone’s interested. Clients loved it, and it was added revenue. It did NOT impact the spot load per hour. So once again George, you’re onto another great idea. Close-minded/nothing should impact the product-people/ won’t get it. But it’s as old as showbiz itself. And it makes the talent very sharp. (Radio Royalty)

Earl Mann: Excellent article, George. It is appalling to see the media’s continual attempts to castrate and crucify this man! Trump has actually done an amazing job, especially considering the slings and arrows the Left has thrown at him. The economy is booming! More people have more money in their 401K’s than they ever have before! The stock market is higher than it has ever been thanks to Trump’s deregulation and his cutting of corporate taxes! “Yuge” amounts of money are now flowing back into the U.S from overseas; creating jobs and improving infrastructure! Illegal immigrants are no longer flooding into the U.S because they know Trump means business! And, finally, instead of ‘leading from behind’ as Obama did, Trump is telling the world two things: “America first” and “Don’t fuck with us”! Btw, getting China to begin to pressure North Korea seriously is the result of Trump’s leadership no less. Gone are the “Kumbaya” days of a feckless and impotent globalist – Obama! (Unthinkable Trump)

Geo’s Media Blog. Part 2 (The Phantoms)

Talked my friend Rolly
into playing bass
Added Pete Fade and Gordy
then picked up the pace

Long before I ever even thought about getting into radio, I was a musician. First I played the accordion, then the trumpet, but when I saw Elvis on TV, I just had to become a guitar man. Shortly after buying my first guitar, I was invited to join a singing group called “Shayne and the Devines.” It was kinda fun starting my musical career as one of the Devines but being more of a band guy than a vocalist, I talked Shayne into recruiting some of my talented musician friends.
On tenor sax, we got the guy who started me playing music, Pete Proskurnik, who brought along his buddy Gordy Duke who was a drummer. I talked my friend Rolly Blaquiere, (Termite) originally a piano man, into playing bass and his brother Lawrence (Fade) on the piano.

Now that we were a band and not a vocal group, the name Devines sounded wimpy so we changed it to Shayne and the Rebel Raiders. Then when we realized that the Rebel Raiders sounded much too southern for a Canadian band, we became the Phantoms.
My Mom made us some very cool blue satin tux jackets, (see above) so not only were we sounding good, we were lookin’ good too. However, when Shayne heard that it wasn’t Shayne and the Phantoms, he walked and we replaced him with an Elvis like singer named Donny Burns (pictured above) and also added another sax player named Jimmy Harrison.

We were starting to sound pretty good and I thought that the only thing that would make us sound better, would be some more rehearsals maybe. Then I spotted Perry Waksvik at a variety show, and if memory serves me correctly, I believe that he tried to recruit Rolly for his band, so I recruited him for ours.
Perry not only had great guitar chops, but he also sang all those cool Chuck Berry songs which would give us some variety. I moved over to rhythm and within weeks, we became one of Winnipeg’s most popular bands, and I stumbled across¬†a philosophy that I would use for the rest of my life. “He who is smart enough to hire people better than themselves is the smartest person in the room.”

The Phantoms were not only were good, we became legendary, but unfortunately, our legendary status may have come more from our partying than our musical ability.
Part of our problem was that we could party anywhere because we had a party trailer. (see above) The trailer was intended for our gear, but because we stored it at Rolly’s house, he decided to turn it into a small nightclub. It had wall to wall carpeting, curtains, colored mood lights, giant pillows, and of course a bar. If that trailer could talk, what tales it could tell.

One of the reasons bands have a difficult time staying intact is because they usually only have the music in common but once the music talk well runs dry, the drama begins. When we recruited Perry it changed us musically which was a good thing, and for that I thank him, but the chemistry was bad, so when his whining became intolerable, we moved on.
While looking for another guitar player, Randy Bachman graciously filled in, and when we finally found Terry Kenny, Randy started his own band called The Guess Who.
 
Terry turned out to be a great guitar player but when he first joined the band, he appeared to be a lot more reserved than the rest of us. (looks can be deceiving) His first gig with was when we opened for Bill Black’s Combo, and fearing that he may freeze up, I told Rolly to run him through our setlist a few more times in the trailer.
However, like a fool, I also told Rolly to give him a couple of drinks to loosen him up a little. Y’all see this coming don’t ya?¬†When they arrived at the venue, Terry looked stiffer than ever, and Rolly was shitfaced! ūüôā

Is it racist to have good thoughts about somebody just because of their race?

With greatness comes great responsibility.

The only people who tell the truth all the time are kids and drunks.

How much money can there be in Tobasco Sauce when you only use it one drop at a time?

The greatest honor a man can bestow upon a woman is to ask her to marry him. Sometimes though, the greatest gift a woman can give a man in return is to say no.

The next thing you should do is that which you’re afraid to do.

Want the boss to notice you?Take the blame for something, you’ll be the only one in that line.

Who gave the prosecutors the right to plea bargain? I don’t remember voting for it.

I wonder if this is the America our forefathers dreamed about?

I think all government employees should get the minimum wage and have to work for tips.

A lot of great talent, unfortunately, comes from and is fueled by the dark side, whereas you are born gifted. You can either sing or draw or you can’t.

All races have good guys and bad guys. I figure it’s time to rag on a few of the other races, don’t they deserve equal time?

COMMENTS

Ken LeMann:¬†As good as it feels to heap importance upon ourselves, let’s be honest. Radio, may in fact be part of show business but it’s somewhere on the very outskirts – maybe just beyond community theater! Seems like a lot of it is getting farther away every year. (Yeah But)

Bruce Devine:¬†Another great thing about Earl & other announcers at CFTR, was that he was originally a singer, so his sense of music & his pacing was so much better than someone just using a countdown clock. Don Parrish was also a classically trained singer & Fred Davis a horn player, No need to explain to them what you wanted them to hit…they could feel it. I’m still op-ing ¬†NHL radio feeds out of Montreal…Earl is reading liners on practically every back feed! (Earl Mann)

Jerry Keifer:¬†The first serious fault I see with JVC’s entry into the West Palm market is News radio 900. The “Belle Glade” station has always had signal problems in West Palm dating back to the 60’s and the various formats they tried, R & B, country, religion and gospel music. Fair to good in a car but no building penetration.¬† The guys are doing a great job with the content but you’ve got to be able to hear it. (Consolidation Is A Bust)

Jim Hilliard jr:¬†Everyone in the world listened to Pierre Trudeau except his wife and the Stones! (A Woman’s Wants)

Jim Harper:¬†As I recall George, it was YOUR idea to make me the PD then selling it to management by saying “He’ll be too busy to mess up the sound of the station.” You were right on all accounts: It is much easier to make a successful morning show if you’re the PD, and you ARE too busy to wreck anything on the station. Forever grateful. (What The Hell Happened?)

John Ryman:¬†George, hadn’t talked to you for a while, even more, good stuff here…..you ARE one of my radio heroes. Health slowly returning here…..gets better every day and outlook is great! Blessings. (Good People Are Irrelevant)

Joasia Holotka:¬†More crazy stories by the minute George!!!¬† From what I understand, it’s quite a compliment to be mentioned in a similar way to Jo Myers. Thank you! (You May Be Lunch)

Greg McClure:¬†George, I really love reading your past life review and current observations. Right on the money, so to speak. My dad liked to laugh and liked to love his 13 children. More than once he’d say: “the feet pay for the head’s mistakes.” Took me some time to figure that out! –another fan of the vast audio radiance, Greg. (I’m The F**king Boss, That’s Why)

Joe Tobin: Your comment that any forward motion is good motion was not lost on me. In fact many of the comments made by you, and by Jim H, still ring true. You were overwhelmingly positive and always urged me to keep trying; obviously, you were speaking the truth. (Comments)

Scott Courant:¬†Geo, Salespeople were never high on your list, but we did a few unique things together. (Palm-Aire) As Reineri once said, “Once and a while you’ve got to give one back.” Talk soon! (Thank You)
Geo:¬†Love hanging with you guys Scott, just don’t like working with you.

Gordon Zlot: George,
We’re honored to be included in this list.¬† Oh BTW…I just figured out what KY was CKY.¬† I thought you were referring to …..you know KY Jelly, but what’s that got to do to oidar? That’s radio backward.¬† I’m off to have a martini now and you know where that might take us!
Geo: Martini-ville is always a good place to head for Gordon, lots of Muses hang out there. (Thank You)

If plastic water bottles are okay, but plastic bags are banned;
“You might live in a nation (state) that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally;
¬†“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by¬†idiots.”

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion’:
“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by¬†idiots”.

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government.
¬†“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by¬†idiots.”

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt;
¬†“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by¬†idiots”.

If in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat;
¬†“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by¬†idiots”.

If an 80-year-old woman who is confined to a wheelchair or a three-year-old girl can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched
“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots”.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more;
“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots”.

If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is “cute” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable.
¬†“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots”.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones.
“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by¬†idiots”.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, timeshares, a wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage;
“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots”.

If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself makes you “more¬†safe” according to the government;
“You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.”

Think before you vote in all upcoming elections. Most of the idiots running this country say one thing and do the opposite, knowing that the people who voted them in do not pay attention.

Let’s see if I got this right!

If you cross the Iranian border illegally you get detained

Geo’s Media Blog (Both Sides Now) New For 2/24/20

As you probably know, I hang out at a sports bar here in West Palm Beach called Duffy’s. Not only are the drinks two for one but the food is decent, and they have sixty flat screens to watch sports on.
And oh yeah, the bartenders all know my name which usually results in a nice pour.

However, the old man who created the franchise died, and now I hear that the kids have turned it over to some bean counter. Hey, when’s the last time that you ever heard that an accountant made things better?
I hear that his first move was to wipe out their corporate headquarters and now he’s coming after us. So far he’s cut out the half-price meals that they offered we black card club members (upper echelon members) from 2 pm-4 pm for we black cardholders, and now I hear he wants to appeal to a younger crowd. Good luck! They used to open a new Duffy’s every few months somewhere in Florida, but I’m thinking the new thing will closures.

Anyway, I’m thinking that maybe my buddy, Big Bob and I should spend some time at a bar just down the street called Twin Peaks so we can make room for the young folks the financial guy is dreaming about for Duffy’s
The servers are nothing but beautiful young ladies who are friendly and treat you so nice, you think they’re hitting on you. (see photos above)

I have to be careful though because the last time I was there, Bob and I talked a couple of the pretty things from behind the bar into posing with us.
I, of course, hoping to make a few of my buddies envious, I instantly posted them to Facebook but the only response I got was, “Daddy unless you want me hanging out with these kinds of girls, you better stop posting pictures like this.” The photos disappeared instantly!

True happiness is most often attained while working on a cause that you truly believe in.

When you’re rich, it doesn’t matter who’s in power because you can buy your way in or out of almost anything.

Good things usually happen to people who try to make things happen.

I believe that the people who are the best in the world at anything should be overly compensated, no matter the circumstances.

COMMENTS
Bruce Walker: Hi George, Interesting conversation with Randy about Fred Turner. I bet Randy was listening to a band I was playing with at that time called Purple Haze. Fred told me that Randy wanted him to go out West and join his group.¬† I said pack your bags and get going.¬† It wasn’t long after that the band broke up and Fred went to join Randy.¬† Fred was not sure about leaving Winnipeg since he had just gotten married.¬† We met a few days later, and he was still in town.¬† I again told him to get out West, and he finally did it.¬† I really don’t think that my prodding had a huge part in his decision, but I’m glad he did it. He’s a great guy. (The “I” Word Didn’t Work For Jesus Either)

Gary Russell: The older you get, the smarter you become. It’s starting to get scary, Geo. Great stuff! (The “I” Word Didn’t Work For Jesus Either)

Geo: Thank You, Gar, unfortunately, what I know comes mostly from painful experiences, and I’ve still got all the scars to prove it. Miss you, Man!

Moto: I dunno – it seems to me that playing everybody’s favorite song is only possible in the Bizarro World.¬† However, playing those songs that everyone will tolerate is sadly the key to radio. Hence, Pandora rules. (Radio Radio Radio)

Geo: Exactly Moto, Better you should play what they like rather than what they love. As you know, hate is but a heartbeat away.

Jim Davis: Further addendum to your “The Three Words That Women Like to Hear”:
-“You’re right.”
-“I’m wrong.”
-“And, I’m sorry” (Angel Baby, My Angel Baby)

Scott Shannon: I’ve been reading your babbling diatribes for some time now, and without a doubt, this one is your very best. It brought tears to my eyes. (Seventeen, Seventeen, Prettiest Girl I’ve Ever Seen)

Geo: Wow! Making the great Scott Shannon weep is now the highlight of my career. ūüôā

Tim Moore: At 29, arriving in Dallas to assume my student role as VP Sales for the TM Companies,
I was enveloped by “KVIL / Ron Chapman” buzz in the halls on Regal Row, I asked myself, “geez…how great could this be? I’ve grown up on CKLW, WLS, and WRIF!”
I listened for a week and thought to myself, “nice show but not a big deal.” Then I listened for two months, stood back, and said, “This is the most brilliantly conceived show on the most brilliantly conceived radio station in America.” I understated it. (Hall Of Fame Baby)

John Ryman: Made my day hearing that Ron was going into the National Radio Hall Of Fame and hearing that you were going to do the introduction even delighted me more.¬† I’ve known Ron for a long time….since he became a “forced” mentor to me when Bob Hanna bought the station where I was PD ¬†in the early 70s, I later moved to Dallas and made the transition into sales/mgt.¬† You only know me by name but first met you in the hallway outside of the KVIL entrance in the Park Cities Bank building (I was then in the office next door). Ron and I still touch base occasionally, but I’ve followed both of your accomplishments throughout the years, and never cease to be amazed. I still try to contribute to the industry, but no one seems to listen much anymore.¬† It’s heartbreaking to witness the evolution…or should we say the dissolution? (Hall Of Fame Baby)

Bill Gilliand: Geez Georgie Boy, Cami’s a chip off the old block! There must be a gene for writing. (To Tat Or Not To Tat)

Geo: She kills me, Billy G.

Lorenda Rae: Mr. Businessman needs to meet Sheena Easton!! (Inconsistencies Are Good)

Geo: Lorenda, even the most powerful Businessman, is not strong enough to resist a beautiful Woman. In fact, she’s much more powerful than him, she can crumble his career in a heartbeat. The only known antidote, unfortunately, is another beautiful Woman but the process just begins again. However, Lorenda, you wouldn’t know anything about this, would ya? (-:
