Sonntag 11 April 21 0300 or Coast to Coast AM.
ok, bumper music: Wilson Pickett's "Hey Jude". Beatles
release; 26 Aug 68 and THAT month I started a Rochester Ny Democrat
and Chronicle paper route, determined to spend my earnings
on ALL Apple records (by 1976 I was on Gulcher records!). Wilson
Pickett recorded HIS Hey Jude album November
1968 and I STILL remember hearing it over to my "Ant' (Ma's
sister) Fannie's place and my cuzzin saying "isn't it too
soon to bring this song back?" answer: "NO!" I
looked at Wicked Pickett's discography and he even gave "Sugar
Sugar" soul! Also of doubt (on wikipedia) is Duane Allman
playing lead on "Hey Jude", (it's true!! Read
here-ed)so me listening to Duane in '68; guitar two years
later...all on 1851 Blodgett property! If you read the beatles
wiki Sir Paul wouldn't let George solo on "Hey Jude'...ok,
so this to me is THE version! What I just learned on wiki, boringly
waiting for a 91 bus coz I AINT retired, is on same album, the
follow up to "Hey Jude" was Wicked Pickett singing "Born
to Be Wild"! And to quote Rochester Ny native Gene Cornish,
rascals guitar on Little Steven radio the once: "Hey I was
from white bread Rochester NY; I didn't know nothin' about Wilson
Pickett!" Me too! Not til "Hey Jude"! Rock done
with soul and an Allman solo....hmmm....sounds like my Lowell

"Monntag 12 Apr 21 0300 Coast to coast AM
(c'mon sleepin', lissenin' to records, watchin' tv, brunch at Bronwyn...I'm
old AND predictable!). Aerosmith's "Sweet Emotion", mono
radio. Toys in the Attic was last Aeroshit album that I
liked and I did a borin'-ass interview with their borin' ass bassist
in indy for Gulcher; why I'm EVEN mentionin'
this song is he ADMITTED they stole it from Stones "we love
you" (the "sweet emotion' part). I actually DO like the
underated b-side "uncle salty" more; Aeroshit did gud
45s! couple hours or so later Coast bumper music was Nirvana "man
who sold the world' ("Space oddity' b-side in '73!). Gotta
admit Kurt Cobain nails that lil intro riff ("he played it
left hand but took it too far"! I is cuzzins to him through
our mutual Vigne line (one of four Walloon families whom sailed
to New Netherlands 1623 AND "date man" (Blowfish quote
in BGN '78) WERE there on Manhattan for that $24 swindle of ye Indians
("always....remember the swindle"). I know this is getting
kinda classic rock-y BUT internet research that I dun DOES site
Lydia Koch ALSO lissenin' to man who sold the world in
Rochester! She shoulda pen palled me from Circus magazine
fiddy years ago; otherwise, if I hadn't ate dinner: "I need

"Monntag 12 April 21. YES! I am a FAN(attic) of "TV Eye'
SCANDAL series; they keep mentioning
the NSA, Mr President has marine guards (Hello BIZARRO World!) AND
they have THE BEST r and b music, especially playing 1973 vinyl
albums. So Mr President is carrying on more love affairs than Bill
Clinton BUT the music is...Otis Redding/Carla Thomas "Tramp'!
(Gizmos toured the Stax museum when we played Gonerfest in Memphis!).
Carla: "you know what?/ you wear overalls/ and big ole brogan
shoes/ and you need a haircut tramp!" "Hey Baby they're
playing MY song"! Another Stax Volt classic from Joe Tex "But
I know some woman who will take you...Mr Raggedy Clothes and All!"
my real Wife! "whooped with an ugly stick!"".

Joe Quinn, bass of Clan Linehan-ago-go; he posted on my wall dj

Boston musician" ...and before that "sidewalk
Surfin'" by Jan and dean".....

Freitag 16 April 2021. 0400. Sometyme in the night after giving
the ok sign to the Tinkerbelle lights that are on my ceiling, I
was listening to Coast to Coast Am with GEORGE
NOORY and heard Sugarloaf's "Green Eyed Lady"
a GREAT August 1970 45, along with "Mississippi Queen"
and "All Right Now" which equals my first guitar that
Christmas. Formerly (Wikipedia) CHOCOLATE HAIR ("dude....let's
go see Chocolate hair man....with STRAWBERRY Alarm Clock and VANILLA
Fudge and dig the colours on the ice cream mannnnn"...."Green
Eyed Lady" has a LOOONNGG jam version but they edited that
Mad Painting for the Am version. My stepbrother had the album. Edgar
Cayce and the pyramids was the topic on the program but
dig that bumper music! BUT my 0500 morning got BETTER! No Law
and Order so I surfed (related four tymes to the Beach Boys!)
to channel 335 and on Discovery: Expedition X! go to Wikipedia
for The Bell Witch (and
BellWitch.org-ed); abandoned Tennesee 1820 plantation,
Pair o' normal or abnormal, Ghostbusters in a corn field and I HEARD
the ghost say "yes yes"! (it's
on youtube!) Investigators Communicate with the legendary Bell
Witch/ expedition X. AND in case you're "Pumpin'", investigator
Jessica Chobot (from Buffalo NY!) named "14th hottest woman
of business 2009 by Business Pundit". "Supplementing her
love of video games is an obsession with Japanese culture, especially
anime and manga". sadly, married twice already and a mom".....

Gibbons of ZZBeard on as guest! I DID catch the "Hendrix
and big-ass stereo backstage" story when Moving Sidewalks
and Experience played Texas. "He had everything man"
says Mr. Z.Z> Top (no kin to ZZ Hill!). Bumper music: "waitin'
for the bus" off tres Gizmos and I even stole the chorus

released the month before I was borned in a trailer in northern
Virginny with no TV (march 1956) the acts are my parents music via
WJIB 740 Am, Bob Bittner! Just the Four Aces singing the intro alone
is worth watching but check Wikipedia
and youtube for listings of whom
sang what and discogs tells you of the VINYL soundtrack! That
said, supreme moment was Mitsuke Sawamura, teen
sensation from Japan! (she was also in teahouse of the August Moon
AND her discogs discography has albums Made in japan that I WANT!
