First Interview Ever





was with this guy...

Ronnie
Van Zandt






(picture taken by me @1973)
I helped put together our radio station in high school and one of my duties was to write to all of the record companies and ask them for service. One who did give us service was MCA. In 1973, these long haired southern guys released their first album and we got a copy. If I am not mistaken, we also got copies of "The Groundhogs","Mose Jones" and "Wishbone Ash", all were on MCA. In September of 1973, Lynyrd Skynyrd opened for ZZ Top in Davenport and the MCA record guy at the time got me backstage with Ronnie. I asked him why he was barefoot onstage and he said it was because he wanted to feel the stage burn. I remember thinking how young he was, not much older than me. I wish I still had that interview today. The sad thing is, I really don't remember when I lost it. After opening for ZZ Top, the Who asked them to open on their American tour, not bad.From that day forward, I was a fan and I genuinely hurt the day the plane went down. One of those days that I will always remember where I was when I heard the news. Yes, I know they were rednecks, but damn, they could really play. With all of that in mind, I present my top five Skynyrd songs:
"I Never Dreamed"
"Seasons"
"I Know A Little"
"I Need You"
"That Smell"
I thought "Street Survivors" was their masterpiece and then they were done.

My Last Weigh In of 2005...

was at the Y after playing basketball today...198 pounds. Good Lord, at the beginning of this year I weighed 183. So, my first New Years resolution is to lose 25 next year. Let's see how I do, it's only a half a pound a week. No sweat, right? Right.

Brush With Greatness Part Deux


Yes, that would be Gene Simmons and myself at the Hooters on Craig Road in St. Louis. That was when I did mornings with Smash at KSHE and our producer on the show used to be their manager or something like that. This was 1992 I believe. We used to do morning shows on the road. He seemed like a good guy, liked to laugh a lot. Well...duh, who wouldn't in his shoes?

I WISH I WAS THERE!!!

I have lived in Denver when it has snowed like this. Give me a house about 9,000 feet up somewhere around Estes or Breckinridge, some tunes, wine, some Rossingnol 140s and watch me be thrilled.
It really doesn't get any better than that.

A week of nothing..a nothing week.

But, it's alright. I wanted to do nothing so the time off would last longer. It's the way I think. I have played basketball three times (and am I really sore)and watched the local holiday high school tournaments. I love going to them and like to do that each year between Christmas and New Year.
On Tuesday I saw two games, and I did last night too. I am always comforted to know that just about anyone under the sun comes to see these games. Last night, I saw white guys hugging black guys, black guys hugging white guys, tall guys, short women, young girls, old guys and midgets. I am rooting for two teams, big bad Webster Groves (the rival from the suburb next door)and Kirkwood (our boys). Webster is the favorite and the final four has Kirkwood in it. The farm boys from Troy Mo are there along with a Hazelwood school. Other than that,I went to the bank, out to eat and been a slug sleeping in. It's good for the soul to sometimes do nothing except be with the family.

"You are never too old to become younger"-Mae West

February 9th 1964


All my father could do was shake his head.

My Yoko shots..almost

Yoko came to St. Louis in August of 1986 to promote a showing of John's art work at the Joann Perse Gallery in Chesterfield. One of the first things I did when I got to KSHE was to establish myself as "The Beatles" guy. Rick Balis allowed me to do a show called "The Afternoon Beatles". Each day at 4pm, we would play a song or two with some actualities or facts thrown in. Apparently, Joann liked the show and when the opportunity arose to promote,she chose my show.
Yoko and me at the premiere
Unfortunately, it was one of the worst interviews I have ever done. I was incredibly nervous and it showed. What a time to get a case of the yips. I interviewed her at the Doubletree Hotel in Chesterfield and this is a shot from that day:


I found her to be very cool, calm and yes somewhat attractive. I have a special autographed souvenir provided by the guy who took the photo of Yoko, Mark Gilliland.
I have a picture of Yoko and me sitting on the couch together but I can't...find...it. I will post when I do.

Damn Kids...

A couple of postings ago, I was really frustrated about getting my internet connection to work. I brought back this perfectly good computer from KC and it has sat idle since I got back more than a year and a half ago. Had it ready to rock and could not for the life of me figure how to keep an internet connection. It would connect and then poof, gone. My son got back from Notre Dame last week and I asked him to look at it. Two nights ago, he had time, so I said.."here's the instructions and here's the software, and good luck"! Eight minutes...eight friggin minutes was all he needed. How embarrassing! All he did was type in the code to the place where you are supposed to type in the code. Then, later in the evening, for doing his sonly duty, he wanted to be compensated. Another $20 gone with the wind. $20 for eight minutes. I used to make that kind of dough. Double Arrrggghhh! Now, I think my printer's shot because it doesn't work either but then you have clogged jets and stuff. I wonder how long it will take him to figure it out. the over under is 6 minutes.

THE best Calvin and Hobbes Christmas Cartoons

I love Calvin and Hobbes and these are the best cartoons dealing with winter ever. Enjoy!

My favorite Non Traditional Christmas Songs

I love the classics.."God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen","O Come All Ye Faithful" and such but here are my top five non traditional songs
"Easier Said Than Done"-Jon Anderson
"Happy Xmas"-John and Yoko
"2000 Miles"-The Pretenders
"Please Come Home For Christmas"-The Eagles
"I Believe In Father Christmas"-Greg Lake

Guaranteed to put all in a good mood.

So, this is Christmas

Maybe one of the better Christmases in the family. I love my job and am blessed to have it. I still have this radio paranoia where I am waiting for the other show to drop, maybe I'll get over it, maybe not. I think that drives me to succeed. I have nice co-workers and really enjoy being there. My family is healthy and happy, although I wish ALL of us could be together, but I think Jess is spending time with someone she enjoys. I am healthy (thank God) and I am blessed for that. I have a nice house where I am comfortable and a part time gig that is really sweet. This is all I need, the rest is just icing on the cake. It's a sweet cake this year, definately better than last year and all in all, one of the better ones. Would I be too greedy to ask for seconds?

Good Lord, what a place at Learfield around the holidays. Cookies here, fudge there, caramel, bit-o-honeys, cake,...etc. I love these guys but man, I'm afraid that...I'll end up like this...
"But sir....it is wafer-thin."

The Top Ten Science Stories of 2005

In school, I loved science, weather, the solar system, etc. I followed the Gemini and Apollo programs with great interest. Too bad I snoozed through high school or else I could have been an astronaut or an agronomist or a zoologist or a botonist or a scientist or whatever.
Here are the top ten Science Stories of 2005 according to Live Science. Enjoy, all you frustrated chemists

Ted Habeck

As I was getting ready to go on the air at the Arch earlier today, I had a conversation with Ted Habeck, the guy on the air preceding me. For those who didn't grow up in St. Louis, Ted worked at KSHE95 from 1973-1979. I realized how many people Ted turned me on to. Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Palmer, and Boz Scaggs everyone knows; but also Wishbone Ash, Be Bop Deluxe, Climax Blues Band, Rory Gallagher...and that's just the tip of the iceberg. When I lived in Quad Cities, I had relatives that lived in St. Charles and two or three times a year, we would ride or drive back and forth. More than once, I would bring down my Wollensak 8 track recorder and just run tape after tape of KSHE. It's funny, at this ripe age, I don't have many people left in the business that I really look up to. Ted is one and a real good guy too. Thanks, Ted.

Huge Football Game

I got home from my weeklong trek through Wisconsin (where it snowed every day)just in time to order some Chinese food, sit in front of the tube, turn on ESPN2 and watch my daughter's school, The University of Northern Iowa Panthers take on the fighting hillbillies from Appalachian State (they might be the grizzlies or whatever) in the 1-AA college CHAMPIONSHIP!
As I mentioned in a previous post, do not allow me to root for your team. UNI lost on a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown in the fourth quarter 21-16.
Not only do my teams lose (see last week's game with the Chiefs) but they lose in a heartwrenching, dramatic way.

Another Musical Mulligan

This guy is a perfect remedy for a winters night in front of the fireplace. I am a huge fan of Gordon Lightfoot, although my hard rock buddies always laughed at me for it. Nevermind. My five favorite Gordon Lightfoot songs would be:
1. Beautiful
2. If You Could Read My Mind
3. Song For A Winter's Night
4. Carefree Highway
5. Rainy Day People

Honorable Mention would be for "The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald" just for having the balls to write a song about a shipwreck in Lake Superior that killed a number of people.

RICHARD PRYOR 1940-2005

When I was in high school, this guy(and George Carlin) was the funniest muhfugga on the planet. Whenever he had a new album out, I would take my hard earned money, roll a fattie, and just laugh my ass off. He made you laugh, think and take an honest look at yourself. His movies with Gene Wilder were awesome and I feel a bit sad today. Once again, a very small piece of who I came to be has passed. I hope no one is offended when I say "that nigger was crazy." Thanks Richard, you truly were the pride of Peoria.

I Hate Duke



I love college basketball, although I don't have a team to really root for. Mizzou is horrible. And I CANNOT stand Duke. I hate their team, I hate their coach, I hate the fact that they get ALL of the calls. Go Gonzaga!!!

Before Live Aid..before any rock benefit show...

There was "the Concert For Bangladesh". It is now on DVD. Of all the people who have passed in the last ten years (other than family and friends), I miss George. He was my favorite Beatle, bar none. Cool, calm and spiritual. And being the lead guitar player for the Beatles is a good thing to have on the resume. And, while we are at it, "The Concert for George" is amazing. Hearing Clapton doing "Beware of Darkness" and Eric and Paul doing "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is chilling.
Great Christmas gifts?

I'm reminded of Led Zeppelin...

...and their song "Sick Again". It seems like every year right before Christmas(whether I am in shape or not), I get a case of the creeping cruds. It's NOT a good thing to get it this year(my body is not ready yet). So, I am lining up the defenses and trying to hold this one at bay. I have to go on the road next week, so this could be a great trip or the one from hell.

How fast time really does fly


Can it really be twenty five years? Where were you when you heard the news? I had just gotten off the air doing my 6-10pm shift on KY102 in Kansas City. My girlfriend at the time had cooked me dinner and I had just put my dog (Feedback) out to do his thing. When I returned to the house, Bree was crying hysterically and I couldn't figure out why. Just at that time Howard Cosell on Monday Night Football said "John Lennon...assassinated...DOA" What? No way. It was true. I quickly turned on the radio and heard my good friend(and fellow Beatle fan) Jon Hart play "I'm So Tired". I knew then the station was in great hands. We played Beatle music on KY for what seemed like years but was only a week.
I preached at a service for John at the All Souls Unitarian Church two days later. It was packed and I had NO notes. I winged it and everyone thought it was great. Now, comes today and I heard someone on the radio say that they didn't understand the big deal about John. I won't try to explain either. He had the guts to take a stand that might not have been popular, but was never untrue to his convictions
"All we are saying..is give peace a chance".
"So, this is Christmas, and what have you done?"
"Life is what happens to you when your busy making other plans."
God bless and God speed.

Don't Get Me Started...


I have never been as frustrated at technology than I am now. It can make you feel so humble and pissed off. I finally decided to unpack my Dell that I had in KC and get it hooked up. I hooked it up, installed a wireless card, got the scanner working and all was good. I had to restart my computer, and for some reason I lost my Internet connection. I uninstalled and installed, all to no avail. It would capture the signal and then poof..gone. Now, the f&^#ing thing won't even recognize the software. I tried to hook up my printer. All the connection are there, it recognizes the printer, but IT.....WON'T.....PRINT!!! "Dude, you got a Dell!" I've got hell is what I have.

Disappointed...


I was watching "Meet The Press" this morning because John McCain was on. In a commercial, I heard "Get Together" by the Youngbloods. Definately one of my top 100 songs of all time. I could not believe it when I found out it was for the Natural Gas Industry. I know The Doors were offered 15 million dollars for "Break On Through", but I NEVER thought the man who wrote "Get Together" amd "Ridgetop" would do this. Pete Townshend, I understand, but I am now certain that the Revolution is over and THEY won.
Say it ain't so, Jesse.

This sidenote and update:
Randy:
You may be able to rest a little easier, knowing that Jesse Colin Young didn't write "Get Together." Dino Valenti of Quicksilver Messenger Service (a/k/a Chet Powers) wrote the song, and it was probably licensed by his estate...He died here in Santa Rosa in 1994.

Happy Holidays!

Mike Watermann

Mike is one of THE best guys I have ever worked for. Thanks, bro, I DO feel better.

The Top 100




A friend of mine made me a bet. He said I could NOT, in any way shape or form come up with my top 100 songs of all time. He was right. How hard is this? One thing I know "Layla" is IT. Everything else is after that. "In My Life","Into The Mystic", etc. I went through my Itunes yesterday and tried to do it. After "The Beatles", I had 28. Not good.

No blog, no worry.

Sorry about not blogging all who care. Me. A number of things been going on.Anyway, got to see one of the coolest things ever on the Friday after Thansksgiving. The whole family minus one (or two) saw the national touring company of "Wicked". Unbelievably awesome, words cannot describe. The Fox Theatre is beautiful and all but these people can SING.
I laughed, I cried. Really openly wept. Isn't it absolutely friggin incredible what music can do?

Turkey Day Game 11/24/04

I live in Kirkwood, Missouri (most of the time), a fine, "bedroom" community right outside St. Louis. An "inside the beltway" suburb. I love it here, we have great churches, and a great community. I have been involved with the high school athletics program more this year, because my daughter is on the "pom" squad. One of the big games every year for the last 90 years, is the annual Turkey Day game against the despised Webster Groves Statesmen. They are the city right next door.
Here is what they play for...The famous Frisco Bell.

I used to live in Webster, too. Anyway, being a part of the Kirkwood High family, I volunteered for duty very early in the day yesterday. I got to the stadium at 10:30 am and spent the next 3 1/2 hours wrapping hotdogs, brats and turkey legs, before I got a chance to enjoy the game. Webster has lost the last three times and Kirkwood had a lead going into the last quarter. With less than three minutes left, Webster scored a touchdown and a two point conversion to win the game 20-19. My daughter, later in the day was a bit pissy, saying she was having a bad day. As a father, I only wish that a bad day to her in the future is no more pressing than having her team lose a big game.
Turkey Day game, 1946.

Brush With Greatness

It's a Tuesday night and the Hawkeyes are not on TV until 9:20. They play big bad Texas tonight. They beat Kentucky last night in a real good game. I love college basketball, it may be my favorite sport to watch, live or on TV. I have caught myself watching Western Kentucky play Butler. I am not a moocher or anything but, if I could swing a trip through Carver Hawkeye Arena this winter, that would be great. I am putting together Randy's top 100 songs of all time for the one person who cares, me. Anyway, had to bring work home the last two nights, but tonight, I am just goofing with the scanner.


"Don't Let Your Meat Loaf"








Left to right top "The Byrd" (infamous short term KSHE morning man); The Man, The Myth, The Legend; Steve "Hit Man" Haas (KSHE part timer and all around good guy); Al Hofer(another good guy) and....I don't know, record guy or somethin' Taken in 1994.
I heard Meatloaf on "Rockline" one night get his ass torn up by a caller..."you big, bag of crap...overblown garbage..etc" and Meat sat there for a second and said "well, I'm proud that I at least affected your life." Nice. Seemed like a good guy.

So, sue me


I mean really, in the 70s, I wanted to look just like that.
I received some grief fromn a (supposed) friend of mine when I said I'd like to go see Neil Diamond at the Savvis Center in December. Now, granted, the last time I saw him, I was hit in the head with a cane(?)and the woman he kissed (he does that in his show) was 78 years old. But, still he was a great songwriter (until that piece of snot Heartlight). So with that in mind, here are my top five Neil songs.

1. "Done Too Soon" (excellent wordplay)
2. "Do You Know What I Mean"
3. "I Am...I Said" (the line about a frog who dreamed of being a prince)
4. "Canta Libre" (sappy song..always got me)
5. "Shilo"

My Muscle Car (1970 GTO)



Prom 1973. My first love and my ex wife. Highschool sweethearts we were. Got my hair cut that day (should've received my money back).Had a blowout that day and had to use a spare. That sucked. Look at her shoes, even then, she only came up to my chin.

The List IS Finished..The 100 Greatest Songs of Rock and Roll!!!






My friend and coworker Steve Mays and I were talking the other day about the top 100 rock songs of all time. It seems that an author he was reading had somehow woven that theme into a great novel.
The author is John Sandford and here is HIS list for the top one hundred of all time http://www.johnsandford.org/prey16x1.html
That got me thinking about the so called top 100 rock songs of all time. A very very subjective subject. Now, after having been in rock radio since 1976, I think I can weigh in on this subject. So, while driving across Nebraska today, I got to think about the various research and whatnot that goes on in classic rock. So, taking into account...times played on the radio...what a song meant to us(the boomers), and familiarity of the song, here we go.
Now this isn't MY top 100 (I will post that later)let's just say, these are the most familiar songs of our generation....ranked somewhat in order..Jessie, did you read the last sentence? It said this is NOT my top 100 but only what I have observed in the radio business. I will post mine later...OK, Jess?
