TRIBUTE/MEMORIAL FOR 2010 PT.4 FINAL

Concluding a tradition I have been doing for years, but skipped last year.

This year I felt like bringing it back.

It’s a celebration of the lives of those we lost in the previous year- in this case 2010.

Mostly, it’s an Irish Wake!

Many of these people have undoubtedly touched you in some way, shape or form, and made your life a bit happier and more…

TRIBUTE/MEMORIAL FOR 2010 PT.2

This is a tradition I have been doing for years, but I skipped it last year- thought it might be getting played out.

Now I felt like bringing it back.

TRIBUTE/MEMORIAL FOR 2010 PT.1

ALRIGHT!!! It's snowing here again, and I LOVE it!

And in my usual childish way I had to get out there in it, just came in and I have to report it is not the best snow for throwing snowballs, kinda flaky but if you stick with it you can get a decent one to throw.

Well...ahem...on to the show.…

MELLENCAMPCOUGARJOHN PT.4 END

Alright, putting a cap on the Mellencamp Chronicles.

We are at the point where John gets divorced (something I have never officially done!).

And discover that he never drank or took drugs, but from what I hear and see about divorces he must have been tempted!

He released a somber LP as a result, Big Daddy.

His next album went back to the basics,…

MELLENCAMPCOUGARJOHN PT.3

I started this one out using a record executive’s buzzword, just for fun.

We are up to John’s 1985 LP Scarecrow, a classic American rock album.

That year was also the start of Farm Aid, and I remember the hours & hours long telecast.

Farm Aid continues to this day, and while I do not doubt John’s concerned sincerity, it also marked the beginning of…

MELLENCAMPCOUGARJOHN PT.2

Continuing on, John Mellencamp’s breakthrough album was American Fool.

He won a Grammy and had his only # 1 song on Billboard.

I mentioned in this episode that in my life I have always been known to be somewhat rebellious.

Engineer Ken started laughing hysterically.

Even after the show, and I had forgotten about it, he was still laughing and breaking my…

MELLENCAMPCOUGARJOHN PT.1

First off, I was disappointed that as I got to the radio station it wasn’t snowing.

I had a brought a song with me to play, and the forecast was for wonderful snow!

However, I was able to open the show with a rare demonstration of my excellent interviewing ability- something I just don’t often

get to do, lol!

The featured artist is John and the Cougars and Mellencamps and Smiths and Jones…

His first album was a total failure, and his manager had…
