Classic Rock Bottom


I will start off with a few more Real River songs, Rivers that geographically do exist.
Then a couple regarding one of America's most famous Rivers, at least in song, that we have been misspelling for well over a century!
I have a story about doing a show one time, and Engineer Ken Stanley refusing to play a song that I wanted to come on next.
So while one song was playing, and running down with each second, I was out of the studio insisting the next tune was the way to go, all the while listening to that playing song tick away, knowing I had only seconds to literally run to be back on the microphone.
Ken and I have laughed about that incident for years now.
Particularly in light of what he did next, lol!
I will play that problematic song, and also my vindication for insisting that it was a damn good one.
In between, the most aptly named Artist of the entire Series.
Ending this Theme in an almost Full Circle way, I have a song that refers back to the very first song I played to open it!
Hope you enjoyed the Trip.
Be Kind To Your Rivers!

You write a lot for a guy who doesn't like WORDS, LOL!

It was Engineer Ken Stanley, he exists and retired and is playing little guitar concerts around the country.

Maybe you can catch him somewhere and ask him!

Thanks for the listen!

No, Mike. I do not like words. I like to avoid them as much as possible.

And the continuing saga of the fictitious Engineer Mike continues.....
