Top o teh mornin’, Wheelizens!

Mac --

Our very best wishes re your procedure this morning!

(Also lurve the thread pic; po’, po’ puppeh…)

Paddy --

Glad to read you’re nearly finished installing the shiplap. I think your decision not to attempt the “finishing touches” while you’re tired was a good one and I look forward to seeing some pics of the completed project.

The Rabbit was a part of that great era of FM radio that fought back against corporatism.

That was well before I moved to L.A.; both American radio and popular music have gotten so boringly homogenized since then. Sad!

Back in the day, Cleveland had an “underground” FM station -- WMMS -- which played a phenomenal variety of music. They hired interesting personalities and let them basically play whatever they wanted…including long album cuts.

I’m old…and nearly everything sucks now. Also, get off my lawn, you wretched children! 🙂

Happy Polaroids and Snow Balls Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

Continued prayers for Mac.

Fatwa -- did you ever get to listen to Jim Ladd?

I think he was still at KMET when I moved to L.A. in late ’85 (I was mostly a KKGO listener back then).

The name’s familiar, but I don’t have any strong recollections.

Busy phones and emails today due to the weekend rain.

Glad to hear it, Mac, and thank you for letting us know. BTW, that’s a real softball, teh “working with the left-hand” comment, but I’ll let it pass.

Jim Ladd was quite good back in the 70’s on KLOS -- he’s still around on Sirius Satellite. Same low deep voice.

Friends of mine still recall when Jimmy Rabbitt showed up drunk on the air one night at KMET and then either passed out or left and locked the studio door behind him -- 10 minutes of dead air.

I’m so glad I found JL’s SXM show for you. I feel like a good gerbil.

He does a good job with rock n roll information and history.

“And when a coronavirus wave started building in late October, Californians didn’t cut down on their risky activities as quickly as they had earlier in the pandemic.”

I remember when risky activities were things like driving drunk, sleeping around with a lot of different women, hanging out in bars, doing drugs, etc. Now it’s having people over for dinner and going to church.

The 21st Century is not going the way I thought it would.

Imagine how boring the movie Risky Business would be if they filmed it now.
