"Sonntag 10 April 22, Palm Sunday. Asa Brebner cd I am not gone volume two. track eleven is "Tit for tat" by Garr Lange and the Folsom Brothers. Garr Lange on vocals; in '80s he did alt-country with Garr Lange and the Big Rig. you can "like' him on facebook, I think I wrote. you can friend Mark Sutton on facebook; he does guitar and harpsichord and was in THE RINGS! (Rolling Stone about '81 said they were "neo-cars" but hey, major label etc.). Greg McCleary is on bass/drum/keyboard; a mass Art grad,whom in '87 started Heart Bunch Studios in Allston; map coordinates looks like "Dead Boston Club" The Underground. Pedigrees aside, this is a superb gospel-r and b Stax-Volt sounding toon; I-IV-VI for the chorus and I-VI-II-V for chorus and then that bridge! buy the cd, money goes to Asa's kids, I still got ten weeks and ten tunes to go, I should only live so long...'...

Palm Sunday part two. (exciting day off). Matt Burns of V gave me a $25 gift certificate to Somerville Grooves of which I cleaned him out of $2.00 world/folk/country albums (TO be reviewed!). Also, tossed in FREE ("Let's call it even"....) was Me by Elton John (bio, hardcover) October 2019 release; I know I saw it at Harvard Coop pre-lockdown (can I go there again?) and October 2019, maybe I opened for 999....As I listened to my two years ago bought Somerville Grooves Monkees albums, I read Sir reginald KENNETH book and (giving away the beginning) the Long John Baldry stories are funny and flamboyant! Also, reading Bernie taupin's lyrics for first tyme; "kinda Tolien-esque, like "whiter shade of pale"....hmmmm… maybe Bernie and I could write "Twin Cities of Elton's mind"...…."......

"Dienstag 12 april 22. BBC-Four has "Teatime"  British comedy. (it's on the site). This was 1830 in the evening so 130 pm "back in the states". Bumper music: "when I get home", a 1966 45 off a Spencer Davis Group album I had more than Fiddy years on. Autumn '66 was the UK release (26 August 66; my father left for 'Nam the next month). The 45 released then also. September 1966, this song was performed in The Ghost Goes gear: it's on YouTube (the song) and imagine Corporal Ed Wood di-recting hard Day's it!".....

Johnny and Jumper cables "Landmine"played on WFMU 10 April 22 RIGHT after "The End' by the Doors! ECTASTIC coz Jimbo and I have mutual Rathbun ancestry out of Ditton, Lancashire; did a google British map and our ancestral Ditton was 11 miles from Liverpool and about an hour from Blackburn, Lanchasire (how many holes DOES it take to fill the Albert hall?).
