"Monntag 3 Julie 2023. 0500. PBS (channel two maybe?). Endeavour,
BBC crime drama set in Oxford UK.
My grandmother's grandparents came from Harwell, UK, near Reading
in Berkshire 1855 (I saw ye olde "Armer Bible; was harmer
but "I dropped my h'ach in the h'ocean"). Oxford is
13.5 miles north of harwell, though I doubt a 1800s "agricultural
labourer' would 'ave much doin' 'round th' college....the Oxford
locals kinda do sound like me English grandmother though; great

"Til Dienstag 4 July 2023. Wookiestock
rained out so I listened to WMEX 1510 AM the afternoon.
Beatles "the night before' was played 9in mono!) and I kinda
can play the solo BUT THE Hopelessly Obscure tune was "oh no
not my baby' by maxine Brown, old r&b. i DID have the album
Spotlight on maxine brown from Diskoveries
allston mass back in the big '80s and barrence
whitfield DID ask me "oh do you like that album";
granted she was a little too slick for the Savages whom would have
prefered more Southern soul, but the reason: THE SEQUINED DRESS!
"Be More flamboyant" whooo!!! (also caught the Little
Richard: The King and Queen of Rock'n'Roll - PBS story but that would fill BOOKS on how GREAT it was!
maxine Brown into Little richard on a "rainy day in July"!
(The Kinks -plus one)".....

"Til Dienstag 4 July 2023. caught the Foreigner
Then and Now PBS video so a few thoughts; i been
following Louis Grammatico since Black
Sheep played WCMF-FM, Rochester NY march '73; I was TYPING
a LETTER to Stenson eddie Flowers with radio on in background
and "this guy has a good voice"; four years later Foreignor
on jukebox at marine barracks Ft meade maryland! BUT, since Lou
had gave Mick Jones a Black Sheep lp when Spooky
Tooth played Rochester, I decided to research pre-Spooky, Jones.
AND: he played guitar for Sylvie Vartan ("The
Armenian Connection"; WAS Vartanian; "book 'em Mannix!")
and 16 jan 64 in Paris, Sylvia with future Foreigner guitarist
Mick Jones DID open for; the Beatles! (some Liverpool wankers
who peaked in hamburg with Pete best...)"....(Here's "Foreigner's
