For starters, we heard from our other Ides Of March concert ticket winner ...
Here is Mike DeMartino's take on the show he saw at The City Winery last Wednesday Night ...
I will now have the daunting task of measuring up to the skills of a Mr. Chet Coppock (gulp)!
I did not read Chet's review on purpose today. God did he get any sleep? I knew I was cooked when Chet started taking notes last night and this dork (affectionally called by my girlfriend) did not bring a pen and pad! Oh well, here goes ...
I entered the Palace called the City Winery and much to amazement was seated by the first table to the right of the stage. I greatly enjoyed the food and drink (sorry, not a big wine drinker so I had a Pepsi). Great seats, good food and a totally enjoyable time.
Ronnie Rice will be appearing with two of the original, founding members of The New Colony Six, Ray Graffia, Jr. and Walt Kemp at The Prairie Center For The Arts on St. Patrick's Day, March 17th, at 7:30 PM, right here in Schaumburg! (Can't miss THIS one!!!)
And you can still take advantage of our Buy One, Get One Free ticket offer for the Tommy James and the Shondells concert at The Genesee Theatre (featuring Special Guests, The Association), but you'd better hurry 'cause they're going fast.
Thanks ... haven't heard it in years!
I found a second one that I'm guessing is also you ... check it out. (kk)
Chuck Buell Here! ~~~
In Forgotten Hits Bonus #11, Ron Riley related about his Fifth Dimension Coca Cola commercial tag line, "... having a golden day with Coke!" and he concluded with, "... if you used that line today, you'd be Twittered to death!"
"Twittered to death!" Pretty funny line, Ron!
Here's how I imagine being "Twittered to death" in the early 1960s looked like!

If you check out today's calendar posting, you'll see 1967's WLS Personality Magazine mentioned ... man, this thing sold out everywhere back in the day. (That's how popular these DJ's were back then)
Attached is something I'd forgotten I had: A Paul Revere & the Raiders Oddity ...
Good luck with it. I'm loving it; that was my freshman / sophomore year at Lane Tech, and music was a very big deal to those in my circles.
Early this morning it dawned on me that back in 1967 here in the OKC area, there were two songs-records that made it to number one here in the city but did not chart nationally according to the Billboard Hot 100. Bubbling under, that I don't know. As the year goes on, I will indicate to you said records.
