    High School music and John Denver later in College. Boy memories.

    Gloria, The Shadows of Night. Ken LaCost who was the drummer performing with his brothers was in my 8th [?] grade class.
    Eight Miles High, The Byrd’s. “Never did no dope man.”
    We All Live in A Yellow Submarine, About the only song Ringo ever sang solo on. Now you know why.
    Cross Roads, Cream. Anything with Ginger Baker on the drums, Jack Bruce keyboard and Eric Clapton strings.
    My little Town, Simon and Garfunkel. Goose bumps and tears.
    Solider Boy, I was building a Revelle plastic model of the USS Forestall in my bedroom when I first heard that tune.
    Down Town, Petula Clark.
    Rock and Roll hoochie koo Rick Derringer and Johnny Winter. My intro song on WILN, campus of Illinois State University radio station.
    Knights in White Satin, Moody Blues. Need I say more? King Bisket Flour Hour on WXRT, Chicago’s Fine Rock Station.
    Battle of New Orleans, British kept a’coming…
    Hot Rod Lincoln, Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen.
    Dead man’s curve, Jan and Dean, crash and burn. Wolfman Jack. Need I say more?
    I want to hold your hand, Beatles and so much more.

    You know what’s funny? We’ll all be rocking to Stair Way To Heaven, sitting in our diapers and wheelchairs waiting to be fed by some cute young thing.
    We’ll be drooling but that’s because we won’t be able to help it.
