Once again, if only classic rock radio went a little deeper in the Free catalog than "All Right Now" every once in a while.

Search Stanyan St and Rod McKuen. He lived right across the street from me on Stanyan St. He had a big photo spread in Life or Look Feel The Warm....

voila: media.gettyimages.com... (thank you, cool!)
  Wed. 4/5/17 3:50pm Elle Tor's Husband:

McKuen left when he hit it big and his house was empty for a long time so we used to sneak in and rifle the cupboards. I remember all the Mail on the floor - hundreds of letters...

I don't care how much you despise VZ and MSFT, in my brief life, Logitech has delivered the absolute worst tech support experiences. I'm delighted to slam them over the airwaves.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 4/5/17 4:04pm Irwin:

I get feverish discussing my hatred for Logitech. I tremble and start to perspire.
  Wed. 4/5/17 4:13pm shtus:

oh shit
  Wed. 4/5/17 4:17pm Jack:

I'm with you Irwin! I just put my crappy faulty Logitech speakers curbside. They really sucked, and then they broke.

Speaking of Al Kooper; Shuggie Otis gets played on FMU a bit, but didn't Al Kooper discover him? They made an album when Shuggie was 15, but I've never heard it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 4/5/17 4:32pm melinda:

Playful self-loathing, the good kind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 4/5/17 4:33pm Passaic River Blues:

@Jack: the Kooper-Otis record is pretty cool. I have an old CD-R of it somewhere. There is one really long jam hybrid blues jam I recall really liking (even if I can't recall the title).
@Melinda: Joe's needling of his buddy right now is giving me life.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 4/5/17 4:37pm Irwin:

Al discovered Shuggie and produced his debut (titled Kooper Session, a play on Super Session). Don't think they worked together again. Al indicated that Shuggie was socially dysfunctional, but that's not the word he used.

Irwin - is that from Kooper's bio? I read it a couple years back but don't remember lots.

Well, at least there are no Logitech vacuum cleaners that would cause anyone grief ... yet.
  Wed. 4/5/17 4:41pm Jack:

I was going to ask Irwin if he was vacuuming. I generally like to vacuum during Fabio's show; the music he plays often blends with the vacuum cleaner in wonderful ways, produces beautiful music (although the cats don't like it much)
