Yeah, Denton's always been a hard left turn from the rest of the state. Around 2000 or so, my weed dealer dyed his dreadlocks red, white & blue (they were usually rainbow!) and ran for mayor on the Green Party ticket. He didn't win, but he got about 28% of the vote — which is a lot of people willing to vote for a gender-noncomforming pot dealer, given that it's a Texas city.

Hughie: Sometimes life is fair! I was already a Hillage/Hatfield/etc. fan when I first heard National Health. I was in Middle Earth Records in Downey, CA. Before NH's first album they were playing a bootleg of the band when Bill Bruford was working with them. (I believe the music has been legitimately issued, as I have a comp of their stuff with Bruford.) Anyway, when the first album arrived, Steve Boudreau, founder of Greenworld, an import record distribution company, handed me a promo copy.

The albums on which Miller plays or conducts classical music aren't billed as Miller records. Here's DJ Jim Svejda, one of Miller's friends: "Svejda, taking his turns in the pitchman’s seat, seemed at times barely able to contain himself on the air, rhapsodizing extemporaneously about the soul-nourishing grandeur of Beethoven, the genius of Jascha Heifetz, the transcendental oboe virtuosity of Mitch Miller."

The car was waiting for the signal to turn green. Stan looked in the car and Dennis was slumped in the passenger seat. "Hey you're Dennis - I love you music!" Dennis sunk even lower in his seat and said "Thanks man." and the car sped off.

A couple months later Dennis was dead.
