@myron feld: I like the idea of Ralph and his bandmates adopting the band name as their surnames a la the Ramones.

Anchorman John Chancellor of NBC News didn't really talk about that part of his career very much, but we all know!

Joe, did you know that the Manhattans of "Kiss and Say Goodbye" '70s soul fame are actually from Jersey City? I suppose the more accurate "The One PATH Stop Away From Manhattans" wouldn't fit on the label.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Mike Sin:

After first hearing that Buccaneers' track, oh... I don't know, 35 years ago, it's cool to find out at this stage that they were from Jersey!

Also, for your Declaration of Dependence show, does the brother and sister in the Clefs of Lavender Hill changing their names from Joseph and Lorraine Ximenez to the blatantly Anglophile Travis and Coventry Fairchild count?
