Yep 1977.  Pulled out my copy of Stage Pass last night and reripped it.  Such a great album.

I'll send you a link for it if you like when it's all cleaned up.  I think now is the time to go back and give his other albums a proper dusting off.  Been talking about that for a long time.

Agree with you on the Springsteen thought.  The voice, yeah.  No slight to Bruce, btw who broke nationally out of Cleveland at the very same time Michael was getting started.  What is amazing when looking back at his career is that while being a working musician, he held his pm drive airshift for 30 straights years at the same terradio Classic Rock station, 98.5 WNCX.  I really haven't listened to music terradio much in the past 20 years since finding RP and had no idea that his run was that long.  That and I have worked until 6 for the last 20 years or so and his shift was over when I got off of work. Just new that he was always there.

We also lost Betty "Krash" Korvan from WMMS Feb 3.  She was living quietly in Lead, SD.  She was one of the best of WMMS and maybe my favorites of all of them and that is saying a lot.

Cause I just saw this, but was last month.
 Mira Furlan, who famously played Danielle Rousseau on TV’s “Lost” and Delenn on “Babylon 5,” died on Jan. 20 at the age of 65. Her manager told the New York Times that the cause of death was complications of the West Nile virus.

 

I really liked her. {#Cheers}

Colbert King finds the true measure of Rush Limbaugh's worth. It ain't pretty. 



Let’s not mince words about Limbaugh’s legacy

“So for Colbert King to say, ‘Rush Limbaugh, his biggest concern was Republicans should do nothing to help Obama.’ Damn right. Damn right. Helping Obama hurts the country.”

— Rush Limbaugh,
July 25, 2011

What had set Rush Limbaugh off? I had noted during Gordon Peterson’s “Inside Washington” talk show on ABC7 that anti-Obama sentiment was behind some of the difficulty in getting anything done in Washington. Referring to President Barack Obama’s active role in ending the showdown over raising the debt ceiling, I had said that the arch-conservative radio host made “no reference to saving the country, no such reference to averting disaster with the debt ceiling. It was a question of helping or hurting Obama.”

And Limbaugh agreed wholeheartedly. After all, it was nothing new for him. As I wrote at the time, four days prior to Obama’s inauguration, Limbaugh famously declared: “I hope he fails.”


...

If so, whatever Limbaugh won was the country’s loss. His legacy lives on through the lives of conservative TV hosts Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and so many others who daily and dutifully serve up the same measures of obnoxiousness that Limbaugh delivered through the microphone for decades.

Of course, that might depend upon what you think after hearing what has come out of his mouth.

Such as:

● Telling a Black caller: “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.”

● Saying on the air: “Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”

● Mocking the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People: “The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.”

● Commenting on professional athletes competing at the highest levels of their sport: “You just gotta be who you are, and I think it’s time to get rid of this whole National Basketball Association. Call it the TBA, the Thug Basketball Association, and stop calling them teams. Call ’em gangs.”

● Commenting on women: “Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of pop culture.”

● Commenting on gay people: “When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anything but an insult; it’s an invitation.” Limbaugh also equated the push to legalize gay marriage to a supposed “movement to normalize pedophilia” on the left. “What has happened to gay marriage?” he said. “It’s become normal. . . . Don’t pooh-pooh it.”

Voice of conservatism, moralistic patriot and courageous lion against liberalism? Or a demagogic and dominating ?

“Winner” would not be my word of choice. Let’s leave it at that.
