Philly-bred, thru and thru!
The first record I remember purchasing with my own funds was Aladdin Sane by the one-n-only Bowie!
Honestly, the first cassettes I remember owning were blank, and I recorded a mix of my 45s from the late 70s and early 80s to carry around in my Walkman!
This changes with the weather, but I've always had a soft spot for Electric Light Orchestra, Kraftwerk, Nina Simone, and Queen.
I continue to love and support Bunnydrums – and I have a special place in my heart for The Vels!
My favorite movie is Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders, a true classic. Also in my top ten is another Wenders flick, Until The End Of The World, which has a great soundtrack!
The most memorable meeting for me was years back when I got to meet Edith Massey (of John Waters fame) at the legendary East Side Club – she was on her "Big Girls Don't Cry" tour... she even taught me how to cheat at cards while backstage!
I played (?) keyboards in a punk/new wave band called The Accidentals – it was an accident that we even formed as a band, quite frankly.
Volunteering – it's the key to every good path in life!
Well, if I tell you, then you will know them! But here are a few things you might not know. I don't wear a watch, don't own a cellphone, and never learned how to drive!!
I am proud to have called WXPN home for 21+ years! Before that I was the General Manager for Au Courant Newsmagazine in Philadelphia (82-86) and also did some volunteer work for XPN in the early 80s with the late, great Lee Paris and "Yesterday"s Now Music Today"!
