Here’s Top Cat for Kellogg’s Corn Flakes.
I always liked Top Cat. I guess you can still see him on Boomerang, one of the many Turner TV stations on cable. Which, of course, we don’t get, but there’s an app.
Before I go any further: Battle of the Bands will return on July 15.
Happy Canada Day to everyone in Canada! It’s also the beginning of the second half of the year, although that won’t start until noon tomorrow. A lot of businesses start their fiscal year on July 1, even though the tax year runs from January to December. Local governments start today, too, though some start in September, when school starts (or at least used to). Here’s the summary for last week.
I used freebie day to participate in a meme that a friend of mine started on Facebook, to name the ten most-influential albums I had that I still listen to. He said in the meme that I didn’t have to explain why, but I did, as well as to play a song from each, because, after all, it was M4.
I finished my series of performers from the Baby Boom Years with the quintessential choice for performers from that period, Elvis Presley. More on my next series in a minute.
Found a funny status on Lamebook and shared that.
I discussed free stuff as a way to write a post that ended with the word “free.” The end was a little cumbersome, but it went well.
The survey was from Radio Veronica, which broadcast from a ship off the coast of Hilversum, The Netherlands, from 1968.
The prompt was “cheers,” which threw me for a bit of a loop, but I made it through okay.
Tomorrow on M4 we’ll be doing our annual tribute to the United States of America. The new theme for Two for Tuesday will be “Summer Reruns”: repeats of Two For Tuesdays from previous years. Some will be artists from the Baby Boom years, by the way. The usual one-liner for this wednesday, a survey from the first week of July from some city other than New York, Chicago or Los Angeles this Friday, and I have to wait on prompts from Kat and Linda for Thursday and Saturday. Oh, and I finally get my implant this week, after only about nine months, so I might have something to say about that. Stay tuned.
