This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Jewel Food Stores. A store within a store!
I worked at Jewel for a year and a half when I was in high school, and hated every minute of it.
Happy Memorial Day weekend! This is considered the unofficial start of summer here in the US, and it’s also a day to remember the fallen men and women in the Armed Forces. In recent years, it’s become a day when we thank all our veterans, although the holiday for that is Veterans Day on November 11. If you’re a veteran or on active duty or someone in your family is, thank you for your service.
It’s been a fun-filled and exciting week here. Okay, I’m exaggerating a little. I think I’ll let you be the judge. Here’s the summary for the week.
- (Song Lyric) Sunday: Traffic, “40,000 Headmen”
Monday: Dennis Coffey, “Taurus”
Tuesday: Kool & The Gang, “Summer Madness”
Wednesday: El Chicano, “Viva Tirado”
Friday: Santana, “Incident at Neshabur”
Saturday: Gato Barbieri, “Fiesta”
It was a freebie day, and I shared the entire Herb Alpert album Whipped Cream And Other Delights. It was an influential album in 1966 when it came out and sounds almost as good today, especially if you get one of the remastered albums.
This week’s questions: what I resent paying for, the most unsettling film I’ve seen, whether I judge people, and how I’d finish a sentence.
Yacht Rockster Kenny Loggins was the featured artist.
Saw a funny one-liner on Twitter and just had to share it.
I wrote about my desktop computer being very slow, and the steps I took this week to speed it up. I’m sending it out to have more memory and a 1 TB solid-state drive installed. I’m still waiting on the box to pack it in, which will probably arrive Tuesday, Wednesday at the latest.
In my recently-concluded battle, Gary Hoey beat Thin Lizzy.
We visited KLCN in Blytheville, Arkansas and played their Top 10 from May 21, 1956.
Did a little Chicago TV history and talked about Chatter, a chimpanzee who was a children’s TV star, the emphasis on was.
No surprises are in store for this week, unless I get a bug up my rear end about something.
