Here’s George Fenniman for Chesterfield king size cigarettes.
A quiet week here at Chez Holton. We ordered lunch for our anniversary and had it delivered, because Mary didn’t want to go out and pick it up, and it worked out great. For us, that’s a treat. She also placed her first order with Whole Foods and had it delivered. She might be getting to like having things delivered. Which is fine with me.
I can’t believe we’re as far from New Year’s Eve as we are. Seems like not too long ago we were celebrating the new year, and here it’s already been a month. What happens when you spend a lot of time at home. Like I said the other day, I’m getting to where I don’t want to go out.
As much as nothing has been going on at home, there’s been a ton of activity here on the blog, so let’s see what happened last week.
- (Song Lyric) Sunday: Two by Chester Burnett
- Monday: Speedy West, “On The Alamo”
- Tuesday: Quintette du Hot Club de France, “J’Attendrai”
- Wednesday: Elmore James, “Shake Your Money Maker”
- Thursday: “Hogan’s Heroes March”
- Friday: Shirley Bassey, “Goldfinger”
- Saturday: Horst Jankowski, “A Walk In The Black Forest”
Freebie day, so I played the year-end #1’s from 1960-1969. Simple, but elegant.
This week, I shared whether it’s important to trust someone you like, whether I hold grudges, the most sensible thing anyone said, and whether crying is a sign of weakness or strength.
We visited KSJB in Jamestown, North Dakota and checked out their Top Ten from January 31, 1969.
I gave a song that had a profession in the title (which I extended to mean "job"), a day of the week, and a vehicle.
Found something on Lamebook that was a particularly apt description of graduation. It reminded me that I graduated in January 1978. I have no idea where my diploma is, you’ll just have to trust me.
The question this week was, if I had to spend the rest of my life at a certain age, what age would that be? I answered 25, as long as Mary could be eternally one year younger, because that’s what the difference in our ages is now. I didn’t ask her what age she’d like to be, but whateer she said, I’d need to be a year older. So, if she said 16, I’d have to be 17. Maybe I’ll ask her. Maybe not…
Bass player extraordinaire Lee Sklar was my subject this week. Not only is he probably one of the world’s best bass players, he seems like a genuinely nice guy.
The prompt was to use "the end" in the first sentence and "the beginning" in the last sentence. I got really stuck and finally just stream of consciousnessed it (which is what I was supposed to do, anyway…).
Tomorrow, I’ll be doing songs about "sweet" things and will also be doing a Battle of the Bands. Beyond that, I don’t know.
