  2. Thanks for the Westport shout-out...and for writing me into the story. BTW, if Eric and Wally had tried the next house the storyline would have been much different....

  8. Welcome to your Brand New Year, Eric! Stay well and enjoy! Dave
  9. Regarding Keith Barbour's version of "Everything": I've always loved it...until today. Now, all I hear is Adam Sandler singing the song!!
  10. Sure would be interesting to hear what Eric thinks of his beloved Cleveland Indians' name change? It gets a raspberry from me. Dave
  11. that's the word I was looking for!
  12. I'm not sure if I'm sure if I love or hate this. https://sowndhaus.audio/track/19803/hungry-eyes-in-the-sky-dj-a-bbic-2021-valentines-mashup Dave
  13. In the winter 1978 I worked as a weekend overnight announcer at "FM 93 WNTQ" in Syracuse. It was a 'beautiful music' station. The station sat at the end of a dead end road in a frozen snow-covered marshy field on the outskirts of town. I remember Ray Conniff's ABM popping up on the playlist and, if you had happened to drive down that dead end road at 3AM that sub-zero Syracuse night, and looked in the window of the broadcast booth, you probably would have caught me singing along while conducting the world's largest make-believe orchestra...all by myself
  14. congrats on getting closer to 3 mil !!
  15. The voice is different, but he sure looks like Eric:
  16. consider me a lifetime member!
  17. In my post (18 years ago!) I mentioned hearing GATW for the first time on a gray AM radio. That particular radio is long gone, but I had such an affinity for it that, a few years ago, I hunted for a picture of it on line...and voila...there it was! A grayish green SEARS Silvertone AM Radio...exactly like my old one. I posted the pic on my FB page (with some fond memories of listening to one just like it). Within a day I had an Instant Message from Doug Preis (the voice of the Lucky Charms Leprechaun, and dozens of other characters, who I had worked with during my cereal commercial writing days). He told me a package would be arriving soon. Sure enough, 3 days later a grayish green SEARS Silvertone AM radio, exactly like the one from my childhood, arrived at my door. And it works! I've yet to hear GATW from its 50+ year old speakers, but I'll keep tuning in until I do! Dave (LobsterLvr)
  18. If we put a list together of how Eric's and the Raspberries' ALBUMS/CDs sold, (from the most to the least) what would that list look like? (excluding greatest hits and live compilation) Here's my guess: ERIC - Arista RASPBERRIES - Fresh RASPBERRIES - First RASPBERRIES - Starting Over ERIC - Change of Heart RASPBERRIES - Side 3 ERIC - Boats Against The Current ERIC - Geffen ERIC - Tonight Your Mine ERIC - Winter Dreams Any thoughts? Dave
  19. Kirk, I got Cindy to send me a full pic. I added it to the old shot. Yup...it's Eric's first solo band mates.
  20. A friend of mine (Cindy) just found this while cleaning out a closet. She worked at an Ithaca radio station back in the '70's. This must have been from one of Eric's first solo concerts up there in Central NY. Lot of familiar names. Note the date at the top. Dave
  21. Let's create a COVID 19 Playlist....starting with this one!
  22. Niiiiiiice! I saw them in Lowell, Mass that same week. (Mid Dec. 1974) Play on!!!!
  23. I'm a big fan of "Rewound Radio". You can get it via Tune-In. It's hosted by a former WABC part-timer and died-in-the-wool AM radio guy. Every year he does a countdown of the most voted-for oldies. Everyone can vote for their top 10 favorite oldies via email...once. This year the Raspberries, Eric, and Fotomaker (!) made the list. #2581: Where Have You Been All My Life - Fotomaker #2260: Change of Heart - EC #1735: Let's Pretend - Rasp #1413: Hungry Eyes - EC #876: I Wanna Be With You - Rasp #82: Go All The Way - Rasp (ABM, NGFILA and Overnight Sensation did not make the list....which means they did not get a single vote...not one! Maybe we can do better next year.) Here's the list...in its entirety. Enjoy it while listening to Rewound Radio. You'll enjoy it! https://www.musicradio77.com/2019FreeTop77.html https://rewoundradio.com/ Dave
