  1. So what's up with Tyler Perry?

    For some time now I've been seeing "Tyler Perry" and processing it like this:

    "Walk This Way (Tyler-Perry) 3:40"

    But apparently "Tyler Perry" is something / someone different.

    What am I missing?


  2. Remember Bruce who, after many years, folded Not Lame Records a while back?

    Well Bruce is back!

  3. Totally cool, Kirk. Thanks.

    Real good fun to study the charts.

    I have similar from WIXY 1260 in Cleveland framed in The Music Room: 8/24/73 has "Tonight" as #31.

    When I get the chance I'm going to post a link you're really going to like, Kirk. Stay tuned!

  5. REALLY looking forward to it!

    As for VOX! assistant GM Spike, he's on TRIPLE secret probation after his "Cretin Hoppers" fantasy baseball fiasco in the EC league. Disgracing the family name I say! Anyhow, football's his game.

    Eagerly awaiting draft order. I gotta simple plan . . .


  6. Back before cable TV, the WWF and Hulk Hogan and friends nationalized the business, professional wrestling was an intensely regional "sport".

    Pro wrestling was a TV programmer's dream come true: a camera, a ring, a couple of sandlot field bleachers, a few packs of Cub Scouts and you had a show!

    Usually on Saturday night. Usually at dinnertime. Usually on UHF. (The channels with the big numbers.)

    What was the pro wrestling scene where you grew up?

    In Cleveland circa 1970 I recall:

    *** "Big Time Wrestling" was on WUAB, Channel 43

    *** They played "Classical Gas" as the theme music

    *** Johnny Powers was the ultimate good guy

    *** Bulldog Brauer (The Man of the Hour) was the ultimate bad guy

    *** Then Johnny snapped and became a REALLY Bad Guy, beat the crap out of Bulldog Brauer and they played Bulldog for sympathy

    *** Bobo Brazil -- he of the "Coco Butt" head butt fame

    *** Pampeiro Firpas -- the Wild Bull of the Pampas, and Bobo's continent neighbor, I presume

    *** When one of the stooge / loser wrestlers got kicked in the groin, the announcer would intone, "That's gotta hurt."

    Why / how I recall all this: I have no idea.

    What am I forgetting about Cleveland?

    What was the scene in your town?

    Wrestling was so much simpler back then . . .
