Thanks Rudyjeep for the apology. It was the way you dismissed the whole Baby Boomer generation as hypocritical that got to me when only a minority were pacifists in the first place. I do think it was the draft that so motivated so many of my generation to protest the war since there is something evil about a government that felt it had the right to force teenagers to become killers or be killed in a war that made no sense. For that very reason I think our current wars would have been more vigurously protested if the draft was still intact. As it is, it is a little harder to condemn the government for utilizing an army that has volunteered for such service. Of course, many of those in the service joined as a last resort in a world of little opportunity but it's not the same as being legally forced into that position. It would take mass desertions and protests by the armed services itself to have the same impact that our protests had in the Viet Nam era. And you're right, after 9/11 many went over to the dark side to embrace revenge rather than less destructive ways to respond to that attack. I personally lost my best friend because of his political about face.

Thanks.  Who's Seth?  Or is that a dumb question?

disjointed morning so far, but...yeah, somewhere in my boxes of thousands of cassette tapes is a set of my old airchecks. I'm sure a lot of my voice-overs and other commercials are in there, too.

I was on WPAP 92.5 in Panama City. A perpetual #1 station in the area. I was at a big rock station before that, I think it was 94.5, but I honestly don't remember.  Mike

I had a radio show on crcfm in Castlebar, Ireland, for a couple of years after leaving the 100, ooo watt giant here in the South, but I was working full-time and it wore my ass out. I've been getting  come-ons from a new station in the West of Ireland recently, and I may try it again.

     I have never done anything that was closer to my heart than radio. I love it, love the invisible-ness of it, the voices, the music, and how they invade our hearts when we're alone.

     ND is a great site and I've missed the chance to talk about my love of music and radio for a long time. Hope we meet someday. I live in the Florida Panhandle along the wild Gulf of Mexico. Maggie and I have a monthly gathering at our seven acre spread we call Maggie's Farm. It's walking distance from one of the most pristine and beautiful creeks in the South. People come from around the world to canoe/kayak/tube it. It's called Econfina Creek.

     Good to spend time with you, and a pleasure to meet you on this august site.  Here's hoping it's (paraphrasing Bogart in Casablanca) the beginning of a great friendship.

I hope I got this right. Good to talk to you directly. This is the best site I've found to listen and learn from since the Prodigy days back in the 18th century. Good to meet you

Hey Rudyjeep................. You left me a comment about Geneseo and Buzzo. I'm just getting the hang of No Depression. I like it a lot but there's a few things I miss - like your comment.

Anyway, you mentioned getting me up to Rochester. I'd love to. Any venues?
