Bob – *Cough* Wheeeze *Cough* (Choke) Gasp! *Cough* *Cough* *Cough* Wheeze (Choke) *Cough* Gasp!

I have a Cold

I Cannot Lie

It’s 10 Times Worse

Cause I’m a Guy

I Cough and Cough

And Cough Again

Just Shoot Me Now

And Make it End

I am exhausted. My ribs hurt from 3 days of continuous coughing. My throat is sore to the point that I now sound like a velociraptor looking for lunch.

I have coughed up enough clumps of phlegm to build a life size statue of Billy Eilish, and by March 1st, if this keeps up, I’ll be able to repurpose the Eilish Phlegm into a life size statue of Baseball Great, Lou “The Babe Ruth” Gehrig.

And by the way, phlegm is disgusting.



Radio Hi-Jinx

Jade Dunlop, the late George Christie and I do Halloween fun on SIRIUS SAT/RAD and Greg Godovitz and I try to get a listener to steal a phone from his mailman on MOJO Radio AM 640

A Commercial Demo Reel from Radio MOI. Written, voiced, and sang by me, and produced by me and Michael White, who also did the engineering.

The Strange Demo of One of the Three Weirdest Songs I Have Ever Written

Me, myself and I at Thunder Sound. It is possible drugs were involved.

Upon listening to this for the first time since the late ’70s …it does sound as though drugs MAY have played a part in this …this …thing.

A Short Set of Lovelies by the Not-As-Lovely Anger Brothers

Greg Godovitz is many things. One of which is a devotee of British Invasion era British Invasion music and songs of the British Invasion Persuasion Informed by the British Invasion Artists and their British Invasion era Songs.

To this end, our Hofner Hambone, Our Prince of Perogies, formed The Greg Godovitz Orchestra and Chorus, featuring the aforementioned Greg Godovitz, an Orchestra, Ron Christian, and a Chorus, Our Own Befuddled Robert Segarini.

Armed only with nerves of steel and the dream of roaming the countryside playing the songs heard in Greg’s Vision to those who found themselves trapped in the same room as the Greg Godovitz Orchestra and Chorus, and, busy socializing, partaking of limitless libation, and gorging on wings, potato skins, jalapeno poppers and other Ambrosia of the Pub Gods, would be too busy to mind. And so it came to pass.

Well, one thing lead to another, and somewhere along the way, the GGOC morphed into The Anger Brothers with Steve Jensen, Doug Inglis, Mike Pellerin, Brad Lovatt, Greg, myself, and the occasional Ron Christian.

This is a short 25 minute live set of the Angers at the now not there anymore Hard Rock Cafe’s 279 Club, recorded on an odd little device that recorded straight to CD. About 22 minutes in, the sound starts to get pretty good, but hey …it’s still okay.

After housing the Hard Rock Cafe and the broadcast booth of Q107, I find it both ironic and apropo that the building is now a DRUG Store …and local rock museum.

Brad Lovatt shines on keys, Pellerin is a Bass God, in fact, everyone is great, although I manage to hit 3 of the worst notes of my career in the one song I sing lead on. So bad are the notes, that I cannot tell if they are sharp or flat. They are just icky.

There were no audience mics, so it sounds like we’re playing to a janitor and a bartender, but in fact, the place was pretty full and responsive. So there.

The Anger Brothers Live

Okay, the coughing is making it hard for me to breathe, which is making it hard for me to sneeze. BENYLIN!

Enjoy your weekend.


Segarini’s regular columns march to a very odd drummer

dbawis-button7giphyBob “The Iceman” Segarini was in the bands The Family Tree, Roxy, The Wackers, The Dudes, and The Segarini Band and nominated for a Juno for production in 1978. He also hosted “Late Great Movies” on CITY TV, was a producer of Much Music, and an on-air personality on CHUM FM, Q107, SIRIUS Sat/Rad’s Iceberg 95, (now 85), and now publishes, edits, and writes for DBAWIS, continues to write music, make music, and record.

  1. Mike Mcmanman Says:

    To follow upon the phlegm thing, I recall years ago the Sons of Champlin briefly decided to go by the name of Yogi Phlegm. Feel free to google research this as I do not want to google the word phlegm.


    2 shots of Anisette every 4 hours should help…
