Mike Marino – A Chimpanzee and Jerry Mathers as The Beaver!

Posted in Opinion with tags , , , , , , , , on June 19, 2018 by segarini
 
Radio was also a garden of interviews with the famous, infamous and not so famous or infamous to a crazed chimpanzee that was a last minute Bay Area fill in for a no show Jerry Mathers as the Beaver. Quite honestly the Chimp was more exciting. I have all these taped and in my possession and when I need a reality check and humility fix..I put them on and enjoy the flubs, bloopers and operator error fuck ups.

Mike Marino – CJOM, Tim Buckley, The Rock and Roll Farm, and The Grande Old Dame

The 70’s in Detroit! Live local bands, rock and roll venues were everywhere! Beer was cheap at the clubs and it was a Rock and Roll solar system as were most large cities with local live music!

I’ve written many pieces about radio..mostly major highlights I experienced, but there were also those little pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that gave life to that career and not just a few laughs so I will explore my cranial caverns of memory to let them fall to the digital page, that is if they agree to….

Mike Marino Asks:.. “When A Canadian Rock Station and a Hash Pipe Meet In a Head On Collision – Free Concerts in a Biker Park?”

1973…Dee-troit radio was a mixture of formats and talent. The Drake-Chenault Big Boss Jocks to Casey Kasem Top 40 shmaltz. The AM airwaves were a congested freeway of screaming Pukers as we refer to the “old school” of over enunciation and pseudo-hip chatter that not only came from somewhere deep in the cave of ego, dark and forbidding, but was delivered faster than bullets from a machine gunning killer of the old Detroit Purple Gang during prohibition.

PIG and PERRY

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2018 by segarini

It was only last month that Iggy turned 71, remember?

This month however, we virtually celebrate the Birthday of a crooner of an entirely different stroke, but one no less impressive and influential in his own unique way than that head, headstrong Stooge.

But Don’t Believe A Word I Say! For today we turn the fond reminiscences and frank remembrances completely over to a proud parade of Pig pals who pay tribute to the one and still only Pierino Ronald Como, who could have – nay, should have been celebrating his 106th on the 18th…

Fernando Periscope’s Fabulous Fun Filled Facebook Follies – The Robert Segarini Line of Time

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 26, 2018 by segarini

Hello.

I am Fernando Periscope.

Mr. Bob is up to his well-defined elbows in Texas No Bean Chili of his own design, rustic Mexican Rice, and a beautiful and healthy (if you insist on looking at it that way) Iceberg lettuce salad drizzled and besotted with an Olive Oil and Vinegar vinaigrette dressing, thin-sliced red onion, and crumbled Roquefort cheese. So demanding are his primitive culinary skills and excitement awaiting his guests for this evening’s repast, discourse, and motion picture study of the 3D variety, that he asked me, his faithful companion of long standing, Fernando Periscope, to address and amuse you on this, his Blog of Note. If you will please follow me by clicking on the continue reading link, (and please stay together in an orderly fashion), your evening’s entertainment will begin.

Bob Quickly Ties Up Loose Ends….and Finally Finishes that Beatle/Rolling Stone Thing-y

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , , on May 18, 2018 by segarini

Let’s see…where were we? Gimme a sec…hold on…oh yeah!

Let’s clear up the silly stuff going on right now before we wrap up the whole “Beatles/Stones” thing.

Yanny vs Laurel – Didn’t click on it, don’t know what it means, don’t give a fuck.

Politics – Trump and Ford. I don’t bother anymore. They both say/do stupid shit, then everybody argues. Shut up about the Conservatives/Republicans and vote the bastards out of office so I can see something besides the constant, boring, whiney, bullshit all over social media, and return to the joy of Kitties and Puppies Riding Roombas, Cheesecake pictures from the past, and videos of women who drive away from gas stations (or electrical stations) with the hose still dragging behind their car, and pictures of your kids/grandkids being used for everything from doorstops to pillows when their Dad’s and Grand Dad’s babysit. With the ability to scroll past the constant stream of Political debate, I now use the time to get in some quality Angry Birds action….

Yesterday I went through all of the private messages I’d shared with Frank Gutch Jr, since I’d first encountered him. It was in 2013, just after I’d begun writing this weekly column, and right from that first message, it was as though we were separated at birth.
