For Dear FlowerChild

Heh... you may not have heard the story of how the band almost broke up last year, Flower... we were doing an important show downtown, the same time that Auburn was playing Alabama... Auburn won, Jack Snipe yelled "War Eagle" into the microphone which caused the drummer to quit the band, he being an Alabama fan. Out of Loyalty (to the drummer, not me!) the bass player and Patricia the tambourinist quit the band. Leaving Jack Snipe and Robbie Wright (and always loyal Brian Mallard) to stay with me, where we've gone on to make some of our best music ever: Check out "Rock-N-Roll Night (The Video) / Will Dockery & The Shadowville All-Stars" - http://www.reverbn ation.com/open_gra ph/video/12904748 Not sure what the tambourine player, drummer or bassist are up to these days, exactly, since I don't see either much if I can help it... I do know that their spin-off group idea didn't last more than a few days, though.  (Wednesday Jul 16 | post #24149)

The Rolling Stones

Rolling Stones in Auburn AL, Nov. 14th 1969

The Rolling Stones in Auburn Alabama, November 14th 1969 Thanks to Google Books, I found the story about Chuck Berry in the Columbus-Phenix City area, in 1969. He was opening act for The Rolling Stones, who had a show in Auburn Alabama. This was revealed briefly in Stanley Booth's book on The Stones, " The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones", starting around page 186: "...In Atlanta we rented a car... heading down to Auburn... past pine woods and rolling Georgia fields. "Looks very much like Scotland, very pleasant." Stu said. Boy as we went deeper into the country, passing signs ---Don't lose your soul to the mark of the beast, Jesus will save U--- Mo-Jo gas stations, and tarpaper shanties [...] I was driving 90 miles an hour through the Alabama backwoods but the sky had turned black by the time we reached Auburn, and it had begun to snow [...] I would be staying in Columbus that night, and the others would be flying to Illinois. The Dickinsons and I sat in the car of the parking lot and smoked [...] They had come in with Chuck Berry because they happened to be staying in the same motel as Berry in Columbus and they knocked on Berry's door to ask if I was there [...] he did agree to take the Dickinsons to the show if they would guide him there. They had to stop for directions only once. "One of you Caucasians better do the asking," Berry said at an Alabama gas station. [...] The first show had been late and the second show was already so late that Terry Reid was cancelled. The Auburn Special Events people were upset because the coeds had to be in their dorms by midnight. The girls were not groupies or even fans, just coeds with Friday night dates, and the reason there were not more of them was that a lot of the boys were saving money to take them to the big football game tomorrow night. [...] ...on the phone with some higher authority, made the announcement that the Auburn coeds had been granted what he called "When-over permission" meaning they could stay out until the concert was over. "While the Rolling Stones are getting ready to come out, let's hear a great Auburn cheer," Jett said, leading the crowd in a crescendo: "Warrr-EAGLE! " [...] The Stones' 2nd set, they were looser and warmer and the audience, War eagles or not, were warmer too. [...] The lights came up for the last three songs [...] "It might happen," Mick said, "even in the streets of Auburn--- Everywhere I hear the sound of marchin', chargin feet, boys..."

Hello Flower... we are in the summer here, no doubt there... Here's what I was doing catch-up research on last night, which is some pretty good reading I think, the night the Rolling Stones came to our area, the first and only time I know of: The Rolling Stones in Auburn Alabama, November 14th 1969 Poster: http://www.theware aglereader.com/201 1/04/flyer-for-196 9-rolling-stones-c oncert-in-auburn-a ppraised-for-5000- on-antiques-roadsh ow/ Thanks to Google Books, I found the story about Chuck Berry in the Columbus-Phenix City area, in 1969.

M*A*S*H

lost episode

Matthew, I sent your question to the Google Group for M*A*S*H so you could be getting an answer soon!  (Friday Jul 11 | post #3)

M*A*S*H

M*A*S*H Goes To Miami

About every six months or so I seem to find another title in the M*A*S*H paperback series of the 1970s, goofy little novels based very loosely on the M*A*S*H cast, written by the creator Richard Hooker, or at least credited to him as aco-author with William Butterworth. With the author of the original M*A*S*H involved, these are sort of "canon" in a way, although as part of some wild alternate universe from the TV series, which had AfterM*A*S*H and Trapper John, MD... these books started with the very good M*A*S*H Goes To Maine and soon took the characters all over the world to different cities, this time, Miami, as in "M*A*S*H Goes To Miami" Reading the back cover copy, I see the dentist Painless Polack is involved in this one. Shamelessly parlaying on both the television series (listing the actor of the 1976 season on the back cover, as if they had anything to do with this) and on the front cover using the icon from the film the "peace sign" fingers and lady's legs photoshop, with the Army helmet on one of the fingers. Goofy as they are, I'm always pleased to find one of these, and are fairly good reads, more-or-less... and of course quite rare, having been out of print for several decades now, with very little chance of them being reprinted, no doubt. Mikael Uhlin wrote: 12/5/98 Did you know that in the "M*A*S*H Goes To..." - novels by Richard Hooker and William Butterworth, Blake wasn't killed at all? "M*A*S*H Goes To San Fransisco" says that "despite irresponsible reports to the contrary from people who would have known better had they been able to read words of more than one syllable, survived the Korean War and achieved high rank". He's now Major General Henry Blake, Medical Corps, U.S. Army, commanding general of Walter Reed Army Medical Center. HAWKEYE is married to Mary and got three children: Billy, Stephen and Karen. He worked for a while in East Orange, New Jersey, but then returned to Maine, where he started to work at Spruce Harbor General Hospital. Together with his old friends from Korea, he also opened Finestkind Clinic and Fishmarket. TRAPPER was sent to Okinawa after the truce and then worked at Saint Lombard's in New York. Trapper finally joined the others in Spruce Harbor and soon fell in love with Hawkeye's secretary Lucinda and later married her. HOT LIPS After retiring from the Army Margaret was briefly married to, and widowed by, Mr. Isadore Wachauf, Chairman of the Board of Wachauf Metal Recycling, International(form erly Izzy's Junkyard). Margaret then went to San Marcos in Brazil as a chief nurse of a mission hospital, the Green Inferno Christian Medical Missionary Hospital. She went to New Orleans in connection with mission business and met the Reverend Buck Wilson, founder of the God-Is-Love-In-All -Forms Christian Church Inc. After a whirlwind courtship Hot Lips married Reverend Wilson. He expired on the nuptial couch on their wedding day, apparently of a heart seizure brought on by overexertion. Margaret Houlihan Wachauf Wilson is now acting as Mother Emeritus of the God-Is-Love-In-All -Forms Christian Church Inc. FRANK Francis Burns, M.D., lives in Hillandale, Ohio, with his wife Louise and kids. He left the practice of pediatric medicine and founded the Burns Vasectomological Institute and also runs The Burns Loving Family and Zero Population Growth Clinic. MULCAHY His Eminence John Patrick Mulcahy has become titular Archbishop of Swengchan (China). RADAR is called J.Robespierre O'Reilly in the "M*A*S*H Goes To..."-novels and has started an international fast-food service operation (Mother O'Reilly's Irish Stew Parlors). In "M*A*S*H Goes To Las Vegas", Radar marries Kristina Korsky-Rimsakov,a telepath.  (Friday Jul 11 | post #1)

Best music bet of the weekend has to be: Friday night 8:00pm - 11:00pm Starts in about 16 hours 71F Scattered Clouds 280 Bar & Grill Phenix City, Alabama 36867 "We've got a great band put together featuring Jesse Shelby of Fellas and the Vine and Gini Woolfolk Davidson & John Phillips of the Bibb City Ramblers and the Shady Branches. With a band full of multi-instrumental ists (musos) deeply rooted in blues, rock, americana, and everything oozing soul, this will be a night to remember at the 280 Bar and Grill in Phenix City, AL..."

For Dear FlowerChild

Belated happy 4th to you, Flower, and some interesting reading, a local poet made good... Columbus Georgia performance poet gains national fame (Story by Mark Rice) ======[Begin_Quote d_Text]=========== ================== "Columbus Georgia performance poet gains national fame... Chiara Richardson feels she was born to be known for her performance poetry - "God makes me a message that he wants to send to people," she said, "and I'm just a vessel. The nation will see and hear Richardson, a Columbus native and 1999 Shaw High School graduate, deliver one of those messages when she appears this fall on an episode of "Verses and Flow" on TV One. Richardson is among the 24 poets selected for the show's fourth season [...] "Chiara is very to-the-point in her approach to writing... There is no fluff, just a well-constructed story. She is definitely a product of Southern hip-hop. Audiences can certainly hear and enjoy the influences of great rap ensembles like Goodie Mob and Outkast in her work. She is truly a lyricist that knows where she is from and doesn't mind offering up some Southern hospitality on the mic." "Verses and Flow" is a 30-minute variety show, not a contest. Richardson's episode was filmed in front of a live audience at Siren Studios on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. She said she will be in one of this season's eight episodes, starting this fall, but she doesn't know when it will air. ============[End_Q uoted_Text]======= ================== ======== This is the first I've heard of it but I think it is excellent news!  (Thursday Jul 10 | post #24132)
