Yep, folks..celebrated the big 38(!) yesterday (10/9) with Marcey, her sister Rochelle and a friend with pizza, spirits and music talk. I know I haven't been out here much but I will try to visit as much as possible.

Happy Birthday KevGo. Happy to know how far you've come.

Whenever I think of your birth year, 1966, I think of my departed son. He would have been 38 on Feb 26th of this year. THANK YOU for having a good life. God Bless you.

Happy Birthday KevGo,

38??? Way to make a guy feel real old. Man, I have baseball cards & records that are older than you. Now I feel ancient & I'm only a few years older than you :-(

Seriously, I'm glad that you enjoyed your birthday. May God grant you many more years of health, happiness & prosperity!

Kevin - in 1966, I was hanging around the A&P market at Bulls Heads Plaza where my boyfriend at the time worked bagging groceries. We'd then go to Broadway Lunch on Brown Street and pump dimes in the juke box listening to that fabulous music we all love so much. Were you born here or did you transplant to Rochester?

Glad you enjoyed your birthday. You're just a kid! You've got a long way to go. Enjoy it as you go along. Don't wait for some nebulous future. Life is now! I remember 38! That's when I started going to art school to change careers! I can't remember 5 minutes ago, but 30+ years ago is as clear as yesterday!

Folks:
Thanks so much for the kind words. Your friendship here on the Forum means so much to me. I can't wait to visit NYC so I can finally rescue my record collection from storage (sorry....only having a few soul CDs ain't working for me out here in Wisconsin!) and really get back into the groove.

Linda Di:
My family emigrated from Pittsburgh PA in 1965 to Leroy, NY so that my father could attend Colgate Rochester Divinity School (he earned two masters degrees from the seminary). I was born a year later at Genesee Memorial Hospital in Batavia NY. After my Dad earned his first masters degree (1969) we moved to Mulberry Street in Rochster (near Highland Park), where we all resided until Mom sold the house last year and moved to Michigan.

Memories of Rochester:
The Cinema Theatre
Gerako's Diner (the predecessor to the Imperial Chinese Restaurant)
Jay's Record Ranch in Downtown Rochester (as well as Midtown Record & Tape Center, which is now Record Theatre)
WBBF, WAXC and the early years of WDKX radio
The Highland Park Lilac Festival
Free concerts at the Highland Park Bowl (saw Sarah Vaughan in 1979 - what a show!)
Downtown Rochester at Christmastime (the monorail inside Midtown Plaza was the bomb!)
Neisner's Department Store (where a pizza slice and soda combo was one dollar!)
The Fantasy Shop comic book store
Doing school musicals at Monroe High School
Meeting Donny Hathaway at SUNY Brockport (he gave a concert in 1971 - my brother Jesse was the emcee).
Hearing every Chuck Mangione record known to man before it was released!!!

Kevin, I would take the No. 7 bus from Irondequoit and go downtown to Neisners and look at the cute boys -- early 1960s! After my 25 cent nourishment, I'd go to Jay's Record Ranch and play all the Motown 45s. Oh the good ol' days.

Lynn:
Hold onto the CD! Next time I'm in Detroit I'll autograph it for ya!

Bobby:
Thanks, bro. Glad to hear you're doing well. I'll email my phone number so we could talk.

Linda Di:
Ahhh...the good ol' No. 7 bus. I believe that was the same bus I would take to go to Seabreeze amusement park. And yes, my sisters & I bought several Motown 45s at Jay's Record Ranch (and other great singles). Here are just a few (and yes I still have them!) -
"What's Going On", "Mercy Mercy Me", "Inner City Blues" - Marvin Gaye (why my sister just didn't buy the album always stumped me....)
"Ain't No Sunshine", "Grandma's Hands", "Lean On Me", "Use Me" - Bill Withers (once again, big sister skips by the album section...)
"Love's Lines, Angles & Rhymes" - Fifth Dimension
"Ben" - Michael Jackson
"Honky Tonk" (Part 1 & 2) - James Brown's Soul Train (single release on Polydor)
"Hot Pants" - James Brown

Kevin, LPs were $1.98 for mono and $2.98 for stereo! Being poor folk, it was tough enough to beg the money from my dad, so I got the mono versions WHEN I could get them. My first motivation to work was to buy records.

I know I'm lated on the Birthday tip. But anyway hope it was a good one for you. Any day is a good day just to be alive, right?

So Kev....I just happened to be looking at some liner notes on a EWF compilation and....is that you? I am really trippin! I keep telling my peeps about the different well known folk that post in this forum. Some of them just look at me as if to say "yeah, sure." Of course, their not the music historian that I consider myself. A lot of them probably feel like I think I'm mister know it all when it comes to that. That ever happen to you? Well, I'm not mister Know it all and I enjoy learning from you and others on this forum.

Peace
RAB

Richard:
I co-wrote the liner notes for Earth Wind & Fire's Greatest Hits collection Columbia Records released in 1998 (blue cover with the pyramid/alpha/omega symbols). It was a joy and privilege to work on that project and I thank compilation producer Leo Sacks and marketing director Joy Gilbert for the opportunity.

Common:
PLEASE email me again! I'll tell you why your email didn't go through.
