Actually a Frankie Black wannabee.

To remind us how hard it is to kill thousands of innocent men women and children.

This Sunday at 4 PM on the "Sound of Surprise" Jazz radio program I will feature an hour long tribute to Anita O'Day-KWVA-FM 88.1 Eugene www.kwvaradio.org
This program is now archived and available for your listening pleasure HERE.
From Today's Papers:
Renowned jazz singer Anita O'Day dies
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Anita O'Day, whose sassy renditions of "Honeysuckle Rose," "Sweet Georgia Brown" and other song standards that made her one of the most respected jazz vocalists of the 1940s and '50s, has died. She was 87.
O'Day died in her sleep early Thursday morning at a convalescent hospital in Los Angeles where she was recovering from a bout with pneumonia, said her manager Robbie Cavolina.
"On Tuesday night, she said to me, get me out of here," Cavolina said. "But it didn't happen."
Once known as the "Jezebel of Jazz" for her reckless, drug-induced lifestyle, O'Day lived to sing and she did so from her teen years until this year when she released "Indestructible!"
"All I ever wanted to do is perform," she said in a June 1999 interview with The Associated Press. "When I'm singing, I'm happy. I'm doing what I can do and this is my contribution to life."
Cavolina recently completed a feature film about O'Day and accompanied her to shows and on tours.
"She got to see how many people really loved her at the shows we did, in New York, in London," Cavolina said. "She had come back after all of this time. She really lived a very full and exciting life.
O'Day was born in Chicago, Ill. She left home at age 12 and often bragged about being "self-made" and never having a singing lesson.
She began her career in her teens and later recorded hits with Stan Kenton and Gene Krupa. Her highly stylized performance of songs like "And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine," "Let Me Off Uptown," "Honeysuckle Rose" and "Sweet Georgia Brown" made her famous the world over.
In her prime, O'Day was described as a scat singer and a natural improviser whose unique interpretations energized the most familiar songs. She inspired many singers, including June Christy and Chris Connor.
Her fame came at a price.
She suffered from a 16-year heroin addiction and an even longer alcohol problem. Wild, drug-related behavior and occasional stints in jail on drug charges earned her the nickname "Jezebel of Jazz," a term she hated.
"I tried everything," she once said. "Curiosity will make you go your own way."She overdosed many times and on one occasion in the late 1940s, it was almost fatal.The experience shocked her into giving up drugs, but she continued to drink.
Her 1981 memoir "High Times Hard Times" tells of her long struggle with drug addiction and her romance with drummer John Poole.
In late 1996, O'Day fell down the stairs of her Hemet, Calif., home after a drinking binge. She was admitted to a hospital with a broken arm but ended up with severe food poisoning and pneumonia.
She survived the ordeal but her recovery - both physical and emotional - was painful. She left the hospital in a wheelchair and didn't walk for nearly a year. Her right hand was paralyzed but worst of all, she said, she had lost her singing voice.
Although she blamed the complications on poor hospital care, the near-death experience convinced O'Day to give up alcohol.
It took nearly a year to get her voice back and start singing again. But once she did, she was right back on stage.
She received a lifetime achievement award from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1997.
For the last years of her life, O'Day performed at various Los Angeles night spots.
O'Day had no children and no immediate family, Cavolina said.

This happened in 2004-whoever wins the Weekly Award disappears from the airwaves shortly afterward!Fortunately(or unfortunately)you still have last year's winner Marc Time to kick around.(and Vinnie and Icky)
What did her in?Was it her calls for impeachment?Her objection to 20 minutes of commercials and weather per hour?Her emphasis on gay rights?The Weekly article keeps it deliberately cryptic.
Oh well- so goes the dumb ass radio industry. Good Luck in Taos Nancy!
"Popular local progressive radio talk show host Nancy Stapp of "Breakfast With Nancy" has left the airwaves of Air America-affiliate KOPT 1600 AM radio following a rumored dispute with station management over editorial content and control. Stapp was recently honored with the EW Best of Eugene Award for "Best Local Radio Show or Host."
Station owners John Musumeci and Suzanne Arlie deferred comment on the reasons for the breakup to Churchill Media and KOPT Program Director Liz Kelly. Kelly, in a press release Nov. 10 said, "We are saddened to announce that morning show host Nancy Stapp has left KOPT. … We appreciate Nancy's contribution to our community and our organization as the morning show host on KOPT over the past year. While we are sorry to see her leave Eugene, we wish Nancy the best in her future endeavors as she returns to Taos, New Mexico."
Stapp was also reluctant to talk about why she left the station so abruptly. "What I can say," she said, "is that the folks in Eugene are very intelligent, engaged people and they will draw their own conclusions. In life and not just in work, I find that people definitely judge you by your actions rather than your intentions, and my hope is that people will look at the work that I've done and the work that we were able to do. And when I mean 'we' I really mean this community, because I'm nothing without the voices that I was able to bring on the air."
She will be taking her old job as morning talk show host at the solar-powered KTAO radio (www.ktao.com) in Taos. She was at the station previously for 10 years, and has known station owner and DJ Brian Hockmeyer for 28 years. When asked if she would like to stay in Eugene, she said she loves Eugene, but she signed a non-compete agreement with Churchill Media, and talk radio is what she does best.
Taking her place on the KOPT morning slot is Brian Shaw, who recently left Diamond Peak Media's SUCCESS FM radio. — Ted Taylor"

Tonight George Macaca Allen conceded the Virginia Senate race. This means that the Dems have won control of the Senate 51-49. This has been an overwhelming mandate and a sign that things will be blue for a while.
Whether or not you vote or aren't crazy about the Democrats this has been an overwhelming tidal wave of hope for the future.
Don't piss on my parade-join me in an early thanksgiving.
Much more exciting than Dance with the Stars or the freakin Ducks.
2008 is gonna be a good year.

The following is an edited article from a previous Eugene Weekly:
Eileen Polk's punk photography on display.
BY VANESSA SALVIA
Eileen Polk, a New York native and Eugene resident who documented the late '70s punk scene in New York City through her camera lens, will open a gallery show at Feinstein's Museum of Unfine Art on Friday, Nov 3.
Polk was a New York teenager in the late seventies and befriended many of the performers and individuals who created and nurtured the punk scene, including The Ramones, Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, Frank Zappa and many others.
Polk always had her camera with her when she went to a party or show, and consequently was able to get candid shots. "I was like a fly on the wall – I had my camera on so much that no one even thought about it," she says. "It was like, 'Oh, there she is again.'"
Though she did make attempts to photograph professionally for magazines, Polk's intention morphed to just creating a "personal archive." Getting paid to shoot wasn't as important as simply documenting the many interesting lives and events she encountered. The people she photographed accepted her and her camera's presence because she was a part of the scene, not a journalist trying to infiltrate the community.
Polk was among the last few people to see Sid Vicious on the night of his death, and knows firsthand how the media can sensationalize and distort celebrity lives. She enjoys presenting a truthful view of the people she photographs. "I like to show people the way they are, even if they're not being politically correct," she says.
Her philosophy of photography has always been "to take pictures of things that would otherwise be lost to history. My photos are kind of like a visual anthropology."
Among the photos she plans to have on display are shots of Dee Dee and Joey Ramone, two personal friends of Polk's who have since passed away. She also has shots of Cherry Poppin' Daddies‚ frontman Steve Perry, local politician Pete Sorenson, even Jesse Jackson. Prints of photos in her extensive collection will be available for purchase. Polk's photographs are hanging in the gallery at 537 Willamette through November 30.

I thought today's radio show went pretty smooth, although it was an overworked corny concept. Playing RAIN songs while it's raining. Part 2 was all about food and I thought it was really funny.
What wasn't funny was that there was a "Meet the Candidates" brunch at a cafe in Junction City with State Senate candidate Vicki Walker, Judicial candidate Debra Vogt, Mayoral candidates Bev Ficek and Mayor Larry Crowley, and all of the city council candidates.
My wife Barb and I were the only voters that showed up. And we have already voted!
What a sad state of affairs where folks are more interested in the Ducks and Beavers games and Dancing with the Stars .
Nevertheless we had a great time and I think that Vicki and Bev are real sweeties.

Yup. I said CHRISTmas. I used the C word. In this PC climate of Eugene left coast manners it is no longer appropriate to say "Merry Christmas" -now it is "Happy Holodays". Example:when I went to the Weekly to list my September Christmas show and they called it a "Holiday" show.
Now before you stick me in with Bill O'Reilly and Rush I DO NOT BELIEVE there is a war on Christmas.It just seems that everyone has gone gaga over Halloween this year. Halloween songs all over the radio. Parties and costumes galour.A LOT more hoopla than I remember from last Xmas.
Is it because we have to set the clocks back? Is it because after tonight's celebrations, the rain and cold and darkness comes down on us like a dark curtain?
The pagan holiday of Christmas/Winter Solstice meant it was time to hunker down for a miserable winter. But now, especially with our world weary tatooed youth, the goal post has been moved up to late October.
Hopefully Satan hasn't replaced the Christ child. But in an age when the politician elders line up in lockstep behind cruel and materialistic leaders,it makes sense that what used to be GOOD is now EVIL.When things couldn't get much worse in our national psyche, it makes sense that the Goblins and Ghouls have replaced the good guys.
Happy Halloween and God bless.Party on.
And Bah Humbug.

JIMI HENDRIX: BAND OF GYPSIES: Atlanta International Pop Festival –
July 4th, 1970 Peach County Raceway, Byron, Georgia
July 4, 1970 was an unbearable 115-degree day that caused performances in the second annual Atlanta International Pop Festival to be delayed until late that evening. Jimi Hendrix was scheduled for the prime slot that afternoon, but instead went on after midnight. A crowd of 500,000 awaited him that evening, the largest crowd of his career. Jimi chose to perform this show with little theatrics. His focus was solely on the music-- and the music it was! One of very few concerts known to exist by the legendary Band of Gypsies (and easily one of the rarest), this is the finest example of the Gypsies as led by young master Hendrix. In memory of the genius who continues to inspire artists today, the music contained in this film transcends the boundaries of what is known as rock.
• Encore: Band of Gypsies, Fillmore East footage, New Years Eve, 1969
(Approx. 1 hr. 30min. total)
November 17. 18. 19
August 8, 1970 – San Tropez, France
April 29, 1970 – KQED, San Francisco “An Hour with Pink Floyd” (PBS)
Seen Live at Pompeii? Now, come see it’s closest living relatives! Two highly significant gems in the Pink Floyd annals, these two concerts document the band before hitting superstardom. The era between 1969 to 1972 epitomizes the height of Pink Floyd’s early career, characterized by collective improvisation, electronic experimentation and introspective soundscapes. These living films--bold, intriguing and mysterious--provide critical new insights into the largely forgotten era that is (in this case), Atom Heart Mother. Celebrating nearly 40 years since the inception of their first album in 1967, Piper at the Gates of Dawn, you (and your central nervous system) will witness why Pink Floyd is “the first band in space”.

If you wanna know what to expect, here's how it progresses.
Dizziness-sleepyness-slight tickle in throat-runny nose-stuffed up nose-sneezing-violent sneezing-coughing-congestion in nose moving into congestion in lungs moving to a feeling that you want to die.
I hope you don't get it but if you want to be prepared go out today and get nose spray, cough drops, aspirin, tea and chicken soup and prepare for the worst.

From the new Bob Woodward Book:
"Prince Bandar enjoys easy access to the Oval Office. His family and the Bush family are close. And Woodward told 60 Minutes that Bandar has promised the president that Saudi Arabia will lower oil prices in the months before the election - to ensure the U.S. economy is strong on election day.
Woodward says that Bandar understood that economic conditions were key before a presidential election: “They’re [oil prices] high. And they could go down very quickly. That's the Saudi pledge. Certainly over the summer, or as we get closer to the election, they could increase production several million barrels a day and the price would drop significantly.”"

Reuters, The New York Times
Move over Oprah - the Venezuelan president, Hugo Chávez, is calling the literary shots this week. Chávez made headlines for his United Nations speech on Wednesday calling President George W. Bush "the devil himself," but a reading suggestion he made in the same speech created a best-seller.
Chávez began his UN speech by displaying a copy of the U.S. writer Noam Chomsky's book "Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance" and recommended that Americans read it instead of watching Superman and Batman movies, which he said "make people stupid."
By Thursday, the book had risen from backlist obscurity to be the No.3 bestseller on Amazon.com. By Friday, it was No.1. Before the speech, the 2004 book reprinted by Owl Books was being outsold by thousands of other titles on the online bookseller's Web site. Chávez did make one mistake: At a news conference after his UN address, he expressed regret at not having met Chomsky before the linguist's death.
A call to Chomsky's house in Lexington, Massachusetts, found him very much alive. "I continue to work and write," he said. He also said he was struggling through "10,000 e-mails" that he had received since the remarks by Chávez. While retired from teaching full time, Chomsky said he still went to his office at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, occasionally lecturing and also working on a new book.
Chomsky, 77, said that he was glad that Chávez liked his book, but that he not describe himself as flattered. "We should look at ourselves through our own eyes and not other people's eyes," he said.
Chomsky said he had taken no offense at Chávez's remarks about his being dead. It did land him in the exclusive club of luminaries, like Mark Twain, who was reported dead before his time. $@
"The Bush administration backed a coup to overthrow his government," Chomsky said. "Suppose Venezuela supported a military coup that overthrew the government of the United States? Would we think it was a joke?" $@(Reuters, NYT)

To celebrate my new time slot (10 AM till Noon on Sundays!) this week's show will feature a lot of stuff that regular 8-10 listeners have heard but may be new to my recent listeners. I will also be bringing back my Hangover Cures, Celebrity Spotlight and Stupid Record of the Week.
This week's LP I found in McMinville for a buck.It looked like another pleasant piano album from the late 50's and I threw it in my play pile, and didn't get to it for a week.
When I put the needle down what came out was some of the WORST piano playing I have heard in my life! And three tracks in Mr. Edwards decides he's going to let his wife sing and she gives Mrs. Miller a run for her money.
Tonight when I showed the cover to my wife she said "The piano player has TWO RIGHT HANDS!"
Duh- I never noticed till she told me.
Listen in Sunday-you won't believe it.

From U.S. News:
Washington Whispers By Paul Bedard
Animal House in the West Wing
He loves to cuss, gets a jolly when a mountain biker wipes out trying to keep up with him, and now we're learning that the first frat boy loves flatulence jokes. A top insider let that slip when explaining why President Bush is paranoid around women, always worried about his behavior. But he's still a funny, earthy guy who, for example, can't get enough of fart jokes. He's also known to cut a few for laughs, especially when greeting new young aides, but forget about getting people to gas about that.

Ok. I am in a better mood now. Here's my letter:
Regarding your cover story about City Hall, "Doomed To Demo" (8/17), I'd like to add my two cents as someone who works in Eugene and Corvallis.
On one hand you have the city of Corvallis, with a vibrant artistic downtown filled with small businesses and buildings that convey the homey sense of a small town community. Then there's Eugene, filled with concrete structures that bisect the downtown area and loom over empty storefronts. If you don't believe me, go to both towns at Christmas and observe the amount of downtown shoppers.
The writer of the article obviously favors rebuilding these concrete monoliths that are almost 50 years old. Where is the Eugene that once had its main street (Willamette) running from the butte and train station through downtown? Willamette is chopped up by the ugly 1950s-designed Hilton and part of the Hult Center and shaded by concrete parking garages. Surrounding streets are metered for little or no parking, designed to speed any visitor through downtown as fast as possible.
Yes, rebuilding Eugene's currently earthquake-unsafe city center will cost money — but the result can and should be a kinder, gentler, friendlier downtown that serves the people. Other city and county agencies can be incorporated into a new downtown plan — an example is LCARA, which would benefit by having homeless animals available within walking distance to anyone interested in a new friend. Currently one has to drive miles to get to LCARA or Greenhill.
Maybe a police station that doesn't resemble the set of "Dragnet" would help the citizens warm up to those that protect and serve. Perhaps many local businesses could benefit from a new look downtown. Hello? Eugene CAN do it — contrary to the naysayer writer of your cover story.
