    Format nostalgia is amazing. Excuse me while I sharpen some cactus needles.

  6. Did I mention I was writing a doctoral thesis on squat? I might have a sub chapter on schmuck. Please keep me up to date on any developments.

  11. Booker Little

    About 20 years ago I met a fellow, in the Jazz Record Mart, who said he was Booker Little's son. He was very happy to hear I knew of his father.
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

  14. State Farm commercials

    The commercials get the message across.
  15. The last time we lived in Chicago (1975-1983) I attended a number of studio recordings of this show. The studio was 2 blocks from our apartment and our mailman (who I didn't know) dropped tickets in my mailbox when he thought I might be interested. I saw a number of shows and rehearsals. Wanting to refresh my memory I googled the show and only found a few I attended. Does anyone know a way to get a complete list of the programs? If this topic continues I will dredge up memories of the shows. I do know at some point I went to the station and picked up a bunch of 2 inch video tapes to be delivered to the Don DeMichael/Jazz Institute Archive at the University of Chicago Library (or whatever it is called now).
