The Show – Sept 11, 2009 Dave Lamont and Alice Cooper

I don’t know how much or how often I’ll be able to make posts like this since I do start work at 7am Mon-Fri but I’ll see if I can and update the post as the show goes on.

Dave Lamont is back, even if it is just for the day, I’m sure most people appreciate hearing his voice back on the radio.

The interview with Alice Cooper went extremely well. Alice is performing at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater (tickets start at $33). Alice announced that $1 of every ticket will go to the food bank. Alice also commented that even though he loves to play golf, his “character” on stage hates golf. :) There will also be a contest where one person will win the opprotunity to “throw out the balloons” during the concert’s closer, “School’s Out” (which Alice said is the main “party” song). Alice was a great interview, down to earth and he at least tried to be funny.

Ben Bailey from the Cash Cab was on talking about the Cash Cab and his comedy shows. Ben actually had to go to a cab school and get licensed to drive a cab before he could do the show, including a drug test and background check (neither of which he was “prepared’ for). Ben is also appearing at the Improv Comedy Club in Hollywood this weekend. Tickets are still available.

What’s up with the baseball game?

Am I the only one who is really annoyed over the fact that it is all about this weekend’s “Yankees” game? It’s the Marlins damnit! They Yankees just happen to be here.

Or, are they catering to the NY fans who found it cheaper to fly down here, get a hotel room, food, and tickets to the MARLINS game than it is to just buy tickets in NYC? :)

Today in Rock (Apr 3) and Panthers hockey

I highly recommend anyone to go watch a Panthers game. Like I said, the game Tuesday night was incredible (where the Panthers beat the Senators 5-2). We had a great time (good food and the souvenirs are not too badly priced).

Today in Rock:

  • 1939 – Jeff Barry (wrote the song “Leader of the Pack”) was born.
  • 1942 – Wayne Newton was born.
  • 1946 – Dee Murray (Elton John Band) was born.
  • 1955 – Mick Mars (Motley Crew) was born.
  • 1961 – Eddie Murphy was born.
  • 1969 – Jim Morrison turns himself over to the FBI in Los Angeles. Charged with inter-state flight to avoid prosecution on six charges of lewd behavior and public exposure at a concert in Miami on 2 March 1969, he is later released on $2000 bail.

I went to a fight last night and a hockey game broke out. :)

I got to go see the Panthers play (well, beat) the Senators last night (5-2). It was sad to see how empty the arena was – especially since it was a great game. I haven’t been to a hockey game since my college days (UMaine – 1992-1993 season where the Black bears went 42-1-2 – after that just about the entire team got drafted into the NHL). I guess next season my wife and I will have to get some ticket packs.
