Catching up

Whew, time to catch up after a crazy-busy coupla weeks. 1st and foremost, thanks to all of the fantastic 107one listeners who pledged $7,740 during last week's Ann Arbor Film Festival fundraiser - this amount exceeded all expectations, and we are thrilled at the support given to the Festival by our listeners!

On the sadder side of things, I had just arrived at the station last Friday (Aug. 4) when I read the news online that Arthur Lee of the crucial 60s rock band Love had died. Love's 3rd album, "Forever Changes," is far and away its best, appearing on many critics' lists as being one of the greatest rock albums ever released. If you haven't heard "Forever Changes," rush out and get a copy - you will be stunned and amazed. I feel so fortunate to have seen and met Arthur Lee a few years ago at the Magic Stick in Detroit when he was on a triumphant comeback tour. His death is a huge loss to music.

Lately I've been listening to as much Love and Arthur Lee music as I can fit in. How 'bout you? Any word on an official rarities collection coming out that may tie up some loose ends? Congrats on your huge ratings by the way!
