I'm not talkin' about the linen

dansealsOkay...the line was really "I'm not talkin' 'bout movin' in.." from the song "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight," by England Dan and John Ford Coley. I don't know if you've heard the news, but England Dan Seals died yesterday at the age of 61 of cancer. This is sad, not only because of his awesome songs from the '70s, but because I met him in the mid-80's when he was launching his country music career. At that time I worked at a radio station in Stevens Point..and the AM station had a country music format. (WXYQ--you're in 10Q Country).  We ran a contest where the listeners had to guess the number of yellow balloons in a station wagon parked in front of the student union, because Dan Seals had a song out about yellow balloons, I imagine. When the  DJ called the guy who won, he said live on the air, "NO S%#t!"  Classic moment of my radio career, by the way. Any way, he won dinner with Dan Seals. It wasn't in some fancy restaurant, it was actually in the Picadilly Place, a restaurant in the student union. (Not sure that was really the name of the restaurant.) Long story short...I accompanied said listener and got to hang out with Dan Seals too. The main thing I remember is that it was a convergence of 70's pop stars, because another guy who had a hit in the 1970's just happened to be driving through the area, heard Dan Seals on the radio and stopped in. His name was Gene Cotton, and he had a minor hit with "Before My Heart Finds Out." (Although I always thought it was called "Don't Let My Heart Know That You're Leaving") Any way, it was great fun hanging out with Dan and Gene as they caught up on old times.  And then I got to see Dan play country songs including one that caught on, called "Bop." Here's a video of E.D. and  and J.F.C. on Midnight Special doing that "I'm not talking 'bout the linen" song..

The problem with holiday sweaters--and it's not that they're ugly
Holiday sweaters--oh we love to mock them! Ugly holiday sweater parties have become so mainstream that I feel they are no longer ironic. But that's not what I'm going to gripe about. My problem is that ugly holiday sweaters are now becoming...
