    okay----several months ago, in was in some place & hear over the PA a record I hadn't heard in awhile, tho i have it around here on a 45. yup. it's from about 1986 or 7, and called "Digging Your Scene". So, yeah--i went home and watched the Video, which was very entertaining. it's this guy Dr Robert & his band, he calls The Blow Monkeys. Well, even though i just like the music, i think what their thing was, to imitate/emulate the likes of Dave Bowie, and they do it pretty well. But yeah, I'll remember to listen to it, once in awhile. thankk mee.

    okay---one more thing about that particular video. maybe two. Dr Robert & his bow monkeys(ha), including the awesome sax player, have appeared live & in person at various outdoor concerts in the last several decades. but guess what? they kinda lack the polish of that old video from 1986. yup. so, no way would i pay umpteen hundred bucks to see them, now. So anyway--another sad fact--the enthusiastic gem of a fan in the video(see photo) musta been 65 or 70 back then; so yeah--i just assume she's departed, by now, or else the oldest person in England.2024-06-03 (3).jpg

    I was recently reminded of a song from a high point in the movie Apollo 11 and in real life was on their tape mix as they returned to earth. John Steward was a favorite back in the day. He played with the Kingston Trio and later a solo career as something of a folk/rock singer. "Mother Country".

    okay---yes, yes, rogar---john stewart & stevies nicks recorded the rock ballad "Gold" which sounded pretty good once you heard it a few times, even though it shouldn't have. if, i'm thinking of the "john steward" you mentioned. yup.

    Good one. He's the John Stewart one and the same. He had a few minor hits.

    okay---then there's the British group from ca. 1990 called The Sundays. They had an album that sold well, but were kinda one-hit-wonders. but, that' okay. the song was: "Here's Where The Story Ends" yup.
