SOMETIMES I HAVE TO WONDER...
MARCH 31, 2013 Thanks to so many of you who reminded me it was two years ago today that my show ended on XM. And thanks to those who pushed me to update the site. It's been an interesting six months since I last wrote, which is an understatement in many ways. I'll get to that, but first I'll answer what's probably why you're reading: Yes, I'm going to be doing the show again.
Since I last wrote, Steven B. Williams' sister, Jan, passed away. (You'll sadly remember that Steven B., my closest friend, and show announcer, was murdered in 2006.) A week before Jan died I visited her in the hospital near Knoxville, TN. Since she was dealing with the end stage of ALS, they weren't treating her for pneumonia. They also weren't bothering to mention it to her visitors who, like me, embraced her. I was down for almost two months. David Adair (remember David? The kid who built the rocket, one of my most requested interviews) was there with me. (He got sick too, but fortunately he recovered more quickly.)
David was a big help to Jan at the end of her life and is now serving as the executor of her estate. Meanwhile, Harvey Morrow, the man convicted of Steven's murder filed an appeal of his conviction. As is the law, a three judge panel heard it last week. I have no idea when they'll rule, but I'd be beyond surprised if they rule in his favor.
About the time I began to feel back to whatever it is that's normal for me, I came down with the worst bout of food poisoning I've had in decades. As Jon at the same thing (don't ask), he shared every bit of my misery. That saga took another month.
I'm mentioning this so you'll easily understand how much time I had to listen to the radio since my last update. What amazed me, is how little of it I wanted to hear, and how much online listening I was doing. My wifi radio was on, virtually 24-7. (I'm still not sure about the content of the dreams I had when I fell asleep listening to Alex Jones, or for that matter, some of the guests on the Art Bell replays [fineartstream.com] but the Beach Music and Northern Soul was assuredly a comfort.)
