SLEEPY JEAN IS VERY SAD, R.I.P. DAVY JONES

Yes I have this song on my iPod and this one and this one

 

Sad news today hearing that Davy Jones of The Monkees has passed away of a heart attack at the age of 66. In 1966 I was 8 years old when The Monkees were formed as a band and a TV show, and I was a huge fan. Back then Top 40 radio was the rage and WABC with their All American’s and WMCA “Good Guys” (I’ve talked about this before but I wanted one of those yellow Good Guy sweatshirts soooooooo badly) bringing a an explosion of music from the Beatles, Stones and the British Invasion and James Brown, The Supremes with Motown, then here come four prefabricate guys from central casting, thrown together with a few pop songs and guess what? They were a huge success.

“GOOD-BYE, LUV” RON LUNDY 1935-2010

If you are under 45 years old, you probably have no idea who Ron Lundy is. Lundy, one the great voices of 77 Music Radio WABC a radio station that just screams of summertime, school yards and stick ball games of my youth, whose signature open was “Hello Luv, From The Greatest City in the World I’m Ron Lundy” then he’d play a Beatles song, or a Rolling Stones Song, or a Temptations song or a …………well, you get the picture.     

Lundy passed away yesterday at the age of 75, and his death just makes you realize more and more the lack of personality on radio today. What a shame !
