Rock

DOUG THE THUG SEZ:
SAY IT ISN’T SO! Mick Novak is DONE rockin’ after nine years. I had always wanted to sub a Girl Gone Rockin’ show but it never was to be. Whenever I subbed a show I always tried to include a Girl Gone Rockin’ arc of songs but tonight I get the WHOLE SHOW! All the classics from the last nine years plus some songs that may not have ever been played on that show.
For this show we engaged the KFAI CREATIVE LAB to rewrite or do a cover of Ruth Brown’s “This Little Girl’s Gone Rocking” that Mick used as a theme song. The new arrangement pays tribute to Mick and the two versions of the song will serve as an example of some of the things the the KFAI CREATIVE LAB can do for other programmers and the station as a whole. If you would like to get involved in this project contributing your talents in any way or to learn music and program production (and video production) please shoot me an email at doug@dougthethug.com
If you would like a commemorative poster of the show, go to my website and steal it.

Heck, if I take a dirt nap think of how valuable it will be! hee hee.

Seize Singer Trying to Race Police Car

VENTURA, Calif. (AP) Police said western singer Johnny Cash told them he stepped on the gas when he saw a patrolman coming up behind him because:

I just wanted to find out if I could still outrun a police car.

After a six-mile chase up a freeway, officers said, he discovered he couldn’t.

Cash, 31, was cited Thursday for speeding and driving without having his operator’s license with him.

An officer said he saw Cash speeding and gave chase but the singer tried to pull away. Police said their car and a highway patrol cruiser that joined the chase, had to go 90 miles an hour to catch him.
