Another week, another hero lost. During the second hour of this edition of the Rockhouse we honor the memory of General Norman Johnson, who passed away a week ago. Johnson was the voice behind the Showmen’s anthem It Will Stand and also the early 70’s mega-hit by the Chairmen Of The Board, Give Me Just A Little More Time. In addition he was a masterful songwriter. We listen to music from all these phases of his career.
