Thank you for dropping in on my podcasts. I really enjoy your company. The new one is up today. It’s about sitting here in my big, comfortable, black leather poppa chair in my living room trying to figure out how to explain why a guy wants to become a disc jockey, because I have to tell you about a wonderful thing that happened to me. Clint Eastwood understood that guys want to become disc jockeys mainly to get girls. That’s why he loved starring in and directing “Play Misty For Me” all those years ago. If you’re too young to remember, Jessica Walter was the young lovely, purring on the phone… “Dave, please play Misty for me.” Every time the request line rings (it doesn’t actually ring, it lights up), every disc jockey I’ve ever known gets a quick vision of a scantily clad young lovely, slowly flexing her long, tapered legs and licking her lips, just waiting to breathe her request into his ear. There is no other reason for a young guy to want to become a disc jockey. Until you get to the big time, the money stinks. Especially for a late night disc jockey. And the amazing thing is that often the vision of the lady involved is reasonably accurate. Not always, but more often than you might think. Freud

    Just listened to the podcast. Having grown up listening to “The Team” on WBZ in the 1960’s and having had the great luck to have worked with you at WMEX, I can honestly say that no one deserves the honor more. You were a friend when I listened under my pillow. You were a friend when I worked with you. You are a friend now. I will be there Friday – yes, in a coat and tie too. Wouldn’t miss it for the world. Makes you realize that all those times you wondered “is anyone even listening to me?” that yes, they certainly were. Love you, my friend. Congratulations.

    At a time when so many people are just “Facebook Friends” I’d say the fifty years we’ve known each other has proven that you’re the real deal. I can’t wait to see you Friday.
