The final session of 2016. Rock was sick and Greg had extending
Thanksgiving plans. So Bouncing Bill & Bud held down the fort. It gives
the guys a chance to listen to old bits from the "classic era"
from 1967 to 1973.
A trio for our September 23rd '16
session. We didn't do any comedy
but The Gregarious Greg show was
a lot of fun. Greg returned to an
active DJ (He had just been joining
us for reunions.) When Johnnie
moved back to Colorado the spot
was offered to Greg. He said he'd
join us when he could and it's a
blast to have him back.
The first session of 2017 and the start of the 50th Anniversary year of WTIT. Midnight (far
right) returned for the first time since 2015 at Johnny's farewell show. Bud is to Midnight's
right followed by Rock and Bill (far left). The next session was our 50th Anniversary, which has
its own page on this site.
In the "I Formation", it's
Billy & Bud for our 4th
Tape of 2017, the June
24th session. This was
the first after the 50th
Anniversary show. They
did their best scripted
commercial
for the two
in quite a while
. It was
for a local pawn shop
called "Good Ole Thom's".
In the "I Formation", it's Billy & Bud for
our May 30th 2016 session. They did their
first scripted commercial. It was for a
furniture chain called "Bob's Furniture".
Bud spent two years as an Operations
Manager Seaman's Furniture a similar
operation. Except the "they don't exist
anymore" part...
It just so happened that the session
number of the last recording before
the 50th Anniversary Show was 598.
It seemed fitting to use Tape 600 for
the 50th, so an extra session was
needed. Bill wanted some time with
Johnnie since we hadn't seen him
since his move to Colorado in 2015.
So this extra session, Tape 599
served both purposes. The idea was
to come up with ideas for the party &
anniversary show. We came up with
two ideas, one of which got produced
on the 50th. (Bill left, Johnnie & Bud)
