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.
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 August 19, 2017 session. Our spot
spoof this session was "Maxi-Viagrate"
which involved duc tape & popcycle sticks.
We know. You can't beat that. Beware of
splinters. We have two more session
scheduled, but we may be in a new studio
since Bud's house is under contract and
should close in September.
So a new
studio will be "crowned", so to speak.
In
this pick they point to the studio's name
plate
, for its last session, "Studio 33 1/3."
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)
