Part 2: From Steven's Rock Calendar: 9-17-67 Rock TV Makes History

READ PART ONE: The Doors on Ed Sullivan

After Ed Sullivan, it was time for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour with tonight's special guests, The Who.

As I wrote in my Club Dead blog:

From Steven's Rock Calendar: 9-17-67 Rock TV Makes History (Pt.1).

In September 17th's Rock Calendar on Twitter (not so subtle cross-plug there) I note that this day in 1967 was a pivotal one for rock music and television. On this one night, at a time when rock music on TV was still a rarity, The Doors and The Who each gave performances so memorable that handsome, virile radio people still blog about them some 43 years later.

Encore: Classic Rock and the Eternal Rock

Earlier this week, Alice Cooper reported that Kerry Livgren of Kansas is recovering nicely from a severe stroke. Kerry is a devout Christian, and I'm certain his faith has been instrumental in helping him deal with the struggle.

I mentioned this on the show tonight, and I was reminded of this entry from last Easter, about rockers who have strong-rooted faith.

Bon Jovi injured himself during the band's 2 1/2-hour concert at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford on Friday night. He then limped back on the stage for an encore, "Livin' On A Prayer."

Thanks for missing me

A personal message: Just wanted to let you know I'm back home after spending five days in the hospital. I had some swelling in my legs, and the doctor wanted to drain it off. Sounds a lot more serious than it really is.

I've been procrastinaing about having it done, but I'm glad I fanally went through with it. I hadn't said much about it until I could see how it was going. Good news is that it went well and I'll be back on the air tomorrow night.
