Casey Kasem would have been 86 today. We lost Casey on June 15, 2014. He was the nicest man I've ever met. I found this interview from 1996. Remember, "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."
Tim Allen will hit the stage at 8:30 PM tonight at the beautiful, historic Fox Theater. The show is SOLD OUT. The show benefits Forgotton Harvest. We're old friends and Tim stopped by after sound check
Forgotten Harvest is a non-profit food rescue organization that collects food that would otherwise go to waste and delivers it free of charge to organizations feeding the hungry in Metro Detroit.
Steve Miller and Peter Frampton will start their tour tonight in Kelowna, BC Canada. Steve Miller and Peter Frampton will be in our area on June 17th at DTE – Pine Knob. Steve Miller has sold over 60 million albums and Peter Frampton has arguably one of the most successful live releases ever. Both artists are incredibly friendly guys. I caught with both separately about 6 years ago.
Alice Cooper tweeted out this morning that the single “No More Mister Nice Guy” was released 45 years ago this month from the album “Billion Dollar Babies” I’ve known Alice Cooper for a long time. On December 15, 2010 Alice Cooper was finally elected in to the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame. The original band Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway and Neil Smith all performed. I caught up with Coop the day after he found out he was finally elected to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
I found this lost classic from Paul Stanley of KISS. It’s from 1996. The year KISS kicked of a 16-month reunion tour (Alive Worldwide) after a multi-year layoff. I was at News/Talk 760 WJR and I was always concerned that the Program Director wasn’t a big fan of my doing a rock and roll interview on a news talk radio station. This massive KISS world tour kicked-off in Detroit at Tiger stadium in front of over 50,000 fans. The concert sold out in 40 minutes! The tour banked 148 million...
It’s Sunday, and a good day to continue to share these lost classics with you. Today I’m featuring Milton Berle. What a treat it was to grab this one. We recorded it in 1996…and found it in near perfect condition! We were talking about George Burns turning 100 and his big party being just days away. We also talk about Detroit. We did not discuss his Rumored Endowment. Google it!
Adam Sandler is making the rounds to promote two new Netflix productions. One is “Adam Sandler’s Comedy Special This Year (Maybe)” and a comedy film called “The Week Of” starring Adam Sandler, Allison Strong, Chris Rock and Steve Buscemi. I caught up with Adam Sandler a number of times, but I discovered this ‘Lost Classic’ in my archives. Check it out. Thanks, and enjoy!
