Current Music:Jim Ladd on KLOS … ranting.
“What are you doing about it?”
Nothing. and that answer makes me feel… hollow. old. sad. The easy reply is what can I do?
Jim Ladd rocks on KLOS in LA – 95.5 – the rocking Oldies channel – you know, they play Van Halen circa 1984, and you can intimate that there’s a new VH albumn for sale – probably won’t hear the new single, but they keep the echos of the great old days playing loud.
Jim gets a slot – 8p – 1a, to play ‘freeform rock and roll’ – he takes requests. He’s ranting on how King George will be enjoying his cooked goose this holiday season, people’s sons and daughters are stuck in Iraq – how would you feel if it was your son? your brother? your father? he asks (yes – he misses one of the sexes)
Great crisis and great need, a great leader will appear. “America is waking up” – seques into CCR Fortunate Son.
Yeah, he’s cranky. He speaks his mind. I like that. Kinda like Henry… he was on Roger Water’s Radio Kaos – an album that puts tingles up my spine – White wolf? So much information while hiding in a hole? damn… but I”m sure those are of things not related – but still, sometimes it’s spooky…
What am I doing about it… good question.
