The KSHE Klassics Show, May 21st, 2017

Quotation du jour ~ Bob Dylan: The radio makes hideous sounds. 

(For a Nobel Prize winner, Mr Dylan sure has said some dumb shit: today's show was excellent.)

I said two weeks ago that i would be unable to post the playlist for last week, because last Sunday was Mother's Day -- the busiest day of the year in my business -- and i had to work. I was able to listen for about an hour, on my 'phone, but it's such a noisy place it was hardly worth the effort. Or the data. (My work's wi-fi is utter crap and i couldn't connect to the network. I wound up using almost half of my month's data allowance.) (Apparently none of my tech-savvy manglement team knows how to re-boot a router!) I certainly couldn't create a playlist -- although Uman did play Dan Fogelberg's "As The Raven Flies," which made me wish i was at home with a beer and a sausage samwidge. I can't even remember anything else he played.

But here's what he played today:

Russ Ballard -- Rene Didn't Do It

Oh, look, there's Russ Ballard himself. A fairly recent pic, i think. He was the singer in Argent and wrote one of the most dire songs ever, "God Gave Rock 'N' Roll To You" -- i find that most songs written since about 1971 that have the expression "rock 'n' roll" in their titles, have little relation to the genre.
