Some crazy times. Jason was a ‘born again’ in Texas last I knew. What’s up, not counting the world we live in now. Best-Kim

    • Hey Kim,
      “The Traveling Nobody’s…Yeah Baby! I too recall those days often and I agree GREAT TIMES! I haven’t talked with Steve Moir in rears, Unfortunately! Life for me is pretty damn great except for the Fall out from this virus! Geeeze I’m do bored! How about you?

  2. Stayin’ by Bobby Vee aka Robert Thomas Velline
    Rubber Ball
    Take Good Care of My Baby
    Devil or Angel
    Because Bobby sounded so much like Buddy Holly ( and was from nearby Fargo ND) he was recruited to replace Buddy Holly at the Winter Dance Party in Morehead MN after Buddy’s untimely death in a plane crash.
    btw- Bobby had an unusual guitarist in his band. A young Bobby Zimmerman (we know how he turned out) xo

      • Hey John, we wondered where the in went?
        btw, is there any truth to the rumor that Bobby Vee bought a hotel with his earning’s from “Stayin In”” He, of course, called the hotel “Bobby Vee’s “Stayin’ In Inn”
        I think that’s how the story goes!
        All my best…

    • Hey John,
      Great to see you and yeah quite an unusual pairing Bobby and “Elston Gunn” ( The name Mr. Zimmerman adopted in those times!
      And here’s a bit more insight to the unusual collaboration…. Elston actually played piano in Bobby V’s band AND he could only play in the key of “C” go figure?
      Always great when you drop by!

  3. Stayin’ In, Written by John D. Loudermilk. Great rhyme “He was sayin’ things that not true about her. So I let him have it in the cafeteri(er).”

    • Hey Billy,
      I’m with you! One of those rhyme’s that you looked forward to each time the song came on the radio!….. Great rhyme from a great songwriter. John D. Loudermilk rules!
      Thanx Billy G.

    • Hey Ed,
      First in with all the right answer’s! Obviously you ain’t gonna let no stinkin virus slow you down!
      Stay healthy!
