Where Have All The Rebels Gone?

Mister D: Can’t say I agree with everything Mr. Boehlert says, but to be honest, I was surprised at the complacency and the somewhat “less than energetic” fare that was televised…maybe we’re all suffering from some type of post-traumatic fatique since the events of 9-11…and that effects us all…and maybe, just maybe, sometimes the “rebel” needs a night off…

Just pretend it will all go away

Radio Plans Shift in Tone as Drumbeat of War Builds
By LYNETTE HOLLOWAY

FTBInMyLife.jpgAfter the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, listeners denounced many radio stations for playing songs insensitive to a nation in mourning. Now, program directors are planning to adjust their playlists if the United States goes to war with Iraq.

Expect to hear more patriotic tunes, and songs that appear right for the moment. The changes most likely will occur on stations with the broadest appeal, like those with top 40’s and country formats. Read More

Arif Mardin Up for Best Producer Tonight…Again

Mister D: I know this is an extremely long article, but Mr. Mardin is responsible for some of the best charts and production of many of Bette’s albums, including the songs “From A Distance” and “Wind Beneath My Wings”. Those were just the award winning songs, too. Anyway, I think it’s just good manners to acknowledge the people who helped Ms. Midler along the way… and this is a great article on the history of Mr. Mardin…wish him luck tonight…. Read More

‘Father Of The Grammys’

NEW YORK, Feb. 22, 2003

The Grammy Awards used to be a hotel ballroom event for a few hundred executives in the recording industry.

That all changed when Pierre Cossette first brought the awards to a national television audience in 1971.

Now, more than a billion people worldwide watch the Grammys.

Pierre Cossette visited The Saturday Early Show to discuss his autobiography, “Another Day in Showbiz: One Producer’s Journey,” which follows his beginnings in the music business to becoming the “Father of the Grammys.” Read More
