DAVE,P.S. to above.I'll also be setting in on drums so I hope we can do these songs together I've been practicing to ,BLACK AND BLUE,only thing is my sizzle cymble is to overtoned,but I have it down pat.Also have LIL BO and FLAMINGO EXPRESS to a T.It would be so KOOL if we can do these together and with GEORGE "THE KAT"and NICK too.I think the unique thing here is,these are songs LIL-BO was on and it could be a tribute to BO.The band also does some HURRICANES mat.so that will be a plus for LYNN to play with.Any ideas let me know,the band will learn whatever we want them to do as long as I send them a tape prior to the dance.(hey RALPH,hows my spaling ?)
I wish everyone could make it but this will be a annual thing,so there will be other times and planning time ahead .A professional photographer will be on site as a video cam also.

Hey Count,
Speaking for Ralph (sorry bro', I couldn't help myself), your spelling and grammer still leave a lot to be desired. However, you're such a cooool guy, that it just doesn't matter.

How are you feeling? Everything going okay? George is healing slowly, but I have no doubt that he'll be out and about soon.

Outsider,
This is the second time I had to delete one of your posts. If you have a problem with anyone here I expect you to address that problem in a civil manner. You will not come on here and insult valued forum members who have contributed positively here. I hope you get the message pal. I will not play games with you. I don't have time for trouble makers. Ralph Terrana.

Mr.Terrana, In this foum you let insulting jokes about Jewish people stay, how is that being a fair moderator?

I'm Jewish and I've never been insulted by anything anyone's ever said on this forum. Please be a little more specific...

Millie,the joke about jews amd canoes is very insulting to jewish people, Jewish people are not cheap. They tip very well , People in food service industry will atest to that.The outsider

Outsider,
Many of us here ( including myself ) will make veiled jokes about my Sicilian nationality and what it " might " represent, if you get my drift. Big Deal! This world has gotten SO overly politically correct that we can barely talk to anyone anymore without ruffeling someone's feathers. This forum is represented by many people from all over the world, all coming from a rich variety of cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds. If for any reason I thought that something was posted that would be offensive to even one of these fine people I would immediately delete the post. However, I don't see it here. Sure, we may rib one another a little from time to time, but on the whole I have never seen such a large group of varied individuals that have more respect for one another than I do at this place. Hang with us Outsider and try and see things our way.

THANK YOU RALPH,and thanx to all who have had so many possitive things to display here.
Our doo-wop dinner dance was a total success,because of all the fine and understanding people here.I cannot thank you all enough,the guests,the entertainers that you see and read about right here.The owner of the MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR corporation I work for is JEWISH,and I have the highest respect for him and any other
JEWISH RELIGION,for our dance he donated 500.00
dollars to the KONTINENTALS,which we used for cash door prizes,5ive at 100.00 dollars each.
I,like RALPH hear the same thing because I'am ITALIAN(DAGO,WOP,GINEY,GREASEBALL,etc.)
maybe thats why I could never do the twist,because I'am "WOP-SIDED".

THIS THREAD IS NO LONGER NEEDED HERE,the gig is over and the display of it here helped in it's success,and I believe there should be room for THE FUNK BROTHERS to get their thing going on.
THE FORUM has grown,and will continue to grow and be strong,so RALPH,DAVID,LOWELL, Thanx for so much
RALPH,I need a signature here to delete this thread,please sign on the dotted line.........................

Hi everyone!
Here's one for TheCount....

Can you provide me ANY information (as per your opening header thread) about the/any availability of the LEE ALAN CDs (you had mentioned), "Back In The Sixties"?

Are any of these CDs available, and, 'what' (from the former radio-broadcasted series) is for sale?

Certainly, I had enjoyed this LEE ALAN series he had personally produced, as it was broadcasted back in the late 80s and during the early 1990s, I recall hearing them last (then), on sunday nights, on 94.3 CKLW FM.

Any further insight to the ascribed mention above would be appreciated.

Top of pageBottom of page   By thecount (65.60.201.174) on Sunday, January 12, 2003 - 12:50 pm:

HEY JIM,good to hear from you,and thanx for your interest.Right now I have VOL.#1 and #3 for purchase.Please visit our web for more details and you will see LEE ALAN on the horn at the dance in the pictures,and in members pics.
