A Ferry interesting day...
Just back from New York where I had the opportunity to record a segment with Bryan Ferry for an upcoming feature on The Loft. Great guy and we had a good time "playing records"... Here's a few we played today.

Ahh, Roxy Music. In the early 80's I was fortunate enough to get to fly to Memphis, Tennisee to visit with a friend who was attending the university there. While there, we were going to drive across the state with three of her friends to wittness and experience the "World's Fair". It was a long car ride and being from Detroit,I was not accustomed to hearing that much country music! About half way there we made a stop at a gas station to fill up. While wandering through the gas station store I noticed a bin of 8 track cassette tapes for a dollar each. I started to look through them...all country artists...but wait, hope "Chicago", I dug deeper and there, near the bottom was "Roxy Music". I really only was familiar with one song (Love is the Drug) but I bought it anyway. My friend also was familiar with the song and talked her friends into playing the tape. I listened in amazement while she and her friends listened in horror! Being from the south they were very polite and told me how 'interesting' they thought it was. The tape made it home with me and I wore it out playing it on my parents portable 8 track player. It was the only 8 track tape I ever owned.

Tennessee, LOL! At least I didn't spell it Tennis c. I find that as I'm aging my spelling becomes more and more comical.
