Mrs. Manicotti (ASC) makes her funk B.T. funk. What’s up ya’ll? I grew up in Red Hook so when I heard Bob Dylan was playing Prospect Park the other night, I just laughed. Would he play the Red Hook crime saga, “Joey”? Would he play anything from Street Legal, the 1978 album dedicated to Brooklyn-native […]

The Music Director gets on the good foot: hop hop hop. It’s too much to explain just now but the Old School is my school & in addition to rocking Rockaway Playland, Times Square peep shows & an old Rusian Aunt in the Bronx (everybody had one), I would listen to the the 98.7 Kiss-FM […]

Swan’s signs of the vernacular: ya’ll don’t have to read ‘em but life is a lot funnier if you do.

No Fort Hamilton, no Floyd Bennett, no two-fare zones, no factories; there was a St. Finbar (Feastday September 25) but he didn’t have a school, a flea market or find your best […]

WWIB Transportation Editor, Swan, explains: Ya’ll can check the record, we went for Barry early— who the hell wouldn’t have? Not the Mighty Sparrow! All three Clintons are venal, John Edwards was a stiff, Dennis Kucinich had a hot wife & no traction: please, let’s not relive the nightmare again so soon; gracias. Today, however, […]

Welcome back Caz Dolowicz! Thanks, glad to be back, lots to catch up with. First, ya’ll must go see Stitching, & not just because Meital Dohan is such a great interview. I confess, I’m mostly a be-bop, big band, hillbilly & old blues guy myself but The Music Director told me some of the cooler […]
