Just some thoughts…..
There MAY be a strong possibility that the “Thursday”edition of TheREWIND may return,albeit not the “live” version however,but a taping of our Sunday shows and rebroadcasting them on Thursday’s possibly at a earlier time than 7:00PM ET,our original time slot for Thursdays.We haven’t done a live show on Thursday’s since mid November and while I don’t plan on doing a live Thursday show in the near future(although you never know)hopefully we can fill that void with an encore of our previous Sunday’s show.
Special shout out to friend to the station and fellow radio DJ/host/producer Terry “T-Bone”Mathley,who’s had a string of health issues lately has set up a Go Fund Me account to off set his humongous health insurance cost with a goal of $10,000. He reached that goal in 4 days!!! 4 DAYS!!! Quite a few of those donors were from REWINDNation and for all of you who donated,THANK you from the bottom of my heart! Our friend T-Bone will now be able to afford those HUGE medical financial payments. You can STILL contribute to Terry’s account by going on Facebook and searching for Terry Mathley and looking on his page,find the Go Fund Me post and follow the instructions. Your generosity will go a LONG way in helping a special friend to the station!

I haven’t done a “legit” blog here for a LONG time. For that I want to apologize for that and let you know that I’ll be doing at least a weekly blog talking about random thoughts,the latest in the world of music and life in general so I hope you take time out to read and more importantly,send feedback and give YOUR opinions on issues so we can move our shows,TheREWIND and theREWIND//UK forward to give YOU the listeners what YOU want to hear musically from the 70’s and 80’s. Having said that,well here goes…….
I just found out that Howard Stern will pay tribute to Rock ICON,the late David Bowie with a music special on Friday February 9th at 10PM ET. He has gathered a great array of music artist to record some of David Bowie’s biggest and best known songs. The list of artist Stern recruited to take part in this nearly year long project include,Peter Frampton,and my Philly homeboys Todd Rundgren and my man,Daryl Hall who recorded Bowie’s 1975 #1 classic,“Fame”(I heard it and D sounds fantastic).Unfortunately,right now the only way you can hear this special is if you have Sirius/XM Satellite radio and if you subscribe to The Howard Stern channel,Howard 100. I’m hoping that this special makes it’s way on a CD/album so I can purchase it. If your a Bowie fan,this is a special you can’t pass up!
Congrats to my hometown NFL team,the Philadelphia Eagles for defeating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII this past Sunday February 4th. There will be a victory parade this Thursday,February 8 in Philadelphia and there are estimates that more than 3 million people will attend(I’ll watch the festivities on TV,thank you very much).Here’s hoping there won’t be any dangerous incidents and everyone is safe.

Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles for winning the Super Bowl beating the New England Patriots 41-33! In honor of our big win we’ll be playing great championship music for the next hour or so ….so enjoy!!
Today in the USA we celebrate what’s known as an “unofficial” national holiday,Super Sunday in which,for our International listeners is when we take the entire day to celebrate the Super Bowl which is played every year around this time which the two best teams in the NFL square off until a NEW champion is crowned. As most of you know,I was born,raised and currently live in Philadelphia,home of Daryl Hall & John Oates and home of The Philadelphia Eagles who just happen to be in THIS year’s BIG GAME going up against The New England Patriots in Minneapolis,Minnesota at US Bank Stadium tonight at 6:28 ET US time. So because of that,there will NOT be a live REWIND tonight but I WILL be on playing music at around 1:45PM ET US time for about 90 minutes or so just playing random great music from the REWINDRadioNow music library. Also we’ll talk about our upcoming show this Wednesday February 7th at 2:00PM ET US time//7:00PM UK time.
