Couple of little (but very cool) bits of news for you on this fucking freezing Saturday morning.
First of all, it was awesome to see that Dick Wagner’s e-book, Not Only Women Bleed, reached the number one spot in the “Biographies and Memoirs of Entertainers” category on Amazon this week. We still haven’t read it, but that is great news.
Meanwhile, much loved local DJ Martin Bandyke is presenting a series of music documentaries plus a live performance by Levon Helm, at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor to celebrate his 30th anniversary in broadcasting. Martin will do live introductions at several of the dates.
