May 12 2008 at 13:41:04 Name: Gary Chew Topic: More Than 2000 Miles All The Way Email: Arnoldzburg, CA Comments: On the local PBS cable channel last night, I watched
a 2006 pub tv show titled, "The Mother Road." About good ol' Route Six Six.
Not my usual cup of tea, I hung in there anyway as I thought I'd get some
newer images of my fave Oklahoma town. But nope. No such luck.
The filmmaker jumped from the groovy, old Coleman Theater in Miami to OKC,
leaving out, surely, as every singer has (except for Perry Como), "You'll
love the aroma of Tulsa, Oklahoma." "By the time I got to Amarillo" though,
it was neat to hear Asleep at the Wheel western-swinging, "Route 66."
Another misfire was composer, singer, pianist, actor Bobby Troup's voice
missing from the soundtrack. And in the credit fly-by, I didn't see his name
either. A smidgen of the great Nat Cole doing the great Troup song was used
at the top of the program with the skyline of Chicago on the screen.
The Oklahoma City segment was touching. The folks in the travelogue stopped
by the Murrah Building and paid their respects---a moving moment for any
American, especially us Okies-types.

Comments: Was in Chicago for end of National Train Day at Union
Station and enjoying the tones of the "World's Greatest Rockers" doing encores
in the 1920s old part of the station. These are ex-Lynyrd Skynyrd, Santana
and a polyglot of great-headed rockers who played with name bands way back
when. Amazing how many bald-pated and gray headed fans were there grooving
away. Nice touch, AMTRAK!
Killing time on a nice but windy day...went to Wabash Avenue. In my youth,
home of the Palmer House (being remodelled again), "musicians' row" of music
shops and studios and Chicago's "camera shop row" all under the Loop El.
But something was wrong: from Jackson north under the El hung a giant canvas
wall. Talked to the guys at Central Camera (last of the big photo shops and
oldest in town). Now the average age of a Central clerk is 50-60. They said
a film company was un-doing set modifications under the tarp. Johnny Depp
is shooting a new film on Wabash, in Joliet and on the Northside. He must
shop at Central because they are all fans!
Chicago has seen the Heath Ledger film, parts of the latest Spiderman pic
and the soon to be released new Batman film. The problem about shooting on
Wabash now is, blocks of classic old shops South of Jackson down to Congress
are now piles of rubble for NEW construction. So the film companies come
in and build facades or re-model newer buildings to look "period". So strange.

Tim Koch from England, produced some excellent retro rock they're marketing
Walker continues to do voiceovers, and Peters teaches middle school in south
central L.A. when they're not recording. I remember well when they produced
Cargoe (Rubbery Cargoe) when the band started
out in the 60s at Southland (now Promenade) at Skilly Forsman's place (I
played the 45s in-between sets...)
I had dinner with Jim and Robert last September in L.A., where both of them
live, and got the attached e-mail from Walker over the weekend. Among the
people they thanked for their new performances were Brian and Carl Wilson,
Ronnie Milsap, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Roger Daltry, and Nigel Olsson,
all of them musical geniuses.
I thought it was interesting in the credits that they named George Basil
(Scooter) Segraves IV,
Tommy Crook, former Drake-Chenault rock format
founder Bill Drake, and the former Tom Gordon (Tom
Guerdat --now deceased) as influences on their music.
Hopefully the gurus who make or break new rock music will feel kindly toward
them, because their hearts are in the right place.
I'm attaching Walker's original e-mail to me. I know a number of Tulsans
will be glad to know Peters and Walker are alive and well and recording great
rock in L.A.
Best to your readers,

Owens from Tulsa, can be reached at RobertW@walkersound.com.)

Of considerable interest to everyone here:
We need rock 'n' roll so badly. We've been missing a certain level of Rock
for the longest time. A couple of friends from KAKC who have worked together
on music for many years in many cities, Rob Walker and Jim Peters, now have
a chance to put their own music out to their fans. Tulsa people can be among
the first to hear it.
Jim and Rob brought Jim's son Ben into the band where his guitar virtuosity
is quite clear - and they picked up a great LA drummer named Tim Koch. They
have spent the last two years completing the work at their studios in the
Hollywood Hills and it's something to hear. And see.
It's at Spirit-Alley.com and every
page is worth examining. Watch their performance of "Aztec" on the "MOVIES"

Had lunch yesterday with Jerry Marsh, who was a Speech major at TU and at
one time split a house on 6th (still standing) with Larry Burnett, Mike Rusk

on Dotter's sister who also went to TU, but she never knew.
Jerry is a hired gun for managing credit unions and is now based in Wichita
after being the Chicago burbs for years.
Jerry asked me to post on TTM a question on 2 ex-TU speech professors of

it's fairly easy.
I've done about 200 casts so far, most posted on my web site

But you can get some decent ones at BSW Audio, bundles for under $100. You'll
need a mixer and an editing software program. I use an analog Yamaha 10/2,
which cost me about $100. You'll also need an digital interface to convert
analog to digital. M-Audio has their FireWire series that works extremely
well with an Apple computer. As for the recording software, Apple's Garageband
is real user friendly and has a couple of point and clicks to send the finished
product to iTunes. It will even convert your recording to an mp3 with one
So for less than $500 you can be up and running quickly.
Hope that helps.

May 06 2008 at 23:58:15 Name: Frank Morrow Topic: Trains Email: frankmoratiodotcom Comments: Trains have a long history in our culture. On the
media, particularly radio, the train had a much more pre-eminent place than
the airplane ever has achieved. The songs about or referring to trains are
so numerous that only a few can be mentioned:
"Blues in the Night"
"Folsum Prison Blues"
"Chattanooga Choo Choo"
"Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe"
"Saddest Man in Texas"
The train whistle was used frequently in radio dramas to set or enhance a
mood, indicating danger, loneliness, and mysteriousness.
Remember the Bromo-Selzer commercials? The electronically altered "voice"
of the train would say (simulating a steam train whistle), "Fiiiight headaaaches
threee waaayys. BROMOselzer-BROMOselzer-BROMOselzer-BROMOselzer." (The latter
simulating the sound of a steam train at high speed.) Young people who have
heard only diesel trains will have to take my word for it. By the way, people
still use the term "choo-choo train," although trains don't "choo-choo" anymore.
The train has permeated our culture in our language:
"Train of thought"
"Look at that caboose!"
Athletes "train" for their sport.
"I got sidetracked."
"Pour on the coal."
"Railroad Crossing. Look out for the cars. Can you spell that without any
"They're letting off steam."
"Getting all steamed up"

Matt Bunyan and I have been talking. He said when he first came to TU about
'66 or '67 via the Santa Fe, they still had a Pullman car on the train and
he was the only passenger in the car! Yes, there were coach riders too. It
came to the Santa Fe Freight Depot.
As noted here before, I travelled the Santa Fe and early AMTRAK between Tulsa

and TU student, Mike Gilmore and I dreaded most were school field trips getting
on in Tulsa and getting off at the first stop in Kansas.
The kids drained all of the water tanks for the toilets or plugged them up
