Q’s and Ass

It’s not a spelling typo, but there should be an apostrophe between the 2 s’s. Simply means that each of the Q(uestions) gets two A(nswers), one from Bobby Rich and the other from Dr. Boogie. Being incorrect (or “in-crow-‘NECK”) with pronunciation (or “PRONOUNCE’-ee’-a-shun”) has never stopped either of these geniuses. Neither has using made-up words. But we deegrass… Q: I listen to B100 to hear songs I remember and love but then you go and play something I’ve never heard before.Read more

more What Radio Is Today – part 2

“RADIO.”  I still love saying that “I am in radio” when meeting people. These are the times we all need to ’embrace change.’ Just about everything is changing. Much of it led by technology. But RADIO still exists, and many stations are doing a good job of changing with the times–while keeping the programming elements that always made it great. When satellite radio (still “radio,” did you notice?) first hit the scene I was concerned. But for the wrong reasons.Read more

They Still Aren’t Making NEW Oldies

     I used to think listening to songs from “my time” would mean I was stuck living in the past. But that was stupid. After all, there is current and recent music everywhere we turn.

We all need to keep up with what’s going on soRead more

Did you watch the MTV Video Music awards?

When exactly do we realize we have totally changed our appreciation for current pop music? Have you? Or do you remember when you did? We remember when MTV started. And then when they stopped showing music videos. That got our attention and meant something to us. But if you’re like most of us over 49 today you probably really don’t give a crap about today’s MTV awards. Or artists. Or songs. Here’s a hint: you don’t know most (if any) of the artists nominated for the awards. YouRead more

“I Don’t Know What I Like…

…but I don’t like THAT song because I don’t know it.” After decades as a radio programmer and dj, I’ve been involved in every different form of research. From record/tape/CD/download sales and phone/email/text requests to auditorium and on-line music testing to focus groups, survey mailings and random call-out canvassing.  Go ahead, ask someone what kind of MUSIC they like.Read more

Dr. Boogie’s Bourbon Experience

Welcome to Dr. Boogie’s Bourbon Experience. Bourbon’s main characteristic is its sweetness, but it’s also a bit smoky due to the charred oak of the barrels it’s aged in. According to MEN’S JOURNAL, “By definition, whiskey (or whisky, in Scotland) is a spirit distilled from fermented grain mash — grain varieties include wheat, rye, barley, and corn — and then aged in wooden barrels. Whiskey is made all over the world and there are many popular styles including Scotch whisky, IrishRead more
