"If you have Daddy issues, here's a Daddy tissue"


*My first personal lesson learned as a Father was that you can't take anything for granted. I lost my first son Michael who was born 3 months premature with maladies. On days like this, the memory remains painful, but I realized a long time ago that my eldest son Derek would not have been born if not for that terrible occurrence. So the sadness was balanced with the joy of his life. My youngest son Curtis was named after my Father Lavern Curtis Wohlman and he resembles him in many ways, so it all circles back. There is no manual and there are ups and downs, as there are with all relationships, but love remains constant.

Dedicated to the men in my life, as well as to You and your Dad.

Happy Fathers Day

"I'm in love with modern moonlight
128 when it's dark outside
I'm in love with Massachusetts
I'm in love with the radio on"

 *The music featured was created by friends and family during the fertile years of 1975 - 1985. When  curating the selections, all I had to do was close my eyes and remember that period in my hometown: WTBS/WMBR, Late Risers Club/Friday Night Live/TVOD, WBCN, The Rat, Spit, The Paradise, driving past the Stop 'n' Shop when it's dark outside like a Roadrunner. 
Many of these artists went on to stardom, others got "real" jobs and some have left us - 
all were integral to the beat of the city then and now!
Enjoy a snapshot of one of the most amazing scenes in any city at any point in time.
These bands were music - I was radio - some things never change.
Turn this up wicked loud - Fuck Beantown - This is Boston!

"Never get out of the boat.
Absolutely goddamn right.
Unless you're going all the way"

*54 years ago on May 15, 1970, less than two weeks after the fall of Saigon to North Vietnamese forces and less than a month after the Khmer Rouge captured the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh, Cambodian Communist troops forcibly seized an American merchant ship, the SS Mayaguez, in the Gulf of Thailand. In so doing, the Khmer Rouge began what some argue was the “last battle” of the Vietnam War. In an attempt to recover the ship and rescue its 39 civilian crew members, President Gerald Ford ordered a force of 175 Marines to make an amphibious assault on the island of Koh Tang, where U.S. intelligence believed the crew was being held. The entire crew was eventually rescued, but the effort led to the deaths of 41 American servicemen. All those killed in the operation to rescue the crew of the Mayaguez, including the 23 Air Force Airmen killed in the training accident on May 13, are memorialized on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., on Panel 1W, Lines 124–132.

I ask that you suppose that this DLM session was the
 "RFW Good Morning Vietnam" broadcast
that was listened to by the soldiers preparing for the not-so surprise attack. 

May your god bless Our Troops and The United States Of America.
