Transmission 3913

We interrupt your regularly scheduled RFW Transmission for this important Saturday Night Special Warning : Even though he is pictured on this post in a shameless bait and switch attempt to gain your attention and despite the fact that John Travolta was very cool as Tony Manero (the character even had a Rocky poster in his bedroom - but John's acting was much more effective in SNF, than in the inferior sequel - but I digress), there is no Bee Gee disco music inside (not that I don't dig Stayin' Alive and How Deep Is Your Love! - ahh, I've strayed again)! Instead you will find the raw and raucous sounds of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Little Richard, ZZ Top, Iggy & The Stooges, Dub Pistols, Snoop Lion, Major Lazer, Patti Smith, Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones, The Shazam, The Len Price 3, Raspberries, The Fannie Clark Singers, U2, Yea Yea Yeas and Butch Walker!

Woman, Lady, Female - all fitting and pc - but they don't work as well when singing "she's just the 'Girl U Want' "! This is not about the plural - Girls - this is about the singular one!

Rex, Beatle John, The Deer Hunter, Prince, Steve Wonder, Eddie Kendricks, Duran Duran, Neil Diamond, The Beach Boys, Duane Eddy and the Rebels, Foreigner, Abel Fletcher, The Black Keys, The Troggs, Memphis Slim and Bob Dylan!

Transmission 3413

You are not alone in your grief, anger and fear. In the shadow of the recent act of terrorism and cowardliness, the home of the original patriots is the true hub of the world. The outpouring of good-will messages to RFW from our extended family in 191 countries has inspired me to respond the way I know best. If music can soothe the savage beast, perhaps it can also heal our hearts, diffuse our tempers and calm our anxiety. This is Boston - The Standells, Barry & The Remains, Human Sexual Response, Willie Loco Alexander & The Boom Boom Band, The J. Geils Band, Aerosmith, Piper, The Cars, The Modern Lovers, Mission Of Burma, DMZ, Pixies, Karate, Galaxy 500 and Isis!

This beautiful little nine year old boy is Martin Richards. He and his family were very excited to greet his Dad as he crossed the finish line at the Boston Marathon. The blast took Martin's life, claimed the leg of his six year old sister Jane and caused a head injury to his Mom, who underwent brain surgery.

I am just coming out of my initial shock of being so close to the bombings with my son, nephew and best friend and I am feeling very mortal.

There is nothing we can do to stop these evil people who justify harming innocent people as a statement or solution to their grievances or cause. If their intentions are to wreak havoc - no amount of surveillance, security or precautions will stop them.

What we can do is understand that the world has changed. Liberties and freedoms that we have the right to, may still be in place - but the sense of security we have grown up with is no longer applicable.

Hold your children, teach your children, protect them, supervise them, love them. We no longer can take for granted the idea that they will be safe no matter where they go.

This country is great, Boston is an amazing city, my fellow Bostonians are kind, resilient and brave - but Martin is gone. The killing and/or capture of the despicable culprits did not bring him back or return his sister's limb. I will keep his picture as a reminder of my role as a parent - to protect our children, as a man - to love my fellow men and as a child of God - to believe that in the end, love, peace and understanding will prevail.

Goodbye, Martin
