I was getting some breakfast at the Student Union, (As you do) because i woke up late and hadn't had any breakfast yet. Of course in the student union they still had the music videos turned on even though it was 10 am in the morning. Everything was going fine, reading the paper and eating occasionally looking up at Vh1. It was the 40 beat Party Anthems on unitil they reached no 29 Earth, Wind and Fire - Boogie Wonderland and the dancers sung the introduction and the main singer came down and then Shock Horror. It's Faarooq out of the APA. Hell even the hair is the same. I had the establishment immediately as to not to lose my breakfast. Arrgh! Scary
Go here www.air3.co.uk and listen to my show i won't be back on till the semester starts though Times to follow soon "I believe cheese and rock can live in harmony" A mish-mash of musical styles
Of course it was Faarooq aka Ron Simmons - You really didnīt knew that? His worldwide fame as a singer was the only reason they gave him the WCW title in the early 90s! Donīt you remember the fan base back then saying: "What the hell? A singer as world champion?!"
Later they repeated that mistake with an actor known as David (right first name?) Arquette... ;)
Art Bell announced that he is going to retire at the end of the year. Any thoughts. Are you a fan of his? First off I think it was very impressive that he took a show that was not to conventional radio talk topics (ie politics, sports etc)
