FRIDAY FEBRUARY 21, 2014
My health has not been the best this past week, I think many of you know.
The Hollywood Hills may be week over the next few days and I will do my best to correct that. Do not feel sorry for me - push me hard, including corrections, picture submissions and story corrections. This is our newpaper, let's make it work. Jack Roberts
I was watching Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon today (Mon. the 17th) on “Pardon the Interruption” and during a segment on the Maryland/Duke BB game Wilbon noted the sensational announcing job done by Johnny Holliday, the Terps long-time play-by-play man. Tony then equated him with Vin Scully.
If there’s a higher tribute to a sports announcer I have no idea what the hell it could be ! BOB SHERWOOD

Launch TV is the newcomer, the underdog, the terribly forgotten pilots and shows, my show will be the first live show! 1 hour every night from NY with no intention of doing the A list or the B list. It is a personality driven show matching and mirroring our society as it is today, I am the old guy doing the new media. You might notice that Jimmy Fallon is the young guy doing the old media. A desk, chair, a curtain, a band, a monologue, a celebrity, So what's new? I am mobile, Goin in public with the camera on a Reynolds rap, great, underexposed talents and great people to the platforms.
Stunningly, Procol Harum was Headlining (must’ve been late ‘60s) and the tickets were $ 3.00! The mind boggles! Even without psychedelic stimulus. Today those wretches at Ticket Master would get $ 300 to $3,000….even if H.P.Lovecraft didn’t show up ! “Which one’s Pink ?” BOB SHERWOOD
PS: When you’re at MSNBC just avoid Chris Matthews. He’s talk your other leg off---at least to the point that you’ll lean so far left, you’ll fall over. You certainly won’t be welcome back in Texas!
DOUG STEPHAN TRAGEDY
Early yesterday morning (2/19) Eastleigh Farm -- located in the suburban Boston community of Framingham, Massachusetts – suffered a winter-related natural disaster in which one of the barn roofs collapsed under the weight of snow trapping, killing and injuring many animals. A fund-raiser has been launched to help with the formidable veterinarian bills, the care of the cows and the rebuilding of the barn. For information about the fundraiser, please click here.

Ironically, Doug Stephan recently launched a new, weekly one-hour show on TALKERS magazine’s experimental talk radio platform, Talkers Radio titled, “American Family Farmer with Doug Stephan,” designed to bring information, inspiration and a political voice to the hard-pressed, small farmers battling the powerful interests of the mega-corporate-government-supported farm complex that has been systematically squeezing them out of existence. The show airs with a new installment on TalkersRadio every Saturday morning at 8:00 am ET with repeats throughout the week at 11:00 am ET. Clearly, this disaster and its aftermath will provide Stephan with a tremendous amount of compelling material and content for the show
