One time, when I was a teen-ager, my Mom, my sister and I were driving back to St. Louis from the North East US, and we stopped at a diner somewhere in either Ohio or Pennsylvania. Most of the ceiling of the diner had model airplanes hanging from it. I have driven that highway through Ohio and Pennsylvania many times since, but have never found the place again. Would anyone else have ever dined in such a place?

Re your 10:11 anmt, DS, maybe you could clear something up for me. On WFMU's schedule tables, much of the time on the Give The Drummer stream is listed simply as such. I've listened a LITTLE during those times, but have yet to figure out what that programming is. Is it the equivalent of automated radio, i.e. no personality? Is it reruns?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/19/14 10:27am Doug Schulkind:

@Robert
When a live show isn't airing on Give the Drummer Radio (like right now), the stream plays a continuous flow of music that I have selected for it. It is semi-automated in that it picks tracks at random from a pool of selections I have uploaded to it and it selects them within parameters that I have determined. So it is a machine operating with a human soul. If you will.

  Fri. 12/19/14 10:34am Robert:

Thanks, DS. I thought it would be funny (both in the ha-ha and strange senses) for WFMU to be using a format from commercial stations of the 1970 & eliminating the DJs! But then, that's what the Rock & Soul Ichi-ban is, isn't it? Funny how things go on the one hand from "How do we provide opp'ty for all these people to expose their art to the world?" when they had only radio, to "How do we fill all this time?" when you have streams. A problem to be desired!

  Fri. 12/19/14 10:42am Robert:

The technology of those automated stations in the 1970s & '80s was subject to glitches. There was a cueing track on taped programs that caused the next tape to play, and sometimes a spurious blip would cause that to be tripped prematurely. Sometimes it would take hours for such a station's only staffer on call to get there & fix things; otherwise it was just a guy showing up weekly to change tapes.

@Robert
Originally, WFMU station manager Ken Freedman suggested I do the stream modeled on Rock & Soul Ichiban. When I learned that I could broadcast my show live on the stream, I jumped at the offer. I am constantly uploading tracks for the stream to play in its semi-automated mode, but that pales in comparison to doing live radio.

When I was a kid, my all-time favorite meal was fried clams at Howard Johnson's. I had my birthday dinner there for much of my childhood.

There was a perfectly situated Denny's on my NJ to Boston college route, just about halfway, near a Red Roach Motel. There was also a wonderful old-style Chinese/Polynesian place in Framingham, MA along the same route, across from where my parents would stay on visits.

The seedy motel exterior shot representing a place in Detroit in the Howard Stern movie was a reversed shot of the former HoJo Motor Lodge on Fordham Rd. (US 1) here in the Bronx. They used to have all-you-can-eat fish fry on Wed.; my father figured the students from Fordham U. drove them broke on that one.

Long before we moved to Pittsburgh, we used to read a book to our daughter called "Uncle Andy's" written by Andy Warhol's (I think) nephew. In it he chronicled all the tunnels the family would drive through from Pittsburgh to New York to visit Uncle Andy.

@Carmichael: I could have had the road-food chain daily double down there in Naples w/ my Waffle House excursion. Sounds like I was better off with the diner on the main drag—packed, that mid-March weekend, with snowbirds and local seniors. And six hungover 40-somethings.
