Only 3 weeks after his mother Inez passed (see a few posts below), our brother from another mother and all-in-all, the best bartender we’ve ever known, Tony Stempeck died of complications from COVID today. A wit as fast as any comedian alive or dead, Tony was a flat-out kingpin. A cornerstone. We are seriously rocked by this loss. More soon.
You think this COVID thing is all a hoax? Pack sand.
Lots of funny guesses, but only a few got the guy with the chest rug as Michael Martin Murphy. The one on the right, now known as ‘curly’ is our own Frank Stanton (who does ID’s and voice work for us) a stellar Boss Jock (at the mighty KFH Witchita) back in the day. Told you it was hard! You don’t think we’re going to give away 3 songs for nothing, do you? Thanks for trying tho’! —Stay tuned (up!).
One of the most important & loved women in our world slid away to the other side this morning. More soon. We’re tied up crying a lot and drinking a little more. Oh, and for those of you in outer orbits, Inez was a longtime Reno centerpiece of her own society.
Ok, so a few have guessed our blonde hunk-a-burnin’-love, and one even guessed the leader of the Disco trio (Dave & Sugar!—lookitup!) but understandably no correct guesses on ‘curly’. So, he’s a radio veteran, and real Veteran, and not a stranger to the Jive airwaves. New guesses must contain the names of both schmoes.
Ok, so only one person has guessed only one of the 2 schmoes, so here’s some clues:
-in the pic above our man schmoe is also pictured with a somewhat popular trio back in the day, and,
-in the pic below, the guy with the blonde wig and chest toupeé and stoned look is now a somewhat well-known right-wing troubadour.
The first 3 Jivers that name these 2 schmoes get a free 3-song set at noon on a day of their choice! Send your entries to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org [Friends or family of the two, or either of the two, or anyone working for Kellogg’s/Quaker Oats is prohibited from participating.]
