Dan Clarke plans to "lock the catbox"

I am interested in doing an air shift once again for alumni day 2007! Especially since my son was singing "Lock the catbox, lock the catbox... " from the TV commercial..I said its" Rock the Casbah", from the Clash, who made the most important album of the 80's, London Calling...he said huh?..the who? Yeah, I would love to do an air shift...

Happy New Year!!

Hey Dan,

Make sure you also play one of Tom Z's old favorites.....Elton John's "Somebody Shaved my Wife Tonight"

Way to go, Dan. I had a very similar experience a few days ago. My son was reviewing the new issue of Blender, which featured an interview with the Clash's Mick Jones.

My son asked "Who's Mick Jones??"

I of course beat him with the magazine, kicked him out of the house, and put him up for adoption.

Dan C. here again...yes the spaghetti splash... I dont tell my kids about that one...:) rememebr WTNH was there and we watched ourselves at the Bushwhacker later that night..I prefer the memories of the remotes like car shows at the airport...Simms Bros at Rogers Park....the concert we hosted at the Woodbury ski mountian (Jonathon Edwards, Orleans), wxci nights at the fore and aft...even a couple of trips to jones beach for summer night new music concerts...friday night music specials...WXCI t-shirts were more popular than the Wii...funny how all of the music from that era is all on my Ipod, and of course the Beatles...

Oh by the way, nice to hear from you really deserve the credit for transforming our station at the dawn of punk and new wave in the states. You saw it coming before anyone. By introducing new music into the format, you really put WXCI on the map for a whole new audience. I think I heard you play "Lies" by the Thompson Twins on your "Adventure Jukebox" show. I was like " what the heck is that?" But we all listened and learned and, well, as I say I still listen to that music today! You saw it before anyone else! It's no surprise that you are so sucessful in business with your vision and creativity!

Some of you may recall that Dan Clarke won the WXCI beauty contest at a beach remote we did at Candlewood Lake. Dan showed up in a two piece. I think we should have specified that it was for girls only.

Ever tell your wife about those days, Dan?

Hey Bob,
Nice to hear from you! Funny, just going through all of my XCI stuff in the basement storage (reel to reel tapes, Satin jacket, A/P type of John Lennon's death) I came upon a story and picture of that remote from a trade paper...Hope all is well with you! Will you be there on the 24th?
