Re: [ARSCLIST] recent newsletter article
The picture of Spotts and I arguing a fine point of discography (hmm,
yass), which I believe Steve Ramm shot (but it may have been taken by
Cary Ginnell), was taken at the 2008 conference. It's one of my favorite
photos and it shows my magnificent beardage. I'll attach a copy to a
private email to you, Mike. Watch for it.

Yes, t'was me. You shoulda seen the beard I grew for the 2008 ARSC

I met Mike and Steve Barr (at my first ARSC meeting in Madison, WI)
we were immediately dubbed the Three Wise Guys, mostly because we
were the only ones there in full facial regalia. I was intent on
I was telling Leah about the three of us after she saw that picture in
the newsletter. Actually last year I had let my beard and hair grow
real long as a practical joke for her because she had not seen me
since we had done the interviews for her documentary the previous
summer. We had not gotten around to recording MY interview, and I was
going to record it while she would be on the phone and unable to see
me. I figured she would freak out when she started the tape!!! Those
of you who attend ARSC this May will see the out-take start of the
interview with my shaggy self, and then I pretend to re-set the camera
and sit down again with my hair and beard relatively neatly trimmed.
(I was still shaggy when I was in the hospital after my heart
incident, and I must have looked like a homeless tramp. I kept on
explaining that this shaggy look was a practical joke . . . And I
knew I HAD to survive to do that interview!)
It's getting into spring now and I'll be cutting it all off. I'll
look almost academic.
It would have been interesting to compare our shaggy selves last
year!! Maybe we'll take that picture of you and compare it with the
shots of my shaggy personage and the shots of Steve Barr that we took
for the documentary. Anybody have the stills that were taken of the
three of us in Madison? Maybe Steve Ramm? I'll try to check the
viedotapes of that conference and see if we had someone use my camera
while the three of us posed. And I wonder if Leah got any shots of
you at Stanford last year.

we last met and you seem to have grown extra facial hair since
then! Nice article and photo though. Jack Palmer

I just received the ARSC Newsletter (No. 119 - Winter 2009) to find
that an interview I'd done and forgotten about was featured as a 2
page center spread. Boy, was I surprised. It makes me sound pretty
strange (hey, I'm a record collector... I are supposed to be strange).
But I think I come off sounding like a wiseass, albeit
I'll watch my wording more closely in the future!
Good picture, though.
Thanks for the mention.
PS - I'm certainly not forgetting the award ARSC gave me for
excellence in historic sound research for 2008. From the heart,
thanks to all of you for your continued support! MR
