RIP Dick Dale. You supplied MANY hours of entertainment during my younger days in the early 60's.




He was playing at the Silver Reef Casino last time I was up there. That was probably 8 or 9 years ago.

Not real familiar with the name. Was that his guitar on the opening music for Pulp Fiction?

Yes. I never heard it (Misirlou) before that movie, though I had heard of Dick Dale.

Been to the Silver Reef many times - It's the closest casino to my home. Back when I was still smoking and the smoking ban made it impossible to enjoy an evening out anywhere else, I spent a lot of time at the Reef.

Ranking Roger might not be familiar to most folks. I was a fan of The English Beat and General Public.

I am a huge fan of first wave "Cool Britannia". Bands like English Beat and Haircut 100. Ranking Roger was very much an ambassador when the sound made it to our side of the pond.

I liked them both, and I still hear some of their work on the radio here in Guam--one of the nice things about being on a low-population island is that the radio media is all local and independent. yeah there are the nauseating top-20 pop/hip-hop stations, but there are several "oldies" and "adult" stations that play very nice playlists spanning the 1960s-1990s.

A lot of great UK music post punk. Even early 'boybands' like Haircut 100 made some great pop. Ska, 2tone, New Romantics, post punk, new wave, some great bands out of Scotland and NI as well.

Part of my childhood. The Beat as we know them. Reformed and still touring. I was lucky enough to see them in Glasgow last year. Great gig.

I LOVE the ska/2tone music and scene/look of the late 70s and early 80s. The Beat, The Specials, The Selector.

RIP Roger.

I remember the Walker Brothers (none of whom were actually named "Walker", LOL. He changed his name for stage purposes.) Mostly I remember the hit "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore", because that's the one that got all the radio airplay in my part of the world. But I understand he also had a successful solo career.

RIP Scott.

I wonder that they don't have a 'Celebrity Death-Wish' list - a list of pols and celebs whom you wish were assuming room temp. <_< (like soros, for example)

Charles Van Doren, Contestant in Quiz-Show Scandal, Dies at 93
https://www.bloomber...ndal-dies-at-93

I never heard of Mr. Van Doren (or the show for that matter) until an excellent movie called Quiz Show came out in the 90's. In these times, this man would be considered a rank amateur in the perpetrating a public fraud department, and barely an eyelash would bat.

I've always wondered how much Game Shows are currently rigged. I don't doubt it's at least SOME. Way too often - not always, of course, but way more often than can be explained randomly - the most 'likeable' person wins.

But game shows would be at least 4th down in public frauds.

#1 - Network News, of course. I especially remember the one with a reporter in a canoe whilst two guys walked right behind in in ankle-deep water. And don't EVEN get me started on political coverage.

#2 - "Reality" shows of ANY sort. Oh puh-lease, there's more 'reality' in any given pro wrestling match.

#3 - ... but especially reality shows involving one person or group of persons "alone" in the wilderness. All alone... except for the 20-person production crew following them around.

I remember her. Loved that show (still watch the reruns), so I'm familiar with all the characters and the actors who played them.

RIP Ms Engel.

Gene Wolfe Dies, Age 87

Died April 14th at age 87. By far my favorite author, a master of his craft. May he RIP, we will not see his like again.

John Singleton, Pioneering Director Of 'Boyz N The Hood,' Dies At 51
April 29, 20194:53 PM ET

Boyz N The Hood was only his first film. He's has a long directorial career, even for someone his age. I'm not an 'action' fan, but I've enjoyed a few of his movies, including the first.

51 is way too young. RIP
