93.3 WMMR  Trivia, Name 5 Rock Bands With Colors In Their Names.

I was walking by Independence Mall Today. The 4th of July festivities have begun in Philadelphia, PA.  The first capital of the USA, if you forgot.

How do I get one of those T-shirts? Black Crows, Black Keys, Blue Oyster Cult, Pink Floyd, and Simply Red.

I was the first winner of the day. Yes, 93.3 WMMR Rocks.

Do you know what the logo in the middle of the T-shirt is? I knew right away.

Then I stumble upon synchronicity of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark side of the Moon’  Wow.

Comfortably Numb, Roger Waters & David Gilmour, Live, London, 2011.

I wished I would have seen the original production of “The Wall” at the Spectrum in Philadelphia.   I was a  4-5th year full-time student at Temple University during the formative/passionate years of Classic Rock and Roll.  My sister-mother from Alpha Gamma Delta worked at 93.3 WMMRJoe Bonadonna,  was on air radio personality during the afternoon I believe Mark Goodman followed him. Joe gave me a not to be sold LP of “The Wall.”  Lots of brilliant rock and roll was exposed in Philly.  WMMR was located on the 2nd or 3rd floor overlooking Rittenhouse Square at 19th and Walnut Streets.  

I hung out there during live broadcasts with friends from Temple..  Now, that I remember, that was totally awesome. But, back in the day no one was superficial. It was always a party. Music was the magic.

But through the power of the Internet, I can relive and research my days of future past.

BTW, can you tell I become inspired  upon brilliant guitar musicians.
