Every week or so we will be dusting off an old 45 and putting them on display. Along with the picture of these old gems, we will have a story about each of them. Once a 45 has been featured and replaced with a new one, it will be moved into The Archives. Here’s the latest entry:

The recent death of Keith Emerson prompted me to write a story about him on my website. It also got me to look into the 45s that I have by the group.

As I talk about in great length in my book “Confessions of a Teenage Disc Jockey,” I was scheduled to do an interview with ELP when they first formed. We were to meet at their first real public appearance, the concert at the Isle of Wight in the summer of 1970. Some way to start a career, but the group were all seasoned veterans by the time they formed. We didn’t meet at the time (again refer to the book), but did meet some years later.
