LARRY WILSON STARRING IN "BLUES BROTHERS 2009" Chuck Geiger
"We're putting the band back together" and if the band was good, which it was; You need the same players. I know, because I was in the band. I did sound in Allentown. When I went to work for Larry Wilson in 1997, I had no idea what was in store. I had just left what was the pre-cursor to AM/FM and Clear Channel in Capstar. It was mired in politics and corporate layers, blogged by the paralysis of analysis. Freedom and the chance to exercise your creative desires and thoughts was encouraged under Larry Wilson and then-Citadel. Scott Mahalick once ask me, "who abused you at your last job"? I said Capstar did. Meaning I constantly asked permission to perform my job. At Citadel in 1997, you didn't ask permission to be creative and hit the high notes. The band was perfectly orchestrated. Working with Larry Wilson, Stu Stanek, Bob Proffitt, Scott Mahalick and Bob Glasco was a high. The company was performance based, but wrapped in creativity and personal obligation to success. When I hear what's happening with Alpha Broadcasting, I applaud the encore and hope they don't have to play at Bob's Country Bunker.
