17 years ago i made this W.G.O.D. G O Dcast. Tape number 50 was elusive in it's appearance.when i got to number 49 ,I wanted to wait for number 50 ,for a special occasion which never really surfaced.I even had a friend (Ron Bohn in Atlanta,Georgia ,ex-patriate of the Ft. Myers scene) name his band ,"GOD50" .which was an honor ,but 49 carried on thru fractions and decimals (ie: 49 and 16/17ths ,49 and 17/18ths or 49.25,49.26,49.27 ..etc. and so on) until I met the girl who was to become my wife. I decided to then do W.G.O.D. 50 because i felt a change in my life about to happen,and figured it was as good of an occasion as any to let loose on number 50! Since the broadcast is from 1997 ,I play stuff that was current at that time,usually reflected in my recent purchases.I throw in some classics and oldies for good measure ,and there is the obligatory SLUGGISHA artists set ,and those great bits by Doug Shannon. This goes out to my wife,Annette ,Doug Shannon,Ralph Tarantino,Vance Burdge,Jay Counce,Mike Brophy,Joel Rizzo,Tony Rizzo,Chris Parfitt ,Jake Joyce ,Joe Willa ,John Keane ,Bob Suren ,Ashey MacDonald ,Jeff McDonald ,Rich Deckard,and John Marion.And anyone i forgot ,and those who just enjoy my podcasts. Thanks for your support!
I am posting this special episode 50 to remind all of you that one month from now G O D will be turning 50 years old!! I plan on putting together a 50th birthday compilation ,in which I will choose 50 of my favorite bands that I've been in over the last 35 years (and they literally number in the hundreds) ,and play the best song from each of those bands!
