My first USAF Dorm Mate worked at a Record Store in Kentucky....

He was the HUUUUUUUUGE Dokken fan. Anyway.....Talk about DJ like! In our small room, he must of had 500 cassettes. Where he worked, they had a quirk where they could get Demo tapes or something like it. ANY band I could think of, it seemed that there was a cassette in our room. I got a kick out of just looking at the info on bands on the cassettes. Heard TONS n TONS of songs by so many big names that were REALLY good but never saw the light of day on the radio or MTV. My first year, I was without a car so I spent a LOT of free time just going through his stash.

That poor guy...I heard 4-5 years ago, through a grape vine of old USAF Buds that he had hit really hard times, got busted several times for DUI and was having health issues. Nobody has a clue where he is now.

  Getting sentimental.. As I started my outside Christmas lights, it took me back to 1976.
