        I had a young operator mention to me last week that his dad was REALLY old…. then told me how old his dad actually was….. 2 years older than me.

          I was a forty five year old trainee.
          Now I am a fifty year old tech.
          People who are ten to fifteen younger boss me around.
          I don’t care.
          When it comes to politics fuck off old man.
          When it comes to work I will fucking listen intently.

            Great song. I’d totally forgotten about that one.

            It’s funny, I think he was ashamed of that one. I had to look long and hard to find it’s torrent.
            It’s not in his box set.
            I remember buying Night and Day in 1983 and walking it two miles home

            I remember getting the cassette tape of “Look Sharp” from a GF at the time (1985-1987) and I was so grateful.
            One of my best song memories is the playing of “stepping out” on the radio just as we while rolling up to L.A.’s Bonaventure Hotel on my way to take that same GF to dinner at the rotating restaurant at the top of that hotel called the “Top o’ Five”.
            I looked so cool getting my underages self and GF served alcohol with our dinner. 😉
            The 80’s were a magical time!
