I am well aware of Springstein, My wife and I drove past the Stone Pony last summer. He recorded Born To Run about 10 minutes from my house in Orangeburg NY. He used the same studio that Janis Ian used to record, At 17. I attended a recording session their in the 1970's when I worked in local radio. I've been with one of the major US radio network's since 1978 so you could say that radio is my life, hi hi. I'm guessing that we won't hear any news concerning the priority act until he congress resumes after the new year. Speaking of apartments, I was lucky. I lived on the top floor of a 6 story apartment in the early 1980's. When I asked the landlady for a top floor apartment her response to me was, Oh, so you like a nice view (we were right on the Hudson river). I said yes but what I meant was that I wanted to be close to the roof so I could put up antennas and the super let me. I had a mini quad and other antennas that allowed me to operate 80-10 meters plus a 2 meter beam. I worked Father Moran in Nepal from there. I was very fortunate and went from Novice to Extra while living there. My radios were a Hallicrafters HT44 and a National NC303. Eventually I bought a TS 520SE. Back to Sprinstein, I like certain things he did but not a big fan. I prefer more urban music and group harmony music from the 1950's. To each there own, I guess.
