Tonight, a tribute to a huge rock 'n' roll hero of mine on the 1st anniversary of his passing. I was lucky enough to have met Lux and Ivy when playing a handful of gigs with the Cramps in the early punk days in the band I played in, the Slickee Boys. One year ago tonight, when I heard the news that Lux had died, I cried like a baby. I read about it at work on a web site. On the hour long drive home, I was remembering Lux and the crazy things he did onstage and his wonderful personality and wit. With each memory, I noticed I had a smile on my face cutting through and squeezing away the tears. This is how I will always remember Lux. He put many smiles on many faces during his lifetime! The anniversary fell on the night I do my show, so I saw this as a sign. I asked Kogar the Swinging Ape, one of the biggest Cramps fans and a man who has produced 13 volumes of Lux and Ivy's favorite songs to share with the world to give me the material for a proper tribute. He came through with flying colors and the result is in the music, interviews, horror movie clips, etc. contained in this show. Fantastic stuff!!! Visit Kogar's blog and say thanks. He has given all of the great lost rock 'n' roll religious relics that Lux and Ivy so cherished new life. i was coming down with the flu when I did the show and apologize for incorrectly stating that Mad Mike was a Cleveland dj. Of course, he was a legendary Pittsburgh, PA dj. Also, I forgot to back announce Ron Thompson's Switchblade.
