We welcome Bud Becker back to the show for the third time! Bud has been gracious enough to visit us twice to talk about his experiences as the talent coordinator at the legendary Hammerjack's in Baltimore Md. However, for many years prior to that, he worked as a concert promoter and a tour coordinator for many top acts of the 1960's and 70's. He and his late wife (Whom he nicknamed "St. Luna") produced a number of CDs that Bud was selling on eBay called "Memories of the Road" and "Memories Before the Road" that told the stories of him working with these top acts. Today, we will hear his story of "The Doors" performing at the Alexandria Roller Rink in Alexandria, Va. on August 18, 1967. At the beginning of the episode, Bud answers a few questions about the show, and the CD he released with his memories about that show, and then we will play the CD in it's entirety. Bud has been good enough to let Fowl Players Radio share these with all of you, our listeners. The CD includes Bud's memories of creating the show, as well as some phone interviews of some bands that opened the show for "The Doors" and others that were there. I think you will find this episode very interesting, and I thank Bud Becker for being willing to share this bit of Rock-n-Roll history with us.
