the 700 club

According to the Blogger "dashboard," this is my 700th post. It's taken me just under 20 months to get to this point. In my first month of blogging, I tried writing a few short posts a day. Now I've settled into a routine of posting once daily. I met blog reader Pam Mc at a remote broadcast today. When she first discovered this blog, she went back and read every post in the archives, leaving comments on several of them.

The milestone has got me thinking about blog posts I never wrote. Several weeks ago I noticed a concert listing on Pollstar. It said that one of my favorite rockers, George Thorogood was coming to Knoxville. I correctly assumed that he would be playing at "Sundown in the City." Now I wish I had posted my little scoop before today's official announcement.

I chose not to write about two big local stories because they have been so well covered in other blogs that I read. My readers outside Tennessee may want to catch up on the love triangle murder case and the reaction to Peyton Manning's appearance on "Saturday Night Live."

Lastly, may Phyllis West rest in peace. She was on the air at the local classic rock station, which was in the same building as the oldies station where I worked. She did nights and I did mornings so we would only see each other at full staff meetings when they pushed the Fish Philosophy on us. I didn't know Phyllis that well but I do know she was much too young to die.

Congrats on # 700. I've only been reading your blog regularly since last fall, but I do enjoy it. I give you a lot of credit for posting something daily.

It was so nice to finally meet you too Frank, you are WAY smaller in person than you look in your pics. Keep up the good work. I still read you daily, I just don't comment as much. Again, good to finally see you. :)

By "WAY smaller," do you mean thinner, shorter or just less impressive overall?

I mean in stature. You've lost so much weight! You're very impressive in person. I enjoyed talking to you, sorry we didn't have more time. :)
