Random Thoughts of the Day

The #7 train gave me aggravation today.  It did not run from Queensborough Plaza to Times Square.  Thus, I had to get off at 74th Street and take the E to Penn Station to pick up my New Jersey Transit train.  It is bad enough  when they do it on weekends, but on a weekday the crowds at the transfer points are horrendous.  I can blame the rain for this.
New York radio personality Danny Stiles passed away at age 87.  He was certainly a rarity in this era of radio programmers looking for a younger audience.  He played music from the 1920s to the 1950s.  He was on the air on WNYC and other AM radio stations.  Check out his web site.

Out of a sense of loyalty I bought 4 more tickets to Met games in addition to the 6 games that I bought in a package a few weeks ago.  If I survived the early 1960s, late 1970s and early 1990s, I guess I can put up with the problems caused by the Wilpons and the Maddoff.

 Bridge Over Troubled Water: 40th Anniversary Edition that I bought from arrived today.  It includes the  CD and  a DVD that has a 1969 CBS TV Special that aired only once, and a "behind the scenes" documentary on the making of the album.  Now I have to find the time to listen.
