An Observation
I was checking out the American Gramaphone web site this weekend, and I've noticed that they're making some changes. I could be wrong, but it looks as if they (A.G.) are changing their name to 'Mannheim Steamroller'. At least, the URL is changing to

I was there, verifying the link to The Real McCall: An American Storyteller. But I can't seem to find it! There is still a "Friends & Family" section, but C.W.'s CD doesn't seem to be listed. I have posted inquiries about these changes.

Random Thoughts
Miscellaneous items that have been occupying my waking moments...

Convoy: The Game. Yet another board game. Trucks used for tokens; movement determined by a spin of the 'CB dial'. Possible action cards: "Bear in the Air. Lose one turn." "You're in the rocking chair. Hammer down for three spaces."

You Know You're A C.W. McCall Fan When

The C.W. McCallculator. Gives the distance between any two points of reference in C.W. McCall songs.

A Puzzlement
In "Classified", C.W. bought a '57 Chevy pickup from a guy named Bob. C.W. drove the Chevy to the Conoco station. Whatever happened to the vehicle in which C.W. drove to Bob's?

Thanks to Steve Mizar for bringing up that question.

Happy Birthday To Bill
Just a reminder: only three weeks until the anniversary of Bill Fries' birthday, which is 15 November. You can write to him at P.O. Box E, Ouray, CO 81427-0589; but anything sent to "C.W. McCall, Ouray, CO 81427" will find its way to Bill. He'll be 71 this year.
