Happy 12th Birthday to jb @ The Hits Just Keep On Comin'. OK, he's really older than that, but he was born on a leap year and he only gets to celebrate his birthday on the actual day of his birth every four years.

Jim and I have known each other since our college days when we were partnered on the production staff at WSUP. When I go back to Wisconsin to visit my son, Jim and I try to get together for a brew or two. With his knowledge of music, he would be a great teammate on a trivia team.

If you ever get to Madtown on a weekend, catch Jim on 93.1 The Lake. You'll be glad you did.

My friend, make it a great day and crank this tune in honor of every Wild Night we all shared together at the 'Vous.

Since the extra day we get every four years is only an hour away, I thought this would be a good time to share a couple of special compilations.

Midnight Mix I

Midnight Mix II

The first mix and part of the second was from Lisa. The rest of II was from me.

Records Alert! Records Alert!

John Records Landecker and Turi Ryder, who've been marketing themselves as a talk show team, turn up as guest morning hosts all next week on west suburban Chicago WERV-FM (95.9), the NextMedia Group classic hits station known as The River.

Interesting read over at The Hits Just Keep On Comin' from jb concerning Van Morrison and Prince utilizing Web Sheriff to keep any references to them off all websites. What a shame!

Caught in the middle is King Harvest, whose song "Dancing In The Moonlight" has a title similiar to but clearly not the same as Morrison's "Moondance." King Harvest WANTS their songs played on individual's websites.

In their honor, I will do just that times two.

"Dancing in The Moonlight" by Baha Men (better known for "Who Let The Dogs Out")

The Super Bowl Super Parties were off the hook. I ended up going to three...Leather and Lace 2008 on Friday at the Scottsdale Galleria Corporate Center, Playboy's Super Saturday Night at The Pavillion at Wild Horse Pass next to the Giants' hotel in Chandler, and The Sunday After-Party hosted by P. Diddy at the Glendale Civic Center.

The best of the trio was Playboy's mega-event. I met a Bunny from 1984 and she was still smokin'. One of the ladies she was talking with looked just like Stacy Keibler. I know it wasn't, but we all might be seeing a lot more of this Bunny-in-training in the not too distant future.

The highlight of my night was when I got to high-five Hef and The Girls Next Door when they came into the building. I picked the right table between the buffet and the back entrance and they walked right past me. Security looked pissed when I stuck out my hand, but there was little they could do. I also saw former Giant Tiki Barber and Craig Jackson of the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auctions, but missed Alyssa Milano and Candice Michelle.

Now that the Super Bowl has passed, it's time to focus on Valentine's Day. Get with that special someone and put on my hot Valentine Mix. It'll definitely get you in the mood for the dance of love.
