    If you have been watching the left sidebar, you have seen that I’ve featured Dean Friedman for the past several days.  I have his original album from 1977, now if only I had a turntable that worked.

    So I was delighted when Dean reached out to me:

    Hi Professor,

    Just wanted to say hello and thanks for the video-song plug on your blog
    this week.

    And in light of the dark topic of the day, thought you might be curious
    to hear an obscure track of mine, titled, ‘The Wind Blows‘, written for
    the three 11 year old students on AA Flight #77, which crashed into the
    Pentagon on 9/11. It was their 1st flight.

    Thanks for listening.

    All the best,


    Here is the song to which he was referring:

    I also very much enjoyed this interview with the BBC:

    Dean’s website, where you can learn more about him, is worth a visit.

    I played Ariel over and over again when I was a DJ at WOKY in Milwaukee

    Professor, you can get a turntable that connects to your computer via USB and free audio recording software (I use "Audacity" regularly) to digitally record the audio from the LP. I'm currently working on cleaning up the pops and clicks from my LP of the soundtrack to one of the strangest hippie Westerns ever – "Zacharaiah."
