  2. Greasespot Fundraiser 2017

    I could still use some more funding.
  3. Greasespot Fundraiser 2017

    Yes Grace you did it correctly, thank you. I usually send an email, but I was sick for a while and got behind on my duties. I appreciate the generosity, The site has been paid through July, including the renewal for the forum licence.
  4. Greasespot Fundraiser 2016

    As you can tell, the forums are updated thanks to the tireless work by greasytech. We ran into more than a few problems, but he got it all solved! For the time being, the document section is unavailable. The software doesn't work as it is outdated. That will be the next project. I don't have an ETA. But will keep you updated.
  5. Greasespot Fundraiser 2016

    The upgrade has been slow to implement. I finally have moved the site to the new server. Today I am upgrading the forum software. So please save any posts that you have made since midnight. And if you post today, copy that also. I took a copy of the site around midnight eastern time. The document part of the site is problematic. I will work on that after the forums. I apologize for the delay, transferring a web server is not something that I have done before. Since I haven't upgraded the software in a number of year, it is more difficult. I will keep you posted on the progress. Thanks again for all the generous support!

    Jim RIP I haven't talked to him in many years. When Greasespot was first started, he was doing a mailing list. He fought the good fight for people trying to escape from TWI. We were involved in a project to put up a billboard in New Knoxville. Someone Graffittied within hours after it was put up.

    I am helping with putting together some research about a suicide in Traverse City, MI in December, 1984. We would love anyone that lived in that area at that time that knows anything about it, to send me an email at pawtucket@greasespotcafe.com. The man that committed suicide was David Fear, married and Father of two. I appreciate any info you are able to provide and will be kept in the strictest confidence.

  11. Exciting News upcoming

    I know that I haven't been around much in the past year. I want to thank folks for keeping things going in my absence. Hap, Wordwolf, and Kit among others have been amazing in keeping me updated on the happenings of the forum. I had a number of personal things to attend to, including my brother Joe and his health. This week he finally received his double lung transplant. I wrote about it in the prayer forum if you would like details. Google cancelled our advertising revenue, they won't give me any details. I have been looking for alternative means of funding. I totally missed this year's anniversary, sorry about that. Two members (That I know of) of Greasespot have books completed, once I have more details, I will pass them on. There is a TV series coming out about Cults. I will post more when I have the info. I have a radio show, which I enjoy tremendously -- a life's dream. Working on an internet radio station project.

    About a year ago or so, I kept hearing the tail end of a song on the local FM station. It had a great hook but the dang DJ never said who it was at the end. I was driving each time and never remembered to call the station. A few months later, one of my High School Classmates called and asked me if I could get a band some airplay on the station where I do a show. Well it was the band that his son's best friend played in. I said sure, get me in contact with them. I emailed the lead singer and he mailed me a copy of their CD. I waited until I was driving to work to play it the next day. This was a great CD, very "Beatlesque" And then that song that I kept hearing the tail end of started playing!! I think I listened to it 50 times that week. I got in contact with one of the DJ's that does a very popular show in the evenings, she fell in love with the CD, hooked them up and they were on in a few weeks. I got to know all the guys in the band through facebook and emails. They sent me some songs that they were planning for their new album that they recorded last december. The CD was finally released this week. I went to see them in July at a club that is owned by one of the guys relatives. Although we had never met face to face, we knew each other right away. They did originals and covers, it was a very fun night. At the end of the show, I was talking to Keith Lead Singer and Ross the Bass player. I asked them what they thought of being guest DJ's on my show. They loved the idea. So they each put together 10 songs and recorded intros for them. I played the show a few weeks ago, it was a blast. Then last saturday, I went to see them and took my niece with me, she was feeling down, her dad isn't too well. Of course each of the guys come up and say Hi and I introduce them to her. She was amazed, "you know these guys?" "They are so dreamy" " I've never met anyone in a band before" It was a great gig, a little late for me, didn't get home until 3:30 in the morning. But Keith gave her the new CD and she was in heaven. Anyway, if you get a chance, check them out here They are going on tour next week, so if you want to hear some great new music, check out their tour schedule and see them if they are nearby. Okay that's my plug for the year. Thanks and now back to regularly scheduled programming.
