Gary Puckett, The Del-lords, and Life After Death with Forrest J Ackerman on the Next Dave White Presents!
"Young Girl." "Lady Willpower." "Woman, Woman." "Over You."
From 1967 to 1970, Gary Puckett was the centerpiece of the power ballad hitmakers, the Union Gap. Clad in Civil War uniforms, the group's versatile musicianship revolved around Puckett's distinctive, warm tenor voice and a band good enough to trade instruments on stage.
All these years later, Puckett is still at it! This summer, he joins Flo and Eddie (The Turtles), Chuck Negron (Three Dog Night), Mark Lindsey (Paul Revere and the Raiders), and Gary Lewis (The Playboys) in the "Happy Together" tour appearing in 53 cities. On Tuesday, June 18, find out what happens when all these old timers hit the road again and go back in time as Gary shares some stories of the '60s with you on the new DWP! Is there a new album in the works?
The Del-lords are a different breed of roots rock. Back in the '80s, with veterans of The Dictators and Joan Jett's Blackhearts coming together, The Del-lords became East Coast cult favorites with deserved critical acclaim for their 4 studio albums. Now, three of the original members have reunited to release The Elvis Club, and album that should convince you rock and roll will never die!
On the next DWP, principal singer and songwriter Scott Kempner has lots to say about The Dictators, the first albums by The Del-lords, and The Elvis Club. If you're into the Heartbreakers or The Eagles, this is the music for you—and of course we'll play two kick out the jams samples! One of them, co-written by Kempner with the legendary Dion, is based on an extraordinary story about the night the music died . . .
Who coined the term, "sci-fi"? It was Forrest J Ackerman, editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland and co-creator of Vampirella. He died on December 4, 2008. But is Forrey still speaking to us from the grave?
On May 15, "The Life After Death Project" aired on the SyFy network where writer, producer, and director Paul Davids presented evidence that he's among those Ackerman has sent messages to from the other side. Davids' documentary has been described as "A mesmerizing CSI-caliber quest for proof of life after death. Four New York Times best-selling authors, three top science professors and three well-respected mediums make a leap into the unknown, investigating astonishing evidence in the case of apparent `After Death Communication.'”
The film, and its new sequel, are now available on DVD. Find out what mysteries are explored when Davids shares his stories with you, along with the music of Gary Puckett and the Del-lords, on Tuesday, June 18, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over--
