Bobby “Boris” Pickett, famous for his “Monster Mash” Halloween anthem, used to visit with me nearly every Halloween in studio, before he died in April of 2007! The story behind his creation of “Monster Mash” is a recall of radio & record artists working together to literally create a hit song overnight! “Monster Mash” debuted on the charts in early October of 1962, and by Halloween, it was #1! It was back on the charts in 1970, and then appeared a record-setting 3rd time on the charts, and even hit the top 10 in 1973!

What would you do with your life if money was no object? An amazing lecture from the late Alan Watts. Watts was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and proponent of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. He moved to the United States in 1938 and began Zen training in New York, received a master’s degree in theology, and became an Episcopal priest. In 1950, he left the ministry, moved to California, and joined the faculty of the American Academy of Asian Studies. Watts wrote more than 25 books and articles on subjects important to Eastern and Western religion, introducing the then-burgeoning youth culture to The Way of Zen (1957), one of the first bestselling books on Buddhism. His legacy has been kept alive by his son, Mark Watts, and by many of his recorded talks and lectures that have found new life on the Internet, like this one about money!
Self-driving cars hitting the road for research, as carmakers and tech companies race to develop the potentially life-saving technology. “We are at probably the largest transformative moment in the history of the automobile,” Mark Rosekind, head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Rosekind says one of the biggest hurdles will be the trust of consumers. “If they read or suspect in any way that they literally could be one virus away from a crash occurring, they’re not going to get in that car…not going to buy it, they’re not going to let it drive them. That whole future evaporates”!
