Charles Brown, Jackie Wilson, Jack Benny Close Out Christmas, Coupons

There was, or, is only one CHARLES BROWN, great blues singer/piano player with Johnny Moore’s group in the 40s and 50s, who disappeared for years only to emerge from obscurity, thanks largely to Danny Caron. I was lucky to live in the San Francisco area during that time of Brown’s reemergence and witnessed not only a great artist but a wonderful person who shared his colorful history and thoughts during his concert lovefests, circa 1990s. Christmas hasn’t been the same since Brown passed a few years back . …. Then we have the great JACKIE WILSON, Mr. ‘R&B Opera’ singer, who turned pop music into some incredible vocal gymnastics as we here in ‘O Holy night.’ Nice to be able to go back and bring back these greats from time to time.. Merry Crhistmas, Baby, as Chares would say.

        WELL,  It was a spendid Valentines Week for JB – who just happens to celebrate his 39th birthday every year on February 14 – –   in Heavenly Hills , CA, where he reaquaints with many of his old friends (you can still visit at  – like  JB at  where he enjoys his favorite music, movies and memories one doesn’t find much anymore in mainstream media.   )   There were Mary , George and Bob, ,   Dino and Frank and others . Rochestor was by Jack’s side the whole time…even got out the old Maxwell, pictured below (still not running well) for the occasion.

He must have gotten carried away with the DEAL!    Wine Dog  helped out , taking  the glass away Jack , who usually only has an occassonal toddy or highball.


It’s these deals.  You may remember years  ago when Jack nearly lost his life to a robber who demanded Jack’s money.  Now, he does’t have to be so cheap….  Jack, the old cheapskate that he is,  got involved in coupons  around 1980 when they were becoming popular (Valpak and Coupon Country coupons started mailing them). Ever  since,  Jack’s been a BIG saver – well, you know he always was  – but now he goes out of his way to use a coupon whenever he can.  (He’s gotten out of traffic tickets by offering cops coupons in exchange)  He even opened up coupon websites so he would never be without a particular coupon – and for his friends and all of you (Check out, to name a couple… He even helps out small businesses   advertise on these sites and other niche sites  via and

Now, how’s about a visit back to an earlier 39th birthday in 1969
