As discussed, for anyone who wants to "introduce" themselves further to other board members. I'd say I'll go first but Robb K has already used the two threads he started here (hockey and baseball) to provide a good bit of his background and interests in sports (Robb, pls feel free to add on here with other aspects if so so incliined, e.g., your music career (love to hear more).

As for me (will use bullet form for easier reading):

On-Topic Musical Highlights

- Irving Feld's Greatest Show of Stars for 1957 and 1958
- James Brown at the Howard Theater

Sports Interests
- Baseball, Hockey, Football and Basketball (more college than pro with the latter two these days)
- Reminiscing about 1950s and 1960s teams and players

Other Interests

Small World, eh?  My father got his South L.A. grocery store inventory almost exclusively from C.G.C. from 1965-1980.  I worked in that store during my undergraduate years.  My favourite baseball player was Hank Aaron, and my co-favourite basketball players were Elgin Baylor and Michael Jordan.  Can't pick one favourite singer, but Nat Cole is one (MOR like Johnny Mathis).  I hate to see people hurt others, and animals and The Earth, out of selfishness.  So, we are similar there, as well.

Born and raised in Pennsylvania Hard Coal country (Schuylkill County).  Now, live in Waynesboro, Pa (on the Pa/Md border near Gettysburg).  
No doo-wop music for me at all as a kid except for what I got to hear on American Bandstand or on late night radio (WKBW, WLS, etc) and the VGH tunes at that time were simply mixed in as "rock'n'roll" songs being played (rock'n'roll at that time to me was "anything new that my parents didn't listen to).

Family: wife (47 years), two grown sons

School:
-Stevens Trade .. Lancaster PA. after High School
-Austin Peay State U .. A.A. degree during Army career
-U of Maryland .. B.A. degree during Army career

Work:
-U.S. Army - 1962 through 1985.  Assignments with the White House and with the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  Two tours in Europe(Germany and Germany/Belgium), one tour in Okinawa, tours in the US (NJ, SC, Maryland, New Mexico, Kentucky).  Also, numerous temporary assignments worldwide (Hawaii, Trinidad, Canada, and all over the US.)
-Credit Card/Banking jobs (Citicorp, First Data Corp) - 1985 through 2001 including assignments in Dominican Republic
-Medically Retired - 2002

Travel:
-While in the Army,  personal travel in Europe (most European countries, including Yugoslavia, England, and Denmark),  personal travel in Far East (Okinawa, Taiwan, Korea), and all around the US.
-Personal travel after Army retirement,   Ireland, China, Mexico, Canada, all over the US including Alaska and Puerto Rico)
-Cruise ship travel,  all the standard island destinations in the Caribbean, as well as New England and Canadian coasts)

Fun Stuff:
-Internet DJ since my 33K dial up modem days (approximately 1996) at various fledgling Internet stations before the Internet Radio boom started
-Discovered doo-wop as a unique genre VERY late in life (1999) at an online Yahoo group which was cofounded by four people, two of which were Bruce Woolf & Frank Pellicone
-Started KSDW Internet Radio Station (2000) for the predecessor of the present Doowop Cafe Internet club.  DJed and managed the station until about 2010
-Since 2006,  Internet DJ at/in Second Life (an online virtual world community), playing a wide variety of music (mostly oldies and doo-wop) at various 'virtual club' venues, like "Runaround Sues", "Doowops Forever", "Winddragon Isle", etc.

Born and lived in the Bronx until 1985, been in West Melbourne Fl since. Was very smart when young, skipped a couple of grades and graduated from high school at 16. I did 1 1/2 years of junior college but found out girls were more fun to the dismay of my mother.
   I had a pigeon coop for 10 years and ended that because girls were more fun to the dismay of my pigeon coop partner, my cousin.
   Worked as a draftsman/mechanical designer on early space programs, then into real estate as a salesman then broker. Lastly in N.Y. as a manager for a home improvement chain that eventually went belly up...[but not because of me]. In Florida helped my rich brother-in-law build 68 houses in 2 years, then 18 yrs as a flooring estimator and salesman until 2005.
   Married my 1st wife in 1959 not knowing she was carrying another guys baby which ended in a messy divorce.......I got even.......married her sister and been together 51 years.
   Found VGH in 1953 or 54 when I first heard Gee/I Love You  so/Shoo Doo Be Doo in to the dismay of my mother and father and their Guy Lombardo tendencies. I was the guy all my friends came to for questions about the music. I was the guy everybody learned from and now, on this forum and the knowledge I have learned from the guys and Shandy is what motivates me every morning to click on this site.
   Thanks to all who contributed to my knowledge base.

DWD,

- Not sure exactly what a "box boy" is but, as a part-time job after HS, I worked at an A&P. Worked in the store's receiving area and then stocked the store shelves after hours. Used a box cutter to rip into boxes; so, if you've ever gotten a box of cereal with a slashed top, you know how that happened! Actually liked that job coz you didn't have to deal with obnoxious customers.

- Grandpa Doowop. Gotta love that. Love my grandchildren but I'd have to give 'em a seminar on what doowop is. A losing battle, I think, in my case. Oldest grandson is a deejay who spins EDM (that Electronic Dance Music, for the uninitiated). Music that is all about "beats per minute." Only 16, he makes pretty good $$.

Robb, Couldn't bring a quote of your bio into play here due to exceeding 2500 characters, but:

Sounds like you could write a pretty darn interesting book! Talk about diverse experiences and interests!

I love Holland but man those North Sea beaches are COLD! Been to Scheveningen twice (summers, 30 years apart) and froze my rear off both times. English beaches were just as cold (why they all holiday in Ibiza, Costa del Sol or Canary's) when I lived there 1985-88.

Big Jack,

So we're not too far apart geographically. I live now right outside Annapolis, MD. My daughter lives in Danville, Pa. -- up the Susquehanna River.

I often listened those same 50,000 watters late at night -- WKBW in Buffalo and WLS in Chicago. Dick Biondi, Danny Neverth, Tommy Shannon, etc., all great DJs.

You may have come to the music late in life but sounds like you were brought into it by two experts!

Doowopjoe3 (there's two others??). Thankfully, not on this board. Colorful life up till now (and I like the way you write about it). Best is yet to come, right?

Think you are dead on with what you say about what we all learn here. I keep hearing about other music forums on this or that social media site but I can't imagine they are better than this.

I know I've seen several movies/TV shows about guys with pigeon coops on roofs. Of course, the character Brando portrayed in On the Waterfront was the most famous movie pigeon keeoer. Then there was Jimmy Smits' character on NYPD Blue. And, I think it was Forest Whitaker in the film, Ghost Dog. Obviously, Hollywood finds that hobby/vocation extremely interesting. I know, as a viewer, I did. See those??

JoeC - a box is what is now known as a bagger.  I used to bag groceries when the shoppers checked out.  I have a collection of box cutters, used to always have one in my back pocket for protection until 9/11.  I stocked also and was deadly with my box cutter.

To all - forgive my duplicate entry, don't know how I did that.  You'll notice I've asked one of the Administrators to delete one of them for me.

Don't give it a thought DWD.

As Mike told me when I offered to delete my OT posts on the music/oldies board, only an administrator can do that. But ... tonight, I mistakenly replied on a hockey subject to doctordoowop and did so on the Member Intro thread here. So, I just copied what I'd written, then highlighted the copy, and deleted it, It got rid of it. I then went to the Hockey thread and pasted the hockey content there. If you look down below in this thread you'll see what went on.

I lived for 38 years on the 2nd to last street in Den Haag towards the ocean and Scheveningen.  Madurodam (the miniature model of all of The Netherlands), Westbroek Park and The Scheveningse Bosjes (forest preserves) are between, before Scheveningen.  I used to ride my bicycle there almost every day, and  ride it or run through the sand dunes to build up my leg strength.  Did you see the bronze statue of "De Visservrouw" along The Strand there?  My great aunt was the model who posed for it.  I used to run in the woods while composing my stories in my head.  Our summers have a lot of clouds fog and rain, especially over the last 7 years.  I think it's one of the effects of Global Warming.

I've been a lot of places, and only spent the 1st 2 years of my life on the same continent all year long.  I haven't spent as much as 1/2 year in the same country for over 40 years.  That's a major contributor to why I never got married, and why I have no children or grandchildren.  So you can't have it all.  You live like a Gypsy, you don't get the benefits of being in one place most of the time.  I often wake up in the morning wondering in which country and continent I am (and usually it's not the same one as in my dream just before waking).  Cheesy

Joe C....When I switched from dial-up to broadband I was told there was a doowopjoe already {On youtube}. It was suggested that I could use 1or 2. I was born 3/3 @ 3am, mom youngest of 3 sisters, dad oldest of 3 brothers.1 or 2 had no chance. I did see a couple of movies with pigeon coops. My mainly Italian neighborhood in the NE Bronx was loaded with coops, it was like a right of passage. My father, uncles and best friend all had coops. I was 8 yrs old with my first one with 7 pigeons {A gift from my uncle} and stopped @18 with between 150/175 birds at times. It left me with great memories and a diagnosis that my constant bouts of "Pink eye" was caused by constantly cleaning pigeon poop out of the coop. {Truth}

There's a video out there of The Drifters singing on the rooftop (guess which song?) in which one of them takes pigeons out of the rooftop coop and hands them to several of the other members to hold and stroke. For some reason, every time I see it I cringe a little as I always think the pigeons will be crushed somehow. Not that I really give a darn about pigeons, but that's how it goes.

Tanner's Market.  It was on Montclair St, between 28th St. and Adams Blvd.  The great 1965 Black Panther/LA police shootout was a less than a hundred yards north on Adams and Montclair.
