Wt 4, 1974

Though nobody remembers but me, I was on Western Trip 4 in the storied summer of 1974. We listened to Richard Nixon's resignation on a radio while sitting in the corn bin at the Jensby farm in Webber, Kansas. Woody Belkin, our trip director, wrote a great national anthem for Prussia -- why he did that I don't know, but it was definitely an example of performance art. What he had in mind was the anthem being sung at a baseball stadium, where the crowd would be divided in two, half singing the melody and the other half doing a kind of surly basso continuo part that involved just singing the word "prussia" over and over again. The anthem ended with a crazed woman in the middle of the stadium shrieking and making the whole thing stop.

One of my most vivid memories was that one of the counselors, Howie, spent the whole trip talking about his own genitalia. I found this odd at the time, odder still when Howie told me on one occasion that radio was his "chosen field."

As if it was yesterday, I can recall thinking: Yeah, right. Like this LOSER is ever going to go anywhere in radio!!

Moral: I am certifiably the world's worst predictor of future success, particularly in the media business.

Howie Stern

Don't feel too bad. Years ago, I briefly dates one of the founders of MTV and I said to him, "Bad idea. Why would ANYONE want to WATCH radio?" Good thing he didn't listen to me, eh?

Off the topic of Howard Stern

I was on the WT 1970. We also stopped at Jensby's Farm (why did they let us stay there anyway?). I did not remember the name of the place until reading this thread about Howie. I remember going into Nebraska to go food shopping. Is there anyone out there that did this and do you remember the name of the town? I remember setting up our tents in 114 degree heat and melting. There was a farm hand there who claimed he had some loco weed but did not share. Were there some kind of caverns near there or am I confusing this with another stop? BTW, is there anyone out there that was on the '70 WT 2? This was the WT that had a tire blowout somewhere in the Rockies. The bus driver saved our lives by bouncing the bus into the mountain side to keep us from flying off into a canyon. Does anyone have memories of Mesa Verde or Crested Butte?
