Dale Earnhardt Jr. Announces His Retirement

Junior Nation was sad to learn on Tuesday that the 42 year old is calling it quits after 26 wins and 19 seasons. Podcast partner Dennis Neal and I discuss his career and Jimmie Johnson’s win at Bristol. The pics below were shot by Dennis, with the exception of the head shot which was taken by podcast friend David Streetman Jr. at one of the many races we’ve attended together.

Scoop’s Vinyl Oddities: ‘The London Chuck Berry Sessions’

This vinyl oddity is notable for its closing moments when the London audience refuses to leave the concert venue after being whipped into a frenzy when Chuck Berry performs ‘Johnny B. Goode’ as an encore. The house announcer pleads with the crowd to exit after Chuck leaves the stage because a Pink Floyd concert is supposed to begin shortly, but the manic crowd just chants ‘We want Chuck!” over and over again.

Scoop’s Vinyl Oddities: Led Zeppelin’s ‘Song Remains The Same’ Box Set

I love this box set! 180 gram vinyl that sounds amazing with extra tracks like the outstanding live version of ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’. This is a scratch and dent copy I got on ebay for about $30. I could care less about the edge wear on the box because the vinyl sounds so fantastic! New copies can be found for as little as $50 on discogs, ebay, and amazon. One of my favorites from my collection.

WOUR Rock The Amp Headliner:Foreigner-Scoop’s Vinyl Oddities

This is my original well-played copy of ‘Double Vision’ along with an autographed copy of ‘Can’t Slow Down’ which my daughter bought at a Foreigner concert a few years ago. I’ve passed on my love of vinyl to her, and she even likes a classic rock band or three. WOUR’s Rock The Amp is July 11 at the Lakeview Amp with Foreigner, Cheap Trick, & Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com & livenation.com.
