I got it! I went back to it and somehow changed the screen size.  Still don't know how I did it. LOL.

From what I have read here, I am so looking forward to this book. This author "gets it."

Is this the same short interview that we saw last week? Any additional footage?  Thanks for any info.

By far that was the best of the interviews. John is obviously comfortable talking with Stern and the seem to like and respect each other.

Lastly, I agree that both JM and SK should be very proud of this work that was a long time in the making and I wish them much luck with it in the future as it evolves. 

As far as the lack of involvement on this site and HW, I just feel that this one was never as user friendly as previous ones.  It seemed much harder to find subjects and recent posts.  Then we have had the problem of a few contributors who attack everyone who posts, so that drives many away.  I really appreciate Tony, Mike and Sharon who keep this updated with reviews and news and occasionally pictures.  It's not as active as the old days, but neither are a lot of us, lol!

Continuing here as I seem to be limited in the size of the message I can type. I plan to buy the deluxe package or request it as a Christmas gift. 

As far as the play goes, I think the story was very good, but a little slow in the very beginning as the characters were being introduced.  I read a lot of S. King and I know most of his books take 100-200 pages just to meet the characters! But it quickly grabbed our attention from there and held it for the rest of the play. The actors were very good and had fabulous voices and the band was perfect.  I even got a kick out of the music in the beginning before the play began as I heard some of the hymn that Miriam and Troy play during recent concerts.  The set was interesting with the performers being onstage the whole time and the center microphone, but I have to wonder how the original staging differed in Atlanta last year.  I wish I had been able to attend one of those shows. The songs were very good, in fact I wonder if there were a few that did not appear on the CD as it seemed like a lot more songs were in the play that I saw.  Again, I liked some of them much more as I saw them in the context of the play and some like Away From This World, (I think it was), Tear This Cabin Down and the Truth were instant hits. I can't help but wish that I could hear them in various stages of development as I am sure they have chauged much as the play was written.

Hi folks,

I'm here and reading and checking the messages every few days but I rarely post anymore as most of the regulars seem to have dropped out or gone to other types of social media which are faster and easier means of communication.  I however, have a dumb phone without even texting and a plugged into the wall old time slow computer in the basement which is not exactly the way I want to spend a lot of my time as I get older.

I enjoyed reading your reviews, and yes, I did attend the play in Akron last month and loved it.  I wish I had been able to attend another but that one was the closest to home.  If it makes another round anywhere closer, I will be sure to attend. 

We had front row balcony seats which I thought might be better than up front for a play. I have not yet bought the CD or book package as I wanted to see the play and be surprised.  I did listen, just once to the individual songs as they were posted on here for us to listen.  I did not want to become familiar with them.  I wasn't sure about a couple of the songs at that point, I can' even remember which ones they were, probably those of the characters that served to introduce themselves to the audience. However, in a stage setting, they made more sense and helped me to relate to those characters.  I do remember that I liked That's Me  and Truth right away.

Long time fan and long time club member here. I started out with records, then they stopped making them and I switched to tapes, then eventually to CDs when my husband finally gave in and accepted that we had to buy a CD player to get music.  For a long time I collected everything  JM that I could get on CD, and thanks to many friends and club members I was able to get quite a collection.  I also had every performance and interview on VHS.  Then, technology changed once again and and left me behind.  I think I reached the point of not wanting to go through any more copying and recording. I have an old desktop computer that is too slow to do much, a combo CD DVD player/recorder that I never had the patience to learn to use.  I guess I figured by the time I copied everything it would be obsolete anyway. An old dumb phone, no ipads, ipods,iphones, itunes, i anything.  In fact the kid gave me his old ipod and I spent a few minutes trying to copy stuff and decided that it wasn't worth it.  I could play the CD in the player or car and that was good enough. So now I can hardly even buy a CD. So I guess it's Video Killed the Radio Star for me, just Technology Killed the Mellencamp Fan is a little more relevant. The videos are collecting dust now.

I'm very excited about this! I didn't expect to get an exhibit so close to home, actually close to the kid's home.  I'll be there! Looking forward to it!
