After I finished getting NCR books, I was working the day shift out of San Marcos when the phone rang.
It was Adrienne. Yeah, Adrienne. Cool glass of water out of Ventura. Adrienne. See. She got with Spence and they got themselves a little ole’ radio show. KVTA-AM1520. Ventura’s only drive-time talk news music and…
Well, you know the drill. Adrienne and Spence wanted Ike. Yeah. Ike. Ike Turner. You know Ike. Father of rock and roll. Had a little thing with Tina. Big guy with a big bass. They wanted Ike to spice up the deal. Shake, rattle and roll some cages. Spill the beans. Tell it like it is.
Now, me. I seen Ike. Seen him around town, don’t you know. At the Panda Gardens. The Power Surge. Going down San Marcos Boulevard. East and West. But you know what. Hadn’t seen Ike for a dog’s age.
