This is my favorite “semi-span” that I sent to a list on my emails, and I just realized that it started with Leah Garchik; also, Maroon 5 was actually in town recently, at a promo at Stanford Shopping that I heard but did not see, “round midnight style”.
A fair number of people did “unsubscribe” over these. This is from May, 2004, eight years ago.
Leah Garchik reports in today’s San Francisco
Chronicle that Willie Mays received an honorary degree
from Yale last week.
That’s not really music news, but “Wow”!
Dr. Willie Mays!

Ok, but she also mentions in same column something
about a new music organization AciveMusic that had
Bonnie Raitt and Roy Rogers at recent benefit. That’s
music news. And new Rolling Stone has article
describing Maroon 5 shows at Dartmouth College and
Yale, you see. And both Yale president and Maroon 5
singer are named Levine. (Jews?). And Maroon 5 is
currently #24 on Billboard. And Dr. Willie Mays is
#24. Get it?
btw or edita: Dartmouth ended up following suit and giving Willie a degree as well.
