I want to go on record in support of John Gard and his decision to keep Eric Moore's music alive. I first interviewed Eric Moore in 2002 and met John Gard in 2011. I interviewed Eric at least twice a year, up until his death. John Gard was the one who always set it up. Now, there's been a lot of chatter on the internet about who has the legal right to use The Godz trademark, and who the actual band members are. I will not challenge that, but what I can tell you, is that there would be no Godz without Eric. He didn't leave to form a solo project, nor did he leave to join another band. While many of the members chose to leave and not be a part of the group anymore, Eric and John kept it going. Even through Eric's illness, he kept performing, never abandoning, nor resurrecting The Godz, and who helped make that happen? John Gard did. He has my utmost respect and is not what former members of this band have said. Knowing Eric the way I did and hearing him talk about John Gard, he is only following the wishes of what Eric always wanted him to do. I have known John for many years. He is an honorable man that has no false intentions. So, don’t believe everything you hear or read. Yours truly, Mark After Dark .

Details below:

I would like to thank TURN UP YOUR RADIO/Radio World Tour for airing, The Mark After Dark Show. I would also like to thank Eric Wagner for the interview and the music that you created. You really did affect my life, and you will never be forgotten. I would also like to thank bassist Ron Holzer for appearing on the show, as well as for his time and patience. Many thanks to Mike Smith, Eric's manager, and of course, we must not forget Kenny Sehgal from Tee P*e Records for arranging these interviews. I would also like to acknowledge the hard work that my secret weapon, Andrew Berger, did putting all this together for me.

Before we lead into tonight's episode, on September 30, 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, I interviewed the iconic Eric Wagner, former lead vocalist of Trouble and currently of The Skull. My plan was to do a retrospective on Doom Metal and Stoner Rock. Eric came to my mind as an important figure in this style of music and without him it would have turned out to be a very bad episode. My original idea after doing the interview was to air it when the new Skull album came out. Unfortunately, that was not to be. Eric Wagner died from complications of COVID-19 in Las Vegas, on August 22, 2021, at the age of 62. This news came as a complete shock to me! So many fleeting moments as a fan came rushing through my head, I'm still having a hard time believing that he's really gone.

The Mark After Dark Show will air this Saturday on TURN UP YOUR RADIO/Radio World Tour at http://www.turnupyourradio.de,
8 PM CET Those of you living in the US, the show will air at 5:00 PM EST, here in New York City. 4:00 PM CST, and 2:00 PM PST. So, please join us.

I was first introduced to Raoul Nizzoli, by Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys at a Nashville P***y show. We shared the same heroes like Ronnie Van Zant and Bon Scott. It was an instant musical kinship. I had such a connection with him that we talked about music for the rest of the night. I almost forgot that I was backstage with Blaine and Ruyter! You have to be pretty damn special to do that. Soon after, we became Facebook friends, always talking about music. I said to him, "It's very rare to meet someone who idolizes the same heroes like I did." When I heard about his untimely death, it truly broke my heart. I just can't wrap my head around it. But, we all know that death never makes sense, said the Messenger. As a tribute to Raoul, The Mark After Dark Show will be putting together a tribute for him with some very special guests. Please keep Raoul's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. - Mark After Dark

Today we are remembering Waylon Jennings who passed away 20 years ago today.

We know that there will probably be some who will question why we would mention Waylon on a Rock and Roll site. The answer is very simple. Because he was Waylon Jennings. And then there's that whole Buddy Holly thing. Yeah, he was Rock and Roll. (For those of you who don't know, Waylon was Buddy Holly's bass player. Waylon was with Buddy in Clear Lake, IA but didn't get on the plane that night.)

Here is a nice picture of Waylon from 1959. Also in the picture is his buddy Buddy.

RIP Waylon. Yeah, we guess that outlaw business did get out of hand.

RIP : Howard .... What a Bummer !!
What A Talent ... I Loved The Guy !

Howard Hesseman, who made a career out of portraying off-the-wall characters, none more popular than the disc jockey Johnny Fever on the sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati, has died. He was 81.

Hesseman died Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Los Angeles of complications from colon surgery he first had last summer, his wife, actress and acting teacher Caroline Ducrocq, told The Hollywood Reporter.

A member of the San Francisco improv group The Committee and a real-life DJ back in the 1960s, Hesseman also was known for his stint as out-of-work actor turned history teacher Charlie Moore on the syndicated comedy Head of the Class. (He quit that show after four seasons to aim for a movie career.)

And on the ninth and final season of One Day at a Time, his character, architect Sam Royer, married longtime divorcee Ann Romano (Bonnie Franklin).

In other eccentric turns, Hesseman played hippies in Richard Lester’s Petulia (1968) and on NBC’s Dragnet (he was billed as Don Sturdy back then); a patient suffering from writer’s block on The Bob Newhart Show; a psychiatrist on Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman; a pimp opposite Dan Aykroyd in Doctor Detroit (1983); and a shock rocker in This Is Spinal Tap (1984).

Hesseman received Emmy nominations in 1980 and ’81 for his work on CBS’ WKRP in Cincinnati, which ran for four seasons (1978-82). With his shades, moustache and slouch, he became a countercultural icon.

Veteran TV director Jay Sandrich, who was hired to helm the WKRP pilot for MTM Enterprises, suggested Hesseman would be great for Fever after Richard Libertini said he couldn’t do it at the last minute. The two had just worked together on the ABC comedy Soap, with Hesseman playing a prosecutor out to convict Katherine Helmond‘s Jessica Tate of murder.

“Howard had at one time been a DJ,” Sandrich said in a 2001 interview for the website The Interviews: An Oral History of Television. “He just stepped in and killed it. He knew exactly what he was doing.”

Hugh Wilson, a former sales executive at a Top 40 radio station who created WKRP (the fictional station’s call letters were a pun on “W-crap”), based the rock DJ on “a guy I knew in Atlanta called Skinny Bobby Harper,” he once said. “That was funny, because he was the morning guy, so Skinny had to get up at 4 in the morning to get in there. But he also loved being in the bars at night. He was like Fever.

“In the pilot, I said [to Hesseman], ‘You’ve got to play it like you’re sleepwalking, because you should be asleep by 8, but 8 is just when you’re going out.’ “

The guy who would up playing Johnny Fever was perfect for hosting Saturday Night Live three times and for fronting music specials like 25 Years of Motown and Supernight of Rock & Roll.

Describing his iconic character in a in a 1979 interview with The New York Times, Hesseman said: “I think maybe Johnny smokes a little ma*****na, drinks beer and wine, and maybe a little hard liquor. And on one of those hard mornings at the station, he might take what for many years was referred to as a diet pill. But he is a moderate user of soft drugs, specifically ma*****na.”

He was born on Feb. 27, 1940, in Lebanon, Oregon. His father was an auto-parts salesman and a musician. His parents divorced when he was 5, and his mom married a cop.

After graduating from Silverton High School in 1958, Hesseman spent a couple of years at the University of Oregon, then was off to San Francisco, where he landed a gig as a disc jockey for the underground rock station KMPX. He then latched on with The Committee, where he took the Don Sturdy stage name.

He told the Times that he spent 90 days in the San Francisco County Jail in 1963 for selling an ounce of ma*****na (a conviction that was thrown out for entrapment). And in a 1983 profile in People, he did admit to conducting “pharmaceutical experiments in recreational chemistry.”

The Committee once had a long engagement on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, and he and other troupers made an appearance in Billy Jack (1971).

In Shampoo (1975), Hesseman played a lazy, boozy character known as Red Dog, then showed up in The Sunshine Boys (1975), Silent Movie (1976), The Big Bus (1976) and The Other Side of Midnight (1977).

In the WKRP pilot, which first aired on Sept. 18, 1978, his character introduces himself to newly hired program director Andy Travis (Gary Sandy) as Johnny Caravella. “I’m also known as Johnny Midnight, Johnny Cool, Johnny Duke, Johnny Style and Johnny Sunshine,” he says.

Johnny was fired from a Los Angeles station, where he was making $100,000 a year, for using the word “booger” on the air. That led him to embark on an odyssey that led to jobs in Amarillo, Texas; Denver; Boise, Idaho; Fargo, North Dakota; and then Cincinnati.

With WKRP switching to a Top 40 rock format, he christened himself Dr. Johnny Fever. After that series ended, he came back a few times for The New WKRP in Cincinnati, which had a couple of seasons in syndication.

Afterward, Hesseman kept busy with appearances in such films as Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment (1985), Heat (1986), Gridlock’d (1997), About Schmidt (2002), The Rocker (2008) and Halloween II (2009).

He also guest-starred as a judge on Boston Legal, a radio station manager on That ’70s Show, a former drug dealer on John From Cincinnati and a schoolmaster on Fresh Off the Boat.

In addition to his wife — they lived together for seven years before getting married in July 1989 — survivors include their godchildren Grace, Hamish and Chet.

Our Story

The MARK AFTER DARK SHOW is a radio show combining talk, comedy, interview, and discussion of the on-going history of great music. Featuring artists from the past as well as the present, our host Mark After Dark will take listeners on a musical journey incorporating interesting facts and information, interviews with the artists and, of course, the music itself. Following in the spirit of great radio and music journalism, Mark is a great listener, a walking rock and roll encyclopedia, and a life-long devoted fan of hard driving, straight ahead rock in all its many forms. Mark’s off the cuff, straightforward interviews offer refreshing insight into the music of today and yesterday, his comments, knowledge, and observations enhance the experience of being a real music fan. He will lead other music fans on a high-octane, late night road trip of riffs and rhythms; an all-night drive to a rock concert with a dedicated and informed music aficionado at your side. BIO: Who is Mark After Dark? Mark After Dark -"The Man Who Hates Everything, Except the Real Thing!”,has been a rock and roll and music enthusiast since his earliest childhood. From sneaking into AC/DC and Charlie Daniels concerts when he was a pre-teen, waking up with Ted Brown on WNEW AM, or walking to school with great DJ’s like Dave Herman on WPLJ FM, or Scott Muni on WNEW FM rocking his Walkman, Mark’s has truly been a life of music. Leaving home early to pursue life on the road with various bands, his time as a musician gave him the opportunity to tour all over the country and meet and perform with many who have since gone on to rise through the ranks of the music industry. Today, Mark’s enthusiasm for the art is expressed through his journalistic endeavors. He writes for “The New York Waste”, a local New York City newspaper with national distribution. Always controversial, he has received thousands of emails from readers who both love and hate his bold, opinionated, and passionate articles. These articles consist of reviews of current releases, shows in and outside of New York City, and interviews with many of Rock’s true legends. Mark After Dark made some of his finest discoveries in little-known clubs and reviewed them before any one else knew who these bands were: Nashville P***y, Queen V, The Donnas, and many more. Mark’s passion for music and his ability to forge alliances with the heroes of Rock and Roll have won him interviews and friendships around the music world. His controversial and brash style has earned him the honor of comparison to classic Creem Magazine’s Lester Bangs. In 1996 the first incarnation of the Mark After Dark show was born on two of New Yorks’ better known cable channels. Running late-night on Fridays, it has become a part of the New York rock scene, gathering many loyal fans. It was rated to be one of the top cable shows in 1999 by Timeout magazine Mark has been a devoted music fan for over 30 years.
