Oregon’s Hello to Obama

Here is the first musical I wrote. Kenny Reed was performing a Obama song before that.

kennyreed9While in a nightclub of a friend, I suggested to Rick Cobian we produce a inaugural celebration. He and Kenny Reed had just done a song about Obama and had played it several times. “Hey Obama!” was the extent of the words. I gave Kenny these words and called around town to see if I could gather some performers on short notice. At the time, Kenny, Rick and I were partners in the Bohemian Bank, based upon my ideas to change the American economy that was based upon the ‘Get Hippie’ religion of the right-wing idealogues who have brought our government and our economy to a halt.

We chose the Bakery, and I brought the Rosamond print to put on the bare wall. That is Marilyn Reed singing chorus, and Izzy Whetstine the Prankster poet who also read at the Granary.
