Ian Whitcomb passes

I had no idea that he had such a varied and interesting career, both in music and in writing.

Always loved "You Turn Me On".

In the 80s, CKLW had an oldies segment with a request line.  I dialed the number never dreaming anyone would answer.  Well, they did and I requested "You Turn Me On."  The DJ's were excited that I chose such an obscure song.  We chatted on the line for several calling from Ohio, did that mean I was a Buckeye fan?  I assured them I was a Michigan fan.   And a Spartan fan for that matter...well, unless Michigan played the Spartans and I was all Michigan.  They got a kick out of that.  To me, I was just nervous and didn't know when to close my mouth.  And yes, the entire Big 8 listening area heard it all on their radios.
