We got to thinking in the office about the first albums we ever bought or received and the first concerts we ever attended and thought it would be fun to share. Enjoy our nostalgic (and sometimes embarrassing) trips down Memory Lane:
First Albums: Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis, much to his father’s chagrin.
First Concert: Neil Diamond and the Young Rascals outside (it rained) at Chippewa Lake. Circa 1965, Jerry was donning his Beatle boots and matching haircut.
First Cassette Tape: “Thriller” by Michael Jackson, a christmas present.
First Concert: The proper first was Jimmy Eat World at the Symposium with about 12 others in attendance. But the first BIG experience was Green Day at Blossom, when the rowdy crowd made headlines by tearing up the grass.
First Album: ELO, a christmas present.
First Concert: Shaun Cassidy at the Richfield Colliseum with her family.
First Album: Claimed some of her older brother’s albums, like “Thriller,” “Chipmunk Rock” and “Urban Chipmunk,” but the first album of her very own was “More of the Monkees.” Yes it was vinyl…while she could have bought the cassette tape, the album had bigger pictures. Purchased at Musicland in the mall with a $10 (paper) gift certificate circa 1985.
First Concert: Weird Al Yankovic at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair. Her mother had to assure her it was “really him,” as she couldn’t believe a famous person had come to her town. He put his left foot behind his head and jumped on his right leg, and when someone in the crowd threw him a banana, he ate it…without peeling it.
We hope you’ll comment and share your memories!

JUNGLE JAM TO ROAR INTO HOB FOR WORTHY CAUSE
Local Bands Star in Benefit for Bone Marrow Disease Research
Jungle Jam, a rocking benefit for bone marrow disease research, comes to Cleveland’s House of Blues (HOB) on Friday, October 17, 2008. Several well-known local bands will play between 6:30 p.m. and midnight.
Heart & Soul, Blues de Ville, Eclyptic, Horizontal Party and Rusnak Jarrett Jazz will share their unique sounds on the HOB stages. In addition to live music, Jungle Jam will feature a silent auction and special guest appearances. The ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres and drinks.
Proceeds from this unique event will benefit research for bone marrow diseases being conducted at Cleveland Clinic by Dr. Jaroslaw Maciejewski, one of the world’s foremost specialists. Bone marrow diseases are non-contagious, rare and potentially fatal illnesses in which blood production in the marrow is disrupted. Complications can arise, including the inability of blood to clot and susceptibility to infections. Right now, the only cure is a bone marrow transplant.
Jungle Jam was created by Jeff and Sherri Kitzberger of Cleveland Heights, whose 8-year-old daughter, Annalyse, was diagnosed with two bone marrow diseases in 2005.
Jungle Jam promises to be an upbeat, fun-filled event for a worthy cause. Tickets start at $125 and are available now and at the door. For ticket information, call 216-297-9062 or visit www.makeithappen4bmd.org.
