Book Excerpt Below:Chapter entitled: (The Right Place, The Right Time) Joe Jefferson and I were instructed by Kenny Gamble to go to CBS Records recording company offices first to pickup the artwork for The Three Degrees first album on the PIR recording label. This would be an incredible day to be remembered. Yes, this would be a very exciting, and a very special day for both of us. Joe Jefferson looked at me, and said, “Brucie baby, we are now going to The Big Apple! Ha,” Joe shrieked to himself. And then he chuckled. When Joe had finished his inner celebration, he said, “This is really great Bruce!” Then Kenny interrupted Joe. He was also laughing pleasantly, and smiling with us. Then he said, “It’s a one day trip. You’ll go in the morning. And don’t forget to pick up your Amtrak tickets from Mary Smoatries. She has them for you now in her office.” We both thanked Kenny and he left our office. “Where is CBS Records, in New York City Joe," I asked? He simply replied, “Don't worry about it Bruce. I have been there before. And I will show you personally where we will have to go.” Suddenly, our thoughts and conversation were interrupted as the phone rang. I answered the office phone. “Hello,” I answered. The voice at the other end of the phone-call shouted out my name and said, “Bruce? Bruce! Let me talk to Joe.” It was Charles Simmons.
Chris Gursche describes his work as Clean Comedy; intelligent, yet funny. Biting. Sarcastic at times. Insightful. Occasionally edgy. Occasionally over the line, across the rumble strips, over the shoulder, through the guard rail, down the hill, and wrecked up in the creek at the bottom. Oh well. Everybody loves a good train wreck. Excepting, of course, Amtrak passengers.
