Ron Eckerman was an early pioneer in the concert industry. In 1973, he began producing concert tours and created a concert lighting / tour management company, Clear light Enterprises. The organization toured with the top bands of the era: Fleetwood Mac, Peter Frampton, Willie Nelson, WAR, Humble Pie, Foghat, Alvin Lee, Waylon Jennings, Trapeze, Montrose, Gary Wright, and many others.
In 1976, he took on the challenge of managing Lynyrd Skynyrd tours, and witnessed and participated in their meteoric rise to fame and worldwide acclaim. After recovering from the tragic plane crash that put an end to the original Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eckerman went on to produce in television, film, and stage, and taught theater and artist management at Santa Monica College.
What a show! Tonight we welcome the original drummer for the band Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Burns who will share some fun stories from Skynyrd's early years, and take calls from fans.

Tonight we welcome back and old friend as surprise guest co-host! Our special guests tonight is the band HORNBUCKLE. Brian & Michael Hornbuckle cut their teeth with their father, Denver blues guitar legend Bobby Hornbuckle, on stage as his back up band. In 1996 Bobby “went home.” Michael put down the sticks and inherited his dad’s Gibson; perhaps a piece of Bobby’s soul and his ability to play guitar came along with it. Since then, the blues rockers have shared stages with everyone from the Doobie Brothers (at Red Rocks Amphitheatre) to The Allman Brothers, Ted Nugent, Joe Walsh, Gov’t Mule, Styx, Bad Company, Z.Z. Top, B.B. King, Def Leppard, Lynyrd Skynyd, James Brown and list goes on. We are happy to have the guys on as our special guests tonight during our final Blogtalk broadcast.
On tonight's show, we talk about volleyball, NBA All-Star Weekend, and Mammoth Tusks. We'll also talk about true love, and play a round of "Have You Ever?". We'll finish the show off with dueling Top 7 Lists: Aaron's list of the Top 7 Weezer Songs and Big Steve's list of the Top 7 Skynyrd Songs. Good times.
We are running this show in honor of Coach Skinner tonight , who passed away last week.
"That old high-school coach died Monday in a nursing home in Jacksonville, Fla., at 77, but his rules and his name will live forever in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.
For those unfamiliar with the story, Leonard Skinner was the former basketball coach, assistant football coach and gym teacher at Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville. When he was coaching and teaching in the late 1960s, the school's dress code didn't permit boys to wear long hair.
"My father was a very strict disciplinarian," said Skinner's daughter Susie Moore. "Rules were black and white. There was no gray area. He did things by the book. That's what he stood for."
One day in his gym class, Skinner noticed that Gary Rossington, a guitarist in a rock 'n' roll band, had hair that flowed well below his collar. Skinner sent Rossington to the principal's office, and he was suspended from school. Rossington, lead singer Ronnie Van Zant and the rest of the band members changed their name to "Lynyrd Skynyrd" as a mocking tribute to the stern gym teacher.
Skynyrd's guitar army would go on to international success, cranking out such anthems as "Freebird" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The old coach eventually embraced the fame that came with the rock 'n' roll version of his name, but never quite understood why he was being ridiculed for doing his job and trying to make rebellious kids respect the rules"
from Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel
