Tenants gathered in the community room of Stonehenge Village, an Upper West Side rental complex, to hear about its new gym. Management explained that only market-rate tenants — fewer than 40 percent of the residents — would have access, Jean Green Dorsey, the president of the tenant association.“I had a room full of people going crazy,” said Ms. Dorsey, who has lived in the building since 1972 in a rent-stabilized unit.

This week I’ll be talking about my hopes and plans to develop the show and my personal perspectives and experiences. I’ll consider the philosophical and practical issues faced by the truth seeker and hope to clarify the imagery of the show’s title.
No doubt we will delve into the conceptual realm of numbers, alchemy/money and geometry too.
My own journey has led me to make a realisation which I do not see nor hear mentioned in the ‘Neu-enlightment’. An insight which, at first sight, seems purely academic but which I believe lies at the root of all mystical and wisdom traditions and cannot therefore be denied. It answers more questions than most have yet even thought to ask. Yet the silence has been deafening.
So, in the spirit of the bard and the troubadour, I shall ‘sing’ about it in various ways and, in the spirit of the alchemist, I hope to show you what I believe is the key to all occult knowledge and communications beyond the veil of perception.
Welcome to Pierrots and Fools
Southside Johnny joins host Robin Milling to talk about his new CD Songs From The Barn. Branching out from the Asbury Jukes with The Poor Fools, it features a collection of styles from country to samba, bluegrass to honky tonk. Many of the songs are co-written with Jukes' keyboard player Jeff Kazee which John says he's most proud of to date.
He tells Robin the songs are inspired by experiences he's had with a touch of added color. Living in El Paso, Texas back in the 60s, he laments about love lost at the border in Mexicali Waltz. He says, 'we would cross the border to Juarez and try to find trouble and we usually did find it. There were all these beautiful girls there and I was attracted to many of them. We were young and wild so my fantasies would take over and I would dream about these girls for decades to come and write about them in these songs!'
After almost 40 years with the Jukes, The Poor Fools gives Southside the chance to play for fun in smaller venues like converted churches. John recalls the old days playing schools, when his dressing room was a kindergarden classroom. 'I just remember sitting on the little chairs! You know you take this stuff humourously because otherwise you'd really get down. It's some of the things you go through just to get on stage for a couple of hours and make music.' John doesn't measure his success by longevity. He looks to the future and will 'keep riding the train until it stops.' Although he may consider looking back on it all when he's 80!

The show will explore the hardships that many working Americans face daily earning minimum pay. These Americans are often victims of systematic forms of usary and encounter difficulties rising above poverty lines. We will examine ways to transform the lives of the working poor while exploring the biblical principles of tithing, giving and receiving.
