  1. I was an Ann Arbor girl back in the 70s, living with my family in an apartment complex, and the guy across the way was Deon’s brother George Jackson (not too long after Dylan wrote a song about the recently-deceased Black Panther of the same name). Lovely man who played me lots of his brother’s stuff (I knew and loved “Love Makes The World Go Round” from CKLW)…his only drawback was his pet monkey who used to mess up my hair and peed on me once. George thought that was hilarious, and though we remained cordial, that was my last visit. Monkey pee STANKS!

    • That’s funny! I mean, not funny at the time but . . . .the concept of an overzealous monkey. CKLW brings back a few memories. I think the last time I was in Detroit for any length of time was in 1965.
