FUV Five Favorite Concerts: Corny O'Connell

by WFUV Staff
The Police

During the 2014 FUV fall member drive, we're shining a spotlight on live concerts and performances. The FUV on-air staffers compiled individual lists of five memorable and marvelous shows that have stayed with them over the years, for one reason or another.

Corny O'Connell's Five Favorite Concerts:

The Police, Brendan Byrne Arena (April 1982)
The Police were four albums along and riding a huge wave of popularity. They had the audience locked in a pulsing, hypnotic groove from start to finish. It was amazing to see this concrete structure moving in unison with the crowd. Afterward as the mass of people flowed out, I had one of those missed connections with a beautiful, brown-eyed brunette—it still haunts me.

Keep It Simple

Kim Deitch Studio

Tonight's "Big Broadcast" has a typical six birthdays, including the wonderful singer Lee Wiley, and writers who gave us "Body and Soul," "Ain't She Sweet" and "Autumn in New York." But the dates take a back seat to the vital matter of Membership. You may have heard that our Fall 2014 Member Drive has begun. My friends Chuck Singleton, George Bodarky and I will be doing our part between 8 and midnight. If you're not a WFUV Member by then, we hope you will be before 12:01 AM Monday.
