?Left a good job in the City … ? Chuck Todd does Tina Turner ?

Tina fans,

Chuck Todd ain’t no Yanis Varoufakis but I watch his evening news and tonite all of the headlines for the stories are a tribute to Tina Turner whom I first heard of at YMCA Teen Town on South Grand Avenue in St. Louis when I was 13.

"Everyone is saying that Ike has a new lady and she’s 17 and red hot ~"

But, she was playing The Club Imperial or something like that and it cost a dollar to get in and the ‘Y’ was only a quarter.

Plus, we were kinda afraid to go to Black clubs in 1957 …


Love that woman
