Streaker reconsiders trying to sneak out

I want to thank all of you for 850,000 hits on Artie Wayne On The Web! Over the last two and a half years, we’ve had a lot of attention on the blogs we’ve put up about Music, Pop Culture, satire, and just about anything else that runs across my mind.

While I’m putting the final touches on my autobiography, “ I Did It For A Song”, I compiled a list of my ten favorite posts to give you something to read over the weekend. Now in no particular order…

  6. Val Garay Says:

    Hey Artie…What an accomplishment! 850,000 hits….keep it up as it’s always good reading!
    Peace,
    Val

  7. Ronnie Allen Says:

    This is a fastatic accomplishment. Your website is always so interesting and I know how much effort you put into it. I sometimes wonder if you EVER get any sleep. Before we know it, you’ll be up to a million! Way to get, Artie!

  8. Clay Cole Says:

    850,ooo is the number of J&B shots consumed by Alan Freed – while on his 8-11:00 radio shift.

    850,000 is the number of record industry-relate companies owned by Dick Clark – before payola hearings.

    850,000 is the number of gigs performed annually by Kenny Vance & the Planotones.

    850,000 is the total accumulation of hate mail delivered to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame each year.

    850,000 dollars is the exact weekly royalty payment collected by Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio and Bob Crewe.

    850,000 unique visitors is another memorable milestone; you are in good company my friend. Just turn those hits into dollars and buy yourself a truckload of J&B and book the Planotone to play for you 24/7

    Congratulations old friend; what would we do without you! – Love to all Clay Cole


  9. I also had 850,000 hits. Just ask my old drug dealers.

    Congrats, Artie. You are doing a great service for those of us who can’t remember much.

  31. Kent Kotal Says:

    WTG, Artie!!! Congratulations on your 850,000th web hit! (And to think that I was actually patting myself on the back after MY website celebrated 40,000 visits this past weekend!!! God, I feel like such an insignificant fool!!! Who says size doesn’t matter?!?!?) But that’s OK … I believe that I can STILL find a purpose in my life … so now instead worrying about what kind of traffic I can generate over at forgottenhits.com, I’m going to amuse myself by jumping back to YOUR site again and again and again and again until I become the ONE MILLIONTH VISITOR!!! Gotta go … I’ve got a LOT of clicking to do!!!

  32. Country Paul Payton Says:

    Congratulations, Artie; I’m pleased to join this illustrious chorus, many of whose music (including yours) I’ve been enchanted by and/or played on the radio. You’ve got a nice group of friends; I’m happy to be one of them!

    Let’s see how fast that next 150,000 add up……onward to a million! (Do we have to get you a Golden Blog Award when that happens?)

  33. Steve Dworkin Says:

    Hi Artie,
    Congats. Always great to read your blogs. Keep up the good work, so I can write something for your next 850,000.
    Steve

  34. Mike Millius Says:

    Arite Wayne, is a musical force of nature who had a major helping hand in creating the golden age of the music business that we all know & love. And as one of the last men standing, continues to be the crazy glue that keeps so much of it together. I mean it!

  35. Ollabelle Hall Says:

    Way to go Artie!!!!

  36. Terri Fricon Says:

    Just want to add my voice to the chorus — congrats, Artie!

  37. Tony "Dee" DiGirolamo Says:

    Congratulations Artie … visiting your site is a walk in time past and it does us all a bit of good to do so.

    I love Clay Cole’s hit on 850,000 hits. I’ve got one: A Larry Udallism record businessism, now Artie don’t think that 850,000 hits means … Well, you know what I mean… Right?

    Just some fun here and I hope I made you smile … Midnight Mary did sell a million … you’ve already done that big time!!!

    Glad I could play a tiny part in that bit of Artie Wayne’s historical career.

  38. Bobbi Cowan Says:

    Hey Artie…
    Congratulations on nearing the Magic Million…This is where you will suddenly become “viable” for advertisers, and maybe even find a legit publisher for your book!
    Lots of buzz about your site, and all kinds of people are finding out that you are like the Forrest Gump of the Music business– when something important was going on, Artie was there!
    Love ya…
    Bobbi Cowan

  39. Andrew C. Jones Says:

    To quote Adam Wade (who was in turn quoting E. Warren and A. Kent), “I suppose … I ought to say …Con-grat-u-la-tions … ” (Personally, I preferred Johnny Mathis’ version.)

  40. steve owen Says:
