[E24] MIND BENDER RADIO with Tony Trombo. Guest: Pete and Pat Luboff
My guests are Pete and Pat Luboff.
We are songwriters, music publishers and songwriting educators. For many years we were music business photojournalists and arts administrators. In 40 years of working as a team, we have built a broad base of knowledge of the music business with particular emphasis in all aspects of songwriting and have developed extensive contacts with hundreds of songwriters, producers, music publishers and record label executives.
As songwriters, we have had success with "Trust Me," the first single on Snoop Dogg's "Topp Dogg" album, "I Wish He Didn't Trust Me So Much," a No. 2 chart recording by Bobby Womack, "Body Language" cut by Patti LaBelle (gold album) and the featured song in the John Travolta movie, "The Experts," "The Son My Daddy Never Had," a charting Country single with Miko Marks, and recordings by Michael Peterson, Glenn Jones, among others.
We have been teaching songwriting workshops since 1979 and currently conduct workshops in Nashville. We also travel to teach workshops. Recent cities we’ve done workshops in are New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Seattle, Indianapolis and Denver. Click here to find out more about hosting a Luboff workshop in your town. And here to read what songwriters have said about us.
For almost 20 years, Pete conducted the Monday night workshops at the National Academy of Songwriters. Pete also taught advanced songwriting at UCLA for 13 years. We’ve both taught workshops at the Taxi Road Rally and screened extensively for Taxi. We also have judged for various songwriting contests, including the Just Plain Folks, John Lennon, and Great American Song contests.

[E22] MIND BENDER RADIO with Tony Trombo. Guest: Amanda MacDonald
My guest is Amanda MacDonald with the FROZEN DEAD GUY DAYS festival in Colorado!
Frozen Dead Guy Days (started 2002) is an annual celebration held in the town of Nederland, Colorado, to loosely celebrate, through a theme of frozen/ice/blue/winter, the 1994 discovery of the cryonic state corpse of Bredo Morstel.
Frozen Dead Guy Days is celebrated from Friday through Sunday on the first full weekend of March. Coffin races, a slow-motion parade, and "Frozen Dead Guy" lookalike contests are held. A documentary on "Grandpa Bredo", called Grandpa's in the Tuff Shed, is shown. A newer version of the film, Grandpa's Still in the Tuff Shed, was premiered in Nederland on March 7, 2003.
Other events include a tour of the Tuff Shed where Grandpa is still frozen; a "polar plunge" for those brave enough to go swimming in Colorado in early March (which generally requires breaking through the ice); a dance, called "Grandpa's Blue Ball"; pancake breakfasts; a market showcasing local artists; snowshoe races, and snow sculpture contests. Glacier Ice Cream, headquartered in the nearby city of Boulder, makes a flavor specifically for the festival (named, appropriately enough, Frozen Dead Guy), consisting of fruit-flavored blue ice cream mixed with crushed Oreo cookies and sour gummy worms. Tours of the Tuff Shed where Grandpa is still frozen were suspended after 2005, after Grandpa's family "became frustrated with Frozen Dead Guy Days", but they resumed with the 2010 celebration.
Although Trygve and Aud filed a complaint against Nederland involving money and naming rights in 2005, Frozen Dead Guy Days is still alive; the most recent celebration was held March 7–9, 2014 and the next is scheduled for March 6th-8th 2015.
