& it's been full tilt boogie ever since!
Rock 103 in Memphis has really been good to her.
Read what Luca & had to say about Alison on the air at Rock 103:
DJ: So come out & join us.
Luca: And Alison Heafner's gonna be playing...
DJ: Oh my God! We'll burn the bar down!
Luca: Listen to this!
She performed last week at the Boiling Point down in Southhaven http://www.theboilingpoint.com/
& our friend Pablo went to see her. She did her own version of ENTER SANDMAN from Metallica.
DJ: Hell, yes! Maybe she'll play it tomorrow.
Luca: She followed it by STRUT which she did when she performed at T.J. Mulligan's last time. I'm going to try to convince her to do some more Metallica. I want to hear her version.
THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!
DJ: Me too! Yeah that's all going on tomorrow...
Rock 103 has something to do with this superb podcast by Dave "Vexar Dave" Thorn which you can hear by clicking below.
Vexar Dave rants a little at the beginning about G.I. Joe but the second cut on the show is Alison doing THE ROAD GOES ON FOREVER.

Here's Vexar Dave's podcast...Alison is the second cut...http://www.vexarentertainment.com/podcast.html
As many of y'all have realized, I've been going through the Robertoreg Archives lately and tonight I began to look through the 15 '67-'68 Berkeley Barbs which Rockin' Gibraltars' guitarist Rusty Crumpton gave me back in '73 or '74 when he moved from his little crib off of 13th Street down by the railroad tracks near 10th Avenue.
I was looking on the back page of 1968's March 29-April 4, BIG SUR BUSTS number and found a Grateful Dead ad for a Carousel Ballroom March 29, March 30 & March 31 concerts with Chuck Berry.
I looked it up on Google and found the damn tape of the concert free on the Web.
Check it out:Here's March 29, 1968http://www.archive.org/details/gd68-03-29.aud.vernon.9473.sbeok.shnf
Here's March 30, 1968http://www.archive.org/details/gd68-03-30.aud.cotsman.14912.sbeok.shnf
Here's March 31, 1968http://www.archive.org/details/gd68-03-31.aud.cotsman.14913.sbeok.shnf
& last but not least as I was going through all this old stuff I found 13 documents from May of 1970 including copies of the Crimson-White, the Tuscaloosa News, High Gauge & the University Free Press.
If anybody needs to know what happened here during Kent State, tell 'em to call me cause I got dah stuff which includes the Thursday August 13, 1970 Crimson White with the earth shaking headline:CAPSTONE STUDENT FOUND NOT GUILTY!
It includes these words in BOLD PRINT!
Emmett Brown and Robert Register, both University students, testified that Culberson was inside the apartment when the policemen arrived. They also both testified that the door burst open and the lights went out in the apartment simultaneously.
Judge Rosen had to gavel down the laughing courtroom crowd after I responded to one of General Partlow's questions:
General Partlow: & Mr. Register, what exactly did you do when Officer Bingham broke the door down?
Roberto: I left the room, Sir.
