Some of you may have heard of the revelations that have come out of the new-ish Kenny Rogers memoir Luck or Something Like It“. The following is from an article here.

The 74-year-old star admitted setting up a 1800 number for women to call so he could indulge in phone sex with them. Three women later filed a lawsuit against the star claiming he had coaxed them into playing kinky phone sex games… Rogers settled the lawsuit before it ever came to court in 1990. But now speaking about the phone sex he said:’I thought that (phone sex) was the safest sex there was, only to get hammered by it. Here I was, it’s between friends. We can’t be together, so let’s talk about it. It was great, it was exciting, it was fun. They didn’t have to call if they didn’t want to, but they did and recorded it.’

If perhaps you don’t believe that this is a true story, you can read more about it here or here or Google Kenny Rogers sex scandal. The sentence from the quote above is the most vital here as I spent some time tracking down one of these ladies and traded her a coveted RTH t-shirt.


in exchange for any sexy audio she might have recorded during her sessions with the original Roaster. She gave me this. Enjoy everybody and if there is one thing that we all know about The Mod it’s that he loves The Kenny Rogers.  So, Happy Birthday my friend.

  1. Happy Birthday, MR. M! Remember 50 is just a number; a really really big number. May we all raise an Italian sausage in your honor. (I mean a real sausage, get your minds out of the gutter) Thanks for all the inspiration and entertainment you bring to the Hall.

    Sammy, the full 1-800 number please?

    Happy birthday Mr. Mod!

  3. Happy Birthday, Mod! Enjoy those sweet, sweet AARP discounts!

    To paraphrase Shakespeare, age cannot wither him, not custom stale his infinite variety.

    Happy birthday, Moddie. Enjoy this, your first year of your sixth decade.

    Your pal in Rock and otherwise,

    Sure thing. It’s one of those phonetic deals:

    1-479-626-2874 or 1-GRY-MAN-BUSH

    Happy birthday, Mr. Modulator. May you have at least another half century of rock and roll.

    Sammy, thanks for the shout out. It was an honor to meet the overworked and under-appreciated RTH IT staff in L.A. and hang out with you and the rest.

  8. Welcome to the 50’s club. You know you’re in your 30’s when you get weird ear hair. You know you’re in your 40’s when you have to hold the menu at arm’s length to read it. Get psyched for what comes next.

    Happy birthday and thanks for keeping the light on! I think I’m an “organic” townsperson, too. I’m pretty sure I’m about the only Clevelander (ish) here. I know last year when I turned 50 those fuckers at AARP sent me a signup card two months before I was 50! I was pissed! But I keep thinking I should sign up for 5% off my meals at Denny’s.

    Wow – for once I have perfect timing…been under the gun last few weeks with the pesky day job and I pick the very day of Mr. Mod’s birthday to resurface and stop in at the Hall. Most excellent! Happy 50th birthday Mr. Mod…I’m right on your heels and your a Mod-el to us all.

    Happy birthday, Mr. Mod. Thanks not only for the entertaining reading, but also for all the good music this site has led me to.

  12. Happy Birthday Mr. Mod. Congratulations on 50 years of principled stubborn!

    Happy belated Birthday Mr. Mod & welcome to the 50 club, which I joined just last year. Props on putting the piccy of Jamie Moyer on your post. He was the last of our generation to be active in MLB. We certainly have come to a turning point.

  14. We need to get “Organic RTH Member” cards made and distributed! I agree with Sammy, finding folks like you out there in the wild blue yonder is one of the prime joys of doing this stuff.

  15. I kept dreading the day that Moyer was out of baseball. I knew it would mark the end of one of my fantasy lives, or so I thought. I guess some fantasies never die. I’m not ready to aspire to some new ridiculous fantasy, like becoming President of the US, or whatever a man our age should fantasize about becoming.

  16. Belated Happy Birthday Mr. Mod. Welcome ot the wrong side of 50. It ain’t that bad.

    Most people I know seem to at least try to keep it together and not morph into boring old farts. At least that’s my plan.

    Shit, y’all are old. Happy 50th!
