How did you get that name?

Back in the mid 70's I had a friend who had some friends that had a band. My friend, a cute blonde girl, OMG so sexy, (who I met while on vacation in Chetek,Wisconsin) had invited me to come visit her. She lived in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Up until just before I had arrived in town they (the Band) were getting a radio station plug and they were told they wanted to know the name of the band. The Band informed the radio station they didn't have a name. The radio station told them if they wanted their band promoted they needed a name. They were told they had 2 days to decide. This was a Thursday and they had a gig, 50 miles away to play on Friday. I didn't see them until Saturday Night.

Well Thursday night the band had practice and they were hashing and throwing out names to decide which was going to be used. More arguments ensued than anything. They did, however mutually agree that when they were on there way to gig and they were on the highway, the first sign they saw would become their band name. As I have told this story many times over, I still find uniqueness in the originality and the simplicity of the decision they made to come up with a band name this way.

And what a unique and ever so lucky they didn't see the sign, oh never mind. lol


Well i'm gonna make you all think a little here. Think back to then and see if you can remember what types of signs would of been up around then. A variation of this is still around on the highways and interstates but not in the form the band was named after.

There is a yet to be determined prize that the winner will get who guesses correctly. Oh no cussing either, this is gonna be both fun and hilarious.


Guys? Ladies? What type of prize should I offer? I am open to suggestions.
List a prize suggestion for both the sexes.
I wanna have fun with this.
Naughtyblonde78 is not eligible cuz I have told her this story. Have fun.

I'm guessing it was the group "America" for the signs that were popular in the late 60s/early 70s..."Keep America Beautiful." Probably not correct. The only other suggestion would be something like "Gas/Food/Lodging" given your pictorial hint.

My guesses..Detour? Curves a head? One way? Dead End?...then there were road signs advertising things, like Woodstock, Peace, Love, and The Blue Moon cafe.

I'm not good at suggesting prizes. Sorry.

Since I was only a few years old in the mid 70's, hehe, I really have no clue, but since I do like that time periods music, America was my guess as well, and maybe Kansas. Only b/c of the time period and the area which you are talking about. Those were the only two bands from that area I could think of for that time period. Cool game.
For prizes how about writing the winner and erotic story. I know I would love a story from you featuring me...lol
Or you could promise to comment on their Blog regularly for a certain time period.
Great post.
