WHERE WERE YOU WHEN. . .? ~ Nov 22, 1963
Our CKX-TV Friday Noon Show on November 22, 1963 was interrupted by an important news  bulletin. US President John F. Kennedy was reported shot while appearing in a motorcade in Dallas Texas. He had been rushed to hospital. We were all shocked, but resumed our show. 

At 1 pm we rushed to the teletype room to read the news reports as they came in over the wire. The news was not good -- half an hour later the White House Press Secretary announced that the President was dead. I spent the rest of the day in the College dorm TV room watching the emotional television reports.

JFK'S AIR FORCE ONE :: 50 YEARS LATER
Fifty years later, Sue-On and I had cause to recall the events of that fateful day of November 22, 1963. Returning from a gig in the southern States we stopped at the Wright-Patterson Air Force base in Dayton to photograph the thousands of aircraft and artifacts on display at the USAF Museum. The most popular aircraft is the Air Force One which flew JFK on his final flights to and from Dallas in November of 1963. 

Not wanting to transport Kennedy's coffin down in the cargo area the Secret Service agents sawed at cabin entrance so that the casket could be angled through the door to the cabin area. We took photos of the repaired cut as we entered and walked through the aircraft. Among the other photos we took is the area in which Johnson was sworn in as the new president, as well as the cockpit, conference areas, galley, communication centre, and the seat where widowed Jackie had sat across from her late husband's casket during the flight back to Washington, DC. An incredible and very important page from 20th Century history.

HILLMANS PLAY APACHE: 1971
MEETING WITH THE VENTURES 50 YEARS LATER
50th Anniversary Show at McPhillips Station Casino
Winnipeg ~ January 17, 2011

APACHE  |  TAMMY
* In the early '60s we were the house band at the Brandon Roller Rink. We had a chance to meet and perform with many top acts: Rockin' Conway Twitty with Al Bruno on guitar, Elvis's Memphis buddies Johnny and Dorsey Burnette, top Blues acts, Chad Allan and the Reflections, the Fireballs . . . and the VENTURES.

* Those were the days before we did many vocals and we often played guitar instrumentals for the whole gig. . . which led me on a constant search for guitar records:  Ventures, Shadows, Fireballs, Duane Eddy, Chet Atkins, Wes Dakus, Champs, Lonnie Mack, Link Wray, Spotnicks, and many one-hit wonders such as Jorgen Ingmann, String-A-Longs, Surfaris, Chantays, Rebels, Tornadoes, Pyramids, et al. I went so far as to import all the Shadows records from England and the band worked out synchronized steps to accompany the tunes.

* It was great to have the chance to meet again with the two surviving members of the original Ventures that influenced so many guitarists through so many decades.

THE COUNTRY GENTLEMEN YEARS : 1962-1966

CAJUN CHILD  | HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT
During my Brandon College years I played in quite a variety of bands: Rock, C/W, Old time, Jazz Combos, folk, but the longest lasting and best known was the Country Gentlemen. Barry Forman and I brought in numerous band line-ups and later did quite number of shows with Russ Gurr. We played a multitude of dances, pubs, car shows, live Provincial Exhibition broadcasts, Co-Op Neighbour Nights, barn dances, fairs, rodeos, military bases, etc. We also had numerous CKX TV and Radio Shows, including live daily noon shows and weekly half hours. 

After Sue-On and I were married in 1966, she decided she didn't want to be a stay-at-home musician's wife . . . so we worked up an act and she joined the group - necessitating a name change: THE WESTERN UNION

BAR WARS and TV SERIES

GOODTIME JAMBOREE  |  LADY LUCK
Songbird of the North
For some time before we moved into Brandon to finish our university degrees we had been driving in to play the beverage room in the Cecil Hotel. Our move to the city coincided with all the city's hotel beverage rooms decision to hire bands... and strippers. We have the distinction of being the first Brandon band to supply live musical accompaniment for exotic dancers. At that time most of the girls were imported from fairly classy clubs in Europe, and tourist towns like Vegas -- some were quite well educated and all were entertaining. A popular stripper at the Cecil Hotel Beverage Room was called Frenchie. In 1968 her act consisted of bathing in a transparent plexiglass tub that we had to maneuver onto our stage during each of our breaks.  The splashing water was an occupational hazard. She had recently had silicone injections into her breasts, but things had gone wrong as one hung far below the other. She swore she was only going to perform long enough to earn money marry her Mormon boyfriend. The most popular song in her act song was Neil Young's Cinnamon Girl during which she invited a few lucky guys up to scrub her back. Management was impressed with Sue-On's vocals and one night billed her on a poster alongside the stripper ad, as "The Songbird of the North" Sue-On was so embarrassed by this that she made them take down all the posters.

RUSS GURR AND THE WESTERN UNION

MUDDY MISSISSIPPI LINE  |  THE FRENCH SONG

Russ Gurr ~ Bill and Sue-On ~ Barry Forman
Jake Kroeger ~ Kerry Morris ~ John Skinner
In every summer during the '60s and early '70s we kept our calendar free of our regular bookings on military bases, TV, pubs, arena dances, etc. so that we could go on Western Canada tours for the Federal Grain Co. They supplied a motor home, vehicles, and a portable stage which also folded down to form a parade float. We played major fairs and exhibitions across the four Western provinces. The audiences were huge and we enjoyed the experience of meeting with a wonderful variety of grandstand performers and carnies.

THE HISTORIC KENNEDY BUILDING
JA-ON HILLMAN'S REACTIVE MASSAGE CENTRE
Our son Ja-On's decision to expand his Reactive Massage Therapy centre into the fully renovated "Kennedy" building on Rosser Avenue triggered some fond memories of yesteryear. Back in the mid-50s, one of my consuming interests was music. I looked forward to our family trips to Brandon, which gave me a chance to purchase the latest rock 'n' roll hits on record. 

A favourite haunt was the P.A. Kennedy Music store, which featured a large display room of radios, music equipment and a great stock of current hit records. In fact, 25 years earlier CKX radio studios had been located upstairs in the building. The most intriguing part of the store for me, however, was the area containing listening booths where music enthusiasts could listen to records before buying them. My first listening experiences all came at 78 revolutions per minute, since 78s were all our old phonograph could play.

Where Were You When? . . . The First Men On The Moon
The July 21 afternoon of our 1969 summer tour saw us glued to our little Sony portable TV. NASA's Apollo 11 space mission had touched down on the moon the day before and now the world was about to witness man's first steps on Earth's only natural satellite. Since we weren't scheduled to do a show till that evening we were looking forward to the television coverage of the historic event. Unfortunately, our coach was parked on the North Battleford, Saskatchewan fairgrounds where TV reception was dismal. We moved the set to every part of the vehicle and impatiently adjusted the rabbit ears antennae.

Finally, we picked up images of a ghost in a snowstorm, but the audio came in loud and clear. We settled back to watch this world-shattering event unfold. Seeing US astronaut Neil Armstrong finally utter the words: "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind" as he stepped onto this alien world was incredibly exciting. Considering the hazards of space travel and the state of technology and computers in the '60s, this was a major achievement.

We put on a well-received show that night, but the wonder of the scientific achievement of safely rocketing through space from the earth to the moon, to make a successful landing on the lunar surface, really eclipsed whatever success we had on stage.
