Mick Jagger recording a promo for Philly radio station 93.3 WMMR at JFK Stadium 1981
MICK JAGGER: JFK STADIUM (AUGUST 21, 1981)
This photo shows Mick Jagger being recorded by WMMR’s promotions director John Bloodwell. Jagger flubbed and stuttered his way through the promo after forgetting his words. The unedited spot was broadcast on WMMR, mistakes and all. For anyone who heard it, this is what the recording session looked like.
Bloodwell wanted a copy of this photo, but he didn’t want to pay the cost of printing and shipping. Rather than foot the bill myself, I just forgot about him., reasoning why should I lose money on this deal. The total cost was about $10, including shipping.
When I learned that John Bloodwell died some years later, I regretted not giving him the photo. It would have lifted his spirits everytime he looked at that picture with Mick Jagger.
