One of the Valley’s best-known radio personalities, KSLX (100.7 FM)’s morning man Mark Mayfield, is preparing to climb back into his Sleep America bed for the Seventh Annual “Get in Bed with Mark” Food Drive, presented by Sleep America, to benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance.

Over the first seven years, KSLX and Sleep America have raised more than 980,000 meals for the hungry of Arizona, with the 2013 drive collecting a record 230,000 meals.

Mayfield will begin his three-day live marathon 6 a.m. Wednesday, April 9 at the Whole Foods Market in the Town & Country Shopping Center (northeast corner of 20th Street and Highland), which will serve at the flagship location for the entire food drive.

He will literally get into a Sleep America bed aboard a flat-bed truck outside the store, asking Valley listeners to contribute both nonperishable food items and cash donations to St. Mary’s while interviewing celebrities including Rock N’ Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper and spinning classic rock tunes.

For the third straight year, the food drive will expand to several Albertson’s locations around the Valley, with different locations serving as satellite drive sites for food and cash donations.

The following Albertsons markets will serve as collection sites for each day of the drive:

On April 9:
* 16750 West Bell Road, Surprise (8 a.m. to 10 a.m.)
* 4060 West Ray Road, Chandler (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.)
* 5040 West Cactus Road. Glendale (10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.)
* 21001 North Tatum Boulevard. Phoenix (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.)

On April 10:
* 750 East Guadalupe Road, Tempe (8 a.m. to 10 a.m.)
* 2785 North Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.)
* 441 N. Val Vista Drive, Mesa (3 p.m. to 5 p.m.)
* 10665 North Tatum Boulevard, Phoenix (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.)

On April 11:
* 8240 W. Deer Valley Road. Peoria (8 a.m. to 11 a.m.)
* 4747 E. Greenway Road, Phoenix (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.)

The drive will culminate on Friday, April 11 with fourth annual “Sleep America Great Bed Race” to benefit the Food Bank outside in the Whole Foods parking lot. At the end of the drive, Sleep America President and Spokesperson Debbie Gaby will raffle off the queen-size Kingsdown bed which will have served as Mayfield’s home for three days and more than 50 hours of radio.

Grim Facts | April 7, 1975 | TIME - Alice Banned from Australia

timeIn an article printed in Time on April 7th, 1975, it is revealed that Alice Cooper had been banned from Australia by Australian Labor and Immigration Minister Clyde Cameron.  The article posts the Minister’s statement, as well as Alice’s reaction, both of which are below.

“I am not going to allow a degenerate who could powerfully influence the young and weak-minded to enter ‘this country and stage this sort of exhibition here,” declared Australian Labor and Immigration Minister Clyde Cameron after banning a tour Down Under by eye-shadowed Vaude-Rocker Alice Cooper. “Isn’t that crazy?” said Alice. “People still think I kill chickens onstage.” Now on a 65-city tour through the U.S., Europe and Japan with his new act, Welcome to My Nightmare, Cooper vows to press on to Australia in September. His show, which will be shown as a 90-minute TV special later this month, features dancing skeletons, 7-ft. fake spiders and a 20-ft. spider web. Alice’s defense of his props is somewhat cobwebbed too: “I have never done anything nearly as bloody as King Lear or Macbeth, and that’s considered required reading in every high school in America.”

40TH ANNIVERSARY OF ALICE'S 1ST BRAZIL TOUR

30mar14

Original Post at EFEMÉRIDES DO ÉFEMELLO

Vincent Damon Furnier was up to the task of breaking the brazilian lands with good old rock and roll.  Well, a little more than good old …

After all, we’re talking about Alice Cooper .

He was at the peak.  With a mix of heavy music , theater , performance , and horror (with the right to guillotines and blood on stage!), Filled theaters and concert halls wherever he went.

In Brazil, was no different. Well, it was more.  It was total insanity!

It was the first tour of South America Alice Cooper arrived on 28 March at the Guarulhos International Airport in Campinas , and then headed to Sao Paulo, where we arrived at noon in Congonhas.

The next day, a press conference turned the capital city upside down.  The artist and the band arrived an hour late because hundreds of fans followed the car of Alice San Raphael Hotel, in the center, to the interview location, a restaurant at Rua Sete de Abril. Friendly and smiling, he took Brazilian beer and said his desire was to have fun here .

On March 30, 1974 , Alice Cooper saw what was fun.  That show at the Anhembi Exhibition Hall is in history for many reasons , chief among them undoubtedly is public.  Speak in 80 thousand, 100 thousand and up to 158 thousand people! A sea of ​​people.  (AC.COM NOTE – APPARENTLY THIS SEA OF PEOPLE IS STILL A RECORD FOR AN INDOOR AUDIENCE!)

The capacity became an issue when Alice and the band came on stage. The class of the precipice ran to stand in front and there was a principle of confusion, since the personal gargling with no way out, had to climb up on stage. The police swung into action and the threat that there would be no show slowed the momentum of fans.

So Alice Cooper returned and realized epic performance. (He) Decapitated dolls, was electrocuted and guillotined, all as the script for his macabre theater of horror.  The script still had trash “Pra Frente Brazil”  in high speakers at the end of the show.  With the right chorus of the public who made ​​the Anhembi.

The “godfather of shock rock” also appeared in São Paulo two other days (March 31 and April 1) at the Palace of Conventions, also at Anhembi.  Then went to Rio and toured the Canecão (day 5) and Maracanãzinho (day 6 ).

But the show was the 30th in history.

He would return to Brazil in four other occasions, the last in 2011.

But that story is for another day… For every day is historic.

MORE INFORMATION on SUPER DUPER ALICE COOPER:

Super Duper Alice Cooper is the first ever ‘doc opera’ – a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of ALICE COOPER.

The film is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock n’ roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher’s son who struck fear into the hearts of parents as ALICE COOPER, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the 60’s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the 70s to his triumphant comeback as 80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s’ souls. Alice’s story is told not only by the man himself, but through exclusive interviews with members of the original ALICE COOPER band, Elton John, Iggy Pop, John Lydon, and Dee Snider.

Super Duper Alice Cooper is the creation of Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn at Banger Films, producers of Iron Maiden: Flight 666 (2009 SXSW Audience Choice Winner) and Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage (2010 Grammy-nominated and Tribeca Audience Choice Winner), and much-lauded filmmaker Reginald Harkema, winner of the TIFF Special Jury Prize for his film Monkey Warfare.
