The 19th Hole Golf Show Talks LPGA Sponsors

If you read this blog, then you've already seen that we have a sidebar link for this week's podcast. But, if you catch us through a feed, another website, etc, you may not know that The 19th Hole Golf Show this week has a great interview with Sports Business Journal/Daily's Jon Show. He's their golf reporter and we spoke for about 12 minutes regarding the bad weekend for LPGA sponsors and the fallout from that.

As it turns out, it may not all be bad news for the LPGA Tour and there are several potential new events that could come on line. Show then talks about the impact of these events on the cable negotiations and LPGA goals to own more events.

Jeff Lynne wanted to follow Time with a double album, but with the price of oil in 1983; CBS blocked his plan claiming it would be too expensive. The new album was edited down from double album to a single disc and released as Secret Messages in 1983 (many of the outtakes were later released on "Afterglow" or as b-sides of singles). The album was an instant hit in the UK reaching the top 5. The album's release was dampened by a string of bad newshat there would be no tour to promote the LP, that drummer Bevan was now playing drums for Black Sabbath and that bassist Kelly Groucutt had left the band (Groucutt later sued Lynne, Bevan, and ELO's management for alleged lost royalty fees and the matter was eventually settled out of court).[citation needed] Rumours from fans about the group disbanding were publicly denied by Bevan. Although Secret Messages debuted at number four in the United Kingdom, it fell off the charts, failing to catch fire with a lack of hit singles in the U.K.(though "Rock and Roll is King" was a sizeable hit in UK, and, the U.S.) and a lukewarm media response.
