Beschreibung: By BOB ANDELMAN

Somehow, in all the years I was a rock ?n? roll critic for either the St. Petersburg Times, Tampa Tribune or Music magazine in the 1980s, I never saw Bob Seger live.

For the life of me, I can?t explain it. I certainly wanted to see him; he?s one of those guys?like Springsteen, Joel and Mellencamp?who always spoke to me.

When I was a freshman at the University of Miami, back in ?78, I worked at the college radio station, WVUM, doing air shifts as a DJ and producing dozens of public service announcements. I almost always chose Seger songs as background music.

And the day I drove away from school at the end of freshman year, back to Jersey, my friend Bob and I only had one 8-track tape to entertain us as we took turns driving non-stop?Live Bullet.

That?s why I tracked down Tom Weschler as a guest for the show. He was Seger?s road manager?and unofficial tour photographer?for the first decade or so of Seger?s four-decade career and has frequently dropped back in on his old friend?s career at key moments.

Now?with the help of writer Gary Graff?Weschler has produced Travelin? Man, a coffee table book of photos and memories that no Seger fan will want to live without.
Hear it now!AUDIO EXCERPT: "In 1978, Bob Seger was playing four sold-out nights in Pine Knob, Michigan, and Bruce Springsteen came to town and wanted to meet Bob. I set it up and I said to Bob's bodyguard?who I hired back in 1971? 'Do me a favor and keep all the other photographers out of here for 10 minutes, will ya?' And I got my shot."
