John Fay - Guitar & vocals: The Tryfles
  I do remember Glenn (the owner) and his horn of some kind.
  Adding to Blair's drinking age stuff, NYC clubs remained lax in their carding. I had changed my birthdate on my PAPER NY drivers license. Easy to do for me, I just wet the 1 in front of the 3 until it disappeared. Then put it in a window wallet.
That was fine and dandy until I went to a Long Island club to see the Mosquitos in 1986. They demanded to see the other half of the license, that I had in a box back at home. Never thought I'd need it. It was infuriating, as I was twenty (at the time).
  Sometime during the spring of '84 (I think...maybe later), I was invited to co-DJ. I don't remember the gal's name, but she had a good sense of humor.
  Well into the evening, I decided to spin a lovely ode titled "The Longest Fart In The World". Many patrons were bemused. Those in the know were amused, what with the unmistakable phonics of a lot of beans coming through the PA. Glenn (the owner) came to the booth, hands clasped together in delight, and thanked me just for being alive.
   

Listen to "The Longest Fart "

  Oh yeah, a lot of cool tunes were spun too.
  I'd also like to add that, for most of us, The Dive made us feel like we could make it (whatever IT was). And for that brief two years, '83 & '84, there was a sort of magic that I have not felt since.
