Valentines Day

View image | gettyimages.com So, once again its “Valentine’s Day“ Ever wonder who was this Valentine dude and was this person really all that “mushy”? Did a little digging and it seems that the Catholic Church recognizes about three different saints named either Valentinus or Valentine. One line goes that Roman emperor Claudius II decreed single…

Music Radio…

Music Radio… Seems to be so commercialized. You get a few good songs mixed in with a stretch of music that you hear over and over and over again peppered with the same commercials. That was how I felt when I first started this station years back. Adding to that was the fact that I…

The Recipe… Part 1

Here’s a few tips:
Don’t go for “cute”. Cute don’t stay cute for long if you discover you brought something that sounds like crap.
Consider how long you will be wearing the head gear. Look for comfort.
Consider what you will be doing while wearing the cans.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Just sending out a shout out to all of you who’ve been listening to the station and visiting this site. Wanted to wish you all the best this Thanksgiving no matte what your situation might be at this time. I know a number of us are dealing with some real liquid hell right…

Tha’ Jazzzz….

Tha’ Jazzz… Hey! Talking about 5 hrs of Wa’ D’s goodies. Tha’ Jazz… Some interesting stuff in the latest set. A good set to check out if you like hearing songs with some serious Bass lines or are an aspiring drummer looking to check out some deep drum cuts. Or maybe if you are into …

Ohhh Vesta…

(That’s what I said when the news got to me …) Ohhh Vesta  not you too… Seems like everyday signs of our mortality being shown to us along our travels. Vesta Williams showed us how beautiful sound could be. Vesta caught my attention with “Don’t You Blow A Good Thing”. My reaction was “Who Dat!?!?”…

G’bye Phoebe Snow…

Her’s was a voice that was in that class where Minnie played.
Nooo… one could never be mistaken for the other. They do not sound the same… One was just as pure as the other.. each as rare…just as unique. When you heard Minnie, you knew it. You didn’t have to think about it. You simply knew it from the inside out.
That’s also how Phoebe hits you too. Once you hear her voice, next time there’s no mistaking. It can be gutsy one second and blasting through four octaves the next. Recognition comes subconsciously.
And, you will smile.
