Summer Music Monday with a Jackson Browne Two-fer

| June 26, 2017

As mentioned before, Jackson Browne hold a prominent spot on my Pandora channel list and is my “go-to” click just after the Thumbprint Radio feature. Not a month goes by without me wanting to listen to one of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band original musicians (1966). This week I’m in the mood for a couple […]

Music Monday: Wichita Lineman sung by Glen Campbell #vinyl

| June 12, 2017

Music memories only go back so far for me … and likely only two musicians exist as favorites from my pre-teenage days (probably because my mom listened to the radio). One of the two artists is Glen Campbell, the other Roger Miller. One of the songs I remember is “Witchita Lineman,” written by Jimmy Webb, […]

My friend Jeff and I were reflecting on my bachelor party/camping trip to North and South Carolina in May of 1982 just as a photo appeared of Jimmy Buffett and friends hanging out on Folly Beach, SC. Jeff was sharing a couple of Buffett songs from the License to Chill album while we were reminiscing. […]

Mellow Music Monday: Down in Belize with Jerry Jeff Walker

He’s an artist from years ago when my listening taste was more country, folk and tropical rock … well perhaps I haven’t really changed? If you don’t recall the long […]

Music Monday: Another year and more Van Morrison

| April 17, 2017

Likely Brown Eyed Girl is one of the all time favorite tunes for more than just my generation … no matter who’s version it is. The original 1967 version is hard to beat since it was written and record by Van Morrison … although I’m quite fond of Jimmy Buffett’s 1983 recording (YouTube) too.   […]

A Music Monday Two-fer – but still out of the 1970s

| March 20, 2017

Interesting photo??? Well musicians can have an unusual beginning and career turns. Before a musical career, John Hall (photo right) was an academically gifted 3-time National Science Foundation summer scholar and University of Notre Dame and Loyola College physics student at the age of 16 and after music, he ran for political office and end […]
