Music Monday: “Rumours” was the best album of 1977

| July 9, 2018

It may only be my music taste … or due to heading of to the music listening college days … but the Fleetwood Mac album "Rumours" album was probably the best of 1977 — I still think every cut was excellent. While cooling off in the pool this weekend after outdoor chores (and some sunburn), […]

Music Monday: Jet Airliner recorded by the Steve Miller Band

| June 25, 2018

In keeping with the Music Mondays theme, the Steve Miller Band concert was last week at Riverbend in Cincinnati. It is hard to believe the band has been playing over 50 years … and still being enjoyed by fans (this year Peter Frampton joined the tour). I recall listening to the 1970s albums on 8-track […]

Music Monday: Steve Carlisle singing WKRP in Cincinnati

| March 19, 2018

During a couple evenings last week I enjoyed a Twitter back and forth with Charlie Wilde, a disc jockey filling in for the vacationing JJ Walker on SiriusXM 70s on 7. Our conversation turned to Cincinnati and the radio industry we both remembered a few years ago … and of course the hit 70s TV […]

TechFriday: Loving the SiriusXM streaming app

| February 9, 2018

As a Fox Business addicted viewer, I keep a live-feed running much of the day just as others do for music, talk radio or sports. One of the challenges is that it isn’t convenient or available, especially in a low bandwidth, "just" audio feed … unless I’m in the car and listening on SiriusXM Radio. […]

As my weekly travel decreases, data connectivity is finally good

| October 17, 2017

My mobile life is FINALLY working the way it should, just as my road life is slowing down. I’ve been monkeying around with the "mobile office" for A LOT of years starting with a 1999 AWD Chrysler Town & Country back in the late 1990s before mounting my Palm Treo in my great little Volkswagen […]

Summer Breeze, makes me feel fine …

| June 29, 2016

Although it has been posted on my blog before (6 years ago) in a live version, Summer Breeze by Seals and Croft has been buzzing in my head ever since hearing it on SiriusXM "The Bridge" (that channel — #32 — has become my preferred music station when in the car — although usually I’m […]

Tired of playing games with media subscriptions services

| January 31, 2014

It’s depressing to be back from a few days of sun (and rain), after a long drive from Florida yesterday, but also good to be home. It has been a morning clearing a few bills and accumulated mail off my desk and a light work day before Superbowl XLVIII weekend. One piece of mail, a […]

SiriusXM Jam_ON with Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers

| May 6, 2013

I’ve posted a few Van Session links in the past and figured why not at a SiriusXM Jam_ON session recording a “Little Too Late.” It has been fun watching the Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers expand their audience last year as they toured the country. The “cream rises the top” and it is great to […]

Test recording a little audio with the iPad while mobile

| April 19, 2012

SiriusXM Radio’s The Spectrum (ch28) highlighted Jack Johnson on Wednesday afternoon and I just happened to be in the car to enjoy the broadcast. I’ve also recently installed a RAM Mount for my Honda Pilot and decided to test out the WavePad app and decided to send the mp3 audio clip to my nephew (both […]
