It's 2003 and I'm 41 years old. My father would pass away this year so it wasn't exactly a stellar year. However, my faith saw me through. I remember driving down to St. Michael's Cathedral and hearing this song by the Canadian duo Appleton come on the radio. https://youtu.be/ToHuwkUCrBA The radio program was called Lovers and Other...

So it's time once again to pick my fav song for a particular year. This time 1964. '64 was the year of the British Invasion. Take a look at the Billboard top 100 for that year and you'll be amazed how many Beatles tunes fill the chart. I started to get mixed up counting at... Continue Reading →

Somewhere in the distant future... a bio-bot cries out through space and time... That's the blub I used at SoundCloud to describe this tune. Known influences are Daft Punk, Jim Morrison, Bach - Mozart - Beethoven - Sibelius (those classical guys...) and all the other electronica and dance musicians I've heard. Lots. Too many to...

I was in the used bookstore yesterday and heard this groovy sounding Steve Winwood music playing in the background. As I pondered the book titles I searched my memory and, no matter how hard I tried, couldn't locate the record I was listening to. It sounded very 70s and I thought I knew just about every Blind...
