One K!

The numbers tell me this is post 1,000 on this site.  ONE THOUSAND! So now is as good of a time as any to say thank you.  Whether you come here daily, weekly, or whenever the mood strikes. Whether you come for the music or the politics. Whether you come to hear my opinions on […]

Song of the Day – ‘Hey Jude’

  Wilson Pickett did a cover of ‘Hey Jude’?  Really?  How do I not have any memory of this? Well, it sounds like a great idea on paper, let’s taken a listen… (clicking Play…) (GASP!!!)
