Local blues band The Nighthawks play their version of the Alabama3 song "Woke up this morning" - the Tony Soprano theme.
This morning as I got my latest edition of vanilla infused brackish liquid caffeine in a thermal cardboard cup, I couldn’t help but overhear a conversation which both amused and angered me. I confess I will eavesdrop when something tickles my fancy and if you’re loud enough to be heard by... Read more

And Sony, James Franco and Seth Rogen can eat me!
There is a great misconception going around today that somehow Sony Pictures limited Seth Rogen and James Franco’s First Amendment rights by bowing to pressure from North Korea and pulling the picture “The Interview” from a general release on Christmas day.
While it may stand as a critical response to the lack of acting, writing and directing skills of the principles involved in the movie and while it may also speak volumes about the lack of intestinal fortitude of those in Sony’s management – After all “Team America World Police” was released and that parody featured a leader of North Korea who was portrayed –literally- as a puppet, the mastermind of terrorism across the world and ultimately as a cockroach. But in the end it isn’t a violation of Freedom of Expression or Free Speech to withdraw the release of “The Interview.”
It was the heyday of rock n’ roll radio. For those of us who worked in radio at the time, it was an era filled with sex, drugs, rock and good times.
If you weren’t around, think of "WKRP in Cincinnati" but amped up and wilder – and far less “G” rated.
Now someone who spent the time at high levels in the radio industry during the glorious 70s has penned an eponymous recounting of life in the rock n’ roll fast lane during the last, great rock n’ roll boom of the 1970s and early 80s.
Beau Phillips adventure, “I Killed Pink Floyd’s Pig” named after a very funny chapter that you’ll have to read to understand, tells humorous and sometimes poignant tales of rock n’ roll viewed from the best seat in the house – a radio station program director and executive at the early MTV networks.
I’m not the greatest vacationer. To me being at the beach is like being water boarded with sand. I actually, got suntan once and that was only because my house was on fire and I had to run outside. Truth be told, I started out as a stand-up comic and to us the sun was a byproduct of waking up way too early.
