Welcome back my friends to the column that never ends. (Sorry, been listening to some ELP lately) I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for 2021! 2020 has been such a s**t show, at times you think you had enough, then WHAM, bend over and take so more. At times, when I […]

Greetings all, hope all is well with you. It has been one HELL of a year, and it ain’t done yet. Where do we start? Well, obviously COVID, the lock for Time Magazine’s “Pandemic of the Year.” Guess what? I am SO burnt out on that topic (not EVEN gonna touch politics), I can’t talk […]

Richard was born Richard Penniman on December 5th in Macon, Georgia, and among his musical influences were Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Mahalia Jackson. […]

Thanks for checking us out again, we’re proud to be part of Xperience, the hottest thing going on for the Capital Region next to Gov. Cuomo’s trips to Puerto Rico. I planned on doing a continuation from the last issue on what I called “Musical Royalty,” where music acts are given (somewhat) proper titles to […]

OBSERVATIONS AND RAMBLINGS FROM A CRANKY OLD GUY Jeff Spaulding Greeting and salutations, let’s have a little fun with this. I don’t think there is anything more mystifying in music through the ages as the concept of the “One Hit Wonder.” It’s those special times where a solo artist, duo or group release a song […]
