Once I settled into the apartment I was subletting, I started inviting friends over to jam. I was no longer living with a musician and was missing that sharing of music. I had also booked a gig for a month and a half away, knowing that although I was just learning to play the guitar, […]

My life was now starting to unravel in all directions. I had taken a big leap into my vagabond life with Paul when I was still pretty young, became a mother two days after my twenty-second birthday, and moved from one coast to another and back again twice. We’d settled in upstate New York because […]

I always said that if any of my partner ever got violent, I would not stay with him. I had become accustomed to physical and emotional abuse at an early age, but although I knew that I couldn’t tolerate physical abuse anymore, the emotional abuse was harder to recognize. Maybe I was also a bit […]

This is a (pretty much mostly) true story of the stupidest person I have ever met. One could say he’s as dumb as a box of rocks, but that would insult the rocks. Shakespeare would say it is “a tale told by an idiot,” I say it is a tale told ABOUT an idiot. Forrest […]

After counting the years until I would move out on my own, without the responsibilities of raising a family, I was having another child. Jessie, who had recently decided to abbreviate her name to Jes., was almost fifteen and Justin was eleven. I felt as though I was in the home stretch. Now, I was […]

Soon after we reunited following our seven-month separation, we decided that we should have a dog and found a husky through a shelter that had families host dogs until they could find them a home. Rory a big, muscular dog. He was three years old and wasn’t well trained. We decided to take him on […]

In the late eighties, I was in my mid-thirties, and we were still struggling to survive financially with two kids. We did manage to do it one way or another and even occasionally had a little cushion. But Paul jumped from job to job, never figuring where he belonged, and my work didn’t pay well. […]

Ahh, March. It is the month for the beginning of spring! Longer days, warmer temperatures, melting snow (we hope) and of course St. Patrick’s Day! This is known to many as the holiday for drinking and celebrating whether we are Irish or not. I’ll throw down the standard disclaimer that says please drink responsibly, do […]

A couple issues back I did a “Hail and Farewell” to WGY’s Chuck Custer, upon retiring after thirty-six-years with the company. Bye Chuck, and hi Doug Goudie, who partners with Kelly Lynch on News Radio 810/103.21 WGY. Doug’s not Chuck, Chuck’s not Doug, Kelly is Kelly. I suggest you give them a try. The partnership […]

General Eclectic played a lot of incredible gigs including clubs, colleges, outdoor venues, private parties, live radio and television. We even played as a duo at a campfire at the Petrified Sea Gardens in Saratoga Springs, New York. We were also scheduled to play at a warehouse in Troy that was located by the river, […]
