Paul and I both had to admit that Wyoming was gorgeous, but we were burning out fast. We were tired of being trapped in a cramped and fully packed car with our traveling companions, tired of juggling entertainment for a 2 ½ year old and just plain tired of being on the road.  We had […]

I miss live music so much that I haven’t been able to get Madonna’s “Music” out of my head.  It’s a strange song for me to even think about as it was never a favorite of mine; however, the line “Music makes the people together, yeah” goes on in my head on loop.  Music – […]

Welcome back, hope you’ve well, hope everyone is safe. The theme this month is still topical BUT ALSO music intensive, with a touch of history. As I write this (June 14, 2020), the George Floyd Murder and aftermath continues, and overall (again as of this writing), as opposed to the past, the cause of peace […]

We have a strange relationship with all things digital. We long for the analog, the feel the touch, while we rail against the touch screen.

Billy Cole is a veteran to the music scene even when it’s behind the scenes. Now he has taken his experiences and combined them together for all of us to enjoy. The music shop owner has taken some time out to speak to us about his new release. RRX: Billy Cole, thank you so much […]

RRX: We’re speaking with Steve Marshall, actor, writer, director and comedian.  I know you’ve got a 917 area code. I’m always interested in where you grew up, whether it was your childhood, or your schoolmates, or your first foray out after having graduated high school, what’s the thing that drove you to end up where […]

Rockabilly is fun. Admit it. And imagine a guy in flash, singing about juke joints and dancing with a big, shiny stand-up bass – meet Jaybird Gorleski. Former bass player for Rocky Velvet, the Cobras and Slick Fitty, Jay Bird is a commanding stage presence. We sit down with Jaybird and talked shop and the […]

On Becoming a Hippie #15 – Kansas City Here I Come https://www.earthtrekkers.com/how-to-visit-gateway-arch-national-park-st-louis/ We stayed one night in Yellow Springs, Ohio where Debbie and Steve, our traveling companions, would stay for a visit with their friend. Getting to Kansas City from Ohio should have been pretty easy.  It was only about 9 hours away, though we […]
