Friday afternoon, quiet inside, raining lightly outside. My wife is out interviewing and serving her clients and I’m at home with the cats. It’s as good a time as any to take a seat in front of my stereo system and do some listening. The power amplifiers have been warming for the past hour and should be ready to do proper justice to the signals I mean to feed to them. As for program material, it occurs to me that, while I’ve used parts of Gustav Holst’s The Planets for critical…Continue
MUSIC YOU MAY HAVE FORGOTTEN!
A friend asked me to find some music for him. He thought that me being a working musician for more than 30 years that I might have an inside handle on certain music. He was right, but my contacts are only good if they're still alive and still have ties to record labels. However, I have an enormous record collection and had the piece he was looking for at my finger tips.…Continue

I know that country is often the music genre that people love to hate, and I frequently hear people say "I listen to everything...except country," but I have long been a country fan. I grew up in the South, and I was raised on Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, and George Strait. I love country. At least, I love this kind of country. Country is not inherently bad. It is a uniquely American art form…Continue
Sure, God probably gets all of the jokes here. How about everyone's second favorite imaginary place?
Here's a new post from my blog, AMW's World of Fame, Shame, and Getting in the Game:
My iPod seemed to be making a point of shuffling songs by Sinéad O’Connor into my ears the other day as I took my hour-long walk around the high school track. Earlier, a friend on Facebook had mentioned O’Connor in a status update. So I got to thinking about Sinéad and her hardly typical career as a singer and songwriter.
Penn Jillette’s Private Rock & Roll, Doughnut and Bacon Party
Be forewarned —
This really is Penn’s private party. He’s paying for everything and JREF has nothing to do with it. This party will be whatever Penn wants; it’s not a JREF…
Larry Norman, Randy Stonehill, Phil Keaggy, Second Chapter of Acts, John Fischer, The Way, Oak Ridge Boys, Elvis, "Gospel," holy hymns, church choirs, "sacred" music, Young Life Songs and Creations spiral songbook. . .it was, and is, an endless composition of brain-saturation. I listened to countless hours of it, went to concerts, bought the albums, met some of the "artists" like Stonehill, Fischer, Barry McGuire, Yohann Anderson and others. Believe it or not, I once sang in an 8000-voice…Continue
Ok, so of course I have to start off with why I became a christian in the first place. I was 'saved' when i was 14 at the end of June, right before my first year of high school. During my 6th and 7th grade years, I became very depressed. I had no true interest in life and in was due largely to the fact that I had no plans for my life. I didn't know what I wanted, and basically let everybody else, but myself, make my choices.
My 8th grade year, I went to a new school and was surrounded…Continue
Can you talk for a bit about some of the lyrical themes on the album?
It’s a slew of topics. “Live And Live Again” is sort of my thoughts on evolution. It’s just shocking to me that people have such a hard time swallowing that theory…Continue
