Music

I’ve loved music all my life, from playing my mom’s country 45’s, loving The Monkees, bubblegum like the Archies, pop music on the local AM or FM radio shopping in record stores, and classic rock /progressive music from 96 Rock and now satellite radio. I even owned a record store for 8 years and helped write a music fanzine, Melody Hill.

I also started my own
Music Hall of Fame.

I love the Beatles, Bangles, Jethro Tull, ELP, ELO, Hank Williams, Dwight Yokum, Kacey Musgraves, Jellyfish, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Orange Hat and so much more. There was no doubt that musical content would be found in my blog! Here I’ve alphabetized some musical subjects of archived posts for you to check out.
