Tonight's Vinyl Selection


Jethro Tull


Wide and varied yet cohesive, Tull's 1971 concept album is one of his finest.

I remember when he came to play a concert at Kent State, I was too poor to buy a ticket, so I sat outside the gym with a couple other financially challenged friends and we listened to it from there! Those were the days.

Includes the title cut, "Cross Eyed Mary", "Locomotive Breath".

Just a thought ....

Guns are not allowed within the U.S. Capitol building.

And all of our congress people have government-paid health care.

What does that tell you?

I'd like to know

what, if anything, is our Secretary of Education doing about stopping these school murders?

I haven't seen her or heard her speak up about it at all. If anyone has, please enlighten me.

I would think that this issue would be of more importance than her relentless crusade promoting "school choice" and making things easier for accused rapists.

Has anyone heard

I don't follow Twitter, and am wondering if our illustrious president has sent congratulations to our Olympic Women's hockey team who won the gold medal against archrival Canada last night. Does anyone know?


Stands before a man whose daughter was shot in the back by a nut using an assault weapon....

And says that a ban on assault weapons wouldn't have prevented this massacre?

Kentucky Bourbon, Wisconsin Cheese could be targets in trade war

If Donnie enacts his trade policy.

From NPR.

"The administration is weighing strict new limits on imported steel and aluminum in hopes of shoring up home-grown metal industries.

But European allies are warning of possible retaliation, including tariffs aimed at politically sensitive products such as bourbon and orange juice."

"With overseas sales of around $1 billion a year, bourbon is just a drop in the barrel of overall U.S. exports. But it's big business in Kentucky, home of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Likewise, cheese from House Speaker Paul Ryan's home state of Wisconsin could be on the cutting board if America's trading partners fight back with import restrictions of their own. Orange juice from the swing state of Florida could also feel the squeeze."

All Republican governed states! Oh, the irony. Ha Ha


Tonight's Vinyl Selection

Frampton Comes Alive

Peter Frampton


The biggest selling live album of all time. A must have for anyone into rock music in the '70s.

Includes "Show Me The Way," "Baby, I Love Your Way," and "Do You Feel Like We Do," (the 14 minute long version)

You'll get a lump in your throat, I did


As news of the deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., unfolded last week, Pia Guerra, a 46-year-old Vancouver-based artist, felt helpless. She couldn’t bring herself to go to sleep, so she began to draw.

About 6 a.m., she came up with an idea. One of the first victims identified among the 17 people killed was Aaron Feis, an assistant football coach and security guard. Feis was shot after reportedly throwing himself in front of students during the rampage. Guerra was moved by the thought of this heroic man, the father of a young child, standing in front of bullets for students.

“It’s not often that an image pops in your brain and you feel a lump in your throat,” Guerra told The Washington Post.

The Allman Brothers Band

Debut self titled album


One of the best debut albums ever by an American band -- rock, southern rock, blues, a bit of psychedelia for the times -- a classic.

Includes one of their best known hits, "Whipping Post". How could you not be blown away the first time you heard that!
