C.C. AND COMPANY

Of course, by today's standards this film is rather tame and cheesy. That said, it still made for good relaxation on a Sunday night and was a movie made in an era from which I haven't seen many films.

MEDIA-RELATED STUFF

I like that new program on WWCR 12160 Saturdays at 12:30 p.m. Eastern.

What happened to Doyle Stanley on WWCR?

Both Gene Brown and Michael Guido both sound a lot older.

I like that program the two people talking about the news that airs on Revelation TV.

MEDIA-RELATED STUFF

Glad "In the Market With Janet Parshall" has moved to an earlier time-slot on Joy 1250.

Have been getting into Eric Metaxas' show lately.

Have also just discovered that guy on WSB Atlanta weekdays from 10:00-midnight.

RADIO-RELATED STUFF

Have been enjoying Stephanie Trussell on WLS.

CHRF Montreal is now a soft AC station with some talk programming as well.

Accu Radio provides a wide variety of music and is easy to use.

I hope too many small internet stations don't suffer this year.

98.9 The Drive was coming in fairly well Saturday morning.

This Sunday afternoon  at The Black Dog in Stirling. We’ll be
playing music there for about 3 hours. Welcomed by both staff and the patrons in the lounge and restaurant, our music is appreciated. 
 
Once a month on Sunday afternoons. This Sunday afternoon (January 17th). Time is from 2 pm until 5.
 
The format is a ‘song circle’ with the lead changing from person to person among the group. Everyone has the option to offer a tune when their turn comes around, or pass to their neighbour if they’d rather. Depending on the music, the mood, choice of instruments, etc. some will choose to support whoever is leading a song, others may prefer to sit out and listen.  DSCF1663 
 
We invite you to come out and join us, making music with old friends; for sure, there’ll be some new faces too.

Remember....
 
“Bring your instruments, your voices and your music. It’s
a
ll unplugged
and it’s all good! Guitar, bass,
harmonica, banjo,
mandolin, ukulele,
fiddle, accordion,
flute, celtic harp – the list goes on.
 
“There may be only 4 or 5 o
f
us or maybe a whole room full of
musicians. A place for
‘first-timers’ and experienced players alike.
A
good bunch of pe
ople playin
g all kinds of music together.
People in
their teens all the way through proto-geezers. Maybe even an incipient-geriat or two....
 
 
“The blues does not rule.
Any acoustic music from punk
to polka!”

Hope to see you Sunday afternoon in Stirling.

MEDIA-RELATED STUFF

Have been picking up an oldies station on 980 or 990 lately.

Heather Wade seems like she could be a good replacement for Art Bell if he decided to continue "Midnight In the Desert" after all.

Glad Dean Johnson is back on WBZ over the holidays.

Man, Much has really gone downhill.

Enjoyed the article about the early pjs on YTV that appeared in Torontoist.
