I don't advocate hitchhiking or picking up hitchhikers, but...

This is a cool story. One celebrity picking up another!

I haven't been abducted...

Sorry I've been away from the blog for so long. I'll try to do better. Anyway, like the title says I haven't been abducted, but Sammy Hagar says he has! By Aliens!

One track mind...

Seems all of my posts lately have been Beatle oriented, but, hey when there is news... This past spring, Paul McCartney signed a deal with an independent label to reissue his solo and Wings catalog. Instead of chronological order, the releases begin with "Band On The Run" The 1973 album, re released on November 2nd, gets the deluxe treatment. [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/KBX2dySWGew" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /] I will feature some of the tracks on our Beatles hour Sunday at noon.

Lennon news

A few things for you if you are a John Lennon fan. The Everhart Museum has an interesting exhibit coming up. Looks like a must for Beatles fans and a great way to support the museum. Also, WVIA is showing "Lennon Naked" Sunday night (11/21). It's part of the "Masterpiece Theater" family of programs called "Masterpiece Contemporary". Looks interesting, but, I'm not sure it will tell us anything about the enigmatic Beatle that we don't already know. Still, the productions are usually very well done and worth a look.

Beatles for sale

Its finally happened... You can now purchase the music of The Beatles on Itunes. Years ago, when I first began using an mp3 player, I used a very small simple player. I could drag and drop files onto it from my computer, and easy as that, I was good to go. Itunes was to confining. I didn't want anything to do with it. That's what I told myself. Then I took the plunge. An Ipod Classic. 80 gigabytes of my most obscure music, old radio shows from the "golden age of radio" and even movies. I was hooked. Couldn't go anywhere without it. I even carried it with me inside the Mountain cabin! And all of a sudden Itunes was the greatest thing since sliced bread! So easy to organize! I came to the game late, but, I'm trying to keep up with the technology as best I can. Last month I picked up a new Ipod touch (a measly 32 gigs). Apps, email, music movies. Amazing. Say what you will - Apple knows how to push our buttons and adding the most successful band to your stable will sell more Ipods and bring more customers to the Itunes store.

This is funny...

Been away from the blog for awhile. Sorry about that. Thought this article was funny. John Mellencamp doesn't mind using the internet to sell his music, but, be careful out there!
