31 Dec 2009, 11:47 by marco78trainLooking back on 2009 I can’t say it was a great year. Musically, nor personally. It did have its moments though. The year brought many good records, but so far I haven’t heard one that completely blew me away. I must note here that I haven’t heard many of the critics favorites yet, so I might change my mind on 2009 later on. ;-) Today, however, I can only write about what I now know.
Not until I saw The Decemberists perform their Hazards Of Love album at the Crossing Border festival it dawned on me that this was the record that impressed me most this year. The cd is very good, but live it sounded really fantastic. In fact, the concert was one of the best I ever attended, perhaps only surpassed in greatness by those of Bruce Springsteen (2008) and Ben Folds (2007).
I also liked the new and more traditional sound Alela Diane presented on her second album. I don’t think it’s a complete masterpiece, but it contains many beautiful songs. …
22 Oct 2008, 07:49 by MrStyle1. How did you get into 29? Anita Baker
She was a regular on the radio station I use to listen to at night.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? The Emotions
These girls are my mom's favorite. She loves ballads and more than likely "Don't Ask My Neighbor" was the first song I heard by them.
3. What's your favorite lyric by 33? Kirk Franklin
"Someone asked a question, why do we sing? When we lift our hands to Jesus what do we really mean? Someone may be wondering when we sing our song, at times we maybe crying and nothing even wrong. I sing because I'm happy, I sing because I'm free."
4. How did you get into 49? The Williams Brothers
On accident I downloaded one of their songs and their words touch me so that I needed more!
5. How many albums by 13 do you own? Patti LaBelle
I have never bought an Patti Labelle album. My mom owned "Flame" or something like that. It was a really good CD but Patti isn't an artist I actually buy full albums of.

4 Feb 2008, 02:44 by BadgerJohn31The description and playlist below are from the weekly radio show (A Brief History Of…) that my friend and I host on WSUM 91.7fm Madison (the University of Wisconsin's radio station). We selected songs we felt were either historically important or just representative of each specific topic. Please comment if you feel we missed something or just to give your opinion. Remember, however, that we do this show in an hour (about 50 minutes of music). Track length is a major factor in our decisions (shorter is usually better). Thanks!
A Brief History of…Funk traces James Brown’s creation from the mid-60s through its period of peak popularity in the mid-70s. The first segment explains funk’s southern origins, from Georgia’s James Brown to New Orleans’ The Meters. Following the related genre of Southern Soul, Funk lyrics often expressed social concerns. Furthermore, Funk was a genre that artists from many other genres incorporated into their own music. …
