Today is the first of November. For many radio stations across the country, that means it’s the start of Christmas music season. For some, it even means they’re the “we’re gonna play so much Christmas music that you’ll hate the holiday by Thanksgiving” station.
I normally avoid any and all Christmas music anytime before the day after Thanksgiving, but this year… I’m making an exception. Thanks to one particular artist.

Everyone has guilty pleasures, especially when it comes to music. But should we really feel guilty about them? Absolutely not.
Alright, it’s been a few weeks since I posted one of these. I know. But life gets busy sometimes. We’ve all been there.
In my time away, I’ve had a better chance to gather some delicious items for The Round-Up.
Take a look…
We all have those songs, artists, or bands that just take us back to a certain place or time. You remember exactly what you were doing, or where you were, or who you were with.

This past week, I spent most of my free time lying on the couch fighting off a head cold. But it gave me a chance to check out some new music, and enjoy some delicious chicken noodle soup, courtesy of Campbell’s.

Here’s what I’ve found this week:
There are many musicians around the world that can make beautiful music all on their own. They can captivate a room with their voice or instrument, without anyone else to accompany them.
But when you take a group of those artists, and have them sing or play as an ensemble, they can perform something that’s not capable as a single person.
And it doesn’t even require them to be in the same room, play at the same time, or even know each other.
That’s where this website comes in.

Tuesday is here, which means time for another amateur music review from yours truly.

While I have been, and will always be an advocate and supporter of the brass section, I have always secretly wanted to be a string player. Just on the side. I learned to play “Twinkle, Twinkle” on the violin in 3rd grade, but haven’t touched a string instrument since. But boy, do I want to. And I want to be good at it. (None of those terrible screeching sounds I managed to make years ago.)
I stumbled upon this video today, and I had to try hard to resist jumping onto eBay and buying a violin. Check it out!
