Singing from the Satellite 

I had a great time last night at the Satellite Coffee gig last night. What a great crowd! Thanks to everyone who came out.

Danny Snow is the host of Satellite's "Live in the Living Room" concert series. Not only was he the perfect M.C., but he was also the sound man, recording engineer, front of house manager, and lighting. He does it all. And, the "LITLR" series was his idea from the start. It's amazing how one person's idea can not only create a wonderful evening for so many people but could potentially…

My Life is a Musical Genre by Jason Riggs 

“What kind of music do you play?”

I get that a lot.  It’s a legitimate question.  But, one I still have trouble answering.

Everyone likes to say “I like all kinds of music,” but we don’t necessarily, do we?  In high school, your clique affiliation could be determined by your musical preference.  Stomps, Rockers, Freakers, Punks, and the most dangerous social sub sect of all…New Wavers (that’s what they were called before the term Goth was invented).

When I’m talking to someone new on a plane, at a…

Annual Blog Entry 

Hey Everybody.

Okay.  My last blog entry was over a year ago.  That's sad.  But, on the other hand, it seems like apologizing for not blogging is kind of the cool thing to do these days.  So, I blame perpetual coolness.  Also, I've been a little busy with life.  In a six month period, I got married, got a dog, and got a house.   

So, you'd think I'd have a lot to blog about.  Well, I got romantic songs to cover my illicit love affair and subsequent marriage.  I don't want to blog about my dog because…

I hope you had a good time.
Second, I must acknowledge Hayley from Salt Lake City.  She won the ‘reply' contest.  She was the fifth 
person to respond to last week's BINGO Recordings Newsletter.  Consequently, this post is dedicated to 
Now, what I am about to say here will cause some waves.  Some people are going to be incensed.  I am 
fully prepared for a wild eyed, torch bearing mob to

The day the music died and my show was cancelled. 

Hi everybody.

I love Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens.  I've always loved 50's rock'n'roll anyway.  But, when I was a teenager, the movie La Bamba came out.  I've heard that it did not get a wide release around the country.  But, it was in theaters in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

It is still one of my personal favorites.  Esai Morales is great in it.  (Morales is a criminally underated actor.)  For me and some of my friends, it was cultural/spiritual/rock'n'roll awakening.  And, Los Lobos put out a great…
