Christmas Music Memories

Music has always been an important part of my life. To this day, I can’t do much of anything without music in the background. I remember my dad introducing me to different styles of music at a young age. He always seemed to have a story to go along with the songs he played, which may explain why I relate a lot of my memories to music....more

Fa la la la WHATEVER

It is no big secret that I am not fond of winter or Christmas.

Do They Know It's Christmas Time Yet? Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Band Aid

We've become accustomed to celebrity charitable endorsements, but let me transport you back to a simpler time long ago, exactly 25-years ago in the magical, shiny 1980s, when it was rare to see contemporary famous icons stepping forward to align themselves with a cause.  What's more, a group of disparate performers uniting to create an original song to raise awareness and funds for a new charity?  It had never been done until Bob Geldof, Midge Ure and a star-studded entourage formed the ad hoc Band Aid and released "Do They Know It's Christmas" in 1984. ...more
