That did make me sad when I read about it the other day. I always enjoyed the Delaney & Bonnie song "Soul Shake," which has gotten play over the years on AOR FM. They also appeared in the movie...

Check with Comcast. In my area, Comcast requires you to have their DVR in order to receive an HDTV signal from them, at a cost of $12.95 a month. If you don't get their DVR, you don't get HDTV,...

Isaac was great. What a bummer. I loved his Sam and Dave songs with David Porter, and his soundtrack work on "Shaft." He was a pretty good singer and performer, too, and funny as Chef. RIP, Black...

Steven Soderbergh. He's another guy that seems to be called on a lot for other filmmaker's DVD's for commentaries or interviews with directors.

Rupert Holmes wrote "Timothy," and later went on to have a solo hit with "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" in the late '70s. He also claimed he wrote "Timothy" in hopes it would get banned. The...

You've tried that many Kurosawa films, why not "Red Beard"? It's not like any of his epic-type films. It's almost like a soap opera, including the fact it's a story about doctors. I haven't seen...

I hope it gets to finish the run of 13 episodes. It would be good if another outlet picked it up. It gets small ratings for a major broadcast network, but much more than the average cable show. It...

I like "I Put A Spell On You." I can't say that I'm familiar with most of the rest of his work. I think his influence can't be underestimated, though, especially in terms of showmanship. There...

They don't have the original music. They actually started running "WKRP" in June. "Johnny Fever" announced he just played "Youngblood," and it was definitely not that song. The WKRP reruns in on...

I like this show. It's not perfect, but it's more interesting a lot of things on right now. It brings back a lot of memories of growing up in the '70s. It captures the feel very well, from the...

It's not pop-rock, it's almost straight pop. It's more Bacharach than Beatles. It also has an exotica influence, especially the two instrumentals. It never jumped out at me, either, until I...

It's on twice every weekday morning on the WGN cable superstation, which might cut into DVD sales. I actually watch it sometimes if I'm awake and around to see it. It's a guilty pleasure, emphasis...

"All Summer Long" from the "All Summer Long" album might have made a good single. Maybe "Lonely Sea" from "Surfin' USA." Other than that, there are some good album cuts, but none that jump out as...

I think there are many reasons it probably won't happen. One is that I don't think the Stones like competing with their younger selves, either for the good or bad. They are still touring, after...
