When I worked at FYE over one Winter break, a customer walked in and began to browse the Vinyl Records on display. I asked him if he needed any assistance, to which he replied with the question “Yeah. What do you know about Pink Floyd?”. To any Pink Floyd fan, this is the quickest wayContinue reading “A Retrospective View on Pink Floyd’s Debut”

World Sound

Have you ever asked yourself how many Music genres are there around the world? Since my show is about “World Sounds” I believe that we need to know how many?

Ghost Army

Summer is always a time when Hollywood releases its biggest blockbuster movies.  The premise of these blockbuster movies always seems to be similar, where a hero has to face a challenge with seemingly insurmountable odds.  This is definitely the case of this summer’s biggest blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick.  The movie does a great job puttingContinue reading “Ghost Army”

Classic Review: The Black Parade

When I say “emo”, a very specific image probably comes to mind: Black hair with long, side swept bangs covering one or both eyes, black clothing, and lots and lots of eyeliner.

When It Snows, It Squalls

I’m a big fan of your music, Luke Combs, but here in Illinois “When It Rains, It Pours” is overrated. Reality is that when it snows it squalls, and that is exactly what happened on April 1st and 2nd of 2022, well, mostly.

Gone Phish-ing

This past summer I took a few days off and went Phish-ing with my son. I consider myself a lifelong ‘angler’, and I have also attended hundreds of concerts, but this would be my very first experience at a show that came with a bit of a reputation. In my mind, I thought that PhishContinue reading “Gone Phish-ing”

Internship at Disney

Hello everybody, and welcome to yet another instalment of “Hailey has to write a blog post for the radio website”.  I wasn’t entirely sure what to write about this time.  I’m not overly depressed like a year ago, and I did a hopeful look back last time I did this.  The next logical step wouldContinue reading “Internship at Disney”
