Holidays On The Hi-Fi Playlist

After a lengthy career in radio, I honestly have a love/hate relationship with Christmas music. I played a LOT of it over the years, and in all honesty most of the songs I played lacked something. For a long time, I couldn’t figure out what that something was. I tried to blame it on the fact that I played ‘Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer” waaaaaaay too many times, but that wasn’t it at all.

Then back in 2003 or 2004 when I was involved in running the legendary WAKR radio in Akron (the station where Alan Freed actually coined the term Rock N’ Roll) and there I finally realized what the problem was. The music I loved during the holidays was truly the good ole songs. Today they’re called Christmas standards, but back when I was growing up Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, and Perry Como were everywhere during the holiday season. In the mid 2000’s WAKR was catering to an older audience and playing those standards during the holidays and memories came flooding back.

Last year in my spare time I sat down during the holidays and attempted to create the ultimate Christmas playlist. I wanted to create a list of songs that you could play during a holiday party and even during Christmas Dinner. So this year my gift to you is a playlist I call Holidays On The Hi-Fi. And thanks to you can enjoy these songs no matter where you listen to music online. Happy Holidays!

Liquor Stores

In past posts, I’ve mentioned my love of signs. Neon signs and vintage signs, it doesn’t matter; I love them all.

Recently I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and noticed that some of my most popular pictures happened to be signs from liquor stores. I’m not sure if it’s a coincidence, or I just attract those kind of people, but I have to admit, there is something alluring about liquor store signs.

You can see more signs from liquor stores (and of course other things too) on Instagram. Just click HERE to view my feed.
