Satellite radio is fast becoming one of the more popular must have items. You may be one of the many people who are trying to figure out what all the fuss is about and why should you pay for a radio service when radio has not cost any money for many years. This article will take a look at why satellite radio is the wave of the future.

The first thing you need to think about is the crystal clear signal you get from your satellite system. You get a high quality digital signal coming from satellites way up in the sky. You can expect CD quality sound coming from your radio when you have satellite radio.

The next thing you need to think about is the vast variety of programming you will receive. You can expect to get well over one hundred channels in so many different styles it may make your head spin. Instead of choosing from your two or three local country stations you now have a lot of different choices. If talk radio is your thing there are a bunch of stations to pick from. I do not care what style of music is your favorite; you are bound to find something to suit your needs. One other perk is the signal goes everywhere you go. It does not matter whether you are going to the grocery store or across the country your satellite signal will be right there with you.

I think the main reason someone should choose satellite radio over the local variety is because it is free from commercials. It is hard to imagine radio without commercials but for just a few bucks a month it is now possible. Think about when you are driving to work listening to your favorite local channel and they play commercial after commercial. It gets old after a while and you may find yourself saying get on with the music. If you spend a lot of time in your truck or car satellite radio is an obvious option.

There are a lot of people now subscribing to one of the two main services. Even though you will have to pay a small monthly fee and buy some start up equipment like a receiver for your car or a home stereo that will receive the satellite radio signal the benefits far outweigh the costs in my opinion. This new breed of radio will change the way you listen to the radio.

Kathy’s Kitchen’s Kathy!
Image by Wally Hartshorn
Hey! It’s Kathy! We’ve bought Kathy’s Kitchen stuff for months now (usually from the grocery store), but had never actually met Kathy! Her kitchen is located in Virginia, Illinois (35 miles WNW of Springfield). I picked up 2 jars of salsa (one "Mild Hot", the other "Mexican"). I’ll let you know how they taste.

view from the Hilton’s 29th floor, looking NE downtown Springfield

The building is totally retro, but the grounds surrounding it are nice. As you can see, one of the problems with downtown Springfield is the large amount of space taken up by parking lots. These are mostly empty on the weekends and holidays. It’s probably worse by the Capitol. The hospital in the background does need them, and they do have a multi-level parking garage, it’s just that downtown could use even more garages.

The Queers
Event on 2018-01-25 19:00:00
with Soda City Riot, When Particles Collide, Switchblade Villain
The Queers are punk rock band formed in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in 1982. Their sound is heavily influenced by the Ramones and '60s bubblegum pop and their songs often feature humorous and juvenile lyrics. The original line up consisted of Joe King (2) (Vocals/Guitar), Tulu (2) (Vocals/Bass), and Wimpy (2) Rutherford (Drums). The band released one 7" EP with this line up. In 1984, the band released a second 7", this time with Tulu on drums, Wimpy singing, and Keith Hages playing bass. The band split shortly afterwards but Joe would occasionally use the name throughout the '80s, playing with various line-ups (King's most frequent collaborators were JJ Rassler (guitar) and Hugh O'Neill (2) (drums)) for sporadic shows in Boston and New Hampshire, although there were no recordings created at this time, and by the end of the decade the band had pretty much become inactive. In 1990, King and O'Neill decided to get the band going again and recorded the band's first LP, "Grow Up". Around the same time, The Queers became acquainted with Screeching Weasel, beginning a long-term association between the two bands. After the "Grow Up" LP, King and O'Neill met Chris Barnard, aka B-Face, who would join as the group's bassist and this would constitute the "classic" Queers line-up (although O'Neill would be in and out of the band and the band would generally tour with a second guitarist). The group signed with Lookout! Records in 1993 for the album "Love Songs For The Retarded" (produced by Ben Weasel) and stayed through 1996's "Don't Back Down". After that, the classic line-up split for good, with B-Face quitting due to growing tension between him and Joe and O'Neill being diagnosed with brain cancer (he would pass away in January 1999). The Queers would continue with Joe recording and touring with an ever-rotating cast of backing musicians. The band jumped to Hopeless Records for 2 LPs and returned to Lookout! in 2002 for one album before departing the label for good, eventually reclaiming all their albums from the label in 2006 due to a lack of royalty payments. The band currently records for Asian Man Records.In 2001, the original line up of Joe King, Wimpy, and Tulu reunited and recorded and EP under the name "Drunken Cholos".

Country Bob’s
Image by Wally Hartshorn
I knew that I had to stop at this booth because Country Bob’s is from Centralia, IL, 107 miles south of Springfield. Technically that’s outside of the 100-mile radius that I’m trying to stay within, but it’s where I grew up! Although I’ve lived in Springfield since 1986, there’s still a part of me that considers Centralia my real hometown.

Unfortunately, Bob himself wasn’t there, but I did get to sample some of his All Purpose Sauce! It was very good, but unfortunately they didn’t have any for sale at the show. However, in Springfield you can find it at Schnucks, Cub Foods, Shop N Save, IGA, and even Wal-Mart!

With any luck, I might be able to do some grilling his year (although I’d love to get a real grill rather than the little portable "suitcase" grill that I use), so I’m going to have to pick up some of his All Purpose Sauce.…

Downloading music online used to be a dream on the coffee table. People even talked and fantasized about the imaginary music jukebox that can play music on order and anyone can just download whatever music they want from an inexhaustible jukebox. Today, downloading music online is a piece of cake. And you have a few options. Anyone can be downloading free or paid music online. Before you get too excited, we shall take a look at both options to download online music and how you can save your money while downloading music online.

Free Music MP3 Downloads

Now, downloading online music can be free but you need to know where to go to. Here are just a few places you can go to on the internet to find free music MP3 downloads. – Indy makes it possible for you to find new independent music. Go ahead and download Indy. It allows you to rate the songs you listen to. What I love about Indy is the artificial intelligence is quick to pick up what kind of music you love and would keep sending you music that you would find enjoyable.

Epitonic – Epitonic gives you a chance to listen and download music online of independent and underground artists in US. They are normally in MP3 or WMA format and generally playable on our computer.

Paid Music MP3 Downloads

Downloading paid music online should not be unfamiliar to you. These are several established places to download music for a fee.

iTunes – iTunes is synonymous with iPod music. You can find a whole range of music genres there. Each music MP3 download costs 99 cents. Downloading is fast and easy and the search function is sophisticated.

Connect – Connect is Sony’s pay-per-track service. It serves many different brands of music from a large network. But the problem is it is not so user-friendly. The music files are in ATRAC3 format, a proprietary audio format which can be recognized and played only on Sony MP3 players.

There are also other online music stores that offer similar downloading services. Each site can vary in the number of music MP3 downloads they have, the music genre, the customer service and so on. These sites allow downloading music online for a membership subscription fee. Most nowadays charge you a one-time fee for unlimited access. For more details on how downloading music online can be done cheaply, check out my music download blog.
