You're probably unaware of the fact that today, August 20th, is "National Radio Day."

Yes, the medium that started all electronic media to come after, has its own "national day." From Marconi's first transatlantic transmission of the Morse code letter 'S' ("..." or, dit-dit-dit) in 1901, to today's many choices for music, talk, sports, etc., radio is still the majority of peoples' choice for entertainment and up-to-the-minute news and weather reports.

Pivo and Kolaches, Cerveza and Tamales

While I was not 'raised' on Polka music (as so many here in South Texas have been), I must say I had a blast playing at the 3rd annual (and my 2nd-ever) Polka show at the Flag City Opry last night!

Music--in any language--feeds the soul!
