Austin Radio ‘Pirates’ Face Stiff Fine From FCC

There's an old Country song titled, "You Gotta Have a License." This is true for any commercial (or non-commercial) radio station in the U.S. Well, a couple in Austin felt that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules regarding licensing for the FM broadcast band didn't apply to them, so they put a "pirate" radio station on the air. That is now going to cost them a substantial amount of money.

Happy National Radio Day!

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! Man, when you've got 3 or 4 horns (trumpets/saxes) playing along with the band, it sounds HUGE! I've come to realize that Czech/German Polka, Mexican Norteño, and much of Western Swing are all rooted in that same, strong, danceable 2-beat rhythm; with the occasional waltz thrown in so dancers can catch their breath! Music--in any language--feeds the soul!

Tom Hanks’ Typewriter App Shoots To The Top Of The App Store

When I was in junior high school in the early-1970's (yes, I'm not a "Spring chicken" anymore), I learned to type in a summer school class, on a manual typewriter. At about that same time, my Mom bought an electric typewriter, and for the next 15 years or so, I used that machine to type out everything from homework reports in high school to song lyrics for bands I played in over the years. Sometime in the early-90's, it finally died, and I moved on to computers with word processors. I'm sure there are many people reading this who have never experienced the feeling of pushing down on a character key and hearing the "clack" as the letter hammer snapped into contact with the paper, transferring--character by character--your thoughts to a blank sheet of paper.

BBB Warns Social Media Users to Beware of Phishing Messages

These days almost every social media outlet allows for private messaging. Even Pinterest recently jumped on the messaging bandwagon. The unfortunate side effect is that scammers are quick to jump on too.

When con artists create emails, links or web pages assuming the identity of a trustworthy source and prompt you to share sensitive personal data, it’s called “phishing”. Phishing is big business for cyber criminals.
