Anyone Can Be A Ham!

I've written several posts here about my hobby of amateur radio (aka "ham" radio). It's a hobby for anybody interested in communications (emergency and otherwise), electronics, technology, of just having fun! Age, gender, or having a disability need not keep you from getting your amateur radio license, and joining in on the fun! Take, for example, a third-grader from Lumberton, TX (near Beaumont), who recently obtained her ham license!

Skeeter Singing With The Legendary Buck Owens

Country Music Hall of Fame member Buck Owens passed away on this day (March 25th) in 2006. I worked for Buck on one of his Bakersfield, CA radio stations (KTIE-FM) in the mid-1990's. During that time, Buck's dream of a first-class steakhouse/nightclub/concert venue/museum, the Crystal Palace was being built right next door.

After it opened, Buck performed there with his band, the Buckaroos, nearly every weekend. One particular night, I was at the Palace with my best friend since high school (and phenomenal guitarist/singer), David Langley, who had come down from Fresno to celebrate his birthday. Buck spotted me in the audience, and asked me to get up and sing a song with him and the Buckaroos.

Skeeter’s New Specs

Got a new pair of glasses today from Texas State Optical. Titanium frames, Crizal lenses, and--yes--they're bifocals. It happens with time. These are probably the lightest-weight glasses I've ever had, and I started wearing glasses in the eighth grade! What do you think? Stylish? Cool? Fashionable?

I like 'em!

The ‘Houston Kid’ Comes Home

Singer/songwriter Rodney Crowell hasn't had a hit song on the Country charts since the summer of 1992. At least, not as an artist. As a writer, several of his songs have been hits since then, with the most recent one being "Making Memories of Us," which Keith Urban took to the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, where it stayed for five weeks! His songs have been recorded by Waylon Jennings ("I Ain't Livin' Long Like This"), The Oak Ridge Boys ("Leavin' Louisiana In The Broad Daylight"), numerous cuts by Emmylou Harris (for whom he played guitar in her infamous Hot Band before starting his solo career), Bob Seger ("Shame On The Moon") and a list way too long to continue here. He scor
