What does Jonathan have to say?



Now What?

So the mid-term elections didn't necessarily go how I wanted, but what to do now?    I've been going through phases: 1) Anger.   This doesn't last because picking fights with "the other side" doesn't go very far.  I'm probably not going to change people's minds on some key differences.  Those who think this is a Christian nation will not understand how that statement makes me feel rather un-easy as a Jew.  2. Happy.  I can be grateful that I live in a country where we have free elections. 3. Anger.  The second phase is making me angry again because I'm thinking about all those political ads financed by third party groups that were filled with generalizations and lies. 4. Exercise.  I found myself very motativated to run yesterday.  When I got tired, I started thinking about things "the other side" said during this election that got me steamed and I was able to pick up the pace in my run. 5. Anger/Pride.  I'm angry about the things I was thinking about during my run, but proud I ran faster than expected. 6. Fatigue.  I'm feeling an overload from all the chatter about the election and our freedom.  Also, I'm tired from the run. 7. Hunger.  I'm ready to eat something because food is usually a way for me to have a temporary escape from something that's making me angry. 8. Delight.  I forgot the McRib is back!  Woo hoo!  (This is not a paid endorsement for McDonald's.  I truly love the McRib.) 9. Disgust.  Did I really just have three McRib sandwiches?! 10.  Anger.  How could I have three McRibs?!  I mean they're good, but I need to pace myself. 11. Denial.  I didn't really have three McRibs and Ron Johnson didn't really beat Russ Feingold. 12. Acceptance.  I guess this means I just have to wait three days to have another McRib and two years to vote again.

Loved the playlist from you and Kitty yesterday morning! Who chooses the playlist during your show? The music is always so great! And thanks again for cheering me up after the election failure. Also, could you all cool it on the Ray LaMontagne..... its not good enough to play as often as your station does.

We still miss you Stevie Ray Vaughan
It's hard to believe it's been 24 years since we lost Stevie Ray Vaughan in that helicopter crash after a show at Alpine Valley. I've talked to lots of people who were at that concert, which also featured Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, and...

World's Worst iPod: Donny Osmond "Soldier of Love"
It's hard to believe that Donny Osmond scored his second biggest solo hit in 1989, but it's true! "Soldier of Love" went all the way to #2 on the charts. When the song was released, the record company was afraid no one would buy a new Donny...

Butch Vig--the actor?
Butch Vig and his pal from Garbage Duke Erikson, Freedy Johnson, and Jay Moran get together every once in a while as "The Know-it-all Boyfriends." Well they're getting the band back together, and this time they're doing it for a good cause--to...

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the song here...

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The G-rating probably...
