I was driving home from Kalamazoo on Friday evening when I got burned out of Howard Stern replays. I was driving my own car, so I had my original Sirius player with me. With Stern only doing 3 days a week, by the time Friday rolls around, I've likely heard *most* of the bits/segments, so if I'm in the car, it is either tie for sports radio or a spin around the Sirius dial. One of my stops is Channel 31 - the Coffeehouse. I heard this song from Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass and *had* to take a photo of the display so I could remember the name of the song. After my love of Christmas Village buildings , this might be my second-most-embarrassing guilty pleasure. Here's an AMAZING live effort from Herb and the boys.

My name is Jake and I am a Howard Stern fan. Because of that, I am a Sirius Satellite Radio subscriber. I admit that I use it **mostly** if not exclusively for Howard Stern. (think what you will of me for being a fan. ) One of the other stations that I listen to is something called " Outlaw Country " - which is a station " devoted to Outlaw Country music, along with various related genres including classic honkey tonk, alternative country, and roots rock ." Sounds about right. I have tagged a few songs on the station - where I get alerted when I'm in the car and the song is on. One of them is "Atlantic City" as performed by The Band. I haven't heard the song played elsewhere on the dial (But...I rarely listen to the radio besides Howard 100 and this station!) It is a song written by Bruce Springsteen that showed up on his solo record "Nebraska" back in 1982 . It is a pretty dark song, but really well performed by the guys i
I heard the song 'History of Lovers' by Calexico and Iron and Wine on either Left of Center or Disorder and immediately dug it. I'm really into Iron and Wine and I have some Calexico, so I figured I'd give it a listen. (on Sirius, you see the name of the artist(s) and the song title when the song is playing). About half way through it, I 'tagged' it in my radio. On Sirius, you get a selected number of 'tags' whereby when ever that song pops up anywhere on the Sirius network, the radio alerts you and you can go have a listen. It's a terrific feature that I've chocked full of Wilco, Sufjan Stevens, The Staples Singers, and a few others. This allows you to not miss any of your 'favorite' songs. After a few times of hearing it in the car, I grabbed 'History of Lovers' in the itunes music store. I've been listening to the entire collaboration ever since. "History" really sticks out for me, so I dug a bit more. I fo
Hope Santa brought you guys everything you ask for! I had a good few days with family and friends. The holidays always go way, way too fast. Next up: New Years Eve. What's on the docket, you ask? I'm not sure. Nat and I may be heading to a few 'house parties' in Chicago or we might be heading to Coloma Michigan. Interested in joining us? Drop me a line. As for gifts, Nattie Claus gave me the Sirius Sportster Replay and she activated my Sirius account. Too cool. She also got me a 'home' dock, so I can listen to Stern at home! I've only begun to fool around with the radio and I'm already all geeked up about it. This should be lotsa fun. Santa Claus scored me a new pair of courderoys (not Corederoys!) and a vaccuum (not a Dyson !), which was needed. Inside the family, we do a 'grab-bag', where you only buy for one person with a limit of $75 or so. Shaun had me. I got Blind Faith's self titled release , Cream Live, Volume 2 , and Rick Danko
