Sad news.

The great Chuck Berry has died at the age of 90.

I remember as a teenager listening to his records over and over and over. I think it’s fair to say he was my first rock idol, even though by the time I started listening to him in the 1970s I...

Robert Ritchie or Kid Rock has long considered himself a libertarian-leaning Republican, supporting Mitt Romney, Ben Carson, and finally Donald Trump’s...

I’ve featured their songs on the Video of the Day section of the sidebar several years ago. Their songs were mostly positive, great harmonies, never attacking anyone, and generally bring back fond memories of that time.

This is their signature...

This performance is actually from last year but the song is timeless.

Hillsdale is one of the few American colleges where no one worries about political correctness when it comes to celebrating Christmas.

This is a truly beautiful performance. Enjoy!
