How’s your January going? Are you keeping up on your New Year’s resolutions? January seems to be the month of broken resolutions. How long does it take you to give up on your list? Have you kept up on your list past the first weekend? Good intentions and all, but generally nearly impossible to keep up with.

That’s why I don’t keep a list, although there are always some things I do to try to improve myself. My batting average isn’t bad right now on January 6, but the year is young. Let’s all try to keep the good things going this year (or at least until MLK Day).

My quest for the perfect podcast continues, but today’s is a goodie. Let’s break some resolutions together while listening to Translator, the Plimsouls, the Three O’Clock, Van Morrison, Junior Parker, Sonny Biy Williamson II, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Walter Horton, Nancy Wilson, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Labelle, Fleetwood Mac, the Moody Blues, and Tony Joe White.

This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
