Regina Richards And Red Hot (40th Anniversary Edition)

Ok, I’m totally going to date myself…which is unusual here, since that usually involves a package of Oreos, a Magic Mike movie marathon and a box of tissues. However, back in 1986 this was my jam: Ahhh…the 80’s when invading people’s privacy was sexy and so were sax solos! Regina’s Madonna-esque sound (and need for…

Crys Matthews’ Changemakers

When people think protest music, Bob Dylan or one of the Guthrie’s might come to mind. If you’re like me and prefer divas, Joni Mitchell or Joan Baez might be up your alley. Although to be honest, I don’t know any of their catalogs and couldn’t pick them out of a police line-up. Until recently,…

Most of my divas have gone into a COVID hibernation, a few have released a single here and there, but that doesn’t…

In my darkest days, music has always been the light at the end of the tunnel. My divas always know the right thing to sing and brightened my spirits in concert. This year a few of my old-school divas put out albums and I had time to discover some new-to-me divas. This year wasn’t the…

Pay For Gay

I’m a cord cutter, not by choice, that’s what happens when you marry a geek. There’s a whole lot of technology going on in our house that I don’t understand. I have to tell the Alexa to turn on lights (if she listens), I have apps on my phone (somewhere) to see if our garage…
