WEDNESDAY 2/15/12- There have been grumbles among conservative activists that the Fox News Channel is no longer speaking for them as it once did. According to Poltico’s Keach Hagey, the grumblers are picking up on a strategy that has been under way for some time — a “course correction,” as Fox chief Roger Ailes put it last fall — with the network distancing itself from the tea party cheerleading that characterized the first two years of President Obama’s presidency. Lately, Fox has increasingly promoted its straight-news talent in the press and conducted some of the toughest interviews and debates of the Republican primary season.

"Listen to the Music"

WEDNESDAY 2/1/12- Music is an integral part of our everyday lives. We carry our iPods, listen to satellite radio driving to work, and hear it playing in the background at our favorite restaurants or while we are shopping. But while we listen, we seldom really hear the music. If you truly listen to your favorite songs, you will find that the lyrics often tell a story or have a message; they may inspire or spark your imagination; and a particular song may make long forgotten memories reappear as if it were just yesterday.

“Listen To The Music: The Words You Don't Hear When You Listen To The Music” is the result of Steve Richards’ 40-year passion for the music that he and 78 million other Baby Boomers grew up with.
