Another Friday the 13th is coming at the end of the week. How does that make you feel?
The superstition that is Friday the 13th dates back to the mid-19th century. For the past 150 or so years, it has inspired a horror film franchise, caused people to call in sick to work and lock themselves in their houses, and always seems to be the scapegoat for anything bad that happens on that particular day.
In the past week, we discussed what artist you loved so much you would wait in line all day to see. We got a lot of input, both on the radio and online. Some of you said you’d wait in line all day to see someone for the first time, and others were “superfans”, and would wait all day to see a performer they’d seen several times before.
Any opportunity to stimulate a kids’ brain during the summer is good. Parents, don’t forget there’s a way that kids can have fun this summer in an educational setting at The National Center For Children’s Illustrated Literature (NCCIL). Every Saturday afternoon, the NCCIL hosts “Family Fun Saturdays”.
In the spirit of the 2012 summer concert rush, a few days ago I asked you “What show would you wait in line all day to see?“. Now I want to know, based on the thoughts you shared, which artist or band is most worthy of the time-honored tradition of waiting all day outside a concert venue to attend the concert.
Whenever Casey Donahew comes to town, there’s sure to be a crowd. This Thursday night should prove to be no exception as the Burleson, Texas native and his band plan to take over The Lucky Mule Saloon.
Shortly after the Supreme Court announced their ruling on “Obamacare”, the controversial healthcare bill that will make it mandatory for all Americans to have healthcare insurance and expand Medicaid benefits, we asked you if you agreed with the decision. The results were as close as the 5-4 Supreme Court verdict on the case.
It’s summer, and the concert circuit has kicked into high gear. It seems like everybody and their brother is on tour, and I love it. It seems like there’s at least one great concert within driving distance to choose from every night. Summer concerts make me think of the best shows I’ve ever seen. It also makes me think of the hours spent waiting in line to get into a venue to buy tickets and see these concerts.
Within hours of the Supreme Court ruling that upheld the national healthcare mandate – commonly referred to as Obamacare – people with strong opinions reacted. We got to hear from a lot of politicians, television news anchors and their guest, and even legendary country music star Charlie Daniels. The only thing that surprised me about the 75 year-old’s comments is that he tweeted them. What happened to the good old days when musicians wrote when they felt strongly about something?
There’s a new restaurant getting ready to open its doors in Abilene. Shogun Steak and Sushi Bar has taken over the space that used to be Asia Buffet on the corner of South Danville and South 14th Street.
A few days ago, I asked who you believe is the best Texas music artist of all time. We had great response to this question, and got into some very spirited and intelligent conversation on the radio and online. Thanks to everyone who shared their opinions and the reasoning behind them.
You’ve heard the phrase, “you couldn’t pay me to go see that movie”, right? This weekend, I saw previews for two such movies. These are two movies that are expected to do very well at the box office (mainly based on the cast, I guess), so I’m not here to make any prediction on the flop of two movies that nobody went to see.
A few days ago, we talked about Timothy Poe, the country singer who had the judges and audience in tears on the NBC television show “America’s Got Talent”. After discussing it on the radio, Facebook, and on our website, we decided to make an official poll, asking “Should Timothy Poe be kicked off America’s Got Talent?”. Abilene voted, and the majority agrees that Poe needs to go.
