Puppet Radio Station Transmitter

In college I was a DJ at their very small and simple radio station WLHU (Lock Haven State College). When I was 13, I got my first Ham Radio license. I still hold the FCC call sign KY6R, but I’m no longer active. Anyway, I’ve had a life long love of radio, even though the Internet has made it obsolete. This song started out…

On The Road to the Summer Solstice

I always enjoy the Summer and Winter Solstices and the Vernal and Autumnal Equinoxes. Does this make me a pagan or druid? I do have Celtic and Germanic DNA. I’m equal parts Anglo and Saxon. I’m not religious, so I’m a WAS not a WASP. Hmmmm.

Mountain Pass[ed]

The Telegram came in at 3:40 yesterday afternoon. I was Writing and Playing this song – hence how upbeat this is.

Graveyard Stew

I grew up in a town of 7000 population, near where the Appalachian Trail goes through. That town only grew by 1000 people 50 years later. Its 60 miles northwest of New York City. That fact is the only reason I’m not a hill billy or full frontal bumpkin. The grave in the picture is on the side of a small hill in the…
