Celebrating Music Monday | Fleetwood Mac

I have never been a big fan of Fleetwood Mac. Sure, as a teenager, I owned their 1977 Rumours album—but who didn’t!

Music Monday | Loudon Wainwright III

The most endearing memories of my childhood revolve around music, and my uncle (my mom’s youngest brother) stands out prominently in my mind for his penchant for singing goofy songs. With great theatrics, he would sing to my cousin and me whenever a silly song struck his fancy, relishing in the absurdity of the lyrics.…
