Elton John, ‘Home Again’ – Song Review

The familiar-sounding piano that opens 'Home Again,' Elton John's first new solo music since 2006's 'The Captain & the Kid' album, instantly recalls the singer's hit material from the '70s, when he was the biggest pop star on the planet. But it's warmer and more worn-in. It's Elton John, all right. But it's Elton John 40 years later, returning to a comfort zone with history behind him.

Four Good Weather Apps, Pick the One That Fits You Best


With warmer weather arriving in the Northland, we all start thinking about outdoor activities. Sprucing up the yard a bit, fishing, golfing, and so forth. Even though it has been warmer, this is the Northland, and weather can change on a dime, so you need a good weather app for your phone.

I've selected four weather apps for you, thanks to my friends at Cnet. All available at the app store. The cool thing is there is something here for everybody. I own two of the four myself. Here they are.

Rayman’s Book of the Month, “I, Rhoda” [REVIEW]

Over the weekend, I read "I, Rhoda" the life story of Valerie Harper. I didn't really no what to expect when I got the book, but being a huge fan of the days when Valerie Harper was on "The Mary Tyler Moore" show and her spin off "Rhoda", I had to give it a go.

“Searching For Sugar Man,” Rayman’s Movie Of The Month (VIDEO)

Over my lifetime as I traveled through America, I've seen hundreds of talented musicians who never got the break they were searching for. You can see them on most any street corner in any major city, even right here in the Northland. Therefor, it's heartwarming to see a movie about a man who was a virtual unknown here in the U.S.,become as Rolling Stone magazine put it, a "certified superstar." That movie is "Searching For Sugar Man."

Get A Fantastic Weather App and It’s Free

O.K., I'll admit I'm addicted to a few things, like clocks (I always need to know exactly what time it is), and the exact temperature is a must for me as well. The forecast too (because so many of them are dead wrong.) I have several weather apps on my iPhone, however they are not precise enough for me. I probably use 4 weather apps daily, that are decent. Today I found a new weather app, and it's really great, plus it's free. It works on your computer, phone (android or apple.) and If you have an iPad, it's fantastic.

Don Felder, ‘Wash Away’ (Feat. Tommy Shaw of Styx) – Song Review

Former Eagles guitarist Don Felder recently released a solo album titled 'Road to Forever,' and on Monday (March 18) he released the second single from the project, a mid-tempo electric-acoustic hybrid titled 'Wash Away.' And while it might not be the second coming of 'Hotel California,' the track is a deserving effort with many strong elements, and more than worthy of a listen for any fan of his prior work.

Rayman’s Search For a New Powerful Handheld Spotlight

I sort of hunker down during the Winter, but when Spring arrives, I get outdoors as much as possible. Because of my hours here at the radio station, I'm pretty limited as to when I can ride my ATV, or go fishing. A few years ago, I started riding and fishing at night, after work.
