Why were we "off the air" for eight hours Thursday?

We're back up and running and I wish I could tell you what happened, but I don't know. However, I do know we'll be getting a bill from my programmer for putting things right.

If anyone feels inclined to chip in and help with this extraordinary expense (about two weeks net revenue up in smoke), we'd appreciate it. Every little bit helps a lot.

Jordan's Jump


First recorded by Louis Jordan in 1945, his jump blues classic “Caldonia” would go on to have a profound influence on music. When Erskine Hawkins covered it the same year, Billboard would call it “rock and roll.” Never before had the phrase “rock and roll” been put to print.

Jordan's recording of this song reached no. 5 on the predecessor to the Billboard rhythm and blues charts.
