Well that was a weird week. Once you think you’ve seen it all, our President gets impeached a second time. I was really hoping it would be an unanimous vote, but obviously I live in la la land. 

Anywho (I hate that colloquialism), you’re here for the music, not the commentary. Right? Hmmmm. Maybe you want more commentary. Do you want more commentary? I am a civics teacher, you know?

I offer you my latest, greatest creation: two hours of whatever the hell lit a fire under my butt as the current song was playing. There are some real treats, and a few surprises. And the banter isn’t too shabby. I think it flows right on by. You tell me what you think. No one ever leaves comments, except those Q-Anon COVIDiots. 

Lest I forget:

RUN FOR THE LILLIES 2021

The rules are simple:

  • You choose ten celebrities (from any industry) you believe will meet their demise by December 31, 2021.
  • The only rule: you may NOT contribute to their passing.
  • Email the list by January 31st (no one on your list may have passed before you get me your list) to mrjohnhell@gmail.com
    • I know this is morbid; my name is HELL
  • There will be a prize for the most names “collected”, announced January 2022

Enjoy.

Happy New Year, to you all! How did you celebrate the completion of one of the top 10 worst years in the history of our nation? I sat at home and watched the Melvins NYE special. Thanks fellas, that was a hoot!

Tonight was a night of firsts. I have never played Hank III before. Nor have I played Jake Blount (thanks Derlyn!!!), nor has Larry Boothroyd been played on my show as a session leader, though I have played plenty of Victim’s Family in the past. And though Buddy Rich has graced these “airwaves”, this record with Alla Rakha has never been on, though I look forward to sharing more from all of these artists in the future.

As for what 2021 has in store, it’s all about this Georgia special election that’s happening on Tuesday. I predict the two Democrats will win by slim margins. I also don’t think the GOP candidates will do as well as Trump did. If the two Dems do win, I have to wonder how much sway Trump will have with the House and Senate GOP members with the electoral certification on Wednesday? By the time you are reading this, it’ll probably be long over. How close were my predictions?
