Month: April 2022


Many years ago, when I was recording almost everyday, one of my favorite tunes was a ballad I had written when I was in between girlfriends. Yes, I was a lonely guy. However, my life was filled with interesting and talented singers/musicians. One of them was Stephen Wolfe Smith, who passed way too early. He was a great singer and overall nice guy! 

I have a page here on the site dedicated to the tunes he performed. No Promises

During the early lockdown, I spent some time putting together music videos of the tunes he performed for me.  Earlier today, I had repaired my DAT machine and started listening to some of my archived tunes and SURPRISE SURPRISE! I had completely forgotten that Stephen had recorded vocals on this tune. 

Currently, there are three lyric music videos with him singing. Yup, you guessed it. Soon there will be four. It will take some time as I am quite busy being well, uh, busy. As I get closer to finishing, I’ll post the song title etc.

Until then it will be a mystery.


No Connection…EEK!

So, about a week or two ago, I was hiking with my faithful companion, the Chupacabra, when I realized that a telephone pole on my hiking path was NOT CONNECTED TO…anything! Scary, spooky and you guessed it, very Night Gallery-ish.

I remember this episode where the phone keeps ringing and when answered, a voice from beyond the grave would speak. The phone lines had been damaged in a storm and one of the telephone wires had landed on a  grave.

A great commercial for phone service! I looked to see if there were anymore poles in the vicinity. Nope. Just this one all by itself. Why was there a telephone pole connected to nothing in the middle of my hike?

The answer was not forthcoming. Was it even worth the time to contemplate? Nah. My Chupacabra thought is was strange too! Since there were no headstones I could see or unearth, I moved on. Still, brought up a memory from long ago…
