Today Is the 21st of September, which means it may be time to listen to the Earth, Wind & Fire song over and over again.

But do you remember why the band singled out the 21st as the date for the song? Many assume it has to do with the seasons changing September 21 is the first day of Autumn.

This tune Is full of funky groove news hooks, octave guitar and bass licks, silky slick keyboards segments, along with a singalong melody, Latino horn sections and a circular chord pattern.

The votes for real royalty overwhelmingly ruled the Emmys night as The Crown reigned supreme along with The Queen’s Gambit. 

The 73rd Emmy Awards largely celebrated the shows and performances that kept us occupied while cooped up indoors for months. The Emmys had limited attendance for the in-person festivities that took place at the Event Deck at L.A. Live, but it was a step toward normalcy.

One-hit wonders achieve short-term popularity for only one piece of work and become known solely for that success so long ago.

For example 25 years ago, back In 1996, I was Station Manager in charge of building a broadcast station in Valverde County Texas. KTRG-TV (Television from the Rio Grande) was right smack dab near the US-Mexico border, with the transmitter in Eagle Pass and offices in Del Rio Texas. During that time, a one-hit-wonder duo known as Los Del Río’s recorded their one and only smash hit record that broke the charts and smashed the hit parade.

It has been succinctly said that an antithesis to sibling rivalry in musical terms, is brotherly, sisterly, or Everly Harmony.

The Andrew Sisters had it. So do The Soto Brothers. Last but not least, The Everly Brothers. Their songs shaped many musical ambitions, including mine.

RIP: Don Everly, one-half of the pioneering Everly Brothers whose harmony hits pleased a generation of rock ‘n’ rollers.

This weekend I received yet another residual check for my participation in the major motion picture, BULWORTH. The story of a truly suicidally and disillusioned liberal politician who puts a contract out on himself and takes the opportunity to be bluntly honest with his voters by affecting the rhythms and speech of hip-hop music and culture.
