Shasta Soda!

Shasta Commercial From 1983.

How many people thought that Shasta soda died in the 1980s? Well I sure did. It turns out that Shasta is alive and well. I remember my pops buying Shasta every week at the local Bag N Save grocery store. When the 90s came into play, he stopped purchasing it and I totally forgot about it. It wasn't until two weeks ago that I was shopping at Albertsons and I see Shasta soda in various flavors. I purchased the creme soda and grapefruit flavor. I was expecting a cheap tasting soda. I was totally wrong. Both flavors tasted excellent in my opinion. I purchased the diet versions and they are sweetened with Splenda. Do not worry about experiencing a bad diet aftertaste. Shasta sodas are available in 12 pack and 2 liter bottles. If you want to try something new, try some Shasta soda. Peace!

Southwest Radio Is Horrible!

AM/FM radio in SW Texas and NM is not very entertaining. I am not saying that XM/Sirius radio has the best programming in the world, but it is better than local radio. One station that I truly miss is KXCR 89.5. It is now known as K-Love. It was one radio station that I listened to frequently. Jazz and classical music was what you heard from Monday to Friday. On Friday nights and on the weekends you heard a variety of music. I remember on Friday nights, you could hear R&B music from the 50s, 60s, 80s, and 90s. On the weekends you could hear punk, ska, and hip hop. It was a great station. One thing that I loved was that they were always looking for volunteer disc jockeys. I remember my friends would always go down to Myrtle street and apply for whatever position was open. It was a station that was created for the public. In 2002, KXCR changed formats. Once that happened I turned the dial to KSNM 570 AM in Las Cruces. KSNM changed their format last September to an all talk format. If someone has a good idea for creating a new radio station in El Paso or in Las Cruces, let me know ASAP.


Lou Romano Has Been Located!

Lou has been found! According to my Father, he is a fill in radio host for KROD 600AM. I hardly listen to sports radio on the AM or XM satellite radio dial. As far as radio is concerned I only listen to what is on my media player or on internet radio. El Paso radio is very bland with the exception of the KLAQ morning show.


Michael Jackson:1958-2009

I love this album cover!

Peace and Love to Mike Jackson and all of the fans that supported him over the years! Thriller and Bad are my favorite Mike Jackson albums. They really are! Smooth Criminal and Beat It are my favorite songs. I never knew what the hell Mike was talking about in Smooth Criminal. Anyways, support Mike and buy his albums.
