Some exciting things happening as we head towards 2019…

As most of our readers and podcast listeners know, 2018 has been a really tough year on Kim and myself. We’ve both suffered through a number of illnesses, I had to deal with the loss of my mom in May, which began a series of concerning health issues for me as well. And work has been a bear, causing all kinds of disruptions throughout the year. It has been detrimental to the point that we have opted not to have a Poppies and Rosies awards show on New Years’ Eve, simply because neither one of us feel we have seen

BACK FROM OBLIVION…WELL ALMOST ANYWAY

Hi gang!  Sorry it’s been forever since I was able to update stuff here – things have been crazy around here since my last post – both my wife and I got sick – AGAIN – and work has been a hassle, but we’re almost there. All the current TKR charts will be caught up by next weekend, when the Hot 20 will return with new installments. I hope to have some of the rest of the stuff back in circulation soon as well, but research is a bit longer these days due to the hassles YouTube has with stuff,

What’s that? It’s the sound of One Hit Wonder day

Today, dear friends, is National One Hit Wonder Day, a fact that I would have completely missed had it not been for our local news bringing it up.  For those who don’t know, a One Hit Wonder is a musical artist who manages to hit the top 40 once and only once. Of course this varies by country, but the US uses BIllboard as the starting point. A TRUE One Hit Wonder is someone who hits BIllboard’s Hot 100 only once, although of late that has been amended to strictly top 40 by many people. Here’s Spotify’s channel devoted to

TWO NEW TKR VIDEO SERIES DEBUTING SOON

I’ve been working on some new ideas for video series, and two more shows will join TKR’s YouTube Channel sometime in the next week. The first is sort of a spinoff of the Saturday TKR Hot20, I guess. I was thinking the other day and I said to myself, “Self, you know we could do this whole Hot20 thing for the chart archive too.” And I was like, “Wow! Self, that’s a great idea! I’m so glad we thought of that!” Ok, ok, I know…i’ll stop that absurd self talk…heh heh heh. But I won’t stop the debut of The

PLAYTION UPDATE: MASSIVE UPDATES TO SUNSHINE 70S, NEW PLAYTIONS COMING THIS WEEKEND

Hi everyone!  Been working on some MASSIVE updates to our “decades” Spotify Playtions this week and will be continuing more over the next two weeks.

Now, the time has come to give each of the channels a MASSIVE upgrade, which started this week with the “Sunshine 70s” channel playtion, where I’ve added OVER 500 new tunes to the list in the past 48 hours!  You can now listen to the channel for over TWO DAYS without

Debuting Soon: TKR “Insider Trak” newsletter

I’ve spent the past week musing on how I can make TKR bigger and better for music and radio fans out there, and I’ve come up with a few new cool ideas I hope everyone will like and want to be a part of. In addition to a few new, restructured, and revamped sections of the site which will debut over the course of the next couple of weeks, greatly expanding my theater of interests and looking to share them with other music and chart fans, I wanted to come up with something special that these music fans and chart followers

The Latest Goings On at TKR

Hi all! I sure hope you all have enjoyed my first video series, the TKR Weekly Hot20, which goes up every Saturday evening between 6 and 8 PM ET. It’s been GREAT to get back into the music charting game – I’m enjoying myself a lot, making my personal charts again, having fun posting my picks for songs, up and coming hits and more. If you’re new to some of the songs (and I’m sure there are quite a few songs that make my chart that will be new to a lot of people), I hope you’re checking the artists
