On July 1, The Kirkham Report takes the next step into our future, with a completely rebooted site. I mean, well, NO, it’s probably NOT going to look much different – I like the theme I’m using on it now, but I’ll be adding a TON of new things to the pages as we go along. What WILL be changing the most is the content – In addition to my #1 focus, my music charts and preferences, I’m going to be introducing over a dozen new featured columns, each with a particular focus.

“CHART”-ING A COURSE FOR THE FUTURE II

Man I love bad puns, don’t I? Heh heh… Over the past week, since I made the decision to incorporated our “Planet BiblioMusica” blog here on TKR, I’ve been thinking about some stuff, and some ideas for some future columns and projects I wanted to do, and how I can make TKR a “must-see” site for music fans like myself. Stuff I would want to look at if I were a fan of music. So in addition to the original bad-pun-titled column from about 18 months ago, this is what I am thinking about… Reintroducing the “Song Of The Day”

Brazilian artist Joao Gilberto, who in the 1950s pioneered the new latin sound called bossa nova, has died at his home in Rio de Janeiro, he was 88 years old.

According to some, the jazz guitarist

IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING! The TKR Classic Charts are coming online!

You know, it has taken me almost a decade to get to this point, and I apologize for that. It’s only because I wanted to present things in the best possible way, and I’ve been trying to come up with a cool and fancy way to bring my old classic charts online. First, I thought it would be cool to reenter them on new grids with cool new logos and such…but that proved to be impossibly time consuming, especially with all I have going throughout the PNRNetworks family. Then, I thought, i’ll scan the charts in and use OCR to
