Welcome To Case's Column

Since this will be my first venture into the mysterious world of blogging, let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings "Case's Column". I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, I'll set aside a place here for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Here you are. My very first blog page. Come on in and share in the experience. I'm interested in seeing where this is all going. And thanks in advance for dropping by!

Regards,

Kool 98: The Last Of Texas' Great Oldies Stations

Posted Today at 03:54 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

It was probably the last one standing, since many markets have seen transformations of radio stations that once played '60s music into '70s-'80s formats. Until about three years ago, a station in Lubbock, however, still played the oldies the way they were meant to be played.

KKCL-FM (98.1), previously known as Kool 98, used to have an extensive playlist of tunes, the big hits and the songs you never hear anywhere. In fact, there were songs I'd never, ever heard...

Case's Top 10 Favorite Songs Of All Time

Posted 05-02-2015 at 10:12 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Rather than just retype something over again, I'll do the honors like this. I just wanted to share with you something that's really been long overdue on that cyberspace outpost known as Case's Column.

Here's a post from our Music forums to share with the world.

What's Happening To My America, And When Will This Madness End?

Posted 05-02-2015 at 08:56 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 05-02-2015 at 07:24 PM by case44

I live in a nation which is supposed to be set apart from all the other countries in this world. Exceptional. Free. Where you can dream dreams and live life. Where we are protected from the harm of enemy nations.

Where did it all go?

Because some folks didn't take the time to learn more about the candidates who run for high office, we are paying a dear price for a lack of knowledge. That said, I don't have to tell you about the events of the last six...

The Older I Get, The More It Becomes Urgent

Posted 05-01-2015 at 09:45 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

For the past 8 years, it's become routine in the Case way of life to get a certain medical procedure done to prevent certain types of cancer. I alluded to this very subject a few years ago in a previous blog post, but it bears mentioning again, this time with an update.

This past week, I'd gone to an endoscopy center to get another colonoscopy done. The results were three polyps that got removed during the procedure, each of them pre-cancerous. This differs from...

Baseball Is Fun Again In Astroville, Sports Fans

Posted 04-30-2015 at 10:02 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Another day, another win.

We would not have said this a couple of years ago, but Houston Astros fans can gladly say that happy days, for the moment, are here again. You have Jose Altuve to thank for today's exciting win. It was his very first walk-off win with a single in the bottom of the 10th inning which resulted in a 3-2 win over Seattle at Minute Maid Park. Hard to believe, as good as Altuve had been for a few years, today's finish was, indeed, Jose's...
