Lannie Flowers “Christmas Without You”

[youtube]053mfiueVsA[/youtube]

 

It’s about that time of year where I start to compile my “Best of 2013” list and in the next few days showcase some great Christmas music from a few of my favorite artists this year. It goes without saying that Lannie Flowers is an outstanding musician and I’ve seen him very recently, so he gets my first nod to the holiday videos.

Note: In addition to doing the top 25 power pop albums of the year, I will be hosting a full 30 minute radio show on Sunday December 29 @ 7:30pm on 11L New York Radio International courtesy of John Lightning and Dave “The Boogieman.” Mark your Calendars!

Happy Record Store Day!

Krayolas

Today is Record Store Day.
It’s a day that retailers hope will draw both loyal and new customers to celebrate the independent record store and all that it has to offer. Kool Kat Musik is not a traditional “brick and mortar” retailer but they do share the same passion and enthusiasm for music and in support of the “indie” guys they will be having a “Virtual Record Store Long Weekend” from Friday, April 19 through Sunday, April 21! 

10% OFF all NEW CDs listed in the Power Pop/Alt Country Online Store
