Blog sites

If you want to view a few blogs sites which won't dump on you (like mine does), here are a few I can mention which actually enhance cyberspace as opposed to merely cluttering it up:

Ken Kotal's fantasic oldies music site. Informative, digs deep into the history surrounding the popular music of the 1950s thru the 1980s.
Guest commentaters include famous recording stars, song-writers, record producers, and former radio disc jockeys. Plenty of familiar names show up on this site.

The oldest oldies station in the U.S. and still going strong on the internet as well as locally in the Long Island NY area.
My only complaint is that there are way too many commercials and announcements in-between songs. Otherwise, probably the most diversified selection of songs from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s one will ever run across without having to put their own programs together themselves. These guys have a far better playlist than you'll ever even find on satellite radio.

A professional landscaper offers is alternative veiwpoints on how cities should be designed if the intentions really are that of making one's hometown user-friendly and optimumly functional, both culturally and financially.
And how the traditional vehicle-dependency syndrome actually impairs the potential cities could otherwise have.

My brother's music site. A lot of hard-to-find recordings featured on this site. Most pre-dating the rock-and-roll era, although the 1950s-and-beyond also get featured alongside recordings dating all the way back to the beginning of the 20th century.

Retired Canadian military veteran expresses his strong political opinions.  Mostly on the subject of Canadian and U.S. politics and corporate shenanigans.
Interesting site if you can stomach this guy's somewhat self-righteous demeanor.

The official website of the legendary Detriot-area iconic radio station from the-days-when-AM-radio-ruled-the-airwaves (music-wise, that is).

Definitely a "must-read" site for many reasons.  The best one being it's one written by someone who's actually mentally stable, and who obviously has her life together and her head on her shoulders where it belongs.

And, finally, one great site that's also truly a "must-read":
