[Spotlight Post] Sir Terry Pratchett – Leaving Early to Avoid the Rush

Posted by reudaly on March 12, 2015 in Spotlight |

I’m tired of memorial posts. I really am. The losses are piling up even in the midst of seasons turning to Spring and new life. Two weeks ago we bid farewell to Leonard Nimoy with Harve Bennett following close on his heels. Very early this week, the DFW area lost Terry Dorsey, a long-time radio […]

[Spotlight Post] Welcome 2015

Posted by reudaly on January 2, 2015 in Spotlight, Writing |

If you believe in superstitions (or just traditions) – what you do on New Year’s Day is what you’ll be doing all year – for us that’s minor home repairs and eating (could be a lot worse). We also had greens, black eyed peas, and corn-based carbs (in fritters – not bread), so those traditional […]

[Spotlight Post] Old Friends Rediscovered and Retiring Icons

Posted by reudaly on December 19, 2014 in Life, Spotlight |

This is NOT a memorial post – dadgumit. It’s almost Christmas and I want happier topics. I got them in the last couple of days. I wish Terry Dorsey all the best in his retirement. Dorsey worked for KPLX when my dad started working in radio in Dallas/Fort Worth. Dad came to DFW to work […]

[Spotlight Post] The Rogues – Hellbound Sleigh

Posted by reudaly on December 12, 2014 in Review, Spotlight |

This was originally posted on Celtic Music Magazine. When The Rogues’ Hellbound Sleigh came up for review I jumped at it – even though I’m generally a stickler for not listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving. This, I thought would be a fun addition my Christmas music collection. I figured it would be weirdly irreverent […]

[Spotlight Post] Farewell to an Old Radio Guy – Mike Doyle

Posted by reudaly on December 5, 2014 in Spotlight |

I’ve never intended this part of the website to be solely about memorials, but sometimes they come in groups. I found out this week someone else I knew passed away. He was a co-worker of my dad’s – and for a time, a co-worker of mine. His name was Mike Doyle. He was an old-school […]

[Spotlight Post] Judy Crider – In Memoriam

Posted by reudaly on November 28, 2014 in Life, Spotlight |

I’m going to round out this Thanksgiving Week with a sad note. As lovely as Thanksgiving was – we celebrated with family at our house (as has been the case since Jimmy and I were married) – it did end with some bad news – the passing of a friend. I’d like to tell you […]

[Spotlight Post] Glen A. Larson – In Memoriam

Posted by reudaly on November 21, 2014 in Spotlight |

Not long after I wrote the last Spotlight(ish) post, I found out about a passing. I am a product of 1970’s and 1980s television. Though I read a lot, I learned a lot of my story telling skills and pacing from television – and Action Television at that. Gene Roddenberry taught me a lot through […]

[Spotlight Post] Early…Changes and Ducks

Posted by reudaly on October 23, 2014 in Conventions, Life, Spotlight |

This isnt’ going to be a “traditional” Spotlight post – but hey, it’s also Thursday. I will be on the road a bit tomorrow heading to Tyler Rose City Comic Con to sell some books and hang with Timothy Zahn, Jeremy Clark, and a bunch of other awesome folks. If that’s your neck of the […]

[Spotlight Post] Remembering Eugie Foster and Lonnie Mitchell

Posted by reudaly on October 3, 2014 in Life, Spotlight |

What ended up being a fantastic FenCon ended with… not as much greatness. During tear down and the Dead Dog, I started catching up news feeds, then as Rand Bellavia of Ookla theMok put it… “I see sadness.” The sadness has continued into this week. I’m really tired of doing Memorial Spotlight posts. I’d started […]

[Spotlight Post] Aodan Coyne’s “If We Only Knew” Crosspost

Posted by reudaly on August 29, 2014 in Review, Spotlight |

This is a crosspost from Celtic Music Magazine. This one is an lovely Irishman, Aodan Coyne. Coyne plays with Socks in the Frying Pan but is debuting his first solo album. Aodan Coyne is about to release his first solo album called If We Only Knew which feels like a very traditional, acoustic Irish music […]
