AOL Pulling plug on “Winamp” & “SHOUTcast” on Dec 20, 2013

A few days ago, AOL released the news that it was in the process of shutting down Winamp, the very popular media playing software for Windows that dominated most of the 90’s. Originally developed by Nullsoft, Winamp became a part of AOL through an 80 million dollar acquisition ShoutRadioin 1999.

Along with Winamp, AOL also got the rights to streaming media service SHOUTcast,   another Nullsoft product. Recently it came to the light that AOL is negotiating with Microsoft in order to sell off Winamp and SHOUTcast. It has also been revealed that AOL is likely to announce the end of SHOUTcast by next week.


Winamp has been around since 1997,  and though it has amassed a large and faithful following in the years since, the good times are coming to an end. The software will cease to be available come December 20th.  Anyone who visits the download page is now greeted by a message warning that they better grab the goods while they're still available, because they won't be a month from now.

Fats Domino is still Alive and Kickin' in New Orleans

Alive and Kickin' is the name of Domino's most recent CD. He's donating the proceeds from sales of the album to the Tipitina's Foundation, which is dedicated to preserving and restoring the musical culture of New Orleans.

In the title track, which was written before Katrina but sounds appropriate now, Domino sings:

All over the country, people wanna know
What ever happened to Fats Domino?
And I'm alive and kickin'
I'm alive and kickin'
I'm alive and kickin'
And I'm where I wanna be.

Handpicked Live features Fats Domino and his classic New Orleans twist.

He is one of New Orleans's greatest treasures, but Rhythm and Blues legend Fats Domino was nearly lost when Hurricane Katrina made landfall.

75th anniversary of Orson Welles' 'War of the Worlds' broadcast. tonight 11:00pm CDT

'War of the Worlds' broadcast, 1938 tonight @ 11:00 PM

Orson Welles directed, produced and narrated the program with his Mercury Theater group during their 'Mercury Theatre on the Air' show. The broadcast of 'War of the Worlds' coincided with the broadcast of the more popular radio show 'The Chase and Sanborn Hour' on NBC. Listeners of 'The Chase and Sanborn Hour' tuned into 'The War of the Worlds' during a commercial break, and, because 'War of the Worlds' was presented like an actual radio broadcast, took it as a live reporting of real events.

Buddy Guy.. Rhythm & Blues ablum for sale.

Rhythm & Blues album for sale by Buddy Guy was released Jul 30, 2013 on the RCA label. A great open secret of the last act of Buddy Guy's career is that nearly every album he's made in the new millennium is a concept album of sorts, ranging from the gnarled modern Delta blues of Sweet Tea and the acoustic Blues Singer to the pseudo-autobiography of 2010's Living Proof. Rhythm & Blues trumps them all in size and concept:
