Country music legend Dolly Parton is set to release a new album Novemeber 17th, and let me tell you I'm hyped! After her induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, she has decided to go outside her typical format and put out some rock oriented music. She's collaborated on songs with some huge names like Elton John, Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, and many more. The album will consist of 21 cover renditions and 9 brand new original pieces for a healthy total of 30 songs. It's kind of a big deal.
Information has been trickling out about the project since the announcement of the album, and just today I came across a newly released music video for one of the tracks, "What's Up?" The song's a smash hit from the early 90's sensation 4 Non Blondes, and the original singer/ songwriter Linda Perry accompanies Dolly in this remake. Did you know Lainey Wilson also covered this song in her latest and greatest album, Bell Bottom Country? Anyways, I have high expectations for Dolly Parton's Rockstar album coming out in less than two months, and here's a link to the video of her version of "What's Up" for you to check out!
If you are a frequent listener to WQMX between 7 and midnight weekdays...first, thank you very much! As you know, during the 9 o'clock hour we have the New At 9. It's a full hour of some of the newest music out of Nashville. We also have the New Song Spotlight and then play Keep it or Kick it to get your votes on how you as listeners like the song.
Starting Monday, we are making a little change. As we head into Fall and Winter things will begin to slow down a bit. So we will only play Keep it or Kick it when I have a brand new song. The other evenings, the spotlight song will have some other significance. Maybe it's historic to the day, or possibly it's one we've had you vote on before, but don't feel we need a second opinion, etc.
As always thank you for voting during this segment. It really helps us here at WQMX, and look forward to it returning in full strength in the Spring!
Fall officially begins tomorrow morning at 2:50am, then we get the prettist scenery! Right now, you are starting to see leaves change, not to much, but just wait for the next few weeks! I found this website, explorefall.com that updates their maps daily. So if you are sticking around NE Ohio or wanting to take a road trip, you'll know where to find all the fall colors!
Disappointed is an understatement on this one. The car market in general is crazy as ever, and EVs are huge these days. VW is well aware of this, and with successes like that of the new Ford Bronco, it's prime time to bring back an old classic like the bus.
According to Volkswagen, the "ID.Buzz" will arrive at U.S. dealerships sometime in 2024, and it's a very cool ride by all acounts. I'd drive one in a heartbeat. That's not the problem. The essence of the van has been destroyed if you ask me. That's because of the sticker price, 40k on the low end. The original van represented freedom, basic transportation, and affordability; and this is quite the stretch from those origins. As it is with most any brand new car these days (Jeep Grand Wagoneers are in the 100k range!?!) with dealership markup and preoder options, this will inevitably become a status symbol reserved for those with wealth beyond the typical American. It's gotten to the point where I'm not sure I will ever be in a position to buy anything but a used vehicle, and with what's new these days I don't think I mind!
Hurry on over to WQMX.com to sign up for the 5 Kay on October 7th. You only have until noon on Friday (tomorrow) to get signed up and still receive a commemorative race t-shirt. You are moe than welcome to sign up all the way to race day itself, but you must be signed up by noon on Friday the 22nd to get the t-shirt for this year.
As always we are raising money that is to benefit our awesome Bosom Buddies charity to help fight Breast Cancer. We hope to see you at Maize Valley Winery & Craft Brewery on Route 619 on Saturday October 7th at 9am sharp!
Kane Brown released his next single to radio today, as he also just announced his upcoming tour!
Kane says, "'I Can Feel It' came after we were trying to find someone to perform with me at Stage Coach. Phil Collins was one of the people we wanted, and after we were in Canada, we wrote this song, and I immediately fell in love with it with the drum feel. It's so familiar to a lot of people. I'm really excited to play it live. I immediately saw the image of it after we wrote it and I can't wait for everybody to hear it and get to jam along to it."
I love all sorts of pets from parakeets to goldfish and everything in between, but we all know a dog is man's best friend. I've never met a dog I haven't liked, just ones that don't like me, unprovoked. (Just let me love you!) This blog is part of a series in which I rank all sorts of stuff, and the purpose of it is to give you some insight into who I am and what I'm about. It's also a lot of fun to get some input on my lists by those who rank things differently, so let's get into it and determine if we see eye-to-eye on favorite breeds of pups!

Hi everyone! My name is Buttercup and I thought I'd take over writing my dad's blog at work today...he said it would be cool with him and you wouldn't mind. I know he has told you a little about me before, but I'll recap. I'm about 5 years old, and showed up at my current home about 4 years ago. I was too young at the time, I don't remember where I came from before that...or is it I just don't want to tell my daddy? ;) hahaha.
Anyway, I have been so lucky to live where I do. I get fed handsomely (even though I yell at my dad that I'm starving and wasting away). I even get treats! My favorite toys are a shoestring, toy mice, and I love to kick around a ball here and there. I also enjoy going after my dad's shoestrings and his phone charger (which he yells at me to stop it..but I don't).
I enjoy having deep conversations with my dad. I think I have great ideas for world hunger, peace, and when to bring out Pumpkin Spice every Fall. Along with having these conversations and playing with my toys, my favorite pasttime is curling up in my dad's lap and falling asleep while we watch TV.
Thank you for listening to my daddy's station, as it provides him the ability to fill my tummy everyday with my favorite salmon-flavored food!!
'Awww, Shucks'!!! There will be silent auctions and raffles and more... You'll be clam-oring for more while we are 'shelling-it out for soldiers'...

Up until now, I have only seen the teaser video online, but a friend shared the whole video for the Monday Night Football performance and it gives me chills. The new Monday Night Football anthem played in it's entirety before the Cleveland Browns took on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Sadly, the game was a loss for us, but this performance from Chris Stapleton, Snoop Dogg and Cindy Blackman Santana was a win!
