Review for Mark Kelly Hall:

Mark Kelly Hall addresses topics such as love, faith and the 70's, with an approach that is often humorous but always serious.
 He is originally from Chattanooga and now based in Nashville (yes, he’s been on the TV show, but only for a couple of seconds in the background).  His songs reflect the spiritual heritage of the Bible-belt South, combined with a lifelong fascination with American pop culture, and seasoned by his experiences in places far away from his native Tennessee. He performs an eclectic blend of acoustic folk/pop originals and favorites, flavored with congeniality, personal insight, and a touch of country blues.

Roy Exum: ‘Our’ American Minute

William J. Federer is one of the leading historians in the United States and every morning I am among thousands of people who get an entertaining email from him called the “American Minute.” I adore it because Bill takes a significant event in American history that happened long ago – but he remembers on the very anniversary of when it occurred. A great example is that last Thursday ... (click for more)
