Mistress of the Mix: A Memorable 4th, & the Tunes to Go with It

I’ve had some pretty memorable 4th of July moments. There was the meaningful Bicentennial Celebration of 1976. I was 9, and people were handing out two dollar bills all over the place. Then there was the coolest 4th of July … the time I watched the Redding fireworks in typical 110-degree heat from a lounge [...]

If It’s Friday, This Must Be The Equinox

When I first sat down to write about the Fall equinox a few weeks ago, it was 85 degrees in Redding, and I was actually considering the idea of wearing a long sleeved shirt to work. Now, as the deadline to get this to the editor looms over my head like a thundercloud, the thermometer [...]

Mistress of the Mix: Waiting for Labor Day

There’s nothing more my lover wants in life than for me to have his baby. He has a son; I have a daughter. They’ve developed into wonderful teenagers, but he yearns for us to have one that’s half him, half me. A baby we can raise together. I have to admit that there are moments [...]

Mistress of the Mix: My Favorite Song of Every Other Week

A few weeks ago I picked my teenage daughter up from summer camp, and on the long drive home, I asked her if she wanted to hear all the new favorite songs I’d discovered while she was gone. It was one of the greatest road trips ever because we listened to songs and sang and [...]

Mistress Of The Mix: Let’s Give Cancer the Finger

My little sister was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year. It’s been a tough couple of months for her, beginning with the mammogram, then the bad news, a double mastectomy, issues with poor circulation due to a low heart rate that brought on another surgery, and now chemotherapy. Last week she got the cutest [...]

Mistress Of The Mix: Take ‘Em To The Bridge

Recently, a visiting friend took two entire pages of notes while we goofed off in the kitchen over martinis and a blaring iPod. Every couple of songs she’d exclaim, “I love this! Who sings it?!” Then she’d grab her pen, furiously writing. She said, “You know so much about cool, obscure music. You really should [...]
