I’ve been coaching at my alma mater, Bishop Kelly High School, for the past four seasons. I’ve learned plenty as a coach by I’m certainly no Bill Tierney.

The four hour clinic was lead by Lynn Kachmarik who has an incredibly impressive resume.

After a brief hiatus from Music Monday I’m back with a treat for you! Desmond Bailey aka Baer C00n The Ewokk’s Goon Hand 2. You may remember us mentioning Des in an October edition of End Caps. For those of you just hearing of Baer Coon for the first time, Bailey is a goalie for the Chicago Outlaws, a semi-pro box team which plays in the CILL. Des’ colorful and eccentric nature makes for a great character in the cage and on the mic.

This Monday I’m bringing you a ton of new music. Let me say (type) that again, I’m bringing you TONS of new music! I know plenty of you have been dumped on with snow but I’m sending a flurry or music your way. Since there’s plenty to listen to, I’ll get straight to it:

Today we remember the life and legacy of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose contributions to the social and political sphere of the United States are innumerable. And over the years, the global musical sphere has become filled with songs inspired by or dedicated to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Below you’ll find songs that pay homage to Dr. King.
Philadelphia hosted the annual #LaxCon this past weekend and I thought it was only right to pay tribute to the city of brotherly love. This week’s Tune In Tuesday features the legendary group, The Roots. To date, The Roots have put out 10 studio albums and have been the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon since ’09.
Typically January is a slower month for new music but I think a trend is developing in music in which artists release surprise albums for fans to download and enjoy. First Beyonce did it, then the Lox and now Del the Funky Homosapien. This week, the goofy Bay Area rapper debuts ‘Iller Than Most,’ a collection of off-kilter rhymes over groovy computer beats.

These aren’t your traditional carols or cliche’ tunes but rather a few songs that are a little less played out. So cozy up with your glass of eggnog and enjoy some Laxmas music!
