Joe McKay to Fill in For JoeyD

Posted by Dex On 3:34 PM 0 comments
Sometimes, even punks like me deserve to have a break sometimes. Iain Black is a little jealous of me but hey, what can I say. I will be heading home for a week to visit some friends and family that I did not get to see during the holiday season.

Filling in for me will be a familiar face. Joe McKay will be filling in for me next week. Don't worry! He will keep you updated with all the same things I do and will also bring his own flavor to the microphone.

And just because I'm gone doesn't mean you have to miss me. I'll be on the Five Hour Lunch Hour with Iain Black to discuss the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl next week, so be ready for that!

Until then, I'll talk to you in a week or so. Take Care.

Web Pick of the Week: K7 United

Posted by Dex On 2:53 PM 0 comments

This Week's Web Pick of the Week is a great tool for you business owners or entrepreneurs who are low on money. The Website is called K7 Unified Messaging.

What does it do? Good Question.

Maybe you had to cancel your business line or chose to cancel it, but you want to still be able to have clients send you voicemail. All you have to do is sign up for an account at K& for free, and they will send you a phone number to give out. Whenever someone you know dials that number, they will automatically be sent to your voicemail line. Once they have left their message, it will be sent to the email account you set up your account with in an mp3 file.

Pretty cool huh?! The best part is that function of K7 is free. If you are still into faxing and don't have a machine, K& also has those functions available to you. Try it out for free on the website and let me know what you think!

You will be able to hear a part of the interview on the air Wednesday afternoon, and the whole interview here on the blog on Wednesday. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Below is a video of Rosen at work.



-Joey D

It's been made clear by the public who the face of Country Music is.

Okay, not quite but it has been one heck of a ride this decade for Oklahoma's own Carrie Underwood. First, it was the mind-blowing performances week in and out on the hit Fox television show American Idol.

Next it was the debut album that blew away the fans of country music.

'Some Hearts,' which had hits, "Jesus Take The Wheel," "Wasted," "Before He Cheats," and "Some Hearts" changed the way country music was looked at for nearly a decade. Billboard has named it the country music album of the decade. Throw in the hits of 'Carnival Ride' and the latest 'Play On' album, and it becomes clear who is at the top of country music.

After a slam dunk December for Taylor Swift, I am predicting that 2010 will be the year of Carrie Underwood.

Earlier this year on the blog, I noted that I wasn't sure if Underwood had made the final step into Country Hall-of-Fame stardom. Now, I am predicting that the time is here. After the release of "Play On" in November, I thought that Underwood would sweep the awards and dominate the world of country music.

Now with the Swift phase ending, as she begins to produce her next album, I think that Carrie Underwood will come out and establish herself as the voice of country music.

That's my prediction in 2010. Only time will tell if it happens, but she really will be a force for quite some time in this genre.
