2011 saw U.S. album sales post an increase for the first time since 2004 according to the Associated Press. Maybe this is an indicator of how the market will react to CD's that contain more than one good song.

U.S. album sales rose more than 3 percent last year for the first gain since 2004 -- a sign that rising digital sales are finally stemming the decade-long decline of compact discs.

The uptick to 458 million album sales was helped by the hugely popular... Read More

The 2012 Mummers Parade in Philadelphia was another huge success in the long tradition of the New Years Day tradition. The weather was perfect, and aside from a little brawl between some mummers and viewers caught on video, the day could not have been better.

Especially for the Woodland String Band. The band snagged first place for the first time in its 87-year history. Woodland was last to pass the judges but made a lasting impression.

Late in the parade a... Read More

Philadelphia Councilwoman Marian Tasco retires, collects a huge DROP payment, and then goes back to work. The Daily News reported she will collect more than $478,000 at retirement this week, then return to office within days, and keep all the money. Tasco’s participation in the controversial DROP program probably cost her the race for council president. Others in the program will also retire briefly, collect and return to work.

Arlen Specter made an appearance this week in Philadelphia - at Helium Comedy Club. No joke. Specter did a few minutes of stand-up at the club's open mic night.


Philly.com reported on Specter's appearance, "I've been in comedy now for 30 years," the former senator explained.

Taking a try at stand-up was a natural step after spending so many years in the "sit-down comedy" of Congress - and, Specter noted, it was considerably less expensive.
