The Ghost of Johnny Cash   Recently updated!

UPDATE: While I first heard this a cover by Kerosene Halo, this is actually from Phil Madeira’s album “Motorcycle.” A great album and on sale! Buy it now and support PM, you will not regret it! Even the title song has a great story to it. Phil said he simply liked the pen and ink […]


iTunes: Family Sharing and Apple Music

I have not posted on tech in quite a while, but after finally getting some things sorted with Apple’s iTunes I thought it might be helpful to some and worthwhile to maybe 2 people to share my experience. This is not a review of the services in any comprehensive sense, there are better reviews than […]


Something a little different for your Christmas music listening

I enjoy Christmas music, from the sacred to the silly (give Rudy Red a listen), and I am always looking for something new each season. One of my all time favorite albums is “A Broken Christmas” from 1988. The name comes from the now defunct(?) CCM label “Broken Records” and features songs by some of […]

Pics – 77’s In Concert

I have posted a gallery of pictures I took at the 77’s concert last week on my PhotoBlog. You can also find a video of “Frames Without Photographs” at my YouTube channel and below.  


The 77’s 2014 Summer Tour – Free music, GREAT music 2

Every now and then a group that I really care about goes on tour. It is rare, but it happens. Even more rarely I am able to go and see them. Such is the case next Tuesday!  The 77’s, a group I have followed since the 80s, will be in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and […]


Music to translate by 1

This summer I have got to get more work done on TgRuth. Those who know me know that translation is not my favorite activity and working late into the night is for, well, its for grad students. Last night, however, this song came on (and I quickly put the whole album on) and I just […]


Finding the Lost Dogs 4

The previous post regarding Daniel Amos put me in mind of another great group whose concert I attended, The Lost Dogs. I had posted this piece on my old site in the summer of 2004, but never at Targuman. So, for your enjoyment, a reflection on Christian music and growing up. I was lost on the twisting, […]


Daniel Amos is on Tour

Some of my readers may remember Daniel Amos, one of the earliest Jesus groups from the 70s and one of the few still around. Granted, it has been more than 10 years since they have toured and that long since their last original album, Mr. Buechner’s Dream. Still, they are alive and kicking and making […]


What’s on Abegg’s iPod? 1

On the network in the hotel I came across this and feeling mischievous I thought I would post this this screen shot: Note that his music library is appropriately secured. But it got me wondering, what would be on Abegg’s iPod?  I think he probably gets in the groove with a little Earth, Wind, and […]
