Just a Song Before I Go

As you may have noticed, I don't really update this blog any more; when I discovered Facebook 5 or 6 years ago I realized it was a much better venue for my writing for a couple of reasons. First, it's a much faster and more efficient way to express ideas (and I am seeing that Twitter may be even faster and more efficient). Second--and more important to me--I have a lot of interests, including not just music but gardening and travel and political rants, and on and on, and I felt compelled to maintain a separate blog for each in order to do them justice, when in fact it is the interconnections between them that fascinate me the most. And third, I get a lot more feedback and a lot less spam there. (In writing this post I see that Blogger has gotten even easier to use in the many years since I last worked with it--no more tedious HTML for links!--so it's possible I will return here from time to time, but don't hold your breath. See Reason Two again.)

I still write a lot about music--in fact, for many years now (off and on) I have posted on an almost daily basis about an "Album [or Artist, or Art] of the Night" (aka simply "AotN") on Facebook. Here's a random sample or two. I also write on a regular basis about shows coming up in Western New York and review concerts and other events for Buffalo Spree, among other publications. If you like what I've written here, check me out there, too. 

In time my website,, will be your one-stop shop for (as the name implies) everything I do: writing, performing, making peculiar, often music-related, video pieces, and so on.

You're also encouraged to befriend me on Facebook (as RonEhmke; let me know you found me via this blog) or follow me on Twitter (@RonEhmke). I absolutely love hearing from fellow music fans from around the world, so don't hesitate to say hello.

PS. The "Heavy Rotation" links on the right side of the page refresh every day, so the blog does stay current in its way. Check back and see what I mean!
