Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Curtis Mayfield & Major Lance express the inexpressible : Um, um, um, um, um, um!

Thom Hickey shows us how sometimes all you can say is, Um, um, um, um, um, um …

The Immortal Jukebox

‘Now that I’m a man I think I understand sometimes everyone must sing this song

Um, um,um, um, um, um,

Um, um, um, um, um, um,

Um, um, um, um, um, um,

Um, um, um, um, um, um’

The songwriting genius of Curtis Mayfield and the seductive tones of Major Lance combine to create a Chicago Soul masterpiece and an anthem for us all in these, ‘interesting times’.

It may not surprise long term readers of The Jukebox to learn that I am a compulsive journal keeper.

I read a lot of newspapers and subscribe to a wide selection of specialist magazines which I scrupulously annotate before I make journal entries trying to pin down my version of posterity.

    Durn it, Kevin Brennan! I started reading the sample of Occasional Soulmates and now you’ve got me hooked! I really hate reading electronically though which means I have to order a paperback and wait for it to get here. By that time I’ll have forgotten most of what I’ve read and will have to start over. Sigh. But I can’t help it, I love your writing style. It’s always such a rush to discover a new author! (And just a little bit I’m relishing the whole having-to-start-over travesty.)

      Holy cow, Deb Rhodes! You just made my whole day!

      Glad you like the sample, and I hope you like the book enough when you’re done that you go on to another. 😉 And tell your friends too!

      Sorry you have to wait for the paperback …

        Yes (sniffle) the waiting can’t be helped. I want to hold your book in my hand and turn the pages reverently (or carelessly, depending on my mood) and leave it open facedown on my bed when I jump up for more coffee, then come back into my room and gasp with horror when I see what I’ve done. Somehow, it’s just not the same with a computer.

        I will spread the word about your writings, have no fear. Maybe I’ll even leave an Amazon review. You never know!
