Two nights ago I finally told my iPhone, “partner, partner let me upgrade u” and I hooked it up to iTunes.  What in the heck was I waiting for???  There are a ton of free applications that have been waiting out there for me… WordPress, NY Times, AOL Radio, and my new obsession Pandora.  We listen to it a bit at work, but it always annoys me that its constantly another “window” open on my screen… in a sea of Excel windows.  But now that I can jam to it on my iPhone… this is brilliant.

The first radio station I created was of course based off of Bruce.  Then Elvis.  And then Otis Redding.  Otis is what I’m jamming to this morning.  I love some good soul in the mornings.  Makes me feel right and spiritually connected to the world.  Otis, Sam Cooke, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Al Green, Solomon Burke, Ray Charles… oh, it’s good.
