When I was a young kid, growing up in Brantford, Ontario, we had a show on the local radio station ( AM 1380 CKPC Radio ) where a guy named Jim Steel presented “The Hot Hundred” . This is my own, current “Hot Hundred” + one ! There are 101 items my list. Stay tuned to my “Fun Page” for future lists. These lists will be 101 things that I am currently obsessed with.
Please seek out anything on my list that you think you might be interested in. Please support any of these incredible artists or, in the case of the deceased artists, their estates, and, also, please support the issuing companies by buying their actual products. Please don’t steal music or movies. Artists and, their issuing companies need the money to continue their quest to provide you with art that will enrich your life. You will see a “slash mark” here and, there in the above list and, this indicates that I myself often purchase items in more than one format and, I hope that you will, too… I buy the CD and, the LP etc. I listen to the LP at home and, the CD in my car.

The items on this list are presented in alphabetical order by title because, once you get up to the high level that these artists represent, no one should say that one particular artist is # 1 and, someone else is not. To me, the giving out of “awards” for anything in the arts is a misplaced concept. Any such competition belongs in sports, where it is obvious that competition is the object and, that it is “game on”. I love the clear delineation in sports, where we know that the guy who scored the most goals or, passed for the most yards or whatever, is the best. However, when it comes to art, the only goal should be a pure, personal expression. With regards to art, any and, all awards can only be completely misleading to the artist in particular and, secondarily, will also be completely misleading to the public. Artists should quite simply alwaysknow when they have made their own best attempt at excellence.
Every day that I pick up a paint brush and, every day that I sing, I always try to be better than I was yesterday and, I always feel rewarded by my own attempt.
