Santa Stefanowicz's gift

I wasn’t quite ready for the holiday season this year. It seems impossible that it could be time for Christmas shopping and Thanksgiving celebrations already.

The Weepies

For a period of time that seemed to last forever, but what actually amounted to probably less than a decade, starting in the mid-'00s, a virus known as folk-pop spread across the land. What started in indie circles, with musicians donning denim, adopting saccharine harmonies, and affecting a certain performative

Music erases distance. There are about 4,600 miles between Liverpool, England, and northeastern Texas, but those vanished when 9-year-old Dave Walser first encountered the Fab Four on The Ed Sullivan Show. It was early 1964, and even Walser knew his life had just changed. "I'd been playing guitar since I
