Fense’s Radio Show: July 27, 2012

I know it’s a little late, but yesterday’s project was to get some vegetables in the ground. I planted spinach, onions, oregano, and broccoli. The El Camino got a full load of three-way soil and I finally filled my raised garden bed. That’s why this post didn’t go live yesterday; that being said, my goal… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: July 27, 2012

Fense’s Radio Show: November 11, 2011

I am becoming more and more confident in talking on the radio. I am slowly developing my voice — my on-air personality. There is still room for improvement; namely in the transition from Stuarto’s show to mine, but I’ll get there eventually.

Between ranking albums and locating album art, I took a stroll around town with my… Continue reading A Retrospective Top 33 and 1/3: Best Albums of 2008

A Retrospective Top 33 and 1/3: Best Albums Of 2006

On June 6, 2006, FensePost went live. Since its inception, I’ve written more than 1,000 album reviews and countless features, track reviews, live reviews, and video reviews. My collection has grown exponentially. I have a room in my house devoted entirely to records. CDs go in the living room and I’m out of shelving space.… Continue reading A Retrospective Top 33 and 1/3: Best Albums Of 2006

A Retrospective Top 20: Best Albums Of 2004

What a decade it’s been. 2004 was my first year in the so-called Real World; jobs, car payments, instability everywhere. Things weren’t all happy and seemingly upbeat like the mid 90s. After eight months in Seattle, I found myself unemployed and decided it was time for more education. I moved to the greater Portland area… Continue reading A Retrospective Top 20: Best Albums Of 2004
