Rise and shine, Chuck. Up and at ’em. Look at my clock and …
I can’t see my clock.
Oh no. It finally happened. The diabetes has captured my eyesight.
No… wait a second …
My eyes didn’t lose power…
The Town and Village lost power. No electricity from the storm.
So until the power goes back on… and until I can write my blogs from my personal computer…
I’m using this auxiliary computer to craft a quick and pertinent K-Chuck Radio featuring songs about blackouts, darkness, lights out and other non-illuminated occurrences. Including…

When The Lights Go Out

Rest in peace, Chester Bennington. Thanks for giving us some awesome tracks with Linkin Park. You are still missed today.

THE BEE GEES
(The Lights Went Down In) Massachusetts
This seems to be an issue right now. No power in Georgia, no power in Massachusetts… 😀
THE RURAL CHARACTERS
Power Outage Song
Let’s wrap this up with a little comedy folk singing by the Rural Characters, who seem to be prepared for any sort of electrical outages. Ha.
And until you have power, at least you’ll have fun with an electrified K-Chuck Radio blog post!
