Linda Ronstadt was not only the voice of California in the 70’s; she had a huge impact on an entire generation of singers and songwriters and became a cultural icon in the process. Whether you were a die-hard fan, a casual listener, or an avid hater, you couldn’t ignore her influence or deny her talent.  She had an uncanny knack for knowing a great song when she heard one, regardless of the genre.

There are a few families that show me how love looks and acts.  The Fullers do.  What some might see as a burden, they see as a blessing.  Read Mike’s feature from the Inspire section of Amarillo Magazine to get a glimpse into how this grandfather sees his grandson. 

With Mike’s approval, here’s the song he wrote for Max, “Son of a Daughter.”


The Avett Brothers, 'Another Is Waiting'

It hasn't even been 11 full months since released The Carpenter, the North Carolina band's most recent collection of poignant and infectious, bluegrass-inflected folk-rock. And, given the lengthy touring cycle that each major album release generally spawns — the Avetts of last month's Newport Folk Festival with songs from The Carpenter — fans had no reason to expect new music this year.

HPPR welcomes singer-songwriter, guitarist, human beat-box, throat singer, lip trombonist Lipbone Redding to our Amarillo studios for a Living Room Concert on Friday, August 2!  We are located at 104 SW 6th Ave, on the NW corner of 6th and Polk, in the basement of Amarillo National Bank's Special Assets Center.  The doors will open at 7:00, and the show will start at 7:30.  This is Lipbone's first visit to Amarillo- don't miss it!

Guitarist Adam Gardino and Violinist Kelly Champlin will be performing Living Room Concerts in both HPPR facilities on the same weekend: Friday, July 19 in Amarillo and Saturday, July 20 in Garden City.
