Thanks for stopping by! I'm AshPash, member of the web team here at Clear Channel Charleston. I am one of the team members here that works on our websites, social media and getting you all the latest in entertainment and music.
I was born in Augusta, GA, but raised in Cleveland, Ohio. Apologies in advance for being a yankee! Everyone in the Carolinas has been very hospitable, as anticipated in the South.
I'll be posting here regularly with stuff that interests me: pop culture, technology, new music, funny observations and more. Bookmark this page and check back soon!
Favorite Bands: Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Three Dog Night, Allman Brothers, Heart, Journey, Foreigner. Outside of what Q plays: Adele, Joss Stone, Ben Harper, Mumford and Sons, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Prince, Michael Jackson, Fiona Apple, Luke Cunningham, Randy Houser, Willie Nelson, Hank Jr, George Jones, Ray Price, etc. Pretty eclectic.
Favorite Teams: Ohio State Buckeyes, South Carolina Gamecocks, Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Browns. I am a huge college football fan, first and foremost.
Favorite Food: I could alternate between Chinese, Mexican and good Lowcountry seafood all 3 meals of the day.
Favorite Movies: Kill Bill, Forrest Gump, the latest Batman Trilogy, When Harry Met Sally, Pulp Fiction, anything Scorcese, I Love You Man, Iron Man, Inception, etc.
Finally....AC/DC fans have the power to download the band's music on iTunes. The veteran rock group was one of the few acts holding out on Apple's digital download service — but no more. Columbia Records and Apple say 16 AC/DC studio albums will now be available worldwide — including "Back in Black" and "High Voltage." There have been a few notable acts who have refused to play along with Apple over the years, but the resistance is slowing. The Beatles' record label signed on with Apple two years ago. And Kid Rock's new album, "Rebel Soul," is now available on iTunes.
As far as big names still remaining out there to go digital, Garth Brooks is one of the few remaining holdouts when it comes to releasing music on iTunes. I can't wait for that day to come....Garth was one of my favorites in the day.
