In 2017 my Website was migrated to the clouds and reduced in size.
Hence some links below are broken.
One thing to try if a “www” link is broken is to substitute “faculty” for “www”
For example a broken link
http://www.trinity.edu/rjensen/Pictures.htm
can be changed to corrected link
http://faculty.trinity.edu/rjensen/Pictures.htm
However in some cases files had to be removed to reduce the size of my Website

There are thousands of YouTube links below. YouTube links are like prairie dogs. They keep disappearing from sight only to re-emerge from other holes. Rather than give up on a broken YouTube link, enter the particular singer or orchestra or song title in the YouTube search box and bring that prairie dog back to the surface.

Starting today (September 14, 2006), there's a way to get access to Rhapsody's 2.5 million digital tunes, in any room in your house, straight from the Internet -- without even turning on your computer. This new system is a time/money tradeoff. It saves you time (and what some folks consider a big hassle) in exchange for money: $999 for the basic hardware, plus $10 a month for the music service . . . There are some drawbacks. Because of complex music-industry policies, a small percentage of songs can't be streamed, yet they still show up in Rhapsody's menus, which leads to frustration. And Sonos hasn't been able to implement a search feature yet, which leaves you doing a lot of scrolling through menus.

"Archaic Sounds Caress Modern Ears," by Rachel Metz, Wired News, March 20, 2006 ---
http://www.wired.com/news/technology/0,70378-0.html?tw=wn_index_5
For the time machine recordings go to http://cylinders.library.ucsb.edu/

A California library has created an online audio time machine by archiving some of the oldest sounds ever recorded.

A few mouse clicks give way to the jubilant sounds of Billy Murray singing "Alexander's Ragtime Band" or Ada Jones warbling "Whistle and I'll Wait for You." Some pieces, like "Negro Recollections," serve as reminders of America's deeply racist past.

Curators at the University of California at Santa Barbara's Donald C. Davidson Library have digitized 6,000 late 19th-century and early 20th-century wax and plastic cylinder recordings -- precursors to the flat record. The audio, which includes ragtime hits, vaudeville routines and presidential speeches, encapsulates history with crackles and hisses, but archivists say preserving the sounds now is vital because the cylinders are deteriorating.

"The major record companies have been neglecting this aspect of music for the better part of 90 years," said David Seubert, director of the Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project.

Since the site went up in November, audiophiles have downloaded 700,000 recordings, much to Seubert's surprise. The collection excites audio experts and cylinder fans, who now have free access to the works anytime, anywhere. People are burning them onto CDs, using them on internet radio stations and possibly remixing them, he said.

All recordings on the site are in the public domain, Seubert said, and cleaned-up MP3 versions hold a Creative Commons license.

In the cylinder's heyday, people would slip a nickel in an arcade machine to listen to a song, said Mark Ballora, a music technology assistant professor at Penn State University.

"Essentially, we've got one of these arcades again, but it doesn't cost us a nickel as long as we have a computer," he said. "And they probably didn't have 6,000 available in these old arcades; there were probably a few dozen."

But creating quality digital copies of cylinder recordings wasn't possible until recently, said Noah Pollaczek, a UCSB library audio technician. In the past, technicians had to play the cylinders on phonographs, and cylinders running at different speeds each required a different phonograph. Users wound them up, and a needle hit the cylinder's recorded grooves, amplifying the music through a horn. Holding a microphone up to the horn didn't make a high-quality recording.

So a few years ago, French cylinder collector Henri Chamoux invented the Archeophone, which can play cylinders of various sizes and speeds and transfer the sound to a computer through a patch bay.

The Archeophone encodes cylinder music as scratchy-sounding WAV files that users can stream or download as original recordings or cleaned-up MP3 versions.

Peter Dilg collects cylinders and runs Baldwin, New York-based Wizard Record Company, which creates new cylinder recordings. He's thrilled about the project.

"Our American culture is on those records," he said. "Not just our culture, but other cultures. It's the very beginning of home entertainment, as far as music in somebody's living room."

Bob Jensen's patriotism message/music on September 10, 2007

Videos Lending Insight Into Leading Terrorists and Their Motives

Imagining Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah bravely standing knee deep in Jewish blood raising Hezbollah's yellow and green flag before masses of his fighters in Tel Aviv is sheer fantasy. Instead he'd have to bury himself much deeper than bin Laden and never show his head again in open air. Terrorism's a nobody-wins game! It's only a losing game of revenge.

For example, when retreating (literally sounding retreat on bugles) in August/September of 2007, British commanders admitted that they lost southern Iraq to Iranian snipers and roadside/vehicle bomb makers. These commanders specifically claimed the most troublesome clandestine terrorists were actually Iranian. The majority of American people want the U.S. to also retreat from all of Iraq even if it means giving all of Iraq to Iran. But Iranians may find collecting that prize is a terrorizing experience when the U.S. withdraws under its new president. Terrorism's a nobody-wins game!

Some Argue That the U.S. Military Under George Bush is Hopelessly Incompetent and Defeated

There are Some Who Argue That Our 9/11 Enemies Were Faked by Republican Party Puppets and
the Zionists Who Pull Their Strings

Some Argue That the U.S. Military, Israel, England, and U.S. Business Enterprises, Comprise an Evil Empire
That Needs to Be Either Defeated or Politically Dismantled

Jensen Comment
Quotations and Photographs of War --- Click Here
I believe that the United States is not an Evil Empire.
It's instead the beacon of hope for democracy and
freedom surviving against a totalitarianism war being
waged by a clever, albeit cowardly, enemy
hiding amongst and terrorizing innocent civilians!
As our allies retreat in surrender to fear of terror,
America may soon find itself standing alone in the
face of nuclear and biological terror of unbelievable magnitude.
But at the moment the only war we're really losing is the
propaganda and a dysfunctional partisan-political war!

Bravo America!
Tomorrow (September 11 Anniversary)  is a day we should honor our dead and wounded and
give thanks for those who bravely sacrificed so much for our freedom and well being.

In March, 2005, this song was performed at a Diamond Rio concert. They received an immediate standing ovation, and continue to do so every time they perform it! Sadly, major radio stations wouldn't play it because it was considered politically incorrect. Consequently, the song was never released to the public. If this song speaks to your heart, share it with friends and loved ones. Then let us cease being the silent majority and join together -- not as a particular political party, but as Americans! ---

Aloha from Hawaii Bob,

I was happy that I somehow landed on one of you're sites while surfing the web today. I ended up reading a number of them for hours. Very interesting stuff. I came across one of you're pages entitled:

"Bob Jensen's Links to Online Music and Video" http://faculty.trinity.edu/rjensen/music.htm

As well as you're "Music Page"  http://www.resnet.trinity.edu/tdubose/music_page.htm

Since I have a number of free Music downloads on my site to one of the most popular Hawaiian Artists in the islands "Israel Kamakawiwo'ole", I was wondering if you might consider posting a link to my Hawaiian Music website on either of these Music pages..?

I would be happy to post a link to you're Music pages or any linkpage you wish in kind if you would like.

I post some basic info about my site(s) (i.e: the 1st is the Music site, the 2nd is a Hawaii Photo site) below for your consideration and of course feel free to edit any of it as you see fit.

How we change over time in terms of fitting in and wanting to make an impression. I remember my blue suede shoes, pink sweaters, and white corduroy trousers in high school.

Eric Bibb grew up amid the New York City folk scene in the 1950s and '60s, a scene he calls "a magical world that I was born into and never left." Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan would drop by his house. Paul Robeson was his godfather, and his uncle John Lewis famously played with the Modern Jazz Quartet. But Bibb has since become a blues guitarist and songwriter in his own right. His latest album, Get On Board, pays tribute to his musical and spiritual heroes ---

Born in Baltimore, Md., on April 7, 1915, Holiday had an affinity for jazz from childhood. Her father, Clarence, was a rhythm guitarist for Fletcher Henderson's Orchestra, and Holiday recalls "many a wonderful hour" spent listening and singing along to Louis Armstrong and Bessie Smith on the Victrola at a local whorehouse. Holiday ran errands for Alice, the brothel's proprietor, and gladly accepted hours of listening time in place of payment.
