This blog was created by Rob Maurer, creator of the now-defunct FOXLight music and DVD release blog that ran on foxnewsradio.com from 2008-2013. Rob is a 15-year radio production professional based in NYC, who’s had a life-long love affair with music – amassing a collection of over 3,000 CDs, 500 LPs and gigabytes of downloads.
Rather than create another strict weekly music release blog, “One Good Thing About Music…” will be steeped in opinion, rants, some reviews, and an occasional trip through Rob’s collection which contains many genres including rock, jazz, soul, disco, country, metal and classical. Above all, his favorite band is Steely Dan.
And the name of the blog comes from Rob’s favorite lyrical quote: “One good thing about music / when it hits, you feel no pain.” –Bob Marley “Trenchtown Rock”
