The home computer is increasingly becoming the home music processing center. It's where we rip tracks from CDs, download new selections from the Internet and make our own mixes. Indeed, the computer has given us more control over our listening choices than ever before. Just one big problem. The room where you have your computer is likely not your favorite place to listen to music. The challenge is getting that music from your computer to your stereo system, where it can be enjoyed in all its sonic glory.

A celebration 15 years in the making will bring an Annapolis rock group full circle on Friday night. Jimmie's Chicken Shack, the eclectic rock group best known for its singles “Do Right” and “High,” will commemorate the anniversary of its second and most recognizable album, “Bring Your Own Stereo,” by playing the record's 13 tracks in order for the first time ever. For James Davies, the 45-year-old frontman better known as Jimi HaHa, the fact that a Rams Head venue will host the show makes it even more special.

Millions of listeners are now using their PCs as music players, thanks to MP3 technology that makes it easy to store thousands of songs on a hard drive. Unfortunately, they're stuck with the low-grade, 10-watt speakers that come with most computers. But that's changing. If you have a home network installed - either with traditional Category 5 wiring or the hot new HomePNA phone line technology - you can use the high-powered speakers of your living-room stereo to play music from your PC. The Dell Digital Audio Receiver does the work.

Stereo-Link offers easy way to play PC music on stereo For most of us, playing MP3 music files means listening to the cheap 10-watt speakers attached to our PCs - or spending $800 to buy a hard-drive MP3 gadget for the stereo.

The $139 Model 1200 is an intermediary between your stereo amplifier and your computer. The stereo plugs into the Model 1200 with standard RCA cables, and the computer hooks in with a USB cable.

It's a 44-minute exercise in musical democracy and Christmas cheer. It's a tradition for our times, a modern twist on strolling minstrels and caroling parties. It's an ethereal yuletide composition performed on upward of 50 synchronized boomboxes. It's Phil Kline's Unsilent Night. And it's coming to Baltimore tomorrow night. Unsilent Night, now in its 15th year of performances, has become something of a cult phenomenon. Kline says the event will take place in at least 15 places worldwide this month, including Middlesbrough, England; Sydney, Australia; and Yukon.

Now and then I'm seduced by a what-the-heck: a gadget that you don't really need but might be useful - or not. It's so cheap that you say, "Hey, for 20 bucks? What the heck." Then you click the add-to-my-cart button. A friend providently steered me to a great what-the-heck a couple of weeks ago - the RCA Lyra RD900W Wireless Transmitter. The device originally listed for $100, but it shows up on buy.com and other outlets for $20 to $25. The Lyra addresses a simple problem. You have a couple of thousand album tracks stored on your PC. You also have a nice stereo (or even just a boombox)

THEY CALL mononucleosis "the kissing disease," but I think that has less to do with how you contract it than it does with the fact that once you get it, you can kiss your social life goodbye. At least that's how my teen-aged daughter reacted to the diagnosis. A persistent sore throat sent us to the doctor Friday afternoon of Labor Day weekend, and when the mono test came back positive, I pulled the plug on Jessie's holiday plans. For a child who had just been told she had a viral illness most often characterized by listlessness and extreme fatigue, she had plenty of energy to throw a fit. Frankly, that's what I feared most after hearing the doctor's report.

FRIENDS IN Evergreen, Keswick, Hampden and Medfield have been calling to see if I have noticed all the sirens. How could I miss them? It sounds as if we are living at the epicenter of perpetual disaster. The intersection of Cold Spring Lane and Roland Avenue is in one of the increasingly noisy city neighborhoods. I live near there. Since we moved here in 1959, Cold Spring has been anything but a lane. First, it was more like an avenue. Then houses were torn down to widen it. Every year since, it seems more like an interstate highway.

Say the word "JoLida" around Baltimore, and people may think you're talking about a new pizza restaurant. Say it in Hong Kong, and audiophiles know you're talking about the reasonably priced hi-fi stereo equipment with an avid following in Europe and Asia, and more demand than it can meet. For all its international reputation - about half of Annapolis Junction-based JoLida Inc.'s sales are in Europe and Asia - there is not a single store in the Baltimore metropolitan area that sells the company's vacuum-tube amplifiers and compact disc players.
