Some days I listen to the radio, others I listen to my iPod. I’m sure you do the same thing.
A few days ago, I enjoyed the mix as I got off the DC Metro and walked through the streets of Chinatown.
[Confession – I used to be a Bar Mitzvah DJ, so I’ve got a weird [...]

How do you properly honor one of your favorite songs? I’ll do my best here.
“More Than Words” by Extreme is a soupy love song, admittedly. It was a stark contrast from EVERY OTHER SONG Extreme did. But it was their biggest hit. When it came out in 1991, I wasn’t such a big fan…girls still [...]

They’ve recorded their takes on everyone from U2 to Justin Timberlake, but their version of “Umbrella,” made [...]

Before Christian left WWE several years ago for a run with TNA, he had perhaps the sweetest theme song in quite some time, “Just Close Your Eyes” by a small indie band called Waterproof Blonde. Haunting, catchy, just a great, great song.

I first came across the Kings of Leon in 2003 or 2004 when we played several of their songs on WICB-FM in Ithaca (congrats on the college radio station of the year award!)
Since then, they have fine-tuned their act. Marisa (my fiance) took me to see them at the famed 9:30 Club last year and they [...]
I know I wrote about my beloved Baltimore Orioles yesterday, but I am definitely still buzzing about rookie outfielder Nolan Reimold’s game-winning walk-off 3-run homer in the 11th inning.
Check it out:
