Happy National Brother's Day!

I have two of 'em: Greg and Steve. They were 5 and 7 years younger than me and that gap seemed pretty big growing up. Greg collected snakes which I would find in my shoes (ewwwww!!!!) and Steve, being the youngest, could get any with anything. So I tolerated them and they probably did the same…

Happy National Lucky Penny Day!

Do you pick up a penny whenever you see one on the ground? I sure do. Those little unassuming copper units of currency can add up! And remember what good old Ben Franklin said..."a penny saved is a penny earned." Enjoy this video courtesy of Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show (the same band that brought you…

Happy National Buy A Musical Instrument Day!!

With a husband who is an active musician, we've always had guitars and banjos and ukuleles and accordions etc. around the house. The first time I made enough money to pay my rent and my car payment and STILL had a little bit left over, I bought a piano. It took me forever to pay off that baby…

Happy National Waitstaff Day!

Waiting tables is a tough job. I did it (very poorly) one summer in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. My first job, which barely lasted one day, was at The Robin Hood Restaurant which I think is still there. They put me on an overnight shift which was slow and fine but then the breakfast crowd started…

It's National Dog Rescue Day!

Happy National Rescue Dog Day! (that's a picture of my little Bandit ruling supreme on his favorite red sofa, may he RIP. He was a rescue many years ago and he's gone for two years now and I still miss him every day). To the many, many rescue organizations in our area who work tirelessly and…

Another new Bruce song!

Hallelujah! Bruce has released another song off his forthcoming solo LP WESTERN STARS (out 6/12). "There Goes My Miracle" is a lush, sweeping, string laden ballad that finds Bruce's voice soaring up into almost Roy Orbison territory. In fact, I hear a Roy meets Jeff Lynne sound here with the lavish orchestration. Bruce has said…

UP A TREE

Today is National LOVE A TREE Day. Plant one, hug one, say thanks to one. I love a weeping willow. And Japanese Maples. And a Magnolia......swoon.  Enjoy this Rush song while you're at it (and remember to play Connect3 each weekday at 10AM where we often salute National this National that Day!) Rush - The…

It's National Peace Officer's Memorial Day

On this National Peace Officer's Memorial Day, a shout out to the nation's law enforcement officers who do their best every day to keep us out of harm's way. It's also National Nylon Stocking Day, National Chocolate Chip Day and National Juice Slush (?) Day.  (And thanks for joining me every day on Connect3 at…

THE MUSICAL BOX COMES TO THE MUSIC BOX

I recently had the great pleasure of speaking with Denis Gagné of The highly acclaimed The Musical Box. Genesis fans will be aware that The Musical Box has  not only been sanctioned by the members of Genesis but they are the only band actually licensed by them and with access to their archives and original tapes.…

ASBURY PARK FREEZE-OUT

Just a few nights after joining Little Steven onstage in Cali, Bruce popped up at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park last night to do "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out." And super news that he's got a whole E Street Band's worth of material ready for recording! (baby pic of Bruce and me circa 1978) Bruce Springsteen/Stevie…
