7 and 7 is 1987

  Time to explore the top 7 of 1987 The Joshua Tree U2 I’m actually disappointed the band decided to look back and tour this album this summer.  That said, in 1987 there was not a finer or more exciting album,  The band’s tour that year is the one where they finally realized they weren’t […]

Weekend in LA

Three unique personalities are visiting Los Angeles this weekend and it might be fun to check in to see what they’re up to. When Nellie McKay first hit with her album “Get Away From Me” (a play on Norah Jones “Come Away With Me”) she was compared to Doris Day…if she had a mouth like […]
