A Wicked good time!

The Broadway musical Wicked has flown back into town, thrilling fans at the Overture Center now through June 9th.

I got a chance to see the production for the 2nd time last night, and once again was blown away. Even though I saw Wicked in 2010, I had forgotten most of the story--so it was (almost) new to me...and unlike some musicals, the plot was intriguing, the songs and dialog were a great mixture of drama and humor, the dancing was amazing, and here's the kicker...even a Wizard of Oz purist like me enjoyed it!

I tried reading Gregory Maguire's book Wicked when it came out..but just couldn't get into it. Maybe now that I know the story, I'll give it another try.

If you want to go but don't have a whole lot of money--this is a pretty cool thing the Overture Center is doing...selling a limited number of $25 tickets for every show. Here's how it works--go to Overture Center 2 1/2 hours before showtime and get in on a drawing..and 30 minutes later they'll draw some names for a limited number of main floor seats for just 25 bucks! Sweet!

Find out more about the production here.

World's Worst iPod: Hall & Oates "Method of Modern Love"
Hall & Oates had a lot of great hits in the 1970s and 1980s, and if you believe a lot of folks, this is NOT one of them! This song with its amazing spelling lesson hook made it all the way to #5 on the charts in February of 1985. We're a little...

World's Worst iPod: Olivia Newton John "Please Mr. Please"
Olivia Newton-John was all over the radio in the 1970s, with hits that included "Have You Never Been Mellow," "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)" and of course those songs from the movie "Grease." But not a lot of people had good memories about "Please...

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...

Free downloads: The Bayonets
If you were listening to Triple M on the morning of Thursday July 17th, you may have thought somehow we slipped back to 1965. But it wasn't an old song we were playing--it was a brand new one from the Los Angeles band the Bayonets, called "Crash...

World's Worst iPod: Information Society "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)"
There's something about the allure of Star Trek that made this song by Information Society extra special. It went all the way to #9 on the charts in 1988 for the band based in St. Paul, Minnesota. According to wikipedia, the band got the...
