Beth Hart's voice will blow you away
If you happened to catch the Kennedy Center Honors program on CBS the other night, chances are you were pleasantly surprised to be introduced to blues singer Beth Hart.

Who?
That's what I thought, when she was introduced as part of the tribute to blues legend Buddy Guy. She took the stage with another icon, Jeff Beck, and proceeded to give a jaw-dropping, gut-wrenching rendition of "I'd Rather Go Blind." Even Buddy Guy was blown away, if the look on his face was any indication.

The Los Angeles singer has been around since the 1990's, but her career got a jump-start when she met guitar player Joe Bonamossa, and they recorded an album together that came out in 2011.
In 2012 she released an album called "Bang Bang Boom Boom," and after her performance at the Kennedy Center Honors, it's possible her career just might explode.

Atlas Genius - "Trojans"








Atlas Genius is one of those fairy tale stories of success your hear every now and then. Hailing from Australia, the band recorded "Trojans" in their self-built studio in home town of Adelaide and threw it on the internet like every other new band is apt to do. Afterwards, they returned to school to resume their oridnary lives. Unknown to them, the song began being picked up by blogs and gaining steam on internet music sites. They soon found a mailbox full emails from fans, interviewers, promoters, and agents.

After touring the United States with bands like Silversun Pickups, Wolf Gang, and Animal Kingdom this summer, they are now ready to release their first studio album entitled "When It Was Now" on Feb. 19th. Be sure to check them out for some fresh Indie jams and catchy riffs.

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo

World's Worst iPod: Engelbert Humperdinck "After the Lovin'"
One of the great things about radio in the 60s and 70s is the variety of music that made it onto the radio.  A rock song by Led Zeppelin could be followed up by Paul Anka or Andy Williams. A polka could make it to top 40 right alongside a disco song...
