Roots Festival Starting to Have Some Roots

roots2On Saturday we here at Triple M had our 3rd annual Roots Festival and it's getting better and better each year.  I had a chance to talk with many of you and find out what you like and dislike about Triple M.  The majority of comments were positive, but I still get plenty of static for being a fan of the Chicago Bears. Of course, I'll be biased but it was an incredible afternoon and evening.  Our local musicians, Mike Droho and Natty Nation didn't disappoint.  Both brought tons of energy and great music to the main stage.  The other local musicians, Whitney Mann, Mark Harrod and Corey Hart also did a great job on our second stage (The Century House Lounge). Maia Sharp, who has written hits for Bonnie Raitt and the Dixie Chicks, was amazing.  Cory Chisel showed us why Rolling Stone magazine chose his song "Born Again" as the next great tune. Willy Porter and his band had a great time on stage and reminded us why we like having come back to play in Madison whenever possible. However, Ms. Bettye Lavette stole the show.  I knew it was going to be an incredible performance when I handed her the microphone back stage and she started to sing before even getting on stage.   Her passion and dedication to music was obvious and she really touch the crowd.  During some of her songs there were people in the crowd who started to cry.  I didn't cry, but I did get goosebumps a couple of times during her set.

Good news for Midwest coach accused of child pornography. ~Stevi
Minnesota State, Mankato coach Todd Hoffner has been living a nightmare since last May, when he was accused of having child pornography on his work phone. If you remember, last May was also around the time Penn State head coach was fired and brought up...

World's Worst iPod:Jay Ferguson "Thunder Island"
The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...

Songs for Tax Day
So I learned today that if you're getting a refund, there's no penalty for not getting your taxes in by today's deadline. But why would you want the government to keep your money any longer than they already do? With that question in mind...

'Blood Moon' not as scary as it sounds. ~Stevi
Were you able to catch the 'blood moon' last night? It was a beautiful spectical presented by nature and the atmosphere that caused the moon to change color, ranging from bright orange to blood red. Not sure what it means or why it's such a...
