Queen is jumping on the bandwagon, or are they? ~Stevi
It seems as though the new trend in music is to release 'lost tracks' from performers that have passed decades before. I'm not sure what to think of this; although I get excited when I hear that Freddie Mercury's lost Queen production is finally going to be available to the public, I can't help but wonder if it's music that was MEANT to be lost by the performer. By that, what I mean is: these are tracks put together, then scrapped by the artist. Whether it didn't go with their direction, or it didn't meet their standards, it was music that was not meant to be heard with their name attached to it at the time of the musician's life (this also happened recently with Michael Jackson). I would imagine someone taking rough vocals, producing them in their own way, and releasing them without the artist's consent is much like some creep taking pictures of you at a beach, then publishing them. 

At any rate, here's the link for details on Queen's upcoming release ft. Freddie Mercury

The Eels did something NO ONE expected last night ~ Stevi
Last night, the Eels were in St. Paul for a concert, and who shows up? Former Journey lead singer Steve Perry. If that wasn't enough, he got onstage for the first time in 20 YEARS and sung Open Arms. Quite impressive, considering the guy is battling throat cancer. Read the article/watch the video here!

Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer and Will Farrell in a drum-off may be the most pe
Red Hot Chili Peppers: perhaps one of the most influential bands in rock. Take drummer Chad Smith, and put him head to head with one of the most influential comedians of all time, and you have an epic drum-off. The fact that they look so similar makes it that much more perfect. Read the article/watch the video below. Happy Friday!

Jonathan may think I'm a crazy cat lady, but I've got nuthin' on this chick. ~St
This morning, while talking about my cat's Instagram account (don't judge), Jonathan kept giving me that 'you be cray' look.

However, I have managed to find a woman more nuts about her cats than me! Check out the video/read the article here! ~Stevi

Ever wondered what a celebrity musician would cost? You won't believe these pric
I always dreamed that one day, when I had 'made it big', I could pay Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Jason Bonham to reunite for a personal concert.

Then, I grew up, and realized my chosen career path would never yeild that kind of cash. Bummer.

Here are prices some musicians are willing to accept to play a private event!

A playlist for every occasion. ~Stevi
Are you one of those people who needs a playlist for everything? I can confidently say that my OCD-like obsession for carefully organized themed playlists is one of the factors that got me into radio. Gym workout mix, driving mix, intense research mix - oh, yeah.

I came across this today: The Essential Beck Groove Playlist, and it's pretty rad. Enjoy!

Oh, boy. Mother's Day is this weekend. ~ Stevi
Mother's Day is fast approaching; do you have your gift figured out yet? Every year, I seem to end up going with the solid card/phone call combo. In my younger years, going out into the yard and picking hapazard wild flowers was my M.O (which is probably why my mom would set them on the outside step "to get more sun" - a.k.a - "I don't want bugs in the house"). My mom doesn't like too big of a fuss made about her, but she does love the simple recognition.

Don't forget your mom this Sunday - even if it's just the card/phone call combo. They deserve an extra 'I appreciate you'.

Project M Recap from the middle of the judges' table. ~Stevi
Last night was one of the toughest eliminations to date for 2014's ProjectM. Every artist that has been eliminated this year has been difficult, but last night really tugged on my heart strings.

I want every contestant to know that, even though a 'no' is hard to hear, growing from it is what makes people great. I fully expect every conestant eliminated this year to take their 'no' and turn it into something they, their fans, and we are stunned and proud of.

Thank you for sharing your music with us, and putting yourself out there for us.

New music bug ~Stevi
This band is really sticking in my head. They're out of Australia, and combine fold and pop in a way that you'll be singing their latest track "Lanterns" all day. Be listening to 1055 TripleM to hear Birds Of Tokyo!

World's Worst iPod: Hall & Oates "Method of Modern Love"

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...
