Who's ready to Rock for Respite?

Every parent needs a break now and then, because raising kids can be pretty stressful.  And if you're a parent of a special needs kid, there's a chance you need a break even more.  But it's often hard to find a child care worker who's prepared to handle the extra challenges.

Well, that's where GIo's Garden comes in.  The respite center for kids with special needs opened just last June, but now needs your support to continue providing respite care and therapy at no cost.

How can you help? Come on out to the High Noon Saloon Friday August 30th for great live music from the Hometown Sweethearts, Beth Kille, and the Sharrows. Suggested donation is 15 dollars, but you can give more if you would like. (Hint, hint).

Find out more about Rock for Respite here.

And check out this video made by my buddy John Urban if you want your heart strings tugged...just a little bit.

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)"

It's not *that* kind of pool party! ~ Stevi
Pool party's are the best! ...Until someone decides to drive a vehicle in for a swim. Someone should have told her Jeeps don't make good pool toys, and aren't boyant. Check it out, it'll make you feel better about that time you walked out...

World's Worst iPod: Alice Cooper "You and Me"
Can a song be so horrible that it's actually awesome? Well, if that is possible, here is an example: Alice Cooper's emotional ballad "You and Me" from 1977. I'm not sure we could think up a more hideous lyric than "we shared a bed, some...
