She is a near musical genius and is largely responsibe for picking some of the new music you hear on 105.5 Triple M. Can she work Frank Zappa or Phish into any conversation? Just ask her.
In April of 1954 “Rock Around The Clock” was recorded by Bill Haley and the Comets, and three months later, Elvis Presley recorded “That’s All Right Mama”. From these small steps, and the help of other pioneers such as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and Bo Diddley, one of the most important and influential cultural forces over the past half-century was created, Rock and Roll.
Fast forward to 2011 and Little Steven’s Underground Garage, the nationally syndicated Rock radio show hosted and produced by one of America’s foremost musicians and actors, Little Steven Van Zandt. Each week Little Steven takes audiences on a two hour trip down the path of what was cool in all six decades of Rock and Roll, a celebration of Pop culture, and features the best emerging new bands worldwide.

Physically speaking, Studio M is our own in-house concert venue. We invite artists that you hear on 105.5 Triple M to perform in an intimate setting, sometimes acoustic, sometimes plugged-in. We interview the musicians, and listen to them candidly discuss thier place in the music universe.
We record the session and play it back on air as "Live From Studio M," a program that you can hear on Sunday's from 9am-9:30pm and again during the Live And Local Hour on Sunday's from 8-9pm.
Sunday 8-9pm, The Live & Local Hour
The Live & Local Hour features a replay of the Live From Studio M recording from earlier in the morning, leading into a half hour of local artists.

Holiday sweaters--oh we love to mock them! Ugly holiday sweater parties have become so mainstream that I feel they are no longer ironic.

Paolo Nutini - Caustic Love
Paolo has been a friend of Triple M for years and his sound just keeps getting better and better. We've been playing "Let Me Down Easy" but one of my personal favorites is "Scream (Funk My Life Up) which has a pretty...
1. U2- Songs of Innocence:
One of my favorite English poets is, William Blake. Jim Morrison of the Doors was so inspired by Blake's poetry, he used one of Blake's lines, "the doors of perception," to name the Doors….the Doors! So, this U2 album,...
It's hard to believe a novelty song like this went all the way up the charts to number one---but it did, and actually stayed there for two weeks!
It seemed most everyone, excluding our meteorologist Brian Olson wanted to hear this song, which came...
10. George Ezra: Wanted On Voyage
This 21 year old sings, writes all his own songs and plays guitar bass and keyboards. And his music is beautiful, haunting and old beyond his years. In addition to the hit "Budapest", I loved the haunting "Did you...
When the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced its 2015 inductees this morning, I was very happy to see one of the names on the list: Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Even though the late Texas guitar slinger has been eligible to get in since 2008, this is the...
2014 had a ton of great new album releases, and I easily came up with more than 10 to reference. I would have loved to include The Fray, Angus & Julia Stone, Bleachers, Alt-J, and George Ezra… but they just didn't make it on my Top 10 list. Here...
