Show tracks for Sat. Mar. 12/11

I love being blown away at a concert. OMD were absolutely brilliant last night at The Crofoot Ballroom. They looked great (I want to say for their age but I realize that I'm not that far behind more importantly sounded even better. Played most of my faves, they strayed from the more experimental early sound and stuck with the hits primarily. That's the third amazing show this year Tears For Fears, UB40 and now OMD. Let's hope the shows continue through the summer!
Tonight we feature the last tribute for Int'l Women's Day, this time the Brit girls groups. The set included 6 of my faves.

Next week will be a special version of Rewind! as we have a special guest in the studio. Tune in to hear his stories of the bands he's promoted, the clubs he's djed and the radio show he co-hosted in the UK. Plus all the great music you've come to expect from a Rewind! show.
