Queen Of The Scene! Show tracks for Sat. July 20/13

"The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry." So the plan last night was to go see OMD at St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit. To accomplish that Clara from The Washing Machine here on CJAM graciously agreed to guest host the show. The stars were aligning, or so I thought. The bastard weather here didn't just make my week a living hell but also ruined my weekend plans. Malcolm, the drummer, in OMD succumbed to heat exhaustion in Toronto the night before resulting in a hospital stay. Which then resulted in the cancellation of the rest of the tour. Obviously, we all hope Malcolm makes a speedy and total recovery. The news on OMD's website is saying just that. But disappointment doesn't begin to describe the feelings as you watch months of waiting for the show go up in smoke. There was no point in trying to get to the show, unprepared, and ruining all the hard work Clara had done all week to prep for it. Clara, the queen of the scene, had a blast hosting and I hope you enjoyed listening. Big thanks to Clara & Chris for a great show!

Swing Out Sisters & Brothers! Show tracks fo Sat. July 6/13

Swing Out Sister made a rare appearance in Detroit this week on Wednesday at Chene Park, Detroit. One of the classiest bands and front ladies around wooed the crowd with hits and more! Such a great night. Hope they return much sooner than later. So we celebrate the great show with a few tracks from various albums that were featured live.
The show almost didn't happen. This computer wasn't being forthcoming with some of the music for tonight's show. After some sweet talking and a few hits with a was averted and the music flowed.
