Question of the Day: Are You Ready?

by Corny O'Connell

Are you ready for the impending blizzard? The forecast calls for snow accumulations of 18-24", possible power outages and nearly impossible travel for tomorrow. You know it's gonna be bad when the only things left on the supermarket shelves are Krasdale cookies and Genesee Cream Ale. Let's get ready this morning with your favorite "ready" songs. List them below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played: 

"I'm Getting Ready" by Michael Kiwanuka 

"Get Ready" by The Temptations

The Lone Bellow, a Brooklyn trio with southern roots and city smarts, has returned with a glorious sophomore album, Then Came The Morning.

Falling in Love Again: The Big Broadcast for January 25, 2015

by Rich Conaty

Songwriter Sammy Lerner was born in Romania 112 years ago this week. A household name he isn't, but Lerner left us two memorable, very distinct signature songs, "I'm Popeye the Sailor Man" and "Falling in Love Again." Sammy gets a salute on this week's "Big Broadcast," along with the formidable Jerome Kern, top 1920s lyricist Buddy De Sylva, and Harry Ruby, composer of "Three Little Words." Ruby and Kern were the subject of Hollywood "biopics," with Ruby portrayed by Red Skelton, and Robert Walker as Jerome Kern.
