Question of the Day

by Morning Show
A A

Something old? Something new? Something borrowed? Something blue?

Did you receive the gift of music this year for Christmas or Hanukkah? 

If so, let me know what you received. If not, let me know a song or album you wish you'd received.

We'll put together a set after 9, on the Question of the Day.

Question of The Day: Time Capsule!?

by Morning Show

Good Friday Morning. Paul For Corny. The Weekend Is Coming, The Weekend Is Coming!

A time capsule planted by none other than American patriots Paul Revere and Sam Adams in 1795 has turned up in an excavation at The Massachusetts State House in Boston.

Got me thinking--what 2014 items should we stow away in a modern time capsule of our own? A metro card? A SIM card? A bottle opener to crack open a celebratory bottle of Sam (gee they named a beer after me) Adams?

Let's do the time warp together. Here's what we played:

World Party - "Put the Message in the Box"

The Police - "Message in a Bottle"

Matthew Sweet - "Time Capsule"

The Chambers Brothers - "Time Has Come Today"

Question of the Day: What's Your Second Act?

Good morning, Paul for Corny on this Monday....like....a... (ugh) Grindstone Cowboy....

Speaking of which....for Question Of The Day--

What's your Second Act?

Ever quit, change career, move onwards and upwards in a dramatic and unexpected way?!

Name some songs of growth, change...and share a bold move that worked for you.

My inspiration for this QOD is Kathleen Edwards, who stepped away from her music career to open a coffee shop in Ontario. Called Quitters Coffee, it's not a twelve step program for caffeine fiends...it's a reset for an artist who bravely self-intervened before creative burnout pummeled her into coffee grounds.

http://www.thestar.com/entertainment/music/2014/11/29/kathleen_edwards_calls_it_quits_opens_quitters_coffee.html

Here's what we played:

"Change the Sheets" - Kathleen Edwards

"I Can Change" - LCD Soundsystem

"(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman" - The Kinks

"Ballad of a Thin Man" - Bob Dylan

Question of the Day: Is the Weather Really Getting Worse?

On this day in 1950 the "Storm Of The Century" tore through the Eastern US. A Category 5 by today's standards, this monster cyclone--The Great Appalachian Storm--brought Hurricane force winds to the mountains of New England and Sub-zero temperatures to the deep South.

Summon up some stormy song suggestions as we splash through this wet windy and warm late November morning...wondering if weather will be the most changeable and troubling aspect of our collective future.

Here's what we played:

"Blizzard of '77" - Nada Surf

"Telephone Road" - Rodney Crowell

"Stormy Monday Blues" - Allman Brothers Band

"Stormy Weather" - Lena Horne

On this day in 1938, Orson Wells scared the pants off of America with a radio show. On this anniversary of the "War of the Worlds" broadcast,  we're remembering great hoaxes. Were you ever fooled by one? Tell us about it and connect a cool song to it. 

Here's what we played: 

"Glass Onion" - the Beatles 

"1999" - Prince

"Atlantis" - Donovan 

"Man on the Moon" - R.E.M.

"Over the Rainbow" - Judy Garland
