Happy New Year!

December 31, 2019


Happy New Year! Welcome to the year 2020. It's just such a fun thing to say, "2020!"
I adore New Years because it's a great time for reflection. And for goal setting. 
Yes, I try to be ever present and mindful of living in the moment. But I also treasure the knowledge I've gained in the past, and revel in the hope that comes when thinking about the future.

At this time of year I make time to sit and think. "What was good this past year?"
1. My son graduated. 2. I finally got in shape again and lost 15 pounds. 3. I ran my first 5k.

And I take time to remember what was not so good, but important none the less.
1. Losing a friend in the prime of her life. 2. Losing a neighbor who was always there. 3. Watching a loved one live with addiction.

Then I set goals for the new year. What can I do to improve my life, my family's life, our world? 
1. Spend more time enriching my spiritual side. 2. Take more walks with family. 3. Get outside more and enjoy nature like I did when I was a kid.

Finally, I take stock of what I'm thankful for: My family, good health, still being alive! And I'm thankful for you.
Thank you for rocking with me each weekend on SiriusXM Classic Vinyl. 
It's been a true pleasure playing the music I love, inside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, for listeners who enjoy it as much as I do. And when you stopped by our studio in the Rock Hall and say "Hi!", well that's just gravy. Thank you!
My best to you in 2020. May it be a year filled with love, laughter, great health & rock 'n roll.
Welcome to the new Roaring '20s! Rock on!




 

Open Invite To Stop By The Studio!

November 7, 2019


Next time you visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland stop by to see our new SiriusXM Classic Vinyl studio!
In May we moved from the 5th floor of the Rock Hall down to the main exhibit floor. 
I love meeting listeners! This is listener Jon from Indianapolis. He messaged me before traveling to the Rock Hall and we arranged a time to meet.

Please stop by any weekends between 12-4pmET. I am actually broadcasting on air, so I may only be able to manage a quick wave, but if possible, I'll ...

Dressing Up For Radio

November 7, 2019

A few years ago, I was cohost of a morning-drive Top 40 radio show. While everyone else came to work in sweatpants, sneakers and ball caps to cover up bedhead, I'd strut into the studio at 5am dressed in heels, leather pants and bright red lipstick. 
One day, my male co-host asked, "Why do you dress-up? It's radio. No one can see you." 
"It's who I am," I replied. "What I wear and how I look is part of my creative being. I love fashion and how putting together an outfit makes m...

To Everything There Is A Season

September 15, 2019


September in Cleveland is heavenly.
Daytime temps in the 70s. At night it dips into the 60s.
Sunshine is abundant. Monarch butterflies decorate the breezes as they migrate south from Canada to Mexico.

September skies are spectacular. Clear & blue one day. Cloudy & brooding the next.
The brooding skies make for great photos. 
When I left the Rock Hall tonight after a great day of playing classic rock on SiriusXM Classic Vinyl, the sky's beauty made me stop, look & listen.
The season is changing. 
"To...

50th Anniversary of Woodstock

August 26, 2019


Woodstock was a pivotal weekend in rock & roll history.
A half-million people converged on Yasgur's Farm in tiny Bethel, NY, for a weekend of Peace, Love and Music. Most of them were teenagers, or barely in their 20s.
Despite a ton of rain, lack of food, and not enough bathrooms, the miracle of Woodstock is that it all stayed amazingly calm.
Instead of anger & violence, there was peace & love.
And music of course! World-changing music. 
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, all weekend l...

No More Mrs. Nice Guy

August 26, 2019


Alice Cooper changed the world of rock and roll. 
When he came on the scene in the '60s, he was scary! Smeared black eye make-up. Sinister grin. Rumors he killed a chicken live on stage!
He was evil incarnate.
Or so he lead the public to believe.
In reality, he's a down to earth kid from Detroit who was propelled to rock stardom with catchy tunes, hard work and a really creative manager.
And he's one of the nicest rock stars I've ever met.
So when the Rock Hall decided to hold an Alice Cooper Fan A...

MLB All-Star Week!

July 8, 2019


This week all eyes are on Cleveland as it hosts the 2019 Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
And at the heart of all the festivities is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Many of the major MLB VIP parties, galas and get-togethers are being held at the Rock Hall this week.
Just for the occassion, the hall built a pop-up disco on the front plaza, filled with clear acrylic tables and chairs, a half-dozen bars, and a dance floor illuminated with sputnik chandeliers. It's so cool!
It's also been so fun ...

A Whiter Shade Of Pale

June 11, 2019


Every time I walk into work at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I am filled with awe.
This building, and playing the music it celebrates, gives me so much joy.
Sure as hell didn't earn this blessing, but I savor every single moment.
Thanks so much for rockin' with me on SiriusXM Classic Vinyl each weekend. 
Rock on!
