Final Studio A2 on the Road of 'o6 is this Friday

A long overdue post to remind one and all that I'll be at the Liberty St. Borders in Ann Arbor this Friday (12/1) at 12:30pm to host a live performance by singer-songwriters Sonya Kitchell and Ben Taylor (the son of James Taylor and Carly Simon!). Stop by for this free, live, mini-concert on the 2nd floor of Borders - if you like, purchase a CD by Ben or Sonya and you can have it autographed by them after the perormance. See you Friday!

Bob is the man...

I'm still levitating from last night's spectacular Bob Dylan concert at the Palace of Auburn Hills - it was yet another astounding performance from Mr. Zimmerman, who played a few songs from his terrific new release Modern Times and an array of older classics, such as Visions of Johanna, Positively 4th Street, Tangled Up In Blue and Highway 61 Revisited.
I am extremely sleep-deprived as I write this - hey, I didn't get to bed 'til almost midnight, which is late when you do the morning drive show - but it was sure worth it!
Have a great weekend, everybody - I'm off to bed...

Turning the page

What an October it was - the month flew by as all of SE Michigan got behind the Detroit Tigers in their quest for the World Series. Sure it's sad that we came up short, but what an amazing season nonetheless. I'll never forget the feeling I got when my wife Kim and I walked into Comerica Park for the 1st WS game - talk about a goosebump moment!

This past Sunday I had the honor of being the emcee for the Revenge of the Book Eaters benefit concert for 826Michigan, a nonprofit writing and tutoring center for students. Thanks to everyone who showed up and made it a big, big success! Performers included the Cowboy Junkies, Blanche's Dan John Miller, ex-Pavement leader Stephen Malkmus, and writers Dave Eggers, Julie Orringer and Davy Rothbart. The evening had a beautiful, mellow vibe to it, and I had a total and utter blast...and what's best, it was all for an important cause.

Turn the calendar page and here it is, a November that promises to be a busy one. I'm off to see Bob Dylan tomorrow night at the Palace (and maybe heading up to London, Ontario on Friday to see him again there!), then I'll be at the Liberty St. Borders at 12:30 next Monday, Nov. 6 for a Studio A2 on the Road with Amos Lee, then I'll be on the air next Tuesday hosting a Studio A2 at the station with the band Guster - and there are plenty of other Studio A2s in the work as well...
