Music News?

I am changing my social messaging strategy, so I am moving my thoughts about the day's music news to a regular column here. This will give me the chance to comment on the stories in a bit more than 140 characters.

Oh, I am also going to start a podcast soon, more on that as I get it all setup. As you can guess, it will be called "I Hate Radio" which is my response to "I Heart Radio."

Anyway, they are well worth your time and if you check out this article you can stream the album (it is also on Spotify) and read NOTS top ten tour stops of 2016 list.

Hello, World!
