A to Z April Challenge

Yay for May!

I’ve been looking forward to May all year, but before I could partake in the fun activities I had planned for May I had to get through the A to Z Blog Challenge. I loved blogging everyday in April, except Sundays, on a specific theme. I loved doing it last year, and I enjoyed it even more [continue reading]

ZooTv – my Music A to Z

The ZooTv Tour was my first U2 tour. U2 announced they would be touring America in the Spring of 1992, in support of their Achtung Baby album. I was a sophomore in college, so I could now go to concerts! I had a subscription toPropaganda, U2’s fan magazine, which gave me an opportunity to [continue reading]

XM Radio – my Music A to Z

Besides my iPod, all I listen to is XM Radio. I really only listen to three channels on XM: Elvis Radio, the 80s station, and the New Wave station, which is really just 80s ‘alternative.’ From time to time I will turn the dial over to Eminem’s station or the Blues channel, but [continue reading]

Wham! – my Music A to Z

Before there was U2, there was Wham! Yes, I loved Wham! They were my favorite band in middle school – I didn’t discover U2 until freshman year of high school. Sure I loved Madonna and Tears for Fears and lots of other 80s bands, but I loved Wham! They were my obsession in middle school. [continue reading]

U2 – my Music A to Z

I have been an avid U2 fan for 26 years. Some say obsessed, but I like to say passionate. I discovered U2 in March 1987 with the release of The Joshua Tree. I heard With or Without You and liked it. I realized U2 was the same group that sang that song Pride I had heard a few years prior. It was my [continue reading]

Toad the Wet Sprocket – my Music A to Z

Toad the Wet Sprocket was my second favorite band in the 90s. They actually reminded me a lot of U2. They had that same passion and the guitar reminded me of Edge. I saw Toad several times in concert back then and then once a few years ago. I was a bit disappointed with that show a few years ago at [continue reading]

Soundgarden – my Music A to Z

I first saw Soundgarden back in the early 90s at the Baltimore Arena when Superunknown was popular. Then I saw Chris Cornell solo at Rams Head in 2008. In 2010 at Lollapalooza, I saw Soundgarden in their first big show together over a decade. I went it as soon as the gates opened and got a spot on [continue reading]

Rockabilly – my Music A to Z

I love Rockabilly! I think I have always loved it, but didn’t really learn about it until I moved to Memphis. I lived only a couple of miles from Sun Studio, where Rockabilly (and Rock n Roll) was born. Other than Elvis Presley, my favorite Rockabilly artists are Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, [continue reading]
