         Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2011 Induction Ceremony Written by Josh Jackson

        For the second year in a row I was invited to work as the script supervisor for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions and of course, I obliged. I always love hearing my friends tell me to make sure to tell someone to induct __________ (insert favorite rock group) into the Hall. (Usually KISS or RUSH) I’m not sure exactly how the nominations go about, and while I have my own feelings about some of the great groups that have been left out (Eagles, Heart, Journey & oh so many more), I was fairly satisfied with this years group of inductees.

            Rick Springfield In Concert - Nashville, TN

            It was Friday March 11, 2011 when Rick Springfield made his yearly appearance to the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, TN to perform his energetic rock set for the fans who came in from various cities on the east coast.

            Mike Arnold and James Downing of Concert Blast were on hand to record a concert review audio podcast on the evening.  Since Brian Hasbrook and Tom Thompson were out of town, they invited one of their friends to join them as a special guest host,  singer/songwriter/performer Donna Frost.  During the concert review discussion, long-time Concert Blast friend Sue Street joined them for the discussion.

                    Written by Mike Arnold
                    The concert touring season seems to run from the middle of March through the begining of December.  While we wait for the artists to hit the road or the Festivals to crank up the music for the large crowds, I decided this would be a great time to re-post our most popular Music Discussion Podcast – Time Songs from October of 2007.  

                    Brian Hasbrook brought the idea to Tom Thompson and me, so we individually collected songs from our memory bank and our research then came together to record our podcast to discuss the songs we found and to remember stories of the artists of the songs.

                        Motown Special PBS TV Special

                        Written by Josh Jackson

                        In January of 1959, entrepreneur Berry Gordy borrowed $800 and began the independent record label, Motown. The rest, as they say, is history.

                        On the heels of the 50 year anniversary of Motown, the producers of the PBS television series, ‘In Performance At The White House,’ thought it would be a great idea to pay tribute to ‘The Motown Sound’ – and I couldn’t have agreed more.
