Wild Wednesday

January 10, 2018
We just received a new CD from Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox and as I listened to it this morning I went wild!  I'm a long-time fan, especially "All About That Bass".  They are always raising the bar - check it out!       

Listen for more on Fresh Tracks at 11 a.m. this Friday Jan. 2!
