If you remember wayyyy back to when Music Savvy Mom (Ri) actually wrote on her own blog, *snerk*, then you may remember her wildly popular “Friday Fivers” and their counterparts, the “Sunday Scoop”.  This was a regular feature wherein five blind tracks were posted on Friday – no set up, no commentary.  Readers were invited…

Craig Taubman is one of the biggest names in contemporary Jewish music, and he’s got a newly released album that I want to tell you about. That’s not where I want to start, though. I’m going to start…at the beginning! This being “The Music Mamas” and all, I just figured it would be important to…

CD Review: Joshua Radin – The Rock and The Tide (Giveaway)

UPDATE! 10/12/10 OMIGOSH!  I am SOOO sorry – I TOTALLY forgot about this drawing until JUST NOW.  (No excuse, but I was at the Emergency Room all last night with my Dad, who was having chest pains…and back again unexpectedly all afternoon, so I’m a little fried.  He’s home and okay, but I was distracted,…

Love Is a Mix Tape

Rolling Stone writer Rob Sheffield captures what it’s like to love through music in Love Is a Mix Tape. It’s one of my top 3 favorite music books. If you love music, it’s a must-read, for wisdom like this: “When you stick a song on a tape, you set it free.”
