Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Someday Baby” by Merle Saunders, Jerry Garcia, John Kahn & Bill Vitt


Last week I posted a deservedly less than positive Song Of The Day critiquing the music from the Dead’s 18-CD “Spring 1990” box set…and I heard plenty about my comments from lots of my Deadhead friends. So, I thought I’d make it up to them with some pre-Jerry Garcia Band, JGB from the Keystone in […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Clique” by GOOD Music featuring Kanye West, Jay-Z and Big Sean


Kanye West is a mutha-fucken’ “G” – that’s not “G” as in Gangsta, by the way, that’s “G” as in GENIUS. Think what you may about Kanye’s antics, and he’s always full of surprises, but you can’t touch him when it comes to creating some of the greatest Hip Hop records…ever! Truth be told, the […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Baby Hold On” by Eddie Money


This ex-NYC cop burst onto the music scene in 1977 with his own brand of meat ’n’ potatoes rock that fit perfectly into FM radio formats of the day. It was rock impresario, Bill Graham, who signed the former Eddie Mahoney to his management company and secured him a record deal with Columbia Records resulting […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Loser” by Grateful Dead


The latest mammoth box from the Grateful Dead archives is “Spring 1990” featuring 18 discs spanning six full shows between March and April 1990. If you believe the powers that be at, the Spring 1990 tour was “consistently great, where every show is excellent, not a dud in the bunch.” Now I saw my […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “All Apologies” by Nirvana


I don’t know how many people realized what we had with Kurt Cobain when he was alive…much less himself…but his contributions to music have grown enormously with the passage of time. No time to write today…it’s Yom Kippur and that would be considered work. So I will just leave you with “All Apologies” until tomorrow […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “I’m Sorry” by Brenda Lee


Well, it is Yom Kippur…and what better way to atone for sins than to apologize with a little help from Little Miss Dynamite and her 1960 smash hit. Brenda Lee was 15 years old when she recorded the song and Decca Records held back the release of the single because they thought she was too […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Labrador” by Aimee Mann


Aimee Man has been creating articulate character sketches in song since the 1980s when she was MTV-marketed as part of the group ‘Til Tuesday and could regularly be seen (heavily made up) singing “Voices Carry” sandwiched between Milli Vanilli and Culture Club videos. After the demise of ‘Til Tuesday, Mann set out on a solo […]

Previously, Northwestern had beaten Vanderbilt, Syracuse, and Boston College.  The Wildcats’ 31-point margin of victory over South Dakota was […]

Movie Review: Trouble With The Curve


It never ceases to amaze me how big time entertainers can be so polished when they have a script to work with and look so goofy without one. Ever notice how silly some of the biggest names in Hollywood are when they appear on the various talk shows? A case in point is Clint Eastwood. […]
