8 Ways The Grateful Dead Have Become An American Brand

While their music may not be to everyone's taste, there's no denying that the The Grateful Dead have been incredibly successful, not only in their musical career, but also in leveraging their success into an iconic American brand. _________________________ Guest post by Fred Jacobs of Jacobs Media Strategies Truth be told, I was never much of a Grateful Dead fan.  My tastes leaned more British Invasion – the Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin, Kinks, and the Who.  And my idea of great bands ...

Jessica Hopper's 'Night Moves': Prose Poetry for the Punk Rock Masses

Jessica Hopper is a minor deity among punk feminists of no particular age. She is perhaps most beloved for her 2009 how-to The Girls' Guide to Rocking: How to Start a Band, Book Gigs, and Get Rolling to Rock Stardom (Workman, 2009) which launched a million tweens on their journey toward self-esteem and perhaps some measure of eventual commercial success. Or you may have heard of her 2015 greatest hits round-up of two decades' worth of legendarily superior criticism, The First Collection of Criti...

When Do We Become Uninterested In Discovering New Music?

While music discovery has, in many ways, become easier than ever, a new study suggests that there's a limited period of time in the average consumer's life when they're actually finding new music, and at a certain age 'musical paralysis' sets in and the discovery ceases. ________________________ Guest post by Fred Jacobs of Jacobs Media Strategies Believe it or not, I still have friends in the record label community, despite my lurid past as “The Classic Rock guy.” And just about ...

Luka makes history while Europe watches

The last word most certainly belonged to Giannis Antetokounmpo but on a night when Europe’s two young superstars squared off, Luka Doncic became only the second teenager to record a triple double in NBA history and he did so at a reasonable hour for his homeland. Emmet Ryan on a special night for European hoops fans Martin Luther King Day is great. The important part, naturally, is honouring Dr King’s legacy but NBA fans in Europe naturally have a more selfish reason to enjoy it. It’s the one w...

What Music Rules The Car - Country, Rock or Hip Hop?

Cars have been linked to the music industry for as long as both have been around - in advertising, consumption, and even lyrical content. Thanks to new analytic technology, it's now possible to quantify this relationship between the musical and the automotive. _____________________________ Guest post by Fred Jacobs of Jacobs Media Strategies In yesterday's post, we looked at radio's sales outlook for automotive ad dollars, as well as the way car companies continue to use Classic...

Eric Church surprises fans with a special acoustic set to close day one of Ohana in Dana Point

Ohana Festival, the three-day event curated by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, returned to Doheny State Beach in Dana Point on Friday for a third year and it was filled with surprises. It was a bit overcast and warm when doors opened early Friday afternoon, but that didn’t stop hundreds of fans from leaving work early or calling in sick and pouring into the sprawling beach-side venue early. Those who were first in the gates were treated to a warm, ukulele welcome by Vedder himself on the main s...

Goodnight Detroit: KISS And Bob Seger Announce Farewell Tours

As if Detroit didn't already have enough problems. Earlier this week, Michigan rock overlord Bob Seger, a guy who probably has more hits than the rest of his Michigan '70s hard-rock peers combined, announced that he'd launch his final tour. Then, a day later, KISS -- who are from New York but who had such … More »

Bob Seger Announces ‘Final’ Tour Dates

While Bob Seger more or less said in 2017 that his current tour will be his last one, another round of dates were announced with fanfare Tuesday morning as his “final” shows, with a caveat that more are to come. Back in June of last year, a video teaser announcing the initial tour dates included […]

The best islands in the Great Lakes

Stand at the edge of any of the Great Lakes, and it seems almost as if North America has five more oceans right in the middle of the continent. The cold blue waters are as relaxing and exciting as any coastal destination during the summer with the added bonus of hundreds of populated islands just a short ferry ride away, each with its own special character. Most are heavenly for hiking, watersports, hunting, and fishing. But others have wild parties, wineries, and magical ice caves. Whatever ...

Stagecoach 2018: Here’s what happened Saturday

We’re two-thirds through the Stagecoach Country Music Festival at the Empire Polo Club and Saturday was one for the ages, wind gusts and all. On Saturday evening, the wind began to whip through the Indio site, with many cowboys and cowgirls holding onto their hats. But that didn’t stop Keith Urban from a showstopper of a headlining set that included guest appearances from the Brothers Osborne and Dwight Yoakam, both of whom played earlier in the day at the festival. Sign up for our Festival Pas...

Keith Urban creates a memorable Stagecoach moment, strong winds kick up extra dust

It had been eight years since singer-songwriter Keith Urban has headlined an evening at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival and he more than made up for lost time during his set Saturday night at the Empire Polo Club in Indio. Urban, who just dropped a brand new album, “Graffiti U,” on Friday, mixed a little of the old with the new in front of a rowdy and attentive audience. People were ready to party as he came out straight away with “Somebody Like You,” his hair majestically whipping in the ...

Hunting for Classic Muscle Cars at the 2018 Detroit Autorama

When you’re honest today, you never have to remember tomorrow what you said yesterday. That said, let’s be honest. The Detroit Autorama at Cobo Hall in Detroit is not the best muscle car show on the planet. That distinction belongs to our beloved Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals. However, the annual Detroit Autorama is still worth the trip if you want to go to a show with a wide variety of hot rods and high-performance vehicles. Be forewarned, though. If bone-stock muscle cars are your focus, y...

Soul Serenade: Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels, “Little Latin Lupe Lu”

Before the Righteous Brothers became the megastars they would become when “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” raced to the top of the charts in 1964, brother Bill Medley wrote a song for the duo called “Little Latin Lupe Lu.” It was released as the Righteous Brothers’ debut single in 1963. It was moderately successful, just edging into the Top 50 on the Pop chart. Stardom would have to wait another year for the Righteous Brothers. The original version of “Little Latin Lupe Lu” was not the only ver...

The Popdose Comeback Club: Class of 2017 (Round 2)

There are some comebacks the world doesn’t need: Sean Spicer, Bill Cosby, another Spiderman reboot — and plenty that are long overdue: til Tuesday, Lone Justice, Heathers (imagine Veronica & friends navigating the adult world), and a big budget Buffy & Angel movie.

QOTD: What Chevy Truck Was Truly the Heartbeat of America?

Besides delivering bedfulls of cash to Bob Seger’s front door, Chevrolet trucks have spent the last century burrowing into the very core of rural American identity. Sure, Ford sells more F-150s, and has for decades. There’s more competition now, including full-size pickups from two Japanese automakers — something unheard of in Detroit’s heyday. Still, the Chevrolet […] The post QOTD: What Chevy Truck Was Truly the Heartbeat of America? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Before The Sound 100.3 signs off, a tribute to L.A.’s long-gone radio stations

I’ve been talking with Dave Beasing, programmer of The Sound, about doing a “My Turn” segment on the station for almost as long as the station has been on the air. For various reasons, we never did it until last month – just after the announcement that the station was being sold. Honestly, neither of us knew it would ever air when it was recorded in early October when I visited the station, due to the station’s impending sale and unknown format-change date. It aired last Sunday. RELATED: As The ...
