Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band's "Night Moves" album is being celebrated by the syndicated radio show In The Studio With Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands.
Host Redbeard had this to say: Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band's Night Moves in October 1976 was such a major album, not just for the "eight year overnight success" that the mainstream media discovered in the Detroit journeyman singer/ songwriter, either. Along with Steve Miller's Fly Like an Eagle , Hotel California late that year from the Eagles, and Frampton Comes Alive by Peter Frampton, Night Moves and its songs "Rock and Roll Never Forgets", "Main Street", "The Fire Down Below", "Come to Poppa", and the timeless "Night Moves" vaulted FM rock radio over the AM dial Top 40 colossus that had totally dominated American listenership for a generation. Everybody's all-American Bob Seger is my guest here In the Studio for the forty-fifth anniversary of the all-important Night Moves. (read more)

EPL (singer, songwriter and guitarist Erinn Peet Lukes) just released her new single "Catalyst" (from her forthcoming EP) and to celebrate we asked her to tell us about the track. Here is the story:
"Catalyst" is a song that comes from an idea that's been brewing for a while. One of my most serious relationships ended a few years back, and the person who helped me realize that I needed to get out of it was my "catalyst." It made me think about how we all come into each other's lives and affect each other, like the butterfly effect. Some people become your best friend, some become your worst enemy, but I think more often people just help you realize and learn something about yourself. I've been led to believe that every relationship I have should be super meaningful, but sometimes the meaning comes from what they helped me realize about my life and what I want out of it.
