It's only been three weeks into the new year and to call it memorable would be an understatement. On tonight's show, I will be showcasing several artists that are playing in the city this week. Particularly, a benefit show that will be taking place at Plaza Bowl this Saturday. All proceeds from this event will go to benefit the Haitian Relief Fund. Along with those tidbits, I've been going through the old music collection and rediscovering old favorites. It's the Commonwealth of Notions.
