Acoustic Sunrise Sunday February 04, 2018


It’s the big game Sunday, and as a passive football observer with no dog in the game, I look forward to critiquing the commercials. As sad as it is that so much of our collective talent and creativity is going towards selling people light beer and car insurance, it’s still fascinating to overanalyze the strategies they use to grab your attention. I admit to doing the same with the Olympics opening ceremonies, now only a week away.

So this Sunday: songs for the game, we’ll let our Grammy winners take a victory lap, and play new music by the Avett Brothers (subjects of a new HBO documentary) and Manchester Orchestra. And looking waaaay ahead, I’ll tell you how to get in on tickets to Elton John’s farewell tour in 2019!
