The Blues Traveler Traveled All The Way Out Of Ohio

Written by
Today for Alt Rewind we played Run-Around by Blue’s Traveler in honor of their founding member and frontman John Popper’s birthday! The Grammy-winning artist was born in Chardon, Ohio 56 years ago today!  Popper originally wanted to become a stand-up comedian, that is, until he performed a Blues Brother’s routine for his high school talent show. Once he graduated, he headed to New York City to enroll in the New School for Jazz but dropped out in 1990 when the Blues Traveler signed their first contract.  Where does their band name come from, you ask? Well, they went by Blues…

ALT Rewind: Underneath It All by No Doubt

Written by
Today in Alt Rewind we played No Doubt’s “Underneath It All” from their 2001 album Rock Steady. It features DJ Lady Saw, who in 2003 because the first female DJ to win a Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.  Gwen Stefani wrote that song with Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, and she actually pulled out a journal she kept after one of her dates with her soon-to-be husband and lead singer of Bush, Gavin Rossdale. In that journal, she wrote that after everything they had been through, she still loved him and though he had…
Ahead of his sold out show at the Agora on March 10th, I got to sit down with the lead singer of Blue October, Justin Ferstenfeld for a quick chat before he had to run off to sound check. To set the scene, I, along with our P.D. Alyssa, and her mom were led to his green room where he welcomed us with hugs, some water, and a general earnesty you wouldn’t typically expect from a rockstar. He carried that same energy with him the whole night. Whether it was with fans at sound check or talking to people in…

Everyone Needs A Third Place

Written by
So on a whim, I joined a bowling league thats hosted by our sister station, 97.5 WONE. A family friend had formed a team for the league but needed one more person! Even though I have never really bowled without bumpers or a pitcher of beer, I was surprised and honored to be asked.  I don’t think I realized it would be every Thursday for twelve weeks, but after the first week I was hooked! It’s a bunch of people of all bowling abilities that come together each week to make new friends, listen to some great music, maybe win…
With the Cleveland International Film Festival kicking things off tonight March 22nd at Playhouse Square, I thought I’d reminisce a bit…  Every year growing up I would go with my dad to the Cleveland Film Festival (back when it was in Tower City) and make some of my best memories. One of these years, back in high school, my dad took me to the merch table where I got a shirt and a bumper magnet that read CLE FILM FEST. I had just gotten my license the year prior and was hoping the bumper magnet would give off the cool,…

Alt Rewind: Stop! by Jane's Addiction

Written by
During today's ALT Rewind we played 'Stop!' by Janes Addiction. It was the lead single off their 1990 album, Ritual de lo Habitual. Founding member and lead singer, Parry Farrell, said he wrote the song after seeing a film called Koyaanisqatsi. It’s a 1982 experimental environmental documentary with no words, just a hypnotic musical composition from Phillip Glass. You can get a sense of the vibes in this film by just watching the clip below.   The documentary seemed to make such an impact on Farrell, that he wrote 'Stop!' about the ever-worsening environmental crisis and our society's general malaise…
