Quick note: I’m the guest blogger over at USA Today’s Pop Candy blog all this week.
Filed under Uncategorized
Just caught up on the blogs you’ve written there so far. Good reading.
Bob, thanks for hosting the Pop Candy site this week. You were fantastic and carried on the vibe that Whitney set up for all of us daily readers.
Hey, thanks! It was a lot of fun.
Nice shout-out for Berkley, Michigan’s Marshall Crenshaw, one of my humble little hometown’s most notable products. I went to Berkley High School with Marshall’s younger brother Robert Crenshaw, who was Marshall’s drummer on his first five albums and on tour in those heady 80s. Just ran into Robert today at my neighborhood Trader Joe’s, and got a kick out of the fact that one of my buddies at the store, a big fan of Marshall’s, went up to Robert and told him how much he has enjoyed his and Marshall’s music over the years. Check out Robert’s “Atheist Christmas” EP on iTunes, on which Marshall appears in a guest role. Go Berkley Bears!
Thanks for the mention of Marshall Crenshaw. He is truly an unappreciated artist who doesn’t get the recognition he deserves.
Thanks. I try to mention Marshall to anyone and everyone, heh. Can’t wait to hear his new stuff. I’ll check out Robert’s EP too.
Did you see that MC is offering his new music on a subscription basis? Some new stuff coming next month..
I’ve got a cool photo I took of him a while back. i got him to sign a poster I made from it. He said he liked it better than the photo that was on his current CD at the time. If you’re interested in seeing it plus a few more of him and some other artist send me a friend request on Facebook (Brian Borbot).
Yup, saw the subscription thing. It’s a great idea.
