"There are some good ones," he said of the new Train songs. "I’m starting to get excited. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this way. This record has clawed at my soul, brought loss, change and periods of trouble and illness. But here I stand and I say that this thing might be the best I’ve done. Definitely the best that I can do right now. That’s always the goal."
RLITM has always thought that Train are a very underrated band. Pat Monahan's writing is not only clever, but deep. Their song "Cab" reminds of us Harry Chapin's "Taxi" not only in topic but in the way it's written. And if you ever seen Train live, you know that they can play anything from Led Zeppelin to rock versions of dancey pop songs. You always come away from a Train show feeling GREAT!
On Tuesday, we'll give away a very special pair of tickets to the super secret Goo Goo Dolls Inner Machine club members only show than night, at the re-opened and renovated North Park Theatre! You be one of only 500 attending. They'll be filming it for a documentary, and the whole thing will be done in astorytellers format!
Super Goo cool...and the only way to win is to listen to STAR 102.5 next Monday and Tuesday!
Now that Easter is over, you're probably planning, or at least thinking of, Summer vacation. If the beach is your thing, you'll want to check out Trip Advisor's Top 25 American Beaches. No, Beaver Island and Wendt Beach didn't make the cut. But I bet you've been to at least a few of these. Two of these (#3 and 22) are big time hangouts for Buffalo Snowbirds, and RLITM actually lived jsut across the inlet from beach #23 for a few years in the 80's.
An awesome pictorial that will get you thinking about Summer!
Allergy season is here. Do we even need to tell you that? Men's Fitness has come out with10 Remedies That Won't Make You Drowsy . Some of this seems like an ad for drug companies, but some is really interesting, like showering at night to get all the daily grime off of you and open your nasal passages, and the emergence of tablets which dissolve under the tongue.
RLITM highly recommends NATURAL nasal sprays every now and then like Similasan Sinus Relief. It works great, and doesn't have the problems you can get when over usingthings like Afrin (sorry, Afrin!)

TMZ claims Cuba Gooding Jr and his high school sweetheart, and wife of 20 years, Sara, are separating. They cited irreconcilable differences

Contact Music says Valerie Bertinelli is going to host her own cooking show called The Valerie Bertinelli Project.
Aloe Blacc, who stars in the James Brown biopic 'Get on Up', tells Contact Music and BANG Showbiz that acting is tough. ''It was a really new experience for me. I've never acted in a feature film before and it's challenging. It's a challenging career. Music is much more fun, now, but that's because I've spent so many years figuring out how to make music easy and mindless. Acting - I've got some work to do. You're basically an instrument and someone plays you. The writer of the script is playing you, he's stroking your chords. The director is playing you, he's the one smacking the drum and telling you where to go and how to do it. 'You're not in control of the material, you're not in control of the words or the time or the space. All you're in control of is how you deliver it and that is a very difficult thing to do and I commend all of the fine actors that I've had the chance to meet on that set.''
This just dropped yesterday, but already has 130,000+ views and is reeeeeaaaally generating chatter. A Great Big World's ALREADY HOME video. After watching this...the wait for STARRY NIGHT IN THE GARDEN will be ratcheted up even more! Click here for SNITG 2014 tickets and info. Extra credit if you can I.D. the actors in the video...
Pennsylvania's Central York High School has suspended Patrick Farves for three days for asking Miss America to prom during her visit to the school. He popped the question with a plastic flower during a Q&A session. Miss America Nina Davuluri laughed as students cheered. School officials warned Farves not to carry out his stunt.
Nina Facebooked: "I was flattered by the gesture, although I am unfortunately unable to attend due to my travel schedule. I later learned of the disciplinary action taken and reached out to the school in hopes that they will reconsider their decision.''
The school says: "It is not our practice to discipline a student for asking someone - even Miss America - to a school dance. However, it is our practice to set expectations for student behavior, to communicate those expectations and rules to students and families and to ensure those rules are followed within our schools."
This may be cute to watch, but this dog is really out of control and shouldn't act like this on a daily basis. There are many things you can do to correct this, but the key is repetition, consistancy, and starting the coaching early. Ok...enough preaching for now...
Starry Night In The Garden 2014
June 18th, at the Buffalo an Erie County Botanical Gardens
Tickets on sale Friday for STAR REWARDS CLUB VIP’s Saturday for general public
The newest to the SNITG 2014 Lineup…
-4 guys from Dublin, 2 of them (Steve and Mark) met when they were eight
-June of 2013, they released their first studio album, In a Perfect World -You’ve heard their first single on Grey’s Anatomy and Vampire Diaries…and that fits because they say their music is not music...it’s therapy
They are KODALINE
What does the name KODALINE mean? According to Kodaline.com…their official website…” absolutely nothing for the moment – they wanted something they could take ownership of.” “We made it up ourselves, but we later found out it’s a character on World Of Warcraft,” says Mark. “I promise you, we’ve never even played the game. It’s just a bizarre coincidence.”
Steve Garrigan - lead vocals, rhythm guitar, harmonica, keyboards Mark Prendergast - lead guitar, backing vocals, keyboards
Vinny May - drums, percussion, backing vocals
Jason Boland - bass guitar, backing vocals
Kodaline's ALL I WANT is so haunting, it's turned into a two part Beauty And The Beast themed video. If you didn't know a lot about this band before, you will after watching, and listening...
The latest from Haley and Paramore just sounds like Summer! A neat, cute pop/rock song that makes you wanna roll the windows down and let it blast! And the video...just as fun and irreverent! Pillow fights, smashing clocks with guitars...makes you feel like a 10 year old...in a good way! Happy Friday!
Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates and Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band were also inducted.
Coldplay's Chris Martin inducted Peter Gabriel, who sang "Washing of the Water" and "In Your Eyes''.
Art Garfunkel inducted Cat Stevens.
Questlove of the Roots inducted Daryl Hall and John Oates.
Glenn Frey inducted Linda Ronstadt and said: “It’s about time. Linda’s legacy gives us so much to celebrate and contemplate. Linda lives in a place where art trumps commerce. Where hard work and integrity trump fame and failure. She never wanted to be a star — she only wanted to make good music. She is one of the great voices of all time.”
We know April Fools Day was almost two weeks ago, but it's looking like this was the prank of the year! This student should get an Oscar...really pulled this one off...had the teacher going till the very end. Startling and embarrassing at first, hilarious at the end...
John Pinette, who made a career out of joking about how heavy he was and how much he ate, passed away this weekend at age 50. Although you may not recognize his name, many will remember him from his appearance as the carjacking victim on Seinfeld's final episode. According to Reuters he died of natural causes, and died while attending a wedding in Pittsburgh. He was found in his hotel room. Sad...

CBS Says Goodbye To Dave: CBS CEO Les Mooves reacts to David Letterman retiring: “When Dave decided on a one-year extension for his most recent contract, we knew this day was getting closer, but that doesn’t make the moment any less poignant for us. For 21 years, David Letterman has graced our Network’s air in late night with wit, gravitas and brilliance unique in the history of our medium. During that time, Dave has given television audiences thousands of hours of comedic entertainment, the sharpest interviews in late night, and brilliant moments of candor and perspective around national events. He’s also managed to keep many celebrities, politicians and executives on their toes – including me. There is only one David Letterman. His greatness will always be remembered here, and he will certainly sit among the pantheon of this business. On a personal note, it’s been a privilege to get to know Dave and to enjoy a terrific relationship. It’s going to be tough to say goodbye. Fortunately, we won’t have to do that for another year or so. Until then, we look forward to celebrating Dave’s remarkable show and incredible talents.”
Celebs React To David Letterman Retiring
Jimmy Kimmel: David @Letterman is the best there is and ever was
Barack Obama: There are more than 10 reasons #DavidLetterman will be missed.
Ellen DeGeneres: David @Letterman announced he's retiring in 2015. It's been 31 incredible years. Television won't be the same without you, Dave.
Ricky Gervais: Cheers to @Letterman. A king, a king-maker, and probably the man most to blame for inflicting me on America. See you soon.
Albert Brooks: David Letterman announces that he will retire next year. CBS frantically looking for someone named Jimmy.
JasonAlexander: Mr. Letterman, you have always been the best. I've had more fun on your show and you've been a class guy all the way. Enjoy ur final days.
Rob's take? Glad you asked! He thinks the truth is that this may be the time that a network might be smart to not just replace him, but to go in a completely different direction. You can't truly replace Letterman, our last link to old school original Late Night Talk. Maybe going to a music based show, something like the old "Midnight Special" might make sense.
A children's hospital in Texas allowed for its patients to experience the Houston Zoo through the power of Google Glass. Remember when we thought Google Glass was pointless and kind of silly? We'd like to retract the "pointless" comment.
