Kesha's Billboard Music Awards performance in doubt

Dr. Luke is keeping Kesha down, again. The Billboard Music Awards (happening this Sunday, May 22 in Las Vegas) had invited Kesha to perform, she accepted, and everything appeared to be a go. But today the BBMA's released a statement today saying that Dr. Luke and his label, Kemosabe Records, which...

Susannah Jones, last living American born in the 19th century, dies

Imagine the changes 116-year old Susannah Jones saw in her life. When she was born in July of 1899, the Wright Brothers were yet to fly their rudimentary "airplane." Marconi had not yet sent his first wireless transmission (radio!), and cars were in the very early stages of production, and...

Selena Gomez!

I was lucky enough to get to sit down with Selena before her Revival Tour concert at Sleep Train Arena last night. Hope you enjoy our chat! In case you were wondering, Selena requested this to be an audio only interview, no video, so you won't see anything in the player when you listen to it. I did...

Sacramento's favorite Prince songs!

It's been 7 hours and 13 days... That was the first line of Nothing Compares 2 U , a song Prince wrote and recorded in 1985. It wasn't well known however until five years later when Sinead O'Connor covered the song, and her version went on to become a massive worldwide hit. It's kind of like how so...

100-year old breaks world record!

I love stories like this. 100-year old Ida Keeling set a new world record at this weekend's Penn Relays, an annual meet held in the Philadelphia area. She "ran" the 100-meter dash in 77.33 seconds, a record for folks who have been on the planet for a century or more. To be honest, how many 100-year...

Did you know Cake By The Ocean said that??

OK I feel a little foolish because Cake By The Ocean is one of my favorite songs of 2016 so far, and I've heard it many, many, many times as you can imagine. But not until I played it today did I noticed that they sing actual flavors of cake toward the end of the song! My mind is blown! The lyric...

New Kesha music coming Friday!

It started with a tweet from Zedd, telling Kesha he'd be happy to put out a song with her despite her drama with her record label. Then, she popped up as a surprise guest during his set at Coachella a couple weekends ago singing the song True Colors (not a Cyndi Lauper cover! haha). Today, Zedd...

How far would you go for KFC?

I find this awfully charming. A Canadian man by the name of Mike Hovac drove 870 miles (round trip) to keep an anniversary tradition he shared with his wife Angela. It all began on their wedding day when they had KFC at the reception (don't judge!). For the 15 years since, they'd enjoyed some...
