  • Babies that boogie

    Posted by PJ Lacey

    by LiveScience that founds babies love a beat, and that dancing comes naturally to infants. The research found that babies respond to the rhythm and music tempo, and find it more exciting than plain ole speech. Anyone listening whose baby just doesn't like music? What's your baby's favorite song?

    My niece Lillie digs Lady Ga Ga and Dora the Explorer!

  • Stifle new artists

    Posted by PJ Lacey
    For more than 80 years, radio and the recording industry have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship: free play for free promotion. They now they want to impose a fee – a performance tax – on local radio stations.

    There's no question that a performance tax would financially hurt local radio stations, stifle new artists and harm the listening public who rely on local radio.

    See what you can do to support local radio and stop the performance tax at www.noperformancetax.org
  • Clarkson backs up Idol

    Posted by PJ Lacey

    Go Kelly - Idol's first winner will defend the show, or what else?  Sell jewlery on the border? Kelly Clarkson posted a blog Thursday firing back at Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta, who slammed "Idol" earlier in the week while defending the GRAMMY performance by his artist, Taylor Swift.  Clarkson says, quote, "I understand you defending your artist obviously because I have done the same in the past for artists I like, including Taylor, so you might see why it's upsetting to read you attacking 'American Idol' for producing simply vocalists that hit 'the high notes.'"  Clarkson goes on to say that every artist, including herself, has bad performances once in a while.  She recommends Borchetta, quote, "Should simply take a break and realize that sometimes things won't go according to plan or work out and that's okay. "

    Newspaper critics panned Swift's Sunday night GRAMMY performance with classic rock legend Stevie Nicks.  "Los Angeles Times" critic Ann Powers called it "strikingly bad."  "The Washington Post's" Chris Richards said, quote, "A night with the charmed life of Taylor Swift: Give an incredibly wretched vocal performance, go on to win the biggest GRAMMY of 2010, anyway."  Swift picked up the GRAMMY for Album of the Year for "Fearless," as well as three other GRAMMYs.
