Re: “The Time Jumpers' Dawn Sears Dies at 53

It is with profound sadness that Dawn Sears has left us. I just got lucky one night listening to The Ralph Emery show and Dawn was one of the singers that night. What a beautiful voice she had and ever since I just fell in love with her singing. She made Vince proud I am sure by being his back up singer. Now that she is in heaven I am sure that our heavenly Father will see that Dawn is on the front row singing in the choir. Harriet "Willy" Duran

Re: “Lunchtime Poll: What's the All-Time Best Christmas Song?

How about "Nothing But A Child" --Steve Earle? That's a gut punch song right there.

Re: “Lunchtime Poll: What's the All-Time Best Christmas Song?

Just heard Petty's "Christmas All Over" on Sirius holiday station, and it really is a pretty great song.

Re: “The Time Jumpers' Dawn Sears Dies at 53

The world has lost one of the best country singers that ever lived, and a beautiful soul. She lit up the lives of all who heard her as well as those lucky enough to know her. A sad, sad, day....

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

Not that it's any of your goddamned business, but isn't the onus to not cheat on the person who read the vows and has the family (i.e., Jack White)? They're his kids, not hers. And by your logic, that makes White the "real asshole."

Re: “The Black Belles' Olivia Jean to Release Jack White-Produced Debut Solo LP Oct. 14

I'm sorry but it takes a real a$$hole to cheat knowing that there are kids involved. Tell your cousin to get some therapy. Oh and stick to playing guitar in the background.

Re: “Scrappy independent Radio Free Nashville makes its signal heard across the city at 103.7-FM

These call letters originally were assigned to Fisk University for the campus radio station in the mid-seventies. The station was run 100% by students and commercial free. I was part of the staff as late night disc jockey and broadcast Fisk University football games. We played jazz and news, weather and local Nashville happenings.

I always get a kick out of Fats Waller's version of "Jingle Bells."

Re: “The resurgence of terrestrial radio continues as FCC grants WRVU Friends and Family a low-power FM frequency

Brian: All the ex-community DJs who are on the board of WRVU F&F definitely cared about reaching, involving and retaining an audience. We were REALLY into it. I hope the new station reflects that.

Re: “The resurgence of terrestrial radio continues as FCC grants WRVU Friends and Family a low-power FM frequency

I certainly wish the F&F organization all the best with their new venture and it's good to hear their news, but in conveying it the usually excellent Adam Gold does himself and the Scene a disservice with the unwarranted attack on Chris Carroll, someone you obviously don't know personally or professionally. Chris is among the country's most respected college media advisers, a person of wide experience, intellect, and integrity. Identifying his "official title" as "Vanderbilt director of student media" is factually incorrect, since he is not a Vanderbilt employee; he is hired by and serves at the pleasure of the board of directors of VSC, Inc., the independent nonprofit entity that owned WRVU's FCC license. Perhaps you don't like the decision made by the VSC board (by the board, not by its executive director Chris Carroll) to sell the license -- fine, that's your prerogative. But translating that dissatisfaction into a gratuitous ad hominem attack is the sort of thing one excepts to find in the comments section, not in a post by an otherwise prodigiously talented music writer.

Re: “The resurgence of terrestrial radio continues as FCC grants WRVU Friends and Family a low-power FM frequency

sorry to be the voice of opposition here, but I've actually enjoyed the new 91.1. There were a few shows I listened to on the old WRVU but for the most part is always seemed like the DJs were simply doing it for their own enjoyment rather than trying to reach an audience. While I understand that to be the nature of college radio, the concept is a bit undermined when DJs are not college students...

Oh! Also! I totally forgot about this great jam: "All I Wanted Was a Skateboard" by Super Deluxe.

Huge congratulations to Ginny and the whole RFN gang for the expanded coverage. I've been listening and it's GREAT to hear true independent radio back on the airwaves of Music City. Kudos, y'all!

Re: “Come for Steel Panther's meta dick jokes, stay for the Backstreet Boys covers

Sad to say, but Steel Panther is about the only exciting, worthwhile thing worth listening to in rock these days.

I can't help but wonder, though, that if Panther spent its next record putting out songs that didn't have all the raunchy content, could they actually break through to a mainstream audience in a big way and revive hard rock for today's audience..? It's not like they're a rap act that has nothing else except the raunchy lyrics... Panther are grade-A songwriters who, frankly, have already put out a few songs that could have been bona fide hits if not for the X-rated lyrics.

Guess we'll never know. Panther seems to have bought into the idea that they can only succeed and maintain interest if they put out over the top lyrics and themes in their songs. That's too bad... I think they're selling themselves short.

Oh, and I caught their show at Marathon the last time they were in town. It was the best live show I've seen in 20 years by any band and I have seen them all. If you want the true Steel Panther experience, you HAVE to see them live.

Re: “The Black Keys Bring Their A Game to Bridgestone Arena

I bought club level tickets to this show for $30 each at the arena box office 2 weeks ago. It was well worth that price and more. Their show Monday night was a great early Christmas present. I paid a lot more for my 300 level Foo Fighters tickets so I do hope nearly 10 months from now they give me show just as great as The Black Keys did Monday night.
