Feeling lucky? We'll be celebrating BOTH KINDS OF LUCK- plenty of tunes about both fortune and misfortune from everyone from Dinah Washington to D.O.A. Until then: may all the dice be your cousins and the all the dolls agreeable, with nice teeth and no last names.

This week's theme? Glad you asked: "FRONTMAN TAKES FIVE"- we'll be taking a look at songs where the regular lead singer steps back from the mic and lets another band member have a moment in the spotlight. Sometimes there's a good reason why the bass player doesn't get a mic, but there are other examples when the song becomes the band's biggest hit. We'll be hearing both sides of the spectrum, and it's gonna be a hoot. Ringo wants YOU to be there. You don't want to disappoint Ringo, do you?

We aim to misbehave as we take a musical look at SHENANIGANS- cons, scams, smugglings, bamboozlings, chicanery, and general sketchy behavior, with everyone from Townes Van Zandt, Curtis Mayfield, Dead Kennedys and a whole mess of others weighing in on the topic. Come alone. No funny business, but first...
