Bayfront Blues Festival Artist Canned Heat [INTERVIEW]

The 26th Annual Bayfront Blues Festival will have legendary Canned Heat headlining Saturday, August 9th, from 9:15-10:30. I interviewed the band historian and drummer since 1967, and he's the author of the best music book I've ever read, 'Living The Blues', Fito de la Parra. He tells us not only the story of Canned Heat, but also about the bands they played with, the historic Woodstock story, his playing with groups like the Shirelles, Platters, Shirley & Lee, Mary Wells, Etta James and many more.

Dunkin Donuts Soon to Arrive in the Northland, But Not Soon Enough for Rayman

It's no secret to my Kool listeners that Dunkin' Donuts is my all time favorite place to pick up a coffee with a doughnut.  When I lived in Boston, I had one strawberry or raspberry filled doughnut , and one coffee each day.
