- Love & Light Within You -

This weekend's playlist is packing a few extra doses of love. Every once-in-a-while we all need a bit of a pick me up and nothing does the trick quite like being reminded that we are loved. So, without further adieu, here's a poem AND a playlist to remind you, my friend, that you are loved! It's dedicated to the research team that runs the mesothelioma blog at Mesothelioma America, who fight to keep our loved ones safe everyday.

Everything, You are. Everywhere, You can be. Everyone, You can love. Nothing, Without love. Nowhere, Without others. No-one, Without You.

Peace & Love

BEST MUSIC FEST STAFF PICKS #2B

- Dad's Record Box -

 We went digging thru pop's old dusty record box to find some classic tracks for this week's festival inspired playlist. Once the dust had settled and we dug out some gems, we thought we would pay homage to the legends that came before us. Much love and respect goes out to these greats for breaking new ground and laying down some solid foundations so that even more great music could be created! You might notice that many of these artists and bands graced the stage at Woodstock 1969 - undoubtedly one of the best music festivals that will ever happen AND a role model for every music festival that still rocks today!!!
