Don't forget, in addition to this blog, some of the other places we hang out in cyberspace include on, on Facebook, on Twitter, on the SteveAndJohnnieShow's Channel on YouTube, on our Yahoo group and, believe it or not, there is even more with still more cyber-real estate in our future.

So, how many days til the Wrigley Life? We are SO ready!

While we count the days, we've got a few other things on our score card. As with most line ups there will probably be some changes but, at the moment, here's how it looks.


You probably know Tommy Shaw from the legendary 70's/ 80's hitmaking Chicago group, Styx and songs like Renegade. Or, maybe you know him from his days along side Ted Nugent in another group, Damn Yankees. Oh, and then, along with other musical journeys, there was that successful solo career which has never stopped.

But, did you know that this long time rocker just made his debut on the Grand Ole Opry?

Or, that he's just come out with his first Bluegrass album titled "The Great Divide?"

Well, he did and he did and he joins us tonight to share the latest on both!!


So, on the heels of hangin' with Tommy Shaw, our New Music Monday Magic Laser decided it might not be a bad idea to spend a little more "bump" time during the show scanning the tracks of Tommy's, just released, debut Bluegrass album "The Great Divide."

If you'd like more information on all the New Music Monday albums and artists we featured during the past couple of years, you'll find it right here.


We'll get the latest from Japan when we are joined by Jon Wilks, Editorial Director, of Time Out Tokyo.


Ace photographer/photo educator and CEO of Crockett and Company Technology Consulting Will Crockett joins us to answer your camera questions, share photo tips, review some of the newest cameras and help pick a winner of our Monthly Photo Challenge.

During the show you can follow along as Will shows and tells by clicking on this link to Will's "Make Better Digital Pictures" Facebook page.


For many years, as our Monday night segued into the wee hours of Tuesday morning, we'd check to see who our friend Les Paul had been jamming with at the Iridium Jazz Club, in New York. Now and then Les would surprise us with a call after his show. Once again, tonight we'll take a few minutes and remember the amazing Les Paul and his legacy as we revisit part of an interview, a story, a laugh or, most importantly, his music and listen to "A Little More Les."

Tonight we'll catch up with Les' son Rusty Paul.
