Looks like a nice lineup. Though I'd do away with Anne Murray, but that's just me

I hope it turns out to be a success!

Yah...she's seen better days, but I guess there trying to appeal to all ages. Man, Rush takes me back to my teenage years...2012 baby. I saw John Roberts on the lineup - I remember when he was spinning records as J.D. Roberts on CHUM a.m. - he's come a long way...they say he may replace Dan Rather on the news.

Hey there -

Just learned that the benefit concert tonight 7 p.m. EST is going to be webcast, so if you're interested go to:

Apparently is going to be quite something - 150 different personalities, in person and via satellite/video from various places in the U.S. I imagine, and reportages from the affected regions. The whole thing has been put together in just about a week which is pretty amazing.

Hope you'll tune in, you're in for a great ride for sure if you do!
