SUNDAY NIGHT / MONDAY MORNING:

Our New Music Monday Magic Laser lands on "Curiouser," a terrific album from a multi-award winning Australian who is just starting to make her mark in this country, Kate Miller-Heidke. While "Curiouser" has been out for a while in Australia, the album gets it's "official" U. S. release this month. We should mention that, as much as we REALLY love this album, it may not be everybody's cup of tea. Yes, Kate uses the occasional expletive in her lyrics. No, we're not going to play them on the air. Yes, we think they're hillariously, creatively, appropriate. Now you know. This is one of those albums we couldn't put down from the first time we heard it. You're going to be hearing a lot from Kate and we're more than happy to have some of your first exposure to her in this country come from us.

MONDAY NIGHT / TUESDAY MORNING:

Guitar wizard Johnny A is heading back to the Chicago area for an appearance at Space, in Evanston. We'll get some "road stories" and other tales and updates from Johnny when he joins us tonight.

PLUS

ANOTHER record price for Superman's debut?!? Comic historian/collector Gary Colabuono joins us with the "REST of the story."

PLUS

We head to the top of the world for an update from our Barrow, Alaska bureau chief, who is also the owner of Pepe's North Of The Border, the amazing Fran Tate.

For many years, as our Monday night segued into the wee hours of Tuesday morning, we'd check redhotred.com 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."

TUESDAY NIGHT / WEDNESDAY MORNING:

Since we're not going to be here for our weekly "Thursday night concert," we thought we'd move it to Tuesday night! So, tonight we're treated to a return in-studio performance from Joel Paterson and The Modern Sounds. If you like jazz, blues, rockabilly, swing ... oh heck, if you just like good music, we think you'll want to be here.

PLUS

This week on our Radio Road Test we'll take a look at the 2010 Lincoln MKZ.

Time for our weekly peek under the makeup of those who make up the casts you see on the big and small screens as we're joined by our own late night showbiz guru, Gino Salomone.

THURSDAY NIGHT / FRIDAY MORNING

We're off tonight and next week as we embark on a "fact-finding" mission to Florida's Gulf Coast to make sure that Panama City Beach hasn't been left floating out IN the gulf by reveling Spring Breakers. We may have to closely examine some beaches, the new Pier Park complex, sunsets, restaurants, like our favorites, Boon Docks or the House Of Chan and some drinks with little umbrellas in them. We know, we know, it's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it. Nick Digilio was nice enough to say he'd hang out inside your radio speaker for us while we're taking on this treacherous adventure.

Remember, this is just the game plan. Stuff happens. Things change. Our direction shifts as needed. So, you might want to check back in this blog post now and then to see if our GPS coordinates have been updated.

Huh?!?

You know, we just might need a vacation ....
