Michael Rose

Michael, please. Not Mike. I was born and raised in Chicago. Even though I have not lived in the “Big City” since 1992, I still consider myself a Chicagoan (Go Bears!). Other than listening to music, I love to cook. Most weekends you can find me in my kitchen creating something. Nothing fancy, just something out of the ordinary. If you check out my blogs I will occasionally post a recipe I have created. Of course, I had to wire speakers in to my kitchen so I can have music playing while I create. Preferably some Jazz selections – Stanley Turrentine, Charlie Haden, Vince Guaraldi, and the like. When I am not cooking, you can either find me curled up on the couch watching a movie (Blues Brothers, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Goodfellas, Casino), or in my car just driving around.

Who Are Hall & Oates? Are Popular 80s Acts Already Becoming Obscure?

I recently turned 47. No, its not that old, but occasionally I feel old. Especially when situations like this happen:

We received word that there was one minute of availability left on one of our stations. I found the song 'Did It In A Minute' by Hall & Oates and sent it around to the staff. One of our staff members, who is in her early 30s, replied back to me asking:

"Who are Hall & Oates?"
