Super February on The Storm

The Acoustic Storm will celebrate February with some theme shows.

Since Super Bowl 44 will feature The Who as half-time headliners, we'll spotlight Pete Townshend and The Who in the Eye of The Storm on the weekend of February 6-7.

We've also got a couple of songs in honor of each Super Bowl team. For the New Orleans Saints, we've combined the titles of a couple of songs into "It's Hard To Be a Saint in the City of New Orleans" with Bruce Springsteen from his debut album and Arlo Guthrie's cover of the Steve Goodman classic. For the Indianapolis Colts, it wasn't as easy to come up with songs that have "Indianapolis" or "colts" in the title, so we'll play one of Indiana's favorite sons, John Mellencamp with an acoustic version of "Pink Houses," along with some stripped Stones with "Wild Horses."

For the weekend of Feb. 13-14, The Acoustic Storm will celebrate Valentine's Day with an entire show dedicated to the theme of love. Of course, you gotta have heart with Valentine's Day, so we'll focus on Ann and Nancy Wilson with Heart in the Eye of The Storm. You'll also hear music from the Lovin' Spoonful and the critically-acclaimed band Love. Plus, we'll keep the Valentine's theme going with acoustic rock from The Beatles, Stones, Springsteen, Dylan, Clapton, Doors, Van Morrison and lots more.

February 25th would have been George Harrison's 67th birthday, so we'll highlight George, both solo and with The Beatles in the Eye of the Storm the weekend of Feb. 20-21.

For the last Storm of February, we'll escape winter (at least musically) with a weekend getaway featuring the "Mayor of Margaritaville" in the Eye of The Storm with Jimmy Buffett in words and music.

Here's a plug for Lauren Greenfield. She's the daughter of Storm-friend Mark Greenfield, who got the ball rolling for The Acoustic Storm on Majic 102.7 in Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Lauren is attending Florida State as an Interior Design major and is competing for a Blackfish scholarship to study in Italy for six weeks this summer.
