April Storms: AS #600, Earth Day, and Baseball

More great acoustic-rock will rain on Storm listeners during
the month of April.

Fleetwood Mac takes centerstage in the Eye of The Storm for
the first weekend of April. 4/4 is opening day (or should I say, opening night)
of Major League Baseball, so we'll celebrate with acoustic music for our national
pastime, and baseball Hall of Famer Ferguson Jenkins will "pitch" in as

Earth Day is April 22nd, so we'll get into the ecological mind set
with some green acoustic-rock from Neil Young, Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell
and Midnight Oil. Plus, Bob Dylan gets the spotlight in the Eye of The Storm

On the last show of April, we'll celebrate the 600th Acoustic Storm, by
featuring Tom Petty in the Eye of The Storm.

Thanks for all your support of The Acoustic Storm since October of 1998!

4/3-4: FLEETWOOD MAC (Baseball, too)

4/10-11: MOODY BLUES

4/17-18: DYLAN (Earth Day Storm)

4/24-25: TOM PETTY (Acoustic Storm #600)
