Happy belated 72nd birthday, Michael Phillip Jagger!

I am on the air six days a week. Funny, then, that the one day I  wasn't on the air also happened to be the birthday of the lead singer of my favorite band. I was pleased to get to see Mick & The Rolling Stones in June at Summerfest and they didn't disappoint. I can't let a birthday like Mick's go unheralded.

"Gimme Shelter" has always been my favorite song and it's a bit of a sacred cow for me. Many have covered it, few successfully. Enter Patti Smith, who did a haunting version of it on her covers album "Twelve" in 2007.
