Groove Thang Looking Forward To 2015

Groove Thang is looking forward to a great 2015. We have plenty of new songs to play this year - definitely more 90s through today's Top 40.
We are also working on a Linda Ronstadt project where we will be producing a Linda Ronstadt tribute CD with all proceeds going to the Michael J Fox Foundation. We feel it is an honor to support Linda and all others affected with Parkinson's Disease.
