Here is what my bracket looks like if I am picking my favorite artist in each match up.
As you can see, I’m a big fan of the Eagles, Aerosmith and Elvis. It’s a shame Bob Seger plays the Eagles in the 2nd round if he wins because I would’ve had him going much further.
In case you were wondering, the seedings and field of artists were selected by a panel of eight people and averaged out. I’m sure you have different opinions on who should be seeded where and we welcome those opinions! Be sure to call in when we start featuring match-ups on the air on the 14th! You can win a pretty cool prize pack by doing so.
Print out or download a bracket and play with your friends or start an office pool. An empty bracket can be found on the home page. We start the same day as the NCAA Tournament, Tuesday, March 14th. Have fun!

View the solar eclipse on August 21st, SAFELY and ‘in style’!
JSE Surplus and Eye Care Specialists have your official solar eclipse glasses – locations listed below the Safety Tips!
*American Paper Optics eclipse glasses meet the international standards via the ISO 12312-2. Please read and follow any instructions printed on or packaged with the filter. Always supervise children using solar filters.
Solar Eclipse Safety Tips
- Stand still and cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses or solar viewer before looking up at the bright sun.
- Do not look at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical device.
- Do not look at the sun through a camera, a telescope, binoculars, or any other optical device while using your eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewer — the concentrated solar rays will damage the filter and enter your eye(s), causing serious injury.
- If you are within the path of totality, remove your solar filter only when the Moon completely covers the sun’s bright face and it suddenly gets quite dark. Experience totality, then, as soon as the bright sun begins to reappear, replace your solar viewer to glance at the remaining partial phases.
