POP Goes The World!

Dec 2011

Beat it kid…I’m off the clock.

  Santa may be done with you, but The Monday Morning Breakfast Blend isn't!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season and I also hope you have room for one more present, namely the musical highlights for The Monday Morning Breakfast Blend this past year.

That's right, it's not a "Best Of" show, per se, 'cause quite frankly, ranking and quantifying something as subjective as music is far too bourgeois for The Monday Morning Breakfast Blend's tastes!

A matter of semantics?


But if there's ANYTHING you've (hopefully) learned after 5 years of The Monday Morning Breakfast Blend is to just simply ENJOY THE MUSIC!
