Kim Monroe’s Music Minute November 9th

Rock icon and Hall of Famer, Robert Plant is set to receive the UK Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award.  This award goes to a UK artist with outstanding contribution to the genre.  Plant, who is the legendary and inspirational voice of Led Zeppelin has just released his eleventh solo album, “Carry Fire” along with his current back the Sensational Space Shifters.

PBS is launching a new series “Landmark Live In Concert” which is being hosted by Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.  Smith and his guest, head Foo Fighter Dave Grohl share the music that they and their families were listening to growing up.  Dave and Chad sing the praises of 1970’s AM radio and pilfering their parents’ and sibling’s record collections.

This past Tuesday’s election put a new representative from the state of Virginia in it’s House of Delegates.  Danica Roem is 33 years old with journalism experience and she is the first openly transgender official to serve in the nation.  But, the really cool part about Roem is that she also happens to be the lead singer in a metal band called “Cab Ride Home.”


About Kim Monroe

Born in Northeast Ohio, traveled to Charlotte, NC, Seattle, Cleveland and finally back to Seattle. This is, by far, my favorite city in the US, not to mention the best people! I am a happy mother of two great kids and lots of animals! In my rare downtime, I enjoy reading and watching true crime shows, plus American Horror Story every season!
