Albany, NY – Here is this week's information on 51% # 1163.
BILLBOARD - Susan Barnett (Music Out)
Let's take time out from all the headlines and talk about your dreams. Did you get talked out of doing what you wanted with your life because it wasn't practical? Do you stay awake at night worrying about your children's wild schemes? Meet Lorenza Ponce. You probably have seen her - she's a small woman with a wild violin style who's backed up Sheryl Crowe and Jon Bon Jovi on tour and on TV. And she'll tell you that the last thing anyone ever expected was that she'd have a career as a rock violinist.
