5 Seconds of Summer is riding the boyband coattails of One Direction right to the top of the charts. This Australian pop-punk quartet has been on tour with 1D twice, and is following the British group's lead. They prefer not to be called a boyband since they play their own instruments and write their own songs, but the sound is undeniable. Their debut self-titled album is out now, and the first single, She Looks So Perfect, is already number one in 39 countries.
On the other end of the spectrum is Yes. This British prog-rock group has been around for over 40 years, and their new album Heaven and Earth is their 21st studio release. The album is comprised of totally new songs, including the first single, In a World of Our Own.
A LITTLE ABOUT JIM
Each morning from 5am-9am , Jim talks with them all, news correspondents from the White House to London to Baghdad; newsmakers from former Presidents to Playboy beauties; sports figures from Pete Rose to Marvin Lewis and actors, authors and activists. He's the voice of volunteerism, the emcee of choice for just about anything from Marty Brennaman night at the ballpark to a Bengals rally to a visit from the President. Jim is an avid golfer, marathon runner, the guy who will close your kids' school in the winter. And he does this all on 5 hours of sleep a day. Jim is the winner of the 2002 Marconi Award for Large Market Radio Personality of the Year. His show is produced by Greg Shurts.
