GREATGOLD.FM (04/01/2018) – The traditional wisdom is that April Showers bring May Flowers, but, this April brings more than April Showers followed by May Flowers. It brings Special Attention to April born singers and to the bands with members born in April. Plus, April also brings the annual ceremony to honor the latest inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Cleveland, Ohio, USA. The latter includes our tribute to the latest inductees by playing their songs more often all month long.
