So, enjoy 🙂 We’ll be better next show.  Well, the audio will be. Kelly’s recommendation – App: Prisma An AMAZING photo editing tool.  It has a wide variety of filters where you can create some impressive images.  For example this pretty decent “no filter” pic… Street art #nofliter A photo posted by Kelly Thul (@kellythul) on Aug 11, 2016 at 4:59pm PDT Becomes this with Prisma! … Continue reading

They have many albums, but today we talk about a live concert where they covered a number of Queen songs. The easiest places to listen to the album seems to be Spotify and YouTube.

There are a few fun moments on “Easy Action”, particularly the first two tracks. That alone was a enough to catapult “Easy Action” to the top of both of their rankings.  It will enjoy a BRIEF stay in the top spot.
