93.1 Jack FM

Earlier this fall, a collection of John Lennon’s were anthologized in the aptly-named book The John Lennon Letters. Now selections from the book will be available in a new app for iPhone iOS coming soon, according to the book’s official website.

The app will include 78 letters in total – 68 from the book and 10 exclusive to the mobile platform – as well as a foreword by Yoko Ono, commentary by the book’s editor, Hunter Davies, and audio readings from British actor Christopher Eccleston. No exact date on the app’s release.

The John Lennon Letters was released this year on the icon’s birthday, October 9th. It features nearly 300 letters, ranging from lengthy notes to grocery lists and everything in between. The book gives a sense of Lennon’s life and thinking, and was compiled/edited by Hunter Davies, the Beatles’ official biographer.

Last week, the live playoff eliminations between each team on The Voice came to an end. Tonight the remaining 12 contestants took to the stage one by one to impress the judges and win over America.

After the show, viewers have the option to call in and cast their vote for the singer they want to see advance to the next round.

Voting will take place until 10 AM. The results will be revealed at the start of tomorrow night’s episode, where two performers will be eliminated.

Team Blake
Contestant: Michaela Page
Sings: P!nk “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)”
This high school senior may have a similar edgy style to P!nk with her short blonde pixie haircut, but lacks stage presence. At times her voice was flat. She could have utilized the entire stage to make her performance more energetic. Overall, it would have been much stronger.

Police: Five Dead, Including Three Children, in Suspected Murder-Suicide

NewsFeed

Police believe the bodies of five family members discovered in a Toledo, Ohio garage were victims of a murder-suicide sparked by a custody dispute between a grandmother and her daughter.

The bodies of Sandy Ford, 56; Andy Ford, 32; Paige Hayes, 10; Logan Hayes, 7; and Mada­lyn Hayes, 5, were discovered by police Monday afternoon in a garage on the city’s west side.  After reportedly finding “suspicious” notes from his family, Sandy Ford’s husband, Randy, became worried and called police to check on them. When he went to his home’s garage door he said he found it barricaded. Toledo emergency responders broke down the door but too late; all five were found dead of carbon monoxide poisoning.

John McCain on Mitt Romney: “If he doesn’t [win the election], it may have been an act of God … it may have been the storm”

Piers Morgan

On the eve of the general election, this evening Piers Morgan invites John McCain to share his trademark brand of political candor and unfiltered insight.

Listening to a CNN video clip from earlier in the day, during which Robert Gibbs criticized the Arizona Senator for suggesting military personnel don’t trust Barrack Obama, McCain said simply “the truth hurts, the truth hurts.”

Appearing on “Erin Burnett OutFront,” the former White House Press Secretary described McCain’s words as “one of the more shameful comments I’ve heard in more than 20 years of being in politics.”

This evening, McCain does not backpedal:

History suggests that Michael Bourn is likely to be a bust

Center field is the one strong position in free agency this winter, and many teams appear to see view Michael Bourn as the head of a class that also includes B.J. Upton, Angel Pagan and Shane Victorino.

I do no share that view.

Bourn turns 30 next month. He was one of the NL’s better players last season, but a large part of that was his defense. He hit .274/.348/.391 for the year. It’s the fourth straight year in which he’s finished with with an OBP close to .350. He’s slugged right around .390 in three of those years, though he came in at .346 in 2010.

The big problem with Bourn is that he strikes out a great deal for the hitter he is. In fact, he’s struck out in 20.2 percent of his plate appearances through his seven seasons, all while hitting just 22 homers.
