Big thanks to Michael Todaro from Power Balladz: for the morning conversation about power ballads—structure, lyrics, their place in rock history, and the reason he co-created a cabaret-style musical around them (running at The Lab theater through June 28th). Thanks, also, to Michael for his good sense of humor with the power ballad off. Besides covers of Led Zeppelin and Queen, we heard new music from Raul Malo, A Fine Frenzy, and Jill Sobule this morning (thanks, Jim, for the Jill Sobule!).
