We're ready to kick off the long Memorial Day Weekend by celebrating the unofficial start of summer. We're gonna spotlight "summer" songs all morning--songs with "summer" in the title...those fun songs about hot weather, sunshine and having a good time. Got any ideas?

Happy 72nd birthday this week to Bob Dylan. The legendary singer-songwriter was born on May 24, 1941. Dylan defined a generation with legendary hits like Blowin' In The Wind, Lay Lady Lay, Knockin' On Heaven's Door (later remade by Guns 'n Roses) and his biggest hit, 1965's Like A Rolling Stone.
My parents had a vinyl copy of The Free Wheelin' Bob Dylan album and I can remember playing that over and over again as a child. Great memories! ~ Dewayne
Here's a video for Bob's smash hit Knockin' On Heaven's Door from iHeartRadio:
Also sending birthday wishes to Patti LaBelle. Patti turns 69 this week. With her group LaBelle, Patti rocketed to fame in the 70s with big hits, including Lady Mamalade. Patti also went on to score a hit with Michael McDonald on 1986's On My Own.
Our congratulations to legendary singer-songwriter Carole King. Carole became the first female recipient of the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. She was the guest of honor at Wednesday night's White House gala. She opened the evening singing Beautiful from her landmark Tapestry album. President Obama and Vice President Biden joined in to celebrate Carole's remarkable career.
