Here in Chicago, there is a wind chill of negative 30.  No relevance to the theme, just eliciting sympathy. On the plus side, SCTV, BYOB, and Lake Michigan!  Go bears?

The theme this week is artists beginning with the letter “A.” Bands starting with A, solo artists with their surname beginning with “A.”  So no Annie Lennox or Alanis.  Stay warm, everybody.

Got answers?  Send them my way.
