Jason Mraz recently stopped by Fresh to talk about his Broadway debut in Waitress the Musical. He absolutely LOVES it! Well, except for all the pie he has to eat that’s not vegan. I’m on board with this trend of Fresh artists stepping onto the Broadway stage but was wondering what that means for new music. See Also: Sara Bareilles to Join Jason Mraz on Broadway for ‘Waitress’We haven’t had new stuff from Jason in awhile and I think we need his voice in these dark times.
My perfect night is watching a few hours of performances on a music awards show. Usually, there are one or two standouts but the AMA’s had a bunch last night. Here were my favorites. P!nk and Kelly Clarkson. These two voices coming together for the first time couldn’t be anything less than epic. It was better than I ever could’ve imagined. They really brought out the best in each other and it was a beautiful tribute to our first responders. Christina Aguilera’s tribute to Whitney Houston.
That Halloween sugar rush is fun and delicious and then there’s crash and regret. When you finally get there, here are great ways your candy can help others. Think of donating it to these worthy options and let our military get a much-needed boost with a package from home! Operation Gratitude: They’ll send your candy to deployed troops and first responders. Soldier’s Angels: They will also send your candy to deployed service members and hand it out to veterans in VA Hospitals. –Xtine/Fresh 102.7
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
