The morning crew wants to formally announce that we have no fabulous vacations planned this summer. NONE. We will be here in the studio all summer spinning tunes, eating crackers, and giving you always learning moments.

But you know what? We can be in charge of our own destiny. Let's go on a MUSICAL VACATION this week. We're taking you to Europe. First top - Leeds!

What bands do you want to hear for today's 9:30 Coffee Break - and this leg of our European tour - that hail from Leeds?

Leeds is a city in West Yorkshire, England that is the U.K.'s fourth-most populous urban area, with 2.6 million people living there.
