The morning crew has no fabulous vacations planned this summer. We will be here in the studio all summer spinning tunes, eating Cheetos, and giving you always learning moments.

But you know what? Let's go on a MUSICAL VACATION this week. We're taking you to Europe. Third stop - Liverpool!

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

Liverpool is a city in North West England that is home to two Premier League football clubs, 2.24 million people living in its metro area, and famously known as the birthplace of the Beatles.
