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

But we're happy to have taken you on a European vacation this week - with one final stop over at Birmingham.

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