57 Jahre ist Bad alt, dennoch tourt er immer noch mit seinen alten Nummer-Eins-Hits durch drittklassige Bierkaschemmen und heruntergekommene Bowling-Schuppen. Sein grölendes Publikum ist so alt wie er - und ebenso desillusioniert und trinkfreudig. Bald wird er völlig in Vergessenheit geraten sein, lediglich wenn er für seinen Protegé Tommy Sweet - der hat es zu Ruhm und Reichtum gebracht - ein Konzert eröffnen darf, fühlt er sich an alte, bessere Tage erinnert. Bad kämpft sich von einem alkoholumnebelten Gig zum anderen, bis er eines Tages in Santa Fe auf Jean Craddock trifft. Die Journalistin ist eine Frau ganz nach seinem Geschmack, mehr noch, er verliebt sich Hals über Kopf in sie. Aber Bad kennt sich selbst nur zu gut und macht der Frau und sich keine Hoffnungen. Und Jean, alleinerziehende Mutter mit viel Lebenserfahrung und noch mehr Enttäuschungen, setzt keinen Cent auf den abgetakelten Musiker. Dennoch, Liebe folgt ihren eigenen Gesetzen, und so können die beiden nicht von einander lassen. Aber kann das gut gehen? Bad kann schließlich kaum auf sich selbst aufpassen. Wie soll er sich also um jemand anderen kümmern? Trotzdem. Er gibt sich Mühe, kämpft und ist entschlossen, seine letzte Chance aufs Glück zu nutzen...
Tina Justice burst into the club like she owned the joint. Heads quickly turned and murmurs rose amid lively applause. Newspaper photographers and reporters scurried ahead of her, frantically snapping pictures and shouting questions while her security team cleared the way. She ignored it all.Restaurant patrons jumped to their feet, applauding in roof-raising adulation and admiration of her, sounding like hundreds of geese rising from a lake, noisily squawking and honking, wings loudly beating the air. One would have thought she was giving out thousand-dollar bills for all the attention focused on her. Yet, no one could deny that she looked like a cool million, freshly minted in her money-green, shimmering sheath.Initially, businessman Nico Collins thought all of the hoopla was over the very popular male matinee idol and heartthrob escorting her for the evening. The actor had just won best male actor for his role in the latest film her company, Sweet Justice Productions, released. However, the crowd quickly disabused Nico of that notion when they started chanting ´´Sweet Justice” in a rhythmic rendition of the title song from the soundtrack of her blockbuster movie.Neither Tina nor Nico could have predicted how their lives would crash together and cause cataclysmic sparks to fly. When two billionaire captains of industry collide, could both survive the experience? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Logan McAllister.

A no-holds-barred look into the remarkable life and career of the prolific musician, songwriter, and producer behind Eurythmics and dozens of pop hits. Dave Stewart´s life has been a wild ride - one filled with music, constant reinvention, and the never-ending drive to create. Growing up in industrial Northern England, he left home for the gritty London streets of the ´70s, where he began collaborating and performing with various musicians, including a young waitress named Annie Lennox. The chemistry between Stewart and Lennox was undeniable, and an intense romance developed. While their passion proved too much offstage, they thrived musically and developed their own sound. They called themselves Eurythmics and launched into global stardom with the massively popular album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). For the first time, Stewart shares the incredible, high-octane stories of his life in music - the drug-fueled adventures, the A-list collaborations and relationships, and the creative process that brought us blockbusters from Eurythmics like ´´Here Comes the Rain Again´´ and ´´Would I Lie to You´´ as well as Tom Petty´s ´´Don´t Come Around Here No More´´, No Doubt´s ´´Underneath It All´´, Golden Globe winner ´´Old Habits Die Hard´´ with Mick Jagger, and many more. From great friendships and creative partnerships, including the group SuperHeavy along with Jagger, Joss Stone, Damian Marley, and A. R. Rahman, to inspired performances and intimate moments in the studio, Stewart highlights the musicians he admires and calls friends, from Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, Elton John, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr to Bono, Bon Jovi, and Katy Perry. With a behind-the-scenes look at Stewart´s innovative endeavors that keep him on the cutting edge of the music business, Sweet Dreams Are Made of This is a one-of-a-kind portrait of the creative heart of one of its most gifted and enterprising contributors. 1.

Hollywood comes to Michigan when a film producer decides to turn a local author´s romance novel into a blockbuster.

A hilarious and nostalgic trip through the history of paperback preteen series of the ´80s and ´90s.Every 20- or 30-something woman knows these books. The pink covers, the flimsy paper, the zillion volumes in the series that kept you reading for your entire adolescence. Spurred by the commercial success of Sweet Valley High and The Babysitters Club, these were not the serious-issue YA novels of the 1970s, nor were they the blockbuster books of the Harry Potter and Twilight ilk. They were cheap, short, and utterly beloved. Paperback Crush dives in deep to this golden age with affection, history, and a little bit of snark. Listeners will discover (and fondly remember) girl-centric series on everything from correspondence (Pen Pals and Dear Diary) to sports (The Pink Parrots, Cheerleaders, and The Gymnasts) to a newspaper at an all-girls Orthodox Jewish middle school (The B.Y. Times) to a literal teen angel (Teen Angels: Heaven Can´t Wait, where an enterprising guardian angel named Cisco has to earn her wings ´´by helping the world´s sexist rock star´´). Some were blatant ripoffs of the successful series (looking at you, Sleepover Friends and The Girls of Canby Hall), some were sick-lit tearjerkers a la Love Story (Abby, My Love), and some were just plain perplexing (Uncle Vampire?) But all of them represent that time gone by of girl power and endless sessions of sustained silent reading.In six hilarious chapters (´´Friends´´, ´´Love, School´´, ´´Family´´, ´´Jobs´´, ´´Terror´´, and ´´Danger´´), Bustle features editor Gabrielle Moss takes the listener on a nostalgic tour of teen book covers of yore, digging deep into the history of the genre as well as the stories behind the best-known series. 1.
