Steve Mason – Stars Around My Heart

We always love songs that mention radio, and if they have a positive uplifting vibe, even better. This week’s Best In Show,Stars Around My Heart,” is from former Beta Band man, Steve Mason, who has been laying low for a few years. We’re glad he’s back, and it sounds as if he is too. The song can be found on his upcoming album, About the Light, which will be available in January. For more information visit stevemasontheartist.com.
