Yesterday was the 34th anniversary of one of the biggest rock ’n roll concerts of all time, Live Aid. I remember watching it on MTV all day and all of the night on that day over three decades ago!
In honor of this anniversary, I’ve got a half dozen links to online articles about this monumental day in rock ’n roll history. Then there’s the MBIP Coming Attractions as to what’s coming up here on the blog next week.

Next Week On MBIIP:
Monday: Last night I went to the monthly “Cocktails For A Cause” party at the Ivy Club on Galena Road. I’ve never been to the Ivy Club and it was a fun evening out on their patio and Tiki Bar and the profits went to the Peoria Art Guild!
Tuesday: We continue our 13 month chicken eating tour and I’m not sure about where I’m going due to my work situation. Stay tuned to see where I end up this week on this fowl adventure!
Wednesday: I heard that there’s some new additions to C.T. Gabberts outside mural, so I’m going to go and check that out tomorrow and you can see what I find on Wednesday.
Thursday: For this week’s Thursday Minute Marty Meal I’m making a genuine chicken in a biscuit. Tune in to see me prepare this live in the MBIP World Headquarters Kitchen!
Friday: Once again we’ll find something in the MBIP World Headquarters to reflect upon and write about for the MBIP Casual Friday.
Saturday: We’re going to feature yet another Saturday night dining suggestion here in Peoria, Illinois.
And now, I have to go run errands, get tomorrow’s blog ready and rehearse for the upcoming Marty Monologues show that’s coming up on October 20th, it’ll be here before you know it! Have a funny Sunday every bunny!
