Turns out Fiona's not the only musician in her family! Here, she's teamed up with her cabaret singer sister, Maude Maggart, to cover Austrian composer Anton Karas' "I'm in the Middle of a Riddle."

KGSR Artists Nominated for Grammy's
12/9/2013 11:43:00 AM
KGSR is proud to have played these artists in 2013!
And because people usually ask, "What's the difference between Record of the Year and Album of the Year?" I'm here to tell you that the REAL question is, "What's the difference between Record of the Year and Song of the Year?" RECORD of the year is awarded to the performers of the song while SONG of the year is awarded to the writers of the song. Album of the year is just that.
Congratulations to the 2014 nomineers! I am particularly proud of and excited for Sara Bareilles, how about you?
