In some ways, the Browns were asking for this when they went with such a young roster. By this, I mean losing. By this, I mean agitation. By this, I mean asking a beaten-down, impatient fan base to just wait because going young is the best way to build a team. It is the wisest road, assuming the young players have talent.

There are classical musicians, rock musicians, pop musicians, jazz musicians -- and then there is Elvis Costello, a genre unto himself. For the better part of three decades, the British-born, severely bespectacled Costello has been a remarkable source of interesting, sophisticated, surprising music and music-making, earning a broad fan base with his skills as a singer/songwriter and guitarist. BSO and ELVIS COSTELLO 8 tonight at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Remaining tickets are $34 to $90. Call 410-783-8000 or visit baltimoresymphony.

Alex Turner has a writer's eye. The Arctic Monkeys' singer-songwriter pens lyrics full of biting wit and pointed remarks. On "Reckless Serenade," a track from his band's recently released fourth album, he sings of the "type of kisses where teeth collide" before his narrator sadly retreats, singing, "Called up to listen to the voice of reason and got his answering machine. " His perspective, both humorous and earnest, stands out in modern-day rock. So where does the 25-year-old from Sheffield, England, draw inspiration?

— Until recently, Paul Reed Smith Guitars sold only American-made instruments for more than $2,000 and Korean-made guitars retailing for about $700. To fill the gap — and with something U.S.-made, no less — the Eastern Shore company needed a design that could go from wood to instrument in dramatically less time. Guitars in its core, high-end line take about 20 hours to manufacture. Finding efficiencies is tricky enough when you mass-produce widgets. Imagine the challenge for a company whose niche is high-quality guitars — instruments that have to look and sound good enough to tempt buyers away from the better-known Fender and Gibson brands.

Seven weeks ago, a warehouse clerk in Savage was fired after a co-worker complained about his taste in morning radio: the raucous Grego and Mo show on WIYY (98 Rock), where seemingly no racial, ethnic or sexual jokes were out of bounds. Yesterday, Grego and Mo themselves were fired.Greg Onofrio and Maurice Billington, both 29, were fired after they completed their 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. show, exactly 10 months after they took to the local airwaves with an outrageous, Howard Stern-like style that has generated complaints from African-Americans and other minorities.

L aurie DeYoung doesn't hesitate when asked for a defining moment from her 24-plus years as the morning voice of WPOC-FM. The moment was not heard on air, has nothing to do with the country music the station plays and happened well out of the public eye. But it goes a long way toward explaining why she has remained a dominant force on Baltimore's airwaves for more than two decades, and why she was honored in Nashville on Tuesday with her induction to...
