There's always a tiny spark of excitement whenever the phone rings. Maybe it's an old friend; maybe it's a business opportunity; maybe it's a bomb threat. Or maybe it's Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson. One just never knows. This happened a few weeks ago: The phone rang, and the voice on the other end said, "Hello, this is Ian Anderson." Strange, since we didn't recall scheduling an interview with him since 1997. But, hey - free call from Tull, you know? So we had a nice little chat about nothing in particular.

They're usually a day late and 50 Cent short when it comes to musical trends. But the annual Grammy Awards, pop's most important showcase, has finally jumped onto the hip-hop and contemporary rhythm-and-blues bandwagon. And, urban America wonders, where have they been for 25 years? Hip-hop, with its incessant beats and spoken rhymes, and modern R&B, which mixes elements of hip-hop with the soulful, soaring vocals of a generation ago, rule the airwaves. Together, they make up a multibillion-dollar part of the music industry, having slowly and steadily usurped genres such as grunge, alternative rock and, with a few exceptions, good old pop and rock.

Ever since she was young, Andrea Wiegand wanted to be a musician. She played the flute in school bands and was a flute performance major at the prestigious North Carolina School of the Arts. But after her freshman year, she was filled with doubt. Although Wiegand switched colleges and majors, it was not until she was invited to a weekend seminary program that she discovered her calling. Now, eight years later, Wiegand is finding fulfillment as the new pastor of Lutheran Church of the Living Word at Oakland Mills Interfaith Center in Columbia.

It used to be pretty easy to predict Grammy winners. All you had to do was look at the list of nominees, figure out how an informed, intelligent, tasteful music fan would vote -- and then do the opposite.Think I'm exaggerating? Just look at the Grammy record: In 1964, the Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night," Roy Orbison's "Oh, Pretty Woman" and the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" were all in the running for Best Rock and Roll Recording. They lost -- to Petula Clark's "Downtown."
