Does anyone really I>listen$> to the radio? Most of us leave the darn thing on at work or in the car while our short attention spans focus on everything but the music blaring frt-2.7>om our speakers. Yet, if you've let your radio dial come to rest on G105 for more than a couple hours on any given day, you undoubtedly stopped what you wet-7.7>re supposed to be doing in order to hear a heavily rotated, Jamiroquai-sounding tune titled, "Moments With You." The 11 men responsible for that finger-snappin' morsel of ear candy call themselves B>Gran Torino$> (pictured)\m>after a car that is as soulful as they are. The Knoxville-based band is no stranger to the area. One of the hardest-working groups in the East, the hit-makers were at Five Points Pub last week and last month. You may have let this funky party band (one critic refers to them as Earth, Wind & Fire and Blood, Sweat & Tears' love child) pass under your radar in the past, but once you link that sway in your hips, the smile on your face and the pop music in your ears to this talented gang, you'll make sure you never miss them. Start your Gran Torino obsession at the Cat's Cradle, Thursday, June 29. Call 967-9053 for tickets. \m>I>Laura Hatmaker
