Welcome to The Sunday Groove, where David Sunday discusses music of all types. David, a self-diagnosed “Music Addict” will guide your journey on a monthly basis.

We each discuss 5 albums that we feel are “Overlooked” or “Less Known.” Basically, these are albums we think need to be experienced and that should be given a second chance if it didn't initially connect with you. Please contact me @SundayGroovePTB on twitter, or David Sunday on Facebook and let me know your thoughts and suggestions.
