Tomorrow's Show

WVEW is launching it's first on-air fund raiser this week. We will be pitching for pennies (or more) on Saturday Morning. But, we will also be playing that good old brand new music like we do each week. Maybe just a little less. Of course, the more people pitch in, the more music we will play, because we'll be too busy answering the phones.

I'm planning a mix of tunes with some emphasis on Thao and The Get Down Stay Down. Hope to see you all there.

Listen Online

Did you know you can listen to WVEW online? You can at WVEW.org. Check us out.

this is me on nhpr

I've done a couple more music reviews for Word of Mouth on New Hampshire Public Radio. I'm crap, but the music we review is great stuff, and so is the host, Virginia Prescott. So, definitely worth a listen for leads on some good new music.

We talk about Meiko here and we did a round up of three groups (Born Ruffians, The Mountain Goats, and Thao and the Get Down Stay Down) on Monday here. The round up may air tomorrow at 2 pm on NHPR.

More radio fun.

By the way, I think Thao will be this week's feature artist on the big Saturday Morning radio show. Hope to see you then.

Born Ruffians This Saturday Morning

Born Ruffians, the Toronto-based trio, is this week's featured artists. Their new album, Red Yellow Blue, just release yesterday, is very good, to say the least. Actually, it's awesome, if you must know. So, if you're curious, or just interested in checking out some new music in general, plan to visit from 8a - 10a on WVEW - FM 107.7 Brattleboro, VT, or WVEW.org for a live stream. Hope to see you then.

no show too much snow feeling low

sorry campers, but no show this morning. the snow isn't really the issue. i grew up in buffalo, ny, so snow doesn't scare me. but, i am feeling under the weather physically, so am opting to stay home. more new music in one week. hope to see you then.
