Gooood Morning everybody!  Say hello to September…Halloween candies are already out at the market, Home Depot should have their Xmas decorations out this week…  Let’s hold on to summer a little longer, the start of fall is September 23!  Surprise, surprise, Shinedown is still holding the #1* slot.  Single sales are holding strong, with over 8100 more downloads this week, over 101,500 to date. Disturbed “The Vengeful One” remains at 2 this week.  The track sold over 3400 more downloads this week, closing in on 56,000 total.  The album, “Immortalized” scored their 5th #1 album on Billboard’s 200 sales chart- a rare distinction only achieved by one other hard rock band in the history of the charts- Metallica.  We’re hearing rave reviews from radio as they explore the band’s new release.  Disturbed’s cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s hit “The Sound of Silence” is playing on continuous loop at Cindy Miller’s office at WXNR.  The band recently announced a 2016 headline tour, kicking off March 11 in Vancouver.  The 4 week run will offer a rare chance to see their arena-ready show in an up close and personal setting, such as The Filmore in San Francisco, Irving Plaza at NYC, Roseland Theatre in Portland, OR, and more.  Tickets are on sale now; see all the dates here.

Music Front And Center with Gabby Canella

CoreyTaylor_MusicChoiceBTS_070615_03Music has always been a passion of mine, but I never expected to make a career out of it. Growing up, I listened to a lot of heavy metal and hard rock and was a huge fan of the legendary college radio station, 89.5 FM WSOU out of Seton Hall University. I decided to go to Seton Hall partially because of WSOU and had it not been for this station, my life would have turned out totally different.

I became involved with WSOU my freshman year purely as a hobby; I was deadset on majoring in English. After joining the staff and weaving my way up the ranks, I realized that I could actually make a career around the music I loved so much. I changed majors fast (thank god— I probably saved myself from having to write so many extra papers) and haven’t looked back since. During my four years at WSOU, I served as Music Director and a DJ among other roles. Continue Reading »
