World Premiere of Zac Brown Band “Heavy Is The Head” Feat. Chris Cornell

The surprising collaboration with Chris Cornell (Soundgarden/Audio Slave) and the Zac Brown Band makes a lot of sense on several levels. Both stars in their own genres, the cross pollination of music styles works. Could this be a sign that crossing songs and artists into new formats, something what made ...

On the Radar, week of February 23

Gooood morning everybody!  Here we are in the last week of February.  Rock on the Range will be on us before you know it. There will be an update on all things ROTR on their website March 2.   Be sure to check out the line-up for this year.  I’m really looking forward to seeing the Marmozets live again. I think they’ll be one of the most talked about new bands this year.  If you’re planning on going to ROTR, book your hotel rooms now- this is a major event for Columbus, OH and rooms go fast.  This is ROTR’s 9th year and plans are already underway for the big 10th Anniversary May 20-22, 2016.  In the meantime, ROTR is well on its way to the third consecutive sold out year—field passes are just about sold out.   Continue Reading »

In the studio with Cindy Miller

cindy in the studioBefore I stumbled into radio, I worked in a tropical fish warehouse, was a sports reporter for a newspaper, did a stint in retail, tended bar and played at being a club DJ. Nothing was quite the right fit, so when a friend said “you have a big mouth and you love music, you should work in radio”, I figured, why not? (Dad said he’d pay for me to either get married or go to school, which explains why my fiancé and I are now combing through the couch cushions looking for change for our big shindig this year.) Anywhoodles, after taking the course at the Columbia School of Broadcasting and many nights carrying doughnut bribes to the overnight guy at a station in Tampa who let me run his board (I thought he was doing me a favor, in hindsight, maybe he was just lazy and looking for someone to do his job for him), I finally returned to my home state of Michigan and got my first radio gig at my hometown station. I owe that first job to my mom, who was a super P1 and called the station to ask if they’d hire me – thanks mom! After some time on the AM Classic Country station and the sister rocker, I got the APD/morning gig at WWBN in Flint (the mighty Banana!), then took my first PD job at WABX in Evansville, moved on to be the PD at WBYR, WOTT and now at WSFL and WXNR in Eastern NC. I do not miss the snow. Nope, not at all. Continue Reading »

Zac_Brown_Band-Heavy_Is_The_Head_feat_Chris_Cornell_(Republic)The surprising collaboration with Chris Cornell (Soundgarden/Audio Slave) and the Zac Brown Band makes a lot of sense on several levels. Both stars in their own genres, the cross pollination of music styles works. Could this be a sign that crossing songs and artists into new formats, something what made mega hits in the past, could be a thing of a much brighter musical future? I think it ROCKS! Thank you Chris and Zac! Continue Reading »

AC/DC Announces U.S And Canadian Tour Dates

12487413_max_1After opening the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, AC/DC will be carrying that momentum into a string of U.S. and Canadian tour dates this summer.

The tour will kick off in Foxborough, Massachusetts on August 22 and conclude in Los Angeles on September 28. The new ‘Rock or Bust’ tour has 13 North American stops and is the first time the band will perform in the states since the ‘Black Ice’ tour that began in 2008. 

Chris Slade will be on drumming duties for the tour just as he was for the Grammy show. Last year, drummer Phil Rudd was released from the group when he was charged with threatening to kill a man in the AC/DC family. Continue Reading »
