Thank you!

g5aI_GhAWhat a weekend celebration!

I write this note with tears in my eyes and a full heart. For 15 years it has been a rare privilege to bring great often overlooked music to a radio audience. This past weekend we were able to celebrate some of that terrific music together in our music family!

This weekend has been so very special and powerful. Thank you to The New Old-FashionedNeo American PioneersThe Typical JohnsonsAmber HargettRok (the only non-Dayton band), The 1984 Draft and Ghost Town Silence for an amazing night two! From start to finish each musician, each band, each song took our breath away.

And many thanks and appreciation to The Boxcar SuiteCricketbowsAndy SmithTEAM VOID and Age Nowhere for an amazing first night! You were all magic. Lightning flash magic – each and every band.

Love to Tracey Love Jipson who as Mrs Dr. J keeps me grounded and supported this endeavor beyond my wildest dreams. I love you.

Thanks are due to all the fine folks at Yellow Cab Tavern for everything. This event was only possible because of them and their hard work! If you want to experience a real rock and roll show, you can find few better places to go.

Without our sponsors — Salon Noir and South Park Pizza Tavern — we could not have had such an amazing event! Thank you for the encouragement and support. It means the world.

We must also send our heartfelt love and gratitude to Daniel Simmons for being not only one of the finest sound managers in the business but a sweet and pleasant fellow! Thanks Dan!

We must also thank Jennifer Taylor Photography for taking photos, support and just being all around awesome! Thank you so much Jenn!

Finally without the efforts of Ten High Productions this crazy idea of a music celebration for a 15 year old radio show would never have left the ground! Anyone who has organized a show knows how much goes into an event. With Ten High this was far easier. Thank you Brian and David!

Last but far from least, to everyone who came out over two busy weekend nights to see these fine musicians perform and who showered Mrs. Dr. J and Dr. J with so much kindness. Thank you so very much.

Wow! What a weekend! Now let’s go make radio for another 15 years.

YTAA 15 Year Anniversary Show

This weekend is our 15th Anniversary of Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative. We have bands who represent a wide swath of great independent music joining us to celebrate this milestone. We are very excited for the 15 Year Anniversary Weekend at the Yellow Cab Tavern on Friday and Saturday!

Celebrating a decade and a half on the airways of the University of Dayton’s WUDR 99.5fm Flyer Radio has taken Dr. J and Mrs. Dr. J by surprise! What started as a show built around a popular music course has become an effort to share terrific Dayton, regional and independent music with listeners.

This weekend music experience features a baker’s dozen of artists from Dayton and beyond whose music we have played over the years. Many of these bands and artists have been frequent guests on the show as you can see through some of the videos here on this site! It is a real honor to have the opportunity to share this music with all of you this weekend! See you there!

Mike Bankhead & Brandon Berry ‘Deface The Moon’

Mike Bankhead and Brandon Berry came into the studio to talk about their split record for Local Music Day ‘Defacing the Moon’! Brandon and Mike make quite different music, take divergent song creation paths, have very different sounds yet when it comes to songwriting, they both record at Reel Love Recording Company in Dayton, Ohio. Patrick Himes, the Wizard of Dayton Music production and the head honcho over at Reel Love, engineered the split album and played a few instruments on it as well. The Paint Splats – as Brandon’s project is called – and Mike Bankhead discussed the split ‘Defacing the Moon,’ songwriting and the Dayton Music scene with Dr. J on October 15, 2019.
