Happy New Year and Thank You!

DSC_0612The pictures below represent a few things that we are very grateful for in 2015!

Terrific friends and musicians who came to the studio like Tom Gilliam (Ghost Town Silence) and Dave New and Vivienne Machi (of Babbling April) who were amazing for our annual holiday program (pictured below). A mighty feeling of appreciation to all of the folks that joined us this year in the studio. Many many thanks to Charles Hartman, David Payne, Larry Evans, and Joe Anderl, Eli Alban and Justin Satinover of The 1984 Draft.  We cannot adequately express our appreciation to everyone who has called in or came to the station and allowed us to interview them this year. You rock.

Tom Version 1Dave and ViviWe can never be thankful enough for all of the amazing shows we have seen this year from many incredible musicians!  A brief highlight includes The Dayton Music Art and Film Festival, Holidayton, Midpoint Music Festival, Good English-The New Old-Fashioned-Me & Mountains- Whoa Thunder at Blind Bob’s, the chance to see Moira play on the street in Over-The -Rhine in Cincinnati, Smug Brothers-Brat Curse-Manray at The South Park Tavern, The New Old-Fashioned and The Repeating Arms at Gilly’s and honestly more shows that we can remember off the top of our heads.  To all those that we were privileged to see this year – we want to say a hearty and heartfelt thank you!  And to those shows that we did not get to, because well… life and work sometimes get in the way, know that we were with you in spirit and – we’re coming next time.
