Tod Weidner & Charlie Jackson on the show tomorrow!

Tod WeidnerThis Tuesday we have a real treat for all of you music lovers! Tod Weidner (Shrug, Motel Beds) will be on the show playing some live music during the second hour of YTAA.  While Tod has been a guest on the show before we have not had the pleasure of having him play some songs for us from the performance studio.  The new Shrug album ‘Age of Ashes’ is a brilliant record and we are very excited about having Tod in the performance studio to play and talk about his music and upcoming shows with us.

If that was not enough musical goodness… around 6pm we are going to have Charlie Jackson in the performance space to play and chat.  We have been playing some of his songs for a while and they are terrific!  If you are not up on Charlie’s great songs… well, that one’s on you because we have been playing them on YTAA.Charlie Jackson

So, you have no excuses!  None.  Zip on the rationalizations.  Join us tomorrow for an expanded edition of Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative from 3-8pm for some terrific new music and live performances from Tod Weidner and Charlie Jackson.  That happy feeling that you have right now is because you are excited about this show.  See you tomorrow beginning at 3pm on wudr.udayton.edu or 99.5 and 98.1fm in Dayton!

Sometimes being a real Dr. can be cool

ImageThe coolest part of the UD Self, Community, and Society in the 21st Century Living and Learning Community this year…

From discussions on religion and social media, the C21 LLC turned our attention to entertainment, music, identity, and techniques of the use of social media in our community. On Tuesday, October 29th from 6:30-8:30pm the members of C21 met with local Dayton musicians in the Science Center Auditorium. What is Dayton music like? How do local musicians share information about their music, concerts, and other events? We learned that the independent music scene in the Miami valley is not only incredibly diverse and active but that they use social media and traditional media to share information with the larger community.

Speakers included:
Burris Dixon, Me & Mountains, Swim Diver
Tom Gilliam, The Rebel Set, TCB Hit Squad
Andy Ingram, Kris N., Poptek Records
M. Ross Perkins, Goodbye, Esther Caulfield Orchestra
Liz Rasmussen, Good English
Tifani Tanaka, Dear Fawn
Tod Weidner, Motel Beds, Shrug
