On Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative this week we have planned over an hour of local musicians who have played the YTAA studio over the past several years! Expect live music from Chad & Aarika of Cricketbows, Tod Weidner of Shrug, Tom Gilliam of Ghost Town Silence, Mack McKenzie, Manray, David Payne, OldNews, Charlie Jackson, The Nautical Theme and TEAM VOID! This is part of our celebration of thirteen years of Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative!
Our first show in March represents a look back at all of the amazing musicians who left this mortal coil last year. We are all aware of such luminaries as David Bowie, Merle Haggard, Leonard Cohen, John Berry, Maurice White, George Michael, Paul Kanter, Glenn Frey, Paul Bley, Sir George Martin, Nicholas Caldwell, Red Simpson, Phyfe Dawg, Bernie Worrell, Keith Emerson, Alan Vega, John Thurman Hunter jr, Pete Burns, and Prince who passed away last year far before their time. This show will address many musicians who made a contribution to music but are not the proverbial household names. Our goal is to dig deep and think about the session players, background singers, and talented players who are all too often overlooked.
Unfortunately, we lost several individuals involved in music and at Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative we wanted to spend a few hours remembering and celebrating the many contributors to music that we lost. 2016 was also a tough year on many individuals who contributed indirectly to some amazing music projects such as Robert Balser who was the animation director for The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.
Tom Gilliam of Ghost Town Silence, Daytongram, and an exceptional musician joins Dr. J as we reflect on the musicians who have transitioned and celebrate the music across genres. Tom is a frequent contributor on the show and we welcome his insight into reflecting on those we have lost in 2016.
So, join Dr. J and Tom Gilliam on March 7th as we take time to remember those we lost in 2016.

During our annual holiday show we have often been joined by guests. Today was no exception. Click this link to see a vine that we took of Tom Gilliam at WUDR Studios Today where he played live. We hope to have some video and audio for you soon!
The 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.
