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.

Harold Hensley on YTAA

40639400_10217658440075537_8366559411723829248_nWhat a show! Harold Hensley – The Golden Voice of Dayton Root’s Music — was our guest this past Tuesday on YTAA to talk about his forthcoming record from Magnaphone Records, Midnight Savings Time! This record is simply fantastic and we highly recommend it!

You can see Harold and hear the new record at the release party at the Yellow Cab Tavern on Friday, September 28th! $10 gets you into the party! Doors open at 7pm and the music festivities begin promptly at 8pm! See you all there music lovers!

Human Cannonball

If you have never seen Human Cannonball, then we feel sad for you. We have seen them many times and have never been disappointed. Great melodies, terrific rhythm, great arrangements all around and an energy that if it could be systematically gathered, would defeat any energy crisis. They played the Yellow Cab Tavern on Saturday with Smug Brothers and Swearing at Motorists. It was a good show.

Many Thanks to The Professors

The ProfessorsThis past week we had such fine guests as The Professors visited the YTAA Studios! They have a show on June 23rd at The Yellow Cab Tavern with The Zygotes and Cherry Lee and the Hot Rod Hounds! We played music from their most recent CD, ‘Will Not Lie Down’, talked about Dayton Music and their approach to recording the perfect garage guitar tone! Such fun guests – as you can see here! Follow their Instagram!

OldNews

OldnewsOne of our favorite bands, OldNews, played the Yellow Cab Tavern last weekend with The Neverly Brothers and Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle! Not only was it a great evening of terrific music but OldNews introduced the crowd to many of their latest songs that are featured on their forthcoming record, Silver Linings. Dr. J was super excited to hear new interpretations of songs like ‘Ring’ and the OldNews classic (and fave) ‘Poor Alexander.’

Keep your eyes peeled and ears open for when the new record comes out because you will want it.  You can check out their music on their ReverbNation page!
