Hard to believe it is here so quickly, but this week’s show is the first of the new fall season. In this first show, we are introducing a new segment to the program. Each week we will try to offer a bit of information concerning the business side of the music industry in and around the Philly music scene.
In this premiere segment, Bill & Dr. Lou discuss their experience while attending a meeting of the Philadelphia Recording Community (PRC). That interview will be continued on the September 8 show.
This week we’re featuring songs taped 2 weeks ago at Dr. Lou’s from Glenn Basham and RT Funk Band. That was a fun night! Then from a taping at Hebe Music a few days later, John Cantamessa brought along The Main Street Band and what a great performance! The same night we enjoyed Dave Weber with Donna Delany. They sound fantastic together! A thoroughly entertaining evening!
Next week, along with our new interview segment, each act is coming to us from a different venue. On a beautiful August evening we caught The Trump Boyz at Hawk Island Marina in Delanco, NJ. Then on to Dr. Lou’s Place and a new song from Dr. Lou. In their premiere appearance on IMT, The Parachuting Apostles are performing at The World Cafe. And how wonderful to have as our special guests this week, Danny & the Juniors! We were lucky to catch them at a fundraiser a few years ago at The Coastline. Thank you to Joe Terry for permission to air their performance from that evening, sounding fantastic as always!
Speaking of fundraisers, don’t forget the special fundraiser IMT will be covering on October 15. This event is for Paul Kurrey, to support him in his battle with throat cancer. We want to help him beat this “worst of all cancers that could affect a singer.” Not only is he ill, but this form of cancer also threatens his livelihood. Save the date, October 15, and come on out to the Legendary Dobbs, South Street, Philly, for an unprecedented 4PM opening. Stay until 6:30 for Happy Hour and acoustic performances. After that, even I don’t know as yet who is in the line-up. But I’m sure they’ll be lots of surprises during this very special evening for a very special artist. We will definitely keep you informed as we find out more each week!
I think this is all the IMT news to date. Don’t forget to watch us on WMCN, and tell a friend! And if you like our show, why not thank our sponsors by supporting their businesses? Click here to see our full list of sponsors who play a huge role in keeping local original music on TV!
