Inside Music Today December 29 Show

Hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas season!

On this week’s show, The Union has returned performing a Mike Riley song.  Mike owns Riley General Contracting (one of our sponsors) and has been helping support IMT for awhile now.  Thank you Mike for everything you do for us and the show!  Not only are you a gifted musician & songwriter, but a gifted carpentry artisan as well!

We also have a new song from Volt who we met at Hollystock this past summer.  We’ve had many requests for their return.  So here they are from a show taped just a week or so ago from our sponsor Dr. Lou’s Place.

Continuing this 2nd show from our Christmas trilogy, we’re featuring a Christmas song by Cathy Gulden from Delaware.  Thank you Rob for finding her for us!  And as a special Christmas treat, Blue Heather teams up with Dr. Lou & the Privileged Few for a rockin’ Christmas tune.

Next week we’ll bring you new songs from Nicki Sbaffoni and Kenn Kweder.  Then we’ll wrap up the Christmas trilogy with a couple of songs featuring Louise Mandrell.  Louise is the middle of the three Mandrell Sisters.  We were requested to tape the Rowan University Winter Concert, at which Louise was the special guest.  She is a wonderful entertainer and we are so very happy we were given permission to share part of her evening’s performance with you all.  Thank you Dr. Pastin, Rowan University and all the musicians and singers that made the concert such a wonderful experience that evening.

Well, enjoy the shows we’ve worked so hard to bring to you. And we couldn’t do it without the support of our wonderful sponsors–so make sure you thank them for keeping original music on TV in the Delaware Valley!

All of us at IMT wish everyone a wonderful, prosperous & Happy New Year!

December 22 Show: Inside Music Today

This week’s show reflects the Christmas season with performances by The Pine Barons Chorus and Bill’s past singing group, Been There Done That.

Blue Heather brings the Latin Christmas celebration to us performing with the trio Tieno, bringing together family & friends.  Artisan has a song with a reminder to be careful not to drink & drive this holiday season.  Dr. Lou & the Privileged Few perform at The Legendary Dobbs and we catch the interview with them from that evening.

If you missed the show or just want to see it again, check it out on YouTube!

Next week we have a song written by Mike Riley and performed by The Union on Dr. Lou‘s stage. The band Volt, who we recorded back in July at Hollystock, came out to Dr. Lou’s just last night.  One of the two songs recorded will be on this show.  Bill has been looking forward to more music from them since he edited their performance back in August.  Thanks guys for coming to Dr. Lou‘s and being a part of one of our holiday shows!

And as a special holiday treat, Blue Heather and Dr. Lou and The Privileged Few perform together.  This happy Christmas song is quite fun and entertaining!

Our December 15 show featured the talents of Mike Rocket and Nicki Sbaffoni from The Legendary Dobbs stage.  We have a song written by Sharis performed by The Union.  From that same evening of “Thanks” from Dr. Lou’s stage we have newcomer Frank Porter and the acapella talents of Blue Heather singing for our military at this time of the year when they all wish they could be here.  Thank you to all who serve to keep us safe.

It has been a wonderful year bringing all these artists and their original music to all of you.  I look back on this year and realize IMT has presented about 260 new original songs to our viewers.  We wish to thank each and every artist that has been a part of Inside Music Today.  We appreciate your performances and being a part of our IMT family.  We are so blessed to live in an area with such a multitude of talented musicians, singers and songwriters.

Artists please remember, IMT is planning many new experiences for the New Year.

Keep in touch if you would like to be included in all the new and exciting projects ahead.  We’re ready for a fun and prosperous New Year!

We wish everyone, artists and fans alike, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year!  And I don’t want to forget our sponsors!  Thank you for keeping us on the air so all can enjoy our wonderful performers!

And I must not forget our fantastic crew!  We cannot put out this show without your talents!  Thank you Rob, Barb & Ro. Bill and I depend on you all much more than you realize.  Thank you for always being there for us.  And welcome to our new intern Mackenzie!  You’ve only been with us a short time, but you fit with us all so perfectly.  Hope you return on spring break or for the summer!

Thanks for all who watch IMT.  We try our best to bring you new original music each week and are looking forward to this new exciting year ahead.

Here’s to many new and wonderful experiences in 2013!

Inside Music Today December 1 show

Our show for this week features some old friends, along with some new performers to celebrate Inside Music Today’s first year anniversary broadcasting on WMCN!  Bill & Rob headed on down to Dr. Lou’s Place on November 20th, for a special taping of The Union.  They were on our first WMCN broadcast, known then as Union Dues.  Now they have so many more new songs, plus a new name, we had to capture this new sound to celebrate and give thanks for IMT making it to this special anniversary!

To help us celebrate, Blue Heather was in attendance, along with a new performer for IMT,  Larry Saklad. I was unable to attend that taping, so I am looking forward to hearing a new performer who was there to be a part of our evening of thanks.

Rounding out the show, we’re happy to bring the Nightspell 13 video that has just been completed to coincide with the release of the CD, Carnival of Nights, which is available now on CD Baby and theorchard.com. Watch the whole show on YouTube!

The December 8 show will feature more acts from the “Give Thanks” celebration at Dr. Lou’s Place.  Performing will be Angel Casiano, who hosts the Tuesday “Open Mic” at Dr. Lou’s each week, along with more newcomers to IMT, John Monzo and Jeff LeVine.  Then we have one more song from Blue Heather.

Our next Inside Music Today taping at Dr. Lou’s Place will be on Thursday, December 6.

Inside Music Today Late October-November 3

I hope everyone got through the storm okay.  We’re behind again, this time due to the storm.  We were lucky to only be out of power for 24 hours.  But that was just long enough to put things behind schedule.  But I am so glad we came through okay and we were able to get another show for you.

We are continuing to bring artist performances from the Paul Kurrey fundraiser.  This week we have acoustic acts Jack McTamney, Terence Donnelly and Nicki Sbaffoni.  Dr. Lou & the Privileged Few are on board with a Paul Kurrey song.  Paul, I know you’re up in New York and can’t watch tonight, but next week I hope you’ll be watching on You Tube.  This  is Dr. Lou doing this for you!

We have a few more shows in the next few weeks featuring artists from the fundraiser.  After those shows run, we will be featuring some concept videos being taped at this time from Nightspell 13.  Our producer Bill has worked with Jimi Chanti recording keyboard tracks for this and past Nightspell CD’s.  This new CD, Carnival of Nights, will be on CD Baby and theorchard.com.  Looking forward to presenting these videos to our viewers.

Also, thanks Jimi for the great CD release party!  Always fun to party after all the work is done!

Again, hope everyone is okay after the storm and hope you can tune in to tonight’s show.

Our October 20 show featured music by Blue Heather, Mighty Parrot, October Baby with Lisa Bouchelle, the Good Medicine Band with David Weber, and Wendy Betz & the Riseing! Watch it NOW on YouTube!

Inside Music Today September 22 Show

Happy first day of autumn!  This week’s show is a wonderful line-up of talent from years gone by, but the performances are still as remarkable as those years ago.  Please enjoy these songs from the past, performed by these noteworthy artists.  While these performers were making it big, Bill and Blue Heather were learning their craft from listening to their great harmonies. So in addition to this fabulous list of entertainers, Blue Heather will be featured singing the song they recorded with SalSoul Orchestra years back.  Thank you to Billy & The Essentials, Danny & The Juniors,  The Dreamlovers, The Tymes, The Orlons and The Bluenotes for being a part of IMT and the inspiration to those who followed.

Next week the Trump Boyz are back along with Dr. Lou and RT Funk Band.  Due to some requests, we are bringing you encore performances from Nytrous and Volt.  These bands have lots of fans that want MORE!  Since they have not returned with new material as of this moment, here is what we have.  Fans, let them know they need to return to IMT!

Next week we have an All Star show.  We have so many oldies and so little time, that we’re saving our interview segment for an upcoming show.  What a line-up of professional talent.  Billy & the Essentials,  Danny & The Juniors, The Dreamlovers,  The Tymes, The Orlons, The Bluenotes plus Blue Heather performing the song they recorded at Sigma Sound Studios with the SalSoul Orchestra.  I hope everyone tunes in to this special program.  Bill is proud to be on this program with all these fantastic performers, since listening to them contributed to his singing talent today.

Inside Music Today: August 25 Show

We decided to wrap up this exciting summer with a little from each of the events we covered the last three months.  Our August 25 show begins with Blue Heather and Dan Casper from our Anniversary Concert in June.  Moving on to July 4th, one more song from Tommy Conwell, with back-up by Throddle. It was the hottest day of the summer, but a nice evening of entertainment after the storm.  Then we’re back to the rains of Hollystock, with one more song from Volt and the final song we were able to record that day from The Late Ancients.  All these events happened right here in Burlington County.  Pretty cool!  Watch our August 25 show now on Youtube!

September 1st begins our new fall season and adds a new interview segment to the show.  We are trying our best to bring information about the Philadelphia music business to our artists.  In the debut interview, Bill and Dr. Lou discuss their experience at a meeting of the Philadelphia Recording Community.

Following the interview, we’re featuring Glenn Basham and RT Funk Band, recorded at Dr. Lou’s Place just a week ago.  Last Sunday we were at Hebe Music, where we caught John Cantamessa, this time with The Main Street Band.  What a great, tight sound!

After a “long time, no see,” we got to see our old friend Dave Weber again.  He came down to Hebe‘s to record with Donna Delany.  He’s better than ever, especially in this performance with Donna.  Dave, so wonderful to see you again!

Remember, IMT wouldn’t happen if it weren’t for our generous sponsors. Click here to see our full list of sponsors and please patronize them to thank them for their support of local original music!

Inside Music Today August 18 Show

This week we should finally be able to view the performances from Hollystock!  I’m looking forward to seeing Volt and Liquid Island.  I missed their performances that day.

I was taping The Genies at the Blue Light Studio stage, while Rob was taping Volt and Liquid Island at the Hebe Music stage.  You see, I’m not in on the editing like Bill and Rob are.  So I have to wait until broadcast!  I just realized, I also missed out on Escape Plan.  I am also looking forward to seeing them for the first time!  How nice will it be to enjoy The Genies‘ performance in a quiet, dry environment, without standing in water to my ankles.  As you can detect, I’m really going to embrace this show!

See our August 18 show on YouTube!

Next week will be a wrap up of summer, featuring Blue Heather and Dan Casper from our anniversary concert, another song from Tommy Conwell at the Florence 4th of July celebration, plus Volt and The Late Ancients from the Hebe Music stage at Hollystock.

In taping The Late Ancients, again I’ll ask for your understanding as I did for The Genies footage. I was trying my best to shoot without a tripod, while Rob and Doug were using paper cups to catch the water coming through the tent down on my head.

Definitely a day that will never be forgotten!

I do hope you all enjoy the music we worked so very hard to bring to you.  It’s been quite a summer of new, different and interesting venues and so much new music!  This has got to be one of the best jobs in the world!

Tune in on August 18 at MIDNIGHT for original Hollystock performances by Volt, Liquid Island, The Genies and Escape Plan!

Our August 25 MIDNIGHT show will feature Sounds of Summer 2012 with tunes by Blue Heather, Tommy Conwell, Volt, Dan Casper and The Late Ancients, all taped at events this summer!
