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!

Just a reminder.  October 15, The Legendary Dobbs, The Philadelphia Music Scene ROCKS for Paul Kurrey.   Check it out and I’m sure you will want to be a part of this awesome evening with some amazing bands!

Thanks for watching IMT and enjoy your weekend! Don’t miss a chance to support our wonderful sponsors who play such a big role in keeping local original music on TV!

I hope everyone is enjoying our new interview segment.  This week we finish up the chat with Dr. Lou.  Then we have 2nd songs from Glenn Basham, John Cantamessa & the Main Street Band, Dave Weber with Donna Delany and Dr. Lou!

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.

As always, HUGE thanks to our sponsors who keep our show on the air! Make sure to patronize their businesses and thank them for their commitment to local original music.

Inside Music Today September 8 Show

It may still feel like summer, but autumn events are starting to come together.  Beginning with IMT‘s new fall format and continuing with preparations for the October 15th fundraiser for Paul Kurrey, it’s just an exciting feeling of making things happen.

First our September 8 show will continue the Bill & Dr. Lou interview we premiered last week, with more info about the Philly & Delaware Valley music scene.  Then all the acts this week are taped at different venues, with the Trump Boyz from the Hawk Island Marina in Delanco, NJ. and Dr. Lou from Dr. Lou’s Place.  The Parachuting Apostles are coming to us from The World Cafe and Danny & the Juniors from The Coastline.  Definitely an array of talent from interesting venues.

On to the September 15 show.  The interview segment with Bill & Dr. Lou has more updates and insights on the Delaware Valley music scene.  We have 2nd songs from Glenn Basham, John Cantamessa & The Main Street Band, Dave Weber with Donna Delany and Dr. Lou.

I am happy to report we have the line-up for the upcoming fundraiser.  Below are the artists that have graciously volunteered their time to make this a special evening for Paul.  The official name of the event is:

The Philadelphia Music Scene ROCKS for Paul Kurrey       

Monday, October 15     4:00pm to 1:00am
Dobb’s,  South Street,  Philadelphia

We’ll be listing all the featured bands and linking to bands’ websites soon, so watch this post for more info about this concert–and don’t forget to save the date to see it LIVE!

As you can see, this will be quite a night of entertainment!  And as I said last week,  IMT will be there taping for future shows.  So I’m sure everyone will want to be a part of this historic evening!

Come on out, have a good time while supporting our friend and fellow musician in his time of need.

I want to thank everyone who watches and supports our show and our sponsors.  We so appreciate all everyone does for us so we can continue to spotlight the talent of our fellow area musicians and singers.

Inside Music Today September 1 Show

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!

Have a great Labor Day weekend and enjoy this unofficial end of summer!
