MUSICAL CONVERSATIONS - A PLACE TO TALK MUSIC

Listen Tuesday nights, starting at 9 Eastern. Musical Conversations is a conversational radio show, centering on music. Quite often there are guests, whether they be in house or phone interviews, they're talking music. From local and regional bands from around the Charlotte, North Carolina area, to national and international musicians, promoters, managers and those of influence in the music industry, all are welcome on Musical Conversations and at one point have been guests.

Tune in by clicking the player ink at the top of the page, which will pop out so you may continue your web surfing. Join the chat! Also check out the Facebook group and follow MusicalConvos on Twitter.

It’s been a while. I’ve been hoping to get someone with WordPress experience to help me fashion this thing into what my vision of Musical Conversations, as a web page experience, should be. Lacking that, I’m stuck trying to figure out something that is completely alien to me. I never did MySpace well, though I Live Journaled quite nicely I think. Now, in this world of Facebook and what seems to be very little else, I’m trapped trying to get things rolling on this site. So, if you’re reading this and you know Word Press, come on! Help a guy out, okay?

So here’s what’s happening… Musical Conversations continues to be and is doing well. It’s 24/7 with break-ins to go live on at least every Tuesday night at 9pm Eastern, as the show, Musical Conversations. Preferably I’d have guests in and we’d talk music all night long, playing music and having such a wonderful time that when it comes through your speakers, you’re a part of the conversation also. Yeah, it’s like hanging out with your friends that love to talk music… and nothing is out of bounds in that conversation. Since it’s on the internet, it’s interactive, which means you can chat with us. Sure, I’m still working out the kinks of using the audio connection with JK Audio’s “Daptor Two”, which lets me take calls, though I’m also anxious to have someone test it out with me. Please! Help me set that up! In other words, be in touch, okay?

Beyond Musical Conversations on always, and live on Tuesday nights… I do also break in whenever I’m able so I can broadcast… because I can! Wouldn’t you? And why wouldn’t you? And you should be listening. It’s a lot of fun and yes, interactive.

Charlotte, NC is home and so “local” or “regional” music to me is now of course of the Carolinas. There is a tavern called “Pint Central” on Central Avenue. I’m there on Sunday nights, from 8pm Eastern until midnight, playing “Local Sundays” – music of the Carolinas. I’ll also occasionally include an artist that has been on Musical Conversations, though they may not be from the Carolinas – yet that is an infrequent inclusion.

The local free weekly newsprint arts & entertainment/nightlife rag in Charlotte has stopped publishing. I’m looking to revive my short-lived, yet awesome publication, “WTF-CLT???”, which stands for “Where’s The Fun, Charlotte?” – not what you think it stood for, huh? Get your mind out of the gutter. My magazine was a monthly, who knows what’s to come? This new incarnation may be named something else, it may be at a different publishing schedule, it may include an awesome online contingent… again, who knows? When I do, I’ll let you know.

On the more mundane front, embroidery is going well, as is my affiliation with a screen printer. I got my new business cards today and they rock. I think I’ll end with that… check out the image:
