Tomorrow: Pitch Music Experts Completely Take Over All Local Airwaves
Well, maybe not all. Maybe just those emanating from local stations KKFI 90.1 and KCUR 89.3 during certain hours of the morning, but, hey, we’re still excited.
First, set your alarm for 7 a.m. sharp and tune it to 90.1 KKFI community radio (make sure you flip the switch on your clock so that the radio comes on instead of the buzzer, though) and turn the volume all the way up: Pitch clubs editor and music gemologist Berry Anderson will pay a visit to host Bill O’Connor‘s Your Morning Buzz show to play musical selections by nominees up for trophies in our annual Pitch Music Awards. In addition to playing all that great local music, Berry will no doubt dispense important advice on how to survive the night’s Pitch Music Showcase, raging in Westport from 8 p.m. until the bars close. Thanks for having us, Bill!
Next, don’t leave your home — don’t even get out of bed — but do touch that dial. Because starting at 10 a.m. on 89.3 KCUR public radio, on the famous Walt Bodine Show, yours truly, I, Jason Harper, music astrologist-to-the-stars, will be a featured guest. I won’t be talking about the showcase, though, unless they allow me a shameless plug.
Instead, I’ve been given the honor of getting to talk to and with listeners about Bob Moczydlowsky‘s killer rock documentary 72 Musicians, which was shot over three days at the Record Bar. Also on the mic will be the man himself, Mr. Moczydlowsky, plus local rocker Billy Smith of the bands Roman Numerals and Olympic Size, both of which are featured in the movie (anonymously). I don’t know that I’ve ever heard of Walt Bodine featuring local music so prominently for a whole hour, so please listen in and pick up the phone (but don’t get out of bed) during the call-in portion. It’s gonna be fun. Thanks for having us, Walt! We won’t let you down.
