Tonight at 11 pm on Galactic Travels, I'll continue the month-long Special Focus

Records. The Vinyl Starter will come from the LP "Heaven and Hell" by Vangelis

and Phillipsburg, 93.7 FM in Fogelsville and Trexlertown, 92.9 FM on Service

The next Pulse gig is scheduled for Saturday, July 22, starting 9:00 pm at the
Alburtis Rod and Gun Club.

Pulse returns to Banana Joe's for WZZO Bike Night at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, August

Former members of ShadowPlay, Strange Brew and the Critters have combined their
talents to form this high caliber Classic Rock band which features great dance
material as well as great listening music (ear candy!) by groups such as Steely
Dan, Santana, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Jethro Tull, Blues Brothers,
Beatles, and other top shelf groups. The group includes Greg Van
Allen (guitars and vocals), Rod Gilkeson (vocals), Bob Ashmore (Keyboards), Bill
Fox (bass and vocals), and Billy Fenstermacher (drums and vocals).

Wednesday, July 23, I will fill on a Late Night slot at WDIY. From 11:04 pm to
1:00 am, I will spin the best in contemporary Progressive Rock. If Afterglow
and The AM/FM Show are too early in the day for you to listen to prog, then
perhaps this program will suit your schedule better.


Thursday, July 27th from 6 to 8 pm, Malarky will play an outdoor concert at
Upper Saucon Township Park on Preston Lane in Upper Saucon Township, east of
Route 378.

You can hear Malarky in Celtic action at your private party. Contact Patti

be at Brenda & Jerry's Music and Entertainment Center located on Airport Road,
north of the airport in Bath, PA. The doors open at 6:00 pm and the show starts

Initial reactions to Meld, our new CD, is overwhelmingly great! We think you're
in for a real treat when you buy the CD! Order now because THEY'RE HERE!!!

WLVR, WDIY/WXLV, and WMUH are already playing tracks from Meld as well as many
internet radio stations!!!!!

The CD was mastered at Star City Recording by Carl Cadden James (of InsideOut
recording group Shadow Gallery) under the supervision of legendary producer Jeff
Glixman (Kansas, Yngwie Malmsteen). The cover art was done by Martin Kornick
who has done covers for Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Transatlantic, and the mighty
Spock's Beard.

While you're web surfing, check out the Pinnacle web site at the NEW address: You can order Meld there right now! You can also buy
the CD (and our forst one, too) at CD Baby.

Our first CD of five original tunes and one extra bonus surprise is available
there and at CD Baby! Check it out at . You can
also see any member of the band to buy your very own copy of our first release
called "A Man's Reach..." We had fun putting it together and still love the
results. You can read the CD's first public review at the ProgGnosis web site:

Our next public appearance will be on Thursday, August 24, at the Plaza in
Center City Allentown, in front of the PP&L building. All details, maps, and
driving directions are available at the website.

Emerald City plays Celtic music, cross pollinated by an eclectic mix of music.
Just take folk, rock, world, country, film, and classical music and put it all
into an Irish Cuisinart set to frappé. THAT'S Emerald City!
