My next stint on the AM/FM Show will be Saturday, December 27 at 6:00
am. I will continue the special on Sequences Electronic Music
Magazine's sampler CDs.

Tune in to WMUH Allentown at 91.7 FM, broadcasting from the campus of
Muhlenberg College. I alternate hosting the show with Bruce. When I
am at the helm, the show features electronic, ambient, and spacemusic

The acoustic power duo RED consists of Karl Eisenhart (guitar and
vocals from Pinnacle) and Chris Michels (violin, mandolin, and vocals).

Since they play at Bear Creek every friday and STILL can't get enough
of it, they decided it would be good fun to play there New Years Eve.
Apparently, the kind folks at Bear Creek thought that, too, because
it's happening from 8:30 pm to 12:30 am. Last NYE at Bear Creek was a
really great evening even though RED weren't there. So that means that
this year could be UP TO FIVE TIMES AS GOOD.

RED will also be back at the Krumsville Inn on January 3rd from 10:00
pm to 1:00 am, and, of course, at Bear Creek every Friday until the end
of time.

On December 28 at 7:30 pm, Warchild, a Jethro Tull Tribute band, will
play at the Sellersville theater.

Serving to satisfy your Tull cravings, New York's Warchild captures
the excitement of The Whistler's live performances in an exciting,
theatrical presentation with costumes, lights and faithful renditions
of their music; expect to hear many classics including selections from
Aqualung, A Passion Play & Living in the Past. Ian Anderson's
compositions rank amongst the greatest songs of the past 40 years by
combining blues, folk, jazz, Celtic & classical influences into
innovative progressive rock.

On NYE, listen here:

Announcement at says:

We did it in 2006 and 2008 (I think we missed 2007) so why not do it
again? Lets have an online international New Year's
Eve party and electro-jam. Almost all cultures celebrate the January 1st
New Year so this is sure not to offend too many people.

A floating concert is like a floating crap game, it moves around from
location to location.

We will set up our shoutcast server to run all day Dec 31 through Jan 1.
We'd like people in their studios to set up live streaming of
performances, jam sessions, or any kind of musical expression for
streaming. The members and lurkers can tune in and
share the experience. Bill's band Xeroid Entity will be streaming live
from Allentown.
