Monday, July 30, 2018 - "Song for Sophie" was Reverb Raccoon's "Song of the Day"

A couple of weeks ago, while I was in Nashville, our "Song for Sophie" was named Reverb Raccoon's (a very cool music review blog) "Song of the Day." You can check it out on our Ghosts reviews page

As I mentioned (or whined about) in the last entry, I'm an elementary teacher in my other life. As I type I'm watching my summer break quickly wind down. But I had a great summer - two trips to Nashville, including helping out at the Tape Op magazine booth at Summer NAMM, seeing a bunch of friends whom I don't get to spend nearly enough time with, and a trip to Chapel Hill, NC to see Mitch Easter and Chris Stamey play live.

That's about it for now. See you soon. 

Sunday, July 8, 2018 - It's been too long...

I feel like a recurring theme in my life, and possibly on the NewsBlog, is "who knows where the time goes?" I can't believe I last updated the ol' Saturday's Radio website in January. That's not good. People are going to think I just don't care, which is the total opposite of what I really feel.

Sunday, January 21, 2018 - Ghosts and Current News

Saturday's Radio Ghosts cover 

Our new album Ghosts has been out for a little more than a month and I'm excited to say that the response

has been wonderful. Between CD sales, iTunes downloads, and thousands of Spotify (and other) streams, I'm very happy that people have been so receptive. Several folks have commented about their favorite songs. The cool thing is that people have different favorites, which tells me that it's a strong record. For more information and streaming or ordering links, go to our Ghosts page.

Now, as the artist, I hear the mistakes and faults and I'm looking forward to continuing to write and record new material.

But any new releases are a ways off. Right now we're looking at getting a remastered version of Opera Alley back online as well as releasing a third maxi-single from Ghosts. We've also had some nibbles on getting songs on a couple of soundtracks, which is an exciting prospect. 

I guess what I find most exciting is the possibilities the internet offers for truly independent musicians. For the first three albums we put out, a "release" meant copies to the four or five record stores in the local area and mailing a few copies to zines for possible review. Now a release means the music is available, and being heard, worldwide on a variety of platforms. That's very exciting and very cool. Despite some persistent (and damaging) ugliness, overall the world is a beautiful place filled with wonderful people.
