Thursday, September 12, 2019 - Sorry, No YouTube Live
Yesterday I wrote that I was planning on doing a YouTube live performance tonight. Turns out I need to look into it a little further. When I tried to set up a YouTube live stream on my phone, I was informed that I don't have enough subscribers. I know there are alternative ways of YouTube streaming. I'll have to look into it further.
As for now, I think I'll stick to Instagram on Sundays and Facebook on Tuesdays, both evenings at 9:15 eastern time. See you Sunday!
Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - We're Live on the Internets!
I said in the last NewsBlog entry that I had just done my first Instagram Live broadcast. I did another one (played "Beautiful Soul" and "Last Round" from Roses for Sharon) on Sunday, September 8th and enjoyed it. Last night I did one on Facebook (played "Opera Alley" and "Hollywood's Dreams" from Opera Alley ). I'm thinking of doing a YouTube Live tomorrow night. Kinda tour the different spots on the internet where people watch video. Two songs, short and sweet. I'm thinking of calling it the Saturday's Radio Double Scoop or some such. I'll check in after the YouTube Live broadcast and let you know how it went and where I want to take this.

Monday, September 2, 2019 - Video from The Bridge, Charlottesville & Instagram Live!
Last Wednesday I drove on down to Charlottesville, met up with my pal Ben Siegan, and we headed to the monthly Bridge open mic series. Ben read a "new" (to me) story, we listened to several wonderful storytellers, poets, musicians, and had a great night. I played "When She Flies" from our Roses for Sharon record, followed by "A Perfect Afternoon" from The Truth Hurts. Below is video. Thanks, Patsy, for putting on a great series, and Tom Haynes for shooting the video.
In other news, last night I did my very first Instagram Live broadcast, straight from my front room. Viewers saw and heard "September Knows" and "You Never Knew". I'm hoping to make this a weekly happening, Sundays at 9:15 pm eastern time. Next time I think I'll send out a social media post letting folks know it's happening. So you're strongly encouraged to follow Saturday's Radio on the Instagram. Hope to see you there!

I just got back from a fabulous road trip to Nashville and Muscle Shoals. Hopefully you're following Saturday's Radio on Facebook and Instagram and have already seen the photos I posted. You can read a bit more about the trip on our NewsBlog.
