talking about local music on Clear 101.7 FM today, Thursday and Friday

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

I totally forgot to mention this Monday and Tuesday (I blame the peppermint bark haze I was living in at the time) but Dori Donoho — host of the excellent Homegrown music show on Clear 101.7 FM and all-around awesome supporter of local music — was nice enough to have me as a guest for her daily Homegrown Hits segment this week to talk about the year in music in Central Oregon.

On Monday and Tuesday, we played songs by Laura Curtis and Mike Potter, respectively, and chatted a bit about each of those artists. Today, we’ll feature Cadence. Tomorrow it’s Tuck and Roll, and Friday is Larry and His Flask. All of these artists and songs are available for free and legal download on The Bulletin’s Near/Far compilation of 2011’s best tunes.

Anyway, the segment airs around 10:30 a.m. (that’s soon for you Cadence fans!) but you should go ahead and tune in earlier and listen to Dori’s whole show, because it’s cool and she’s cool and you’re cool, too … right?

On the radio tonight …

Frequency fans! Here’s a chance to experience the glory of this blog in another medium: radio!

Tonight at 8 p.m., I’ll be on Dori Donoho’s Homegrown Music Showcase on Clear 101.7 FM in Bend to chat about the local music scene in 2010 and The Bulletin’s Near/Far downloads project. Plus, we’ll spin some tunes by local artists.

So again: 8 p.m.! Tonight! 101.7 FM on your radio dial! Be there.

Win “Last Band Standing” battle of the bands, take home $30,000 in prizes

Monday, April 5th, 2010

(Does your company make tasty chocolate milk? If so, please contact Frequency today about sponsorship opportunities.)

I know what you’re thinking: Your band is awesome, ready to tour the world and play your songs for people in towns not called “Bend,” “Redmond” and “Sisters.” The only thing holding you back from total world domination is your lack of wheels. Or, at least, wheels that’ll hold you and your handful of hygienically challenged band mates, plus all your gear and fast-food bags.

Never fear! “Last Band Standing” is here! Local radio station Clear 101.7 FM is staging a battle of the bands at Boondocks Bar and Grill in Bend, and the first-place prize is an eye-catcher: $30,000 worth of stuff, including a 15-passenger van, a record contract and a guitar. There are prizes for second, third and fourth place, too, but they aren’t a van.

The contest gets going on April 22, and deadline for entry is April 11, which is soon, slacker. Details and the entry form are here. (Here’s info on MySpace and Facebook, for those of you so inclined.)

Winners will be determined by a vote of the Boondocks audience each night and will go on to unparalleled fame and fortune, or at least to learn a few things about band-van maintenance.
