MONDAY, 11/22/99

The Radio Woodstock On Stage concert series continues this week as

TWEC.COM broadcasts a taped concert with talented contemporary folk
singer/songwriter Jewel, recorded live at The Tinker Street Cafe in
1995! The concert will air at the following times: Monday 11/22 at
4:00 PM EST, Wednesday 11/23 at 11:00 AM EST, Saturday 11/27 at 3:00 AM

At 9:00 PM EST, join TWEC.COM and chat with hip-hop star Nas! The
rapper’s new album, Nastradamus, is set for release on Tuesday.
Illmatic, Nas’ 1994 debut, attracted instant attention because of the
picture that Nas painted of ghetto life and his refusal to include the
misogyny and violence found in standard gangsta-rap. His following
albums, It Was Written and I Am … The Autobiography, added to the
rise of this talented rapper.

At 10:00 PM EST, The Web’s Entertainment Center is excited to host a
live chat with alt-rock superstar Beck! Beck’s 1994 debut album Mellow
Gold established the singer as one of the most unique and eclectic
performers of the 90s. His new album, Midnight Vultures, hits stores
on Tuesday. As an added bonus, TWEC.COM will air a special radio
broadcast in conjunction with Radio Woodstock, featuring all Beck
music!

The night concludes at 11:00 PM EST when TWEC.COM hosts a live chat
with Akinyele! The latest album from Akinyele, Soundtrack, will be
released on Tuesday 11/23. The album, described as “inventive,
entertaining, and at times hysterical,” was given four out of five mics
from Source magazine.

TUESDAY 11/23/99

At 10:00 PM EST on Tuesday, TWEC.COM and Atlantic Records will
rebroadcast a video fancast with Jewel! Recognized worldwide for her

the Rolling Stones) in rock history.

FRIDAY 11/26/99

At 7:00 PM EST, TWEC.COM is very excited to host an exclusive live chat
