The RadioWoodstock On Stage series continues this week with a broadcast
of an audio concert starring Angry Salad. The Rhode Island-based
pop/rock band gained a large and devoted following through their
extensive touring and 1995 independent debut album, “The Guinea Pig.”
The concert with Angry Salad airs at the following times: Monday 7/31 at
4:00 PM EDT, Wednesday 8/2 at 11:00 AM EDT, Saturday 8/5 at 3:00 AM EDT
and Sunday 8/6 at 7:00 PM EDT.
At 9:00 PM EDT, join TWEC.COM, in conjunction with SOHH.com, for the
2000 Sizzlin’ Summer live chat series. The series will continue on
Monday with two live events, starting with a live chat with Sticman and
M-1, two talented young rappers who make up the duo Dead Prez. Sticman
and M-1 have created a unique style of hip-hop with their political and
social commentaries, expressed through their work with artists including
the late Big Pun. Dead Prez released their debut solo album, “Let’s Get
Free,” earlier this year.
At 8:00 PM EDT, log on to TWEC.COM for a live chat with Mac McAnally.
McAnally has written songs for such artists as Jimmy Buffett, Alabama
and Steve Wariner. He released his solo debut album in 1977 after
impressing producers Terry Woodford and Clayton Ivey with his vocal
stylings. His most recent solo album, “Word of Mouth,” was released
Following the chat with Mac McAnally, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with
country star Chris LeDoux. After performing for years as a champion
rodeo rider, LeDoux left the rodeo scene in 1980 to focus on a music
career. In 20 years, he recorded 22 albums on independent labels and
garnered a very large and loyal following. His latest album, “Cowboy,”
is set for release on 8/1, and contains re-recorded versions of some of
LeDoux’s older hits.
At 8:00 PM EDT, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with up-and-coming country
crooner Clay Davidson. Davidson’s debut album was released in February
2000, and was described by Entertainment Weekly as “a tender-tough
charmer.” Seven of the eleven songs on the album were written by
Davidson himself, and show touches of influence from such artists as
Merle Haggard, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Don Williams and Elvis Presley.
At 9:00 PM EDT, stick around for a live chat with legendary performer
Charlie Daniels. Daniels and his band combine hardcore country music
with southern rock and blues, creating a unique sound that has appealed
to both critics and fans over the years because of their creativity with
music as well as for their good ol’ country boy attitude. The Charlie
Daniels Band’s latest album, “Road Dogs,” was released this spring.
At 7:00 PM EDT, TWEC.COM is hosting a live chat with Taproot. Taproot
combines heavy metal, hard rock and rap into a blend commonly known as
rap-core. Finding their niche in the underground music scene in Ann
Arbor and Detroit (MI), Taproot produced and released their full-length
debut, ” … Something More Than Nothing … ” completely on their own
in the spring of 1998, and sold over 6,000 copies. Their major-label
debut album, “Gift,” was released at the end of June 2000.
At 9:00 PM EDT, chat live with Nine Days. Nine Days was formed in the
mid-90s with one goal in mind: write great songs. Combining 80s rock
with a depth of lyrics comparable to songwriters including Bob Dylan,
Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young, the band has created a sound of their
own. Nine Days’ debut album, “The Maddening Crowd,” was released in May
