MONDAY 8/28

  • The RadioWoodstock On Stage series continues this week with a broadcast
    of an audio concert starring Stroke 9. The band’s hit single, “Little
    Black Backpack,” taken from their debut album “Nasty Little Thoughts,”
    is an amusing and sardonic look at a failed relationship. The concert
    with Stroke 9 airs at the following times: Monday 8/28 at 4:00 PM EDT,
    Wednesday 8/30 at 11:00 AM EDT, Saturday 9/2 at 3:00 AM EDT and Sunday
    9/3 at 7:00 PM EDT.

  • At 9:00 PM EDT, join TWEC.COM, in conjunction with SOHH.com, for the
    continuation of the 2000 Sizzlin’ Summer Live Chat Series. The series
    will continue on Monday with a live chat with DJ Clue. After creating
    a series of monthly mix tapes after emerging from the NYC hip-hop
    underground, DJ Clue found himself to be a cult phenomenon. His major
    label debut, “The Professional,” was released in 1998.

  • WEDNESDAY 8/30
    At 8:00 PM EDT on Wednesday, log on to TWEC.COM for a live chat with
    country star Mark Wills. Following the release of his self-titled
    debut, Wills found himself with a respectable following from critics
    and fans alike. Wills’ latest album, “Permanently,” was released in
    early 2000.

  • Following the chat with Mark Wills, join TWEC.COM at 9:00 PM EDT for a
    live chat with Southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band was
    formed in 1965 and has long been known for their hard-driving rock
    music, with blues, rock and country overtones. Many of the hit songs
    that Lynyrd Skynyrd has recorded are now considered classics, including
    “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Free Bird,” among others.

THURSDAY 8/31

  • At 9:00 PM EDT, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with Jim Brickman. The
    talented pianist recently released his sixth album in as many years,
    entitled “My Romance.” The album features vocals by such gifted
    performers as Donny Osmond, Anne Cochran and Olivia-Newton John, as
    well as duets with skilled trumpeter Dave Koz.
