MONDAY 8/7

  • The RadioWoodstock On Stage series continues this week with a broadcast
    of an audio concert starring Del Amitri. The band from Glasgow has
    gained a strong cult following for their rock and roll style with
    tastes of country and folk. The concert with Del Amitri airs at the
    following times: Monday 8/7 at 4:00 PM EDT, Wednesday 8/9 at
    11:00 AM EDT, Saturday 8/12 at 3:00 AM EDT and Sunday 8/13 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 two live events, starting with a live chat
    with rappers Hi Tek and Talib Kweli. As an added bonus, the chat with
    these talented rappers will be broadcast in Real Audio.

TUESDAY 8/8

  • At 5:30 PM EDT, TWEC.COM will host a live chat with music legends Iron
    Maiden. Iron Maiden has long been considered one of the most
    influential heavy metal bands of all time. They’ve been imitated, but
    never duplicated, for over 20 years. Hear Iron Maiden in their own
    voices when you tune into the live Real Audio broadcast.

  • At 9:00 PM EDT, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with Doro Pesch. Often
    called the “first lady of metal rock,” Pesch is a German heavy metal
    rocker who served as the frontwoman for such bands as Snakebite and
    Warlock. Warlock opened for Megadeth on their successful 1988 American
    tour. Doro Pesch’s latest solo album, “Calling the Wild,” is scheduled
    to hit stores on 11/9.

  • At 10:30 PM EDT, log on to TWEC.COM for a live chat with Rob Halford.
    The former Judas Priest frontman has a new band, simply called Halford,
    and a new album set for release on 8/7 entitled “Resurrection.” Ask
    Rob all about his new band, their new album and more when you join us
    at 10:30 PM EDT on Tuesday 8/8. As an added bonus, the chat will be
    broadcast live in Real Audio.

WEDNESDAY 8/9

  • At 8:00 PM EDT, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with up-and-coming
    country crooner Eric Heatherly. Heatherly’s debut album, “Swimming in
    Champagne,” was released in April 2000. The album is a perfect
    cross-section of the music that this talented young performer creates,
    combining his twangs and honky-tonks with a tough but tender voice.

  • At 9:00 PM EDT, stick around for a live chat with Jo Dee Messina. With
    her 1996 self-titled debut, Joe Dee established herself as one of the
    most talented new country singers in the music business. Messina’s
    latest album, “Burn,” hit stores on 8/1.
