MONDAY 9/4

  • The RadioWoodstock On Stage series continues this week with a broadcast
    of an audio concert starring quirky roots rock quartet Marah. The
    concert with Marah, who have been described as a cross between the
    Replacements and Springsteen, 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.

WEDNESDAY 9/6

  • At 7:00 PM EDT on Wednesday, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with rising
    young singing star Billy Gilman. Gilman is a twelve-year-old country
    prodigy who recently released his debut album, “One Voice.” The title
    track has given Gilman the distinction of being the youngest artist ever
    to have a song on Billboard Magazine’s Country Singles Chart.

  • Following the chat with Billy Gilman, join TWEC.COM at 8:00 PM EDT for a
    live chat with Ricochet. The sextet emerged on the scene with their
    debut album in 1996 and spent much of the year in the Top 40 of the
    country charts, establishing themselves as one of the hottest new
    country groups on the music scene. Ricochet’s latest album, “What You
    Leave Behind,” hits stores on 9/12.

  • Join TWEC.COM at 9:00 PM EDT for a live chat with sensational rappers
    the Wu-Tang Clan and System of a Down. The Wu-Tang Clan is one of the
    most influential rap families in hip-hop today, with artists like Method
    Man, Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Raekwon among its ranks. Joining the Wu-Tang
    Clan for the chat will be System of a Down, a late-90s metal band that
    has perfectly combined the sounds of 80s underground metal with the
    sounds of the alternative rockers of the early-90s.
