MONDAY 11/13

  • The RadioWoodstock On Stage series continues this week with an audio
    broadcast starring Sixpence None the Richer. The band, together since

  • At 9:00 PM EST, TWEC.COM will chat live with Offspring. The punk band,
    formed in 1983 when its members were still in high school, found itself
    in the spotlight after releasing 1998’s “Americana,” fueled by its
    singles “Pretty Fly” and “Why Don’t You Get a Job?” Offspring’s new
    album, “Original Prankster,” hits stores on Tuesday 11/14.

TUESDAY 11/14

  • At 8:00 PM EST, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with Fisher, the first
    true Internet success story. Over the last year, the duo’s songs have
    been streamed and downloaded from sites across the Internet nearly
    2,000,000 times. They are the first band to be signed to a major label
    because of Internet success. Their debut album, “True North,” is set
    for release on Tuesday 11/14.

  • Following the chat with Fisher, join TWEC.COM for a live chat with
    Poison frontman Bret Michaels. Poison is one of the most popular rock
    bands of the 80s, with songs including “Talk Dirty To Me,” “Unskinny
    Bop,” “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” and “Nothin’ But a Good Time”
    remaining favorites today. Poison recently came off of a blockbuster
