Live from SugarHill Studios
My friends Gina and Dan from SugarHill Studios were kind enough to ask that I be the permanent interviewer/announcer for their flegdling pod/videocast called Live From SugarHill. It happens live (naturally) the first Thursday of the month at 7pm Texas time. You can join the stream at www.ecslive.com - or -if you're really a glutton for punishment, you can view the video on Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/2732034 OR you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Or you can punch in http://www.sugarhillstudios.com/ for all these details and more.
Tune in and watch catch my face-for-radio look as I interview artists I've mostly never heard of and try my best to sound like I know what a microphone is. Think an impish Terry Gross crossed with a daffier-still Martha Quinn and then you'll go "OOOOOhh...right, gotcha..."
Here's the press release muh-jig:
" SugarHill Recording Studios invites you into its legendary Studio A with it's newest radio venture, Live from SugarHill. This program uses web technologies that allow the audience to interact with the show while in progress. The show features live musical performances in the format of a normal recording session in Studio A. The hour-long program includes a short set by two guests and candid interviews with Rosa Guerrero (KTRU's Mutant Hardcore show) and award-winning producer Dan Workman. This 'within the scenes' context is what sets the show apart from other shows that have originated from recording studios. Our special guest and audience of one is Lou Congelio from Only in Houston and STANANDLOU.
Live from SugarHill, Episode III airs on March 5, 2009 at 7p.m. CST. This month's show features performances by Jennifer Grassman and MacAdams. Grassman is a classically-inspired, celtic, goth, singer/songwriter. Her unique style defies description. Jennifer will be performing tracks from her popular "At the Back of the North Wind" and her soon-to-be-released "Serpent Tales and Nightingales."
Prog rock power trio MacAdams will also rock the house with selections from their recently released CD and some new songs from an upcoming project.
The partnership between Zenfilm, Xprescom and SugarHill Recording Studios launched its first episode on December. Since it's inaugural broadcast it's received over 1,000 unique views and downloads.
The show is free and participants are invited to register online at http://www.ecsLIVE.com. It is also available for free download on the Live from SugarHill Vimeo channel here on March 7, or you can subscribe to the free video podcast on iTunes here.
