Listen To Me On Internet Radio

An invitation listen for a special 3 hour radio program.  This Friday August 1st @4 pm Central Time (US)  I will be presenting  “How I Met Your Music”. It will map a personal journey of music from the 1960’s to the music my children have introduced to me this year.

If you are a baby boomer with millennial kids who are all about music, you will know that there are a lot of things playing over the air today that sound quite like songs of decades ago.

Time for the 2nd Annual Alumni Radio weekend. The evening of July 30th through Sunday August 3rd, and myself and my college compatriots from late 70’s and early 80’s are coming back to take over the college radio station.

Over the past decades I have grown to like a lot of the music that my kids have introduced to me. Maybe part of it was because I spent seven years joining them at the annual sabbatical of the Van’s Warped Tour. The Warped Tour features over 7 stages lining up live music from 40 musicians and bands that are working hard to make it in the indie/punk/alternative world of music.

Or perhaps it was because there is [and was always was] music playing in our house as they grew up. They heard The Beatles, The Who and Queen and so much more as they started their lives and decided to search for their own music. As they would find their way, they would share it with me. “Hey dad listen to this one“.

So all these years later, I am going to present to my kids and anyone willing to listen ….”How I Met Your Music”.

August 1st for three hours starting with the first song I ever heard on my parents radio over the refrigerator in our kitchen and going through the decades that led up to my children creating their own music.

Does it sound like “How I Met Your Mother” the American TV show? Yeah – yup… sort of like that.

There will be a whole weekend of our old radio station team from the 70’s and 80’s playing just about anything! It will be electric, progressive, and a wild ride! So if you feel like steaming – I promise a fun time ( the evening of 7/30 through 8/3).

A secret about me (probably because I haven’t talked about my college years for a long time). As I worked toward my degree (Communications) back around 1980 I was also “on the air” at the college radio station. A public radio stations where students could learn the craft ( I was focused on broadcasting).  As the station manager I learned a lot about running a business, but my favorite time was getting on the radio and sharing music and information to the people on campus and around the city where the university was located (in the heart of the great northern state of  Wisconsin USA).

So many of us from that time (late 1970’s to early 1980’s) are coming back for a reunion and 4 days of radio merriment. Also to raise funds for our school.

To All My Tracks In The Dust followers: If you want to listen ON THE INTERNET it will be available to stream at this link (for Windows and I-tunes users):

You can join me LIVE for 2 hours on Thursday August 1st from Noon to 2 pm:

That is 12:00 PM CDT US to 2:00 PM CDT US.   And of course join any time you wish. I can promise you that some of the music will be classic time-machine stuff, but expect some fairly eclectic stuff as well. 

Wherever you are; whether you join or not- keep music in your heart always!
