Mark Your Calendars for the River Family Music Meltdown and Book Bash!

Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child

Uncle Rock tomorrow, plus other updates and an announcement

We’ve had some great turnouts at the shows we’ve had recently, and they just keep on coming…most importantly for right now, here’s tomorrow’s show:

  • Saturday, January 17, 2009 at 2:00pm: Uncle Rock at Northampton Community Music Center – $5! (net proceeds to NCMC’s scholarship fund) Long time Hudson Valley friend of the radio show and favorite visitor returns to town to rock out. Uncle Rock will appear on tomorrow morning’s radio show (93.9 The River, 101.5 in Brattleboro, also on 103.3 Valley Free Radio). NCMC has highly functional heat, so we’ll keep you warm.

Some other upcoming stuff to note on your calendars is below, including a big announcement of a kids’ music festival in the end of March. You can also follow our calendar at here.
(which is also on our page at or listen to the show every Saturday morning from 7 to 9.

  • Saturday, January 24, 2009 at 1:00: Harmonica Pocket at Mass MoCA (we’ll have them on our show either that morning or the following week, btw) (this is not a show we’re putting on, but it’ll be fun) Fun indie pop for kids.  You can enter to win free tickets from Hilltown Families here.
  • Sunday, February 1, 2009 at 1:00pm: Secret Agent 23 Skidoo at Lyman Hall, First Churches – $7!

SA23’s show last fall was a highlight of the year, and this will be a great pre-Super Bowl show for the whole family. We’ll have you home in plenty of time for the game, I promise.
