lot of times we use Nashville artists for our bumper music.
Many of these artists are unknown, others are well known.
Most of this music you won't hear on mainstream radio...yet.
We pride ourselves on being able to recognize talent. Below,
you'll find some of the tunes that our Minister of Music,
Johnny B, weaves into the show each day, as well as guests
we've had on the show just because we like their music. You
can sample their music by clicking on the CD which takes you
to their web page.
you're an artist trying to get radio play, send us your
CD. If we like it, we'll feature it on the show and this
music page. It doesn't matter what format as long as it's
good. Make sure you send three copies (one for me to review,
one for Johnny B to review and one for the studio) and send
it to my attention at WTN, 10 Music Circle East, Nashville,
TN 37203. Imagine that. Talk radio breaking records.
Hastings Band - Get It On
is one helluva CD. Christian and the boys mix their
original tunes with some old standards like Bill Withers'
Use Me and Marvin Gaye's Let's Get It On. It's raw
and soulful. You'll feel like you're sittin' in one
of those basement clubs where your feet stick to the
tiles from all the spilled beer. This CD is a lot
Beeb Birtles - Driven By Dreams
is one of the founding members of the Little River
Band and responsible for their signature harmonies.
One of the best examples can be found in the tune
he co-wrote called Happy Anniversary Baby. Remember
that one? Beeb again uses those remarkable harmonies
in his solo CD, Driven By Dreams. All ten songs are
a natural progression of where LRB would be today
had the original members stayed together.
Wilderness is a Christian Rock band (and we emphasize
ROCK) who moved to Nashville from the San Diego area.
If you like high-energy rock 'n roll, you'll love
these guys. In many cases, rockers will turn up the
amps to drown out the sub-standard vocals. Not these
guys. The vocals are as good as the tunes they sing.
Rock on witcha bad self.
Pork Chop Kelly - Don't Blame Me
Chop (I understand she got the name when she stumped
one of those weight guessers at the fair; at least
that's what I was told) belts out ten tunes ranging
from a slow country standard to kickin' country rock.
It's good stuff from beginning to end. You'll probably
recognize Hang On Hurricane as one of our favorite
