Here is the recap of the March 4 edition of 105.9 Qwik-Rock's weekly local music program, "The Homegrown Rocker," which airs every Sunday night from 8 to 10 PM on Lion Country's Rock Station, 105.9 Qwik-Rock. The show can also be streamed via Qwik's website, www.1059qwikrock.com.
This week, we recapped the 22nd annual Millennium Music Conference (MMC), which took place the previous weekend, Feb. 22-24, in the Harrisburg area. We featured a few audio clips from the conference, including excerpts from the Friday keynote interview with Triple Tigers Records regional manager Diane Lockner. We also featured music from some of the nearly 300 bands and artists who showcased and performed in the Harrisburg area during MMC weekend, and we announced the winner of the "Homegrown Rocker" dropbox drawing during the MMC trade show - Bucks County native and Houston, Texas-based singer and songwriter Jeannine Higgins, who wins a guest appearance on our March 25 program! And we reviewed a recording from a Millennium artist - Jake Tavill's Twisted Ideology CD - in "The Professor's CD Corner!"
