Here is the recap of the October 11 edition of "The Homegrown Rocker," which airs every Sunday night from 8 to 10 PM on Q94 Classic Rock (94.3 FM) in Altoona and Lion Country's Rock Station, 105.9 Qwik-Rock. The show can also be streamed via both stations' websites.
Again, we raided the mailboxes this week to explore more new area recordings that have arrived in recent days, and debuted more new music! New tunes from Ted McCloskey, We Came From Space, Summeoyo, Devon Beck, Little Buddy, Crain Bonner, Pensive Fear and A Common Crown all made their "Homegrown Rocker" debuts! We also updated "Local Music News," dug a 1979 tune from Harrisburg's Maxwell from the archive (their Three Mile Island-inspired regional hit song "Radiation Funk") for this week's "Local Music Flashback," stepped "Across State Lines" to hear a new song from Boston's Sunset Kings, and reviewed Donny Burns & the 3rd Degree's Satisfied album in "The Professor's CD Corner!"

Craig has released a Halloween-themed album called Halloween Ball Part One. Craig will tell us about the album and its inspirations, and how he created the album, recorded and engineered by Joe (who also contributes keyboard work) at Joe's Progressive Enterprises Recording Studio in Elizabethtown - and we'll feature tunes and spooky snippets from the album as well! Along the way, we will update "Local Music News," dig a "Local Music Flashback" from the archive, and review Joey Dalto's All For You album in "The Professor's CD Corner!"
