Here is the recap of the September 5 edition of "The Homegrown Rocker," which airs every Sunday night from 8 to 10 PM on Q94 Classic Rock!
For Labor Day Weekend, we decided to give the singers and vocalists the week off on the "Homegrown Rocker" as we presented the "Instruments Do the Talking" Special! We spotlighted all instrumental tracks from the local and regional music scene (well, almost - your show host confused Full Kilt song titles and accidentally played one of their vocal numbers), mixing a variety of musical styles along the way! We also spoke via phone with Mike Hype of the band Even The Odds; Mike filled us in on details for the 2nd annual "Homegrown Music Festival," taking place at Lorain Borough Park in Johnstown on September 11! In addition, we dug into the archive for a 2005 instrumental rocker by Wide Open for this week's "Local Music Flashback," and reviewed The Arts' all-instrumental album Numerology in "The Professor's CD Corner!" (For those who missed the program, a four-part podcast of this show is available for listening or download from Q94's website, www.q94classicrock.com. Click on "The Professor's Classroom," and then scroll down to "Homegrown Rocker Podcast" and look for the four show segments marked with the date, 090521.)
