NBRN.FM Internet Radio

For many internet radio is a relatively unknown source of entertainment. Even with the growth of the personal computer in the household many users are completely unaware of what is available to them by means of the internet. However for those who have discovered internet radio they have also discovered that it is fast becoming (or is already) the best source of music that they can no longer find on their local AM or FM radio dial. As an example, the Nashville Broadcasting Radio Network (www.nbrn.fm) is one of the best sources of “traditional” country music that you will find anywhere. NBRN.FM broadcasts using “SAM’S Player” which many consider the industry standard for internet broadcasting. Of the approximately 40,000 internet radio stations worldwide, Audio Realm reports that only 2000 of those actually use “SAM’S”. It is worthy to note here that there is a difference between an Internet Radio “Station” as opposed to an internet radio “program”.

THE ROYAL CROWNS REDUX

Royal Crowns

By Lenny Stoute

The twenty-year mark is a big ol’ social threshold. You’re not a teenager anymore and folks expect changes from you. Same deal if you’re a band; it doesn’t have to be mind blowing change but the fans do expect some minor adjustments and a re-arranging of the familiar palette.

That’s fine for some but not so much for Teddy Fury, drummer, singer, wisecracker and guiding light for rockabilly icons The Royal Crowns. For the 20th anniversary, the Crowns have been reconfigured as a trio, with two gone and one new guy in. The result is a stripped down sound closer to the original rockabilly racket. Won’t be able to judge for ourselves until the Fall, when the group’s third album and first as a trio drops.

“ Yeah, we’ve got all the songs written and I guess we’re in pre-production mode,” says the irrepressible Fury,“ I called the Dome for the album release party but they couldn’t find a 40 seat set-up” he deadpans. Tight as they can be as players, The Royal Crowns have always carried a loose, even a tad zany, vibe about them that is as much a part of the rockabilly subculture as rooster ‘dos and blue suede shoes. The songwriting? Fury allows that’s a serious business.

Goddo Film Party

Goddo Invite

Hot on the heels of the Success of Anvil and their On the Road Documentary that landed them an “Oscar Nomination.” And now the Stones “Exile on Main Street”, Greg Godovitz of Goddo fame and the band will be laying down their road stories and more in “film format” on May 28th at The Sound Academy with a live concert, commemorating the band 35th Anniversary. The event will harbor performances by members and artists that had played on various Goddo Sessions through the years. They're also going to be surprise guest that may sit in on a tune with Goddo stay tuned for up dates on some of the performers that are going to be part of the show as well.

Goddo was formed by bassist Greg Godovitz of Fludd with guitarist Gino Scarpelli of Brutus fame and drummer Marty Morin. In 1975, they released the single "Louie Louie" on A & M Records Canada which helped them secure more work on the Southern Ontario bar circuit. Marty Morin left in 1976 and was replaced by Doug Inglis on drums. In 1977, Goddo was signed to Polydor Records. Their self-titled debut album was released later that year.

The follow-up album, If Indeed It's Lonely At The Top...WHO CARES...It's Lonely At The Bottom Too! (1978), features a barbed view of rock and roll lifestyles and the music industry in general.’ An Act Of Goddo' followed in 1979 along with a live performance in Toronto. The performance, called 'An Act Of Goddo In Church', has since been re-issued on DVD as "Live".

TERRY SUMSION SIGNS WITH THE "NEW" BULLET RECORDS"

Terry Sumsion

By RB Renegade

NASHVILLE, TN: Bruce C. Elrod, President and Keith Bradford, Executive Director of Bullet Records (Nashville) are pleased to announce the signing of Canadian Country Music Icon, Terry Sumsion to the newly activated “Bullet Records”.

The “Bullet Record” label based in Nashville, USA, which was started in 1945 by Jim Bulliet and C.V. Hitchcock. Bulliet was an early partner in Sun Records. Its only national hit was Francis Craig's pop recording of "Near You" made in early 1947, but the label was known for country music artists such as Boots Woodall's Radio Wranglers, who also recorded for Capitol Records, and Southern Gospel artists such as the Rangers Quartet and Speer Family. In 1949 they released B. B. King's first commercial single, Miss Martha King. Too much money was spent in hope of repeating the success of Francis Craig's "Near You" and the label was in trouble by 1949. Jim Bulliet sold out to W.C. "Red" Wortham, who had his Delta label (distributed by Bullet) in the same building. The label limped on for a few years but was out of business by 1952.

Bullet Records has now been revived.  Purchased by Bruce C. Elrod, President & CEO of Cashbox Magazine and Cashbox Records, Bullet Records will focus on Country Music artists.  The Nashville Office is headed by Keith Bradford (Executive Director).  Keith is a noted musician, having been the front man and bass player of Kitty Wells for over 16 years.  As the head of KMA Records, Nashville, Keith has produced over 500 albums and written close to 600 songs.

Country Faces Cancer

Light The Night

Country Faces Cancer (CFC) is an industry-wide effort led by Great American Country's Nan Kelley, a proud lymphoma survivor, to help raise awareness and support for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) through its Light The Night Walk.

Country music fans in partnership with their favorite country artist will raise funds to make a difference in the lives of thousands of patients and their families!

Leukemia is a malignant disease (cancer) of the bone marrow and blood. It is characterized by the uncontrolled accumulation of blood cells. Leukemia is divided into four categories: myelogenous or lymphocytic, each of which can be acute or chronic. The terms myelogenous or lymphocytic denote the cell type involved. The are four major types of leukemia.

Lymphoma is the name for a group of blood cancers that develop in the lymphatic system. Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) are the two main types of lymphoma.

Lymphoma originates in the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is part of the body's immune system, which is the body's defense against infection. The marrow and lymphocytes are part of the immune system. Some other parts of the immune system are the lymph nodes, the lymphatic vessels and the spleen.

Lymphoma starts with a change to a lymphocyte. The change to the lymphocyte causes it to become a lymphoma cell. The lymphoma cells pile up and form masses that gather in the lymph nodes or other parts of the lymphatic system.

Elaine Tennyson plans the 1st Annual Friends Day Celebration in Ontario, Canada.

Elaine Tennyson

Dear Friends,

I hope you and yours are healthy and happy. It was Mother's Day 2009 at Washington Savage's funeral, when I conceived the idea to have a "Friends Day" Celebration. I attended Gary Quinn's "Celebration of Life" the night before, and Kenny MacLean's funeral a few months prior. I recall standing outside the church with Molly Johnson reminiscing and embracing the reality of mortality, saying, "today is Mother's Day, there's Father's Day and Family Day." There should be a "Friends Day." The seed was planted.

That was just the beginning. Like some of you, I've lost many family/friends/acquaintances the last couple of years - twenty one to be exact. I saw friends and acquaintances I hadn't seen or contacted in years at the funerals. We all agreed to "get together soon!" Well, here it is one year later - the way some of us reconnected was at funerals.

Years go by - we get older - and die. Let's get together and Celebrate Friends & Life!
