TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE – 17TH APRIL 2012 8PM EST special guests this week – THE ROBODRUM
“From Memphis to Miami, the blues has been introduced to a whole new audience as Beale St Blues duo Dusty & the RoboDrum has taken the blues off of its 60 year old shelf, blown the dust off of it & given it a facelift to create a whole new genre of music… modernizing the blues for a contemporary audience. Radio freindly & beat-driven, this is the blues as you have never heard it before. It is time for the music that started it all to become mainstream again. And this new mature sound is just the beginning.”
JAMIE ALIMORAD was last week’s guest on TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE , This was Jamie’s second appearance on the show and once again he captivated the live audience with a taste of some of his new music from his new up coming album WORDS LEFT UNSAID.

MERRY ELLEN KIRK is the featured guest this week in the INDIE ARTISTS SPOTLIGHT presented by KIVA JOHNS ADKINS. This is a pre-recorded show and airs on MONDAY 16TH APRIL 2012 8PM EST
“Merry Ellen Kirk is a poet. Perhaps “songwriter” is a more commonly used term, but it’s also too commonplace for Merry Ellen’s glittering narratives, songs that spring up wildly from her subconscious and bloom into vibrant, lilting melodies. Her sparkling piano refrains sweep and spill into fresh, sweet rivulets of notes; her lyrics weave bright, halcyon tales of dream sequences, the light and dark polarities of the human experience, and beauty in its many forms”
