Saturday's Radio Dispatch - 8/28/12


Rob Christensen here from Saturday’s Radio. We thought it was time to send out a newsletter to let you know what the boys and girls of Saturday’s Radio have been up to. 

  • This week we continued the Saturday’s Radio reissue program and put out a remastered version of our third album, Opera Alley. Like our previous reissues, we think it sounds much better than the original that came out way back in 2000.  It’s more full and less harsh. Like Smile Slightly and The Truth Hurts, it’s available for download on iTunes,Amazon, and CDBaby, and can be streamed on Spotify, Rhapsody, etc. 

  • We’ve put up several more songs on YouTube, including lyric videos for “Sorry Again”, ”Thirteen Weeks”, and “Cracked”, and fun little video featuring 1921 Harold Lloyd clips for “Free For All”. We’ll get some videos up for Opera Alley in the very near future. 

  • Don’t forget to check out our Weekly Music Poll. We were doing a daily poll, but for a variety of reasons we’ve decided to make it, you guessed it, weekly. This week we’re asking folks to pick an American band from the sixties. The choices are The Beach Boys, The Byrds, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors, and The Velvet Underground. Last week The Beatles, The Kinks, and The Who all tied for favorite sixties British band. 

  • We’ve been setting up more Saturday’s Radio Stations along the frontier that is the Internet. Check us out on BandcampReverbNationTumblr, and Google+. We’ve also got pages under construction on  SoundCloud and MySpace. And don’t forget, we love our Twitter followers and to folks who “Like” our Facebook page. 

  • Future plans for Saturday’s Radio include the remixing and remastering of album #4 Roses For Sharon in the fall and a solo acoustic tour next summer. If you’d like me to play in your town please leave a note. If you can bring a bunch of friends and/or provide a couch or spare bedroom that would be just super!

Take care!   - Rob Christensen & Saturday’s Radio
