Join us this week as we welcome the pop rock band, Starling Glow. The LA based band fronted by Liz Hill, has just released their brand new single “Caution Tape,” which comes off their debut EP. Liz Anne Hill took about 15 years and a few busted romances to create the songs that make up her band Starling Glow’s self-titled debut album, a blend of modern pop musical styles that ranges from pop/rock to dance and indie. Grammy nominated producer, songwriter, and musician Billy Mohler, one time member of L.A. band The Calling, who has also played or worked with Smashing Pumpkins, Macy Gray, Liz Phair, Kelly Clarkson, AWOLNation and skateboard pro Tony Hawk was hired to produce the record and immediately recognized the fellow Orange County native’s talent. The record was just released this past March through the newly formed Indie Label Trailblaze Music Group, where Mohler is General Manger. A multi-instrumentalist, Hill grew up in Orange County surrounded by music. Her mom played piano, her dad guitar and older sister piano, pipe organ and drums, while they all sang. Her earliest musical influences include blues/country artists like Bonnie Raitt, Shania Twain and Dolly Parton, while learning to play Jimi Hendrix and Steely Dan songs on bass. We will talk to Starling Glow about their upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at their music, feature their latest songs, and ask them to share their message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Starling Glow at http://www.starlingglow.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with them during the show (718) 766-4193.

Join us this week as we celebrate the 6 year anniversary of our show and welcome The Como Brothers Band. Hailing from Long Island, NY., Matt and Andrew Como are songwriters and musicians that value organic music, musicianship, and songs with original integrity. Music is not a hobby of the brothers but a way of life and a career. Early in life, their father and his brothers would play at family parties. Growing up in this environment inspired them to play music, and it fast became a central part of their lives. In 2013, The Como Brothers Band took their previous experience and focused on approaching the industry with honest songs. It worked. They opened for major acts such as The Wallflowers, American Idol winner David Cook, and Jilian Jensen. In exciting news for 2015, they will be releasing their new EP album "Imagination". The new album is available for pre-order on itunes now. We will talk to Matt and Andrew about their upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at their music, feature their latest songs, and ask them to share their message for the troops.

Join us this week as we welcome country rock music singer songwriter, Hicks. Hailing from Stockholm, SE., Miqael Persson aka Hicks is the first Swedish country artist to land his first two singles in the New Music Weekly Top 10, (“Hayride,” “Mama’s Kitchen”) and the first to reach the Music Row Top 80. With multiple Gold and Platinum records to his credit, his rock-edged songs have been recorded by artists like Jimi Jamison (Survivor), Giant (Dann Huff), Bobby Kimball (Toto), Little River Band, and many other Grammy-winning artists. In addition to his songwriting credits, Hicks is an Independent Country Music Association award winner, and the British Country Music Association’s 2013 European Country Act of the Year. His latest, “I Belong To You” was co-written by Hicks with Erik Martensson, and hit songwriter, Jorgen Elofsson, writer of two smash hits for Kelly Clarkson (“A Moment Like This,” “Stronger.”) With its anthemic, soaring vocal hook, Mumford and Sons-like rhythm section, and enough fiddles to inspire a river-side hoe-down, “I Belong To You” is a breath of much-needed fresh air for summer playlists. We will talk to Hicks about his upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at his music, feature his latest songs, and ask him to share his message for the troops.

A taboo topic for the dinner table and social gatherings, politics both unite and divide our world. Especially every four years. BlogTalkRadio's Election coverage is vast, varied and accurate: We know it's not always the pundits with the best insight on today's political climate; our hosts represent the voice of the people, by the people, for the people. Whether you fall on the Conservative end of the spectrum, the Progressive, are moderate or somewhere on the many shades in between, you'll find plenty of commiseration with those who share your views, some of which are famous dignitaries like Michelle Obama and Kofi Annan, or famous actors, authors, news reporters, TV personalities, even comedians. The best part? If you've got something to say, you can start your own show! Go on, hop up on that soapbox and have at it – speak your mind, rant, rave and filibuster to your heart's content.
