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.

As always we will give shout outs to our deployed military listeners. Our message to the troops: WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.
Join us this week as we welcome pop music singer songwriter, Beeler. Hailing from Southern California, Beeler has a unique sound that has been compared to pop acts like Metric and Banks. She was exposed to various artists from the past and present growing up; as a result, she developed an appreciation for many genres of music and a passion for performing at a young age. After spending years growing her skills as a songwriter and performer, Beeler co-wrote and released her first self-titled EP, produced by Jeff Pardo (Anthem Lights, Lady Antebellum, Andrew Ripp). She drew musical inspiration from artists like Depeche Mode, Lorde, and Sara Jackson-Holman, creating the dreamy electronica/pop sound heard throughout the EP. Her influences include major artists such as Marina and the Diamonds, Gotye, and Lily Allen. Supporting our troops is important to Beeler as her grandfather served in the United States Air Force and received the highest rank as a technician/mechanic. We will talk to Beeler about her upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Beeler at http://beelermusic.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with Beeler during the show (718) 766-4193. If you would like to participate in the live chat during the show, you must sign up on the show site first and then log in during the show. And as always we will give shout outs to our deployed military listeners. Be sure to join us, Sunday 8/16/2015 at 4 PM EDT! Our message to the troops: WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.
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.
