    LET'S LIGHTEN UP: STORIES FROM AMERICANA

    in Lifestyle

    BEING THAT MY SHOW IS LISTED AS A LIFESTYLE PROGRAM, MAYBE IT'S TIME TO LIGHTEN THINGS UP A BIT.  THAT'S NOT TO SAY THAT MY RELIGIOUS ORIENTED PROGRAMS AS WELL AS POLITICAL AND SOCIAL COMMENTARY ISSUES WILL BE DISCONTINUED, BUT PERHAPS IT'S TIME TO LIGHTEN THINGS UP.  AND NOTHING CAN DO THAT BETTER THAN A GOOD DOSE OF AMERICANA: THINGS FROM OUR PAST THAT CAN BE FUNNY, SOMETIMES SAD, BUT ALWAYS INTERESTING AS A CHANGE OF PACE.  LET'S FACE IT, FOLKS, WE REALLY DON'T KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT WHO WE ARE AND WHERE WE CAME FROM.  THE ONSET OF THE NUCLEAR FAMILY CHANGED ALL THAT AND I THINK BECAUSE OF THAT WE MISS A LOT.  BUT HERE'S THE THING: WHAT WE WANT IS STORIES FROM YOU, NOT JUST OUR STORIES HERE AT NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE.  THEY CAN BE ABOUT ANYTHING IN YOUR PAST AS LONG AS IT IS NOT UNSAVORY TO A GENERAL AUDIENCE. IT CAN BE ABOUT A SPECIAL CHILDHOOD MOMENT, AN EXPERIENCE IN THE SERVICE, TRAVEL MEMORIES, WHATEVER IS MEMORABLE AND WOULD BE OF INTEREST.  AND YOU CERTAINLY DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A GREAT RADIO VOICE BECAUSE WE DON'T HERE EITHER. WE'RE JUST LOOKING FOR THINGS FROM THE HEART THAT ARE MEMORABLE.


    WE'LL START OUT WITH A STORY TUESDAY AND ASK THAT YOU, THE AUDIENCE, GET IN TOUCH FOR FUTURE INTERESTING TIDBITS.  LET'S LIGHTEN UP AND HAVE SOME FUN. IT'S GOOD FOR THE SPIRIT.


    OUR FIRST AMERICANA SHOW WILL KICK OFF TUESDAY AT 9:00 AM.  WE'LL JUST PLAY IT BY EAR GOING FORWARD. WHETHER IT BECOMES A REGULAR FEATURE OR NOT WILL DEPEND UPON YOU.  HOPE THE IDEA MIGHT LIGHT A FIRE.  SEE YOU TOMORROW.

    Valley Shine ... Folk/Pop/Americana

    in Indie Music

    Tonight Pop Art Painter Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) welcomes Jenna and Sam of the fantastic Folk/Pop/Americana band Valley Shine to the Show! 



    www.valleyshineband.com


    Valley Shine was distilled from a love of whiskey, cats and bluegrass music. In early 2014, Jenna Blake was in search of a writing partner with an appreciation for folk music who shared her passion for songwriting. Hailing from Louisville, KY, Jenna was influenced by traditional bluegrass music and roots rock like CCR, CSNY and Joni Mitchell. By a sheer stroke of luck, Jenna discovered Sam Sobelman and the two met up to see if there was any musical chemistry. After a couple of writing sessions influenced by whisky, laughs and some banjo pluckin', they quickly discovered their songwriting styles were a perfect match.
