    Bulls Letting Bucks Hang Around, Blackhawks Look To Tame the Wild Again

    in Sports

    After seizing a commanding 3-0 series lead over the young and inexperienced Milwaukee Bucks, the Chicago Bulls find themselves heading back to Milwaukee to play a Game 6 after losing two straight.  There are many questions surrounding this Bulls team as they struggle to put away what many believe to be an inferior opponent.  Turnovers, poor shooting, and an apparent lack of desire didn't come between the Bulls and 3 early victories in this series, but now they're in trouble.  With new developments elsewhere in the Eastern Conference playoffs seemingly opening the door for the Bulls to reach the NBA Finals, will they get their act together and put the Bucks away? The Chicago Blackhawks, meanwhile, managed to finish off the Nashville Predators in six games, and now are preparing to take on the Minnesota Wild in the second round.  This is the 3rd straight year these teams will meet in the playoffs.  But after sending the Wild home in 2013 and 2014, the Blackhawks face a much bigger challenge this time around.  All this plus your phone calls at (347) 327-9183!

    Kiler Davenport Live: Interview with Sean Patrick McGraw

    in Country Music

    Call it Irish grit. “If you grew up where I grew up,” McGraw recalls, “you were automatically hyphenated either Irish, Polish, or Italian, and your dad worked in the mill, that was a given.” Hailing from a small steel industry town about 50 miles outside of Buffalo, New York, McGraw was raised on Hee-Haw (“We loved Conway Twitty, or at least his haircut”) and rough games of hockey and football. Small for his age and showing little athletic promise, he gravitated towards music, and good thing: “If I’d have stuck with the sports I liked any longer I might have ended up getting my head taken off. We never wore pads, let alone helmets.” Instead, McGraw grew out his hair, picked up a cheap Japanese guitar, and at 13 started a rock band with friends, playing in bars a couple of nights a week—with a note from his mother in hand, in case the cops asked any questions.


    As soon as he finished high school, McGraw hightailed it to Los Angeles with rock star dreams and a country sensibility. Wearing out records by Dwight Yoakam and Steve Earle, and “digging through stacks of junk at the Pasadena flea market looking for old Buck Owens and Johnny Cash on vinyl,” he developed his own unique hard-core hillbilly sound.


    It’s a crazy life, and McGraw looks upon it with bemused satisfaction in “My So Called Life,” reflecting, “Some days I own this town, other days it shoots me down/Always I’m still hanging round, holdin’ on to hope.” Expertly depicting the driving pace of his “Honky Tonk Life,” McGraw stubbornly continues to hope: “I could quit all this road stuff, go back to my real job, put in a straight 9 to 5/But I love the neon, I love the people, and I love the Honky Tonk Life.”

    Radio [itvt]: "Refashioning of Pay-TV's Technology and Content Infrastructure"

    in Technology

    [itvt] is pleased to present an audio recording of the TVOT NYC 2014 session, "The Refashioning of Pay-TV's Technology and Content Infrastructure." The session was described in the show brochure as follows:


    "By most accounts, the past few months have been a rocky time for pay-TV: according to a recent report from Leichtman Research Group, for example, the 13 largest operators in the US (representing 95% of the market) lost 150,000 video subscribers in the third quarter, compared to 25,000 in the same period last year; and nary a day goes by without a story appearing in the business press about the 'decline' or even the 'demise' of pay-TV.


    This session brings together representatives of some of the companies that are looking to help pay-TV arrest its video-subscriber losses and revitalize its technology and content infrastructure with innovative solutions that will enable it to adapt to a rapidly evolving video world. Panelists will articulate their visions of the future of pay-TV, and debate and discuss the respective roles that will be played in that future by such new technologies and phenomena as the cable Reference Design Kit (RDK), HTML5, the incorporation of broadband services and applications onto the pay-TV set-top box, the migration to IP, multiscreen delivery, the emergence of cloud-based content services, and more." Panelists included:



    Steve Donohue, Editor-in-Chief, The Donohue Report (Moderator)
    Mike Earle, CEO, aioTV
    Fred Handsman, SVP of Strategic Planning and Business Development, Vubiquity
    Michael Hawkey, SVP and GM, Sling Media
    Tara Maitra, EVP and GM of Content and Media Sales, TiVo
    Bernee Strom, Founder and Executive Chairman, WebTuner
    Robin Wilson, VP of Business Development, NAGRA

    The Flatlanders: Now It's Now Again

    in Music

    A group of three friends who made music in a house in Lubbock, Texas, recorded an album that wasn’t released and went their separate ways into solo careers. That group became a legend and then - twenty years later - a band. The Flatlanders - Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Butch Hancock - are icons in American music, with songs blending country, folk, and rock that have influenced a long list of performers, including Robert Earl Keen, the Cowboy Junkies, Ryan Bingham, Terry Allen, John Hiatt, Hayes Carll, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, and Lyle Lovett.


    In The Flatlanders: Now It's Now Again, Austin author and music journalist John T. Davis traces the band’s musical journey from the house on 14th Street in Lubbock to their 2013 sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall. He explores why music was, and is, so important in Lubbock and how earlier West Texas musicians such as Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison, as well as a touring Elvis Presley, inspired the young Ely, Gilmore, and Hancock. Davis vividly recreates the Lubbock countercultural scene that brought the Flatlanders together and recounts their first year (1972–1973) as a band, during which they recorded the songs that, decades later, were released as the albums More a Legend Than a Band and The Odessa Tapes. He follows the three musicians through their solo careers and into their first decade as a (re)united band, in which they cowrote songs for the first time on the albums Now Again and Hills and Valleys and recovered their extraordinary original demo tape, lost for forty years. Many roads later, the Flatlanders are finally both a legend and a band.
