We hope everybody had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. While we were preparing for, and enjoying the holiday, the Gremlins came out in force and caused all manner of technical mayhem. Everything is back to normal thanks to the special efforts of our colleagues who worked on their days off.

Thank you all who have signed on to Facebook as 101.5 The Music Place fans. As many of you know we had to blow up the original page and create a new one to accommodate the multi administrators of the page we have here. Its all sorted out and everyone who needs access can now do so easily without interfering with the other administrators. Unfortunately, we lost all the fans during the transition. If you had signed on earlier please do so again. We miss you. You can link to Facebook from our home page.

We have entered into a special arrangement with Studio Roanoke and you'll be hearing more about that on the radio as well as here on the site. Within a couple of days Studio Roanoke will have it's very own page on The 101.5 The Music Place website keeping you informed of all the exciting productions coming up in their magnificent space at 30 Campbell Ave. SW Roanoke. If you aren't familiar with their great work you have been depriving yourself of some ridiculously good entertainment.

Speaking of ridiculously good entertainment at ridiculously low prices, our friends at the Kirk Avenue Music Hall have a strong schedule for December. There will be a special page on the 101.5 The Music Place website going up later this week. Watch for it.

Can't go until I shamefully point out that a Scottish Terrier took the Best of Show ribbon at the National Dog Show in Philly Thanksgiving Day.

We launched some new programs this week and we hope you like them. On Sunday mornings from nine until eleven o'clock The Acoustic Cafe takes over The Music Place for two hours of new and classic acoustic music. Songwriting is what brings all the artists together in the Anna Arbor studio that is home to the AC. If you love great songs and performances of great songs you will probably feel right at home with the AC. Read More...

It was nice meeting all the folks who stopped by The Kirk Avenue Music Hall Friday. A heart felt thank you to Gary and all his associates for their great hospitality. We are all privileged to have a venue committed to new and adventurous music in the midst of our community. Please support ALL the venues in town that are committed to more than the top 40. Please make a special effort to support the 101.5 The Music Place partners who advertise with us on air. Their support is crucial to our success. We are in the process of developing a special recognition page on this site to help you find them. The very first business to show the wisdom to advertise on 101.5 The Music Place is the Coffee Pot. Show them some love! Read More...
