Bon Voyage Matt Dolan - PSS & Bill Dolan - D.C.'s Tavern March 6 - 9PM - Closing

Hello Y'all,
There are so many things to tell everyone about this week.

First off, Bill and I will be burying the patrons of D.C.'s with pounds and pounds of Hardcore, Punk and 70's Rock madness in honor of the one and only Big Red. Bill's brother Matt departs from our shores to continue a life anew with his family in far away lands. There better be beer where he is going or man he is going to be pissed off! Before he goes we will help him stock up; we know he is full when his eyes are floating. Matt has been a major part of my life and anyone who frequents D.C.'s or Louise & Jerry's. As always, this means we will have a late night visit by Hoboken Board of Ed Officer Anthony Romano... just in case you're holding. Bon Voyage Big Red!

WFMU is nearing the end of its 50th Anniversary Listener Marathon. Anyone reading this and NOT familiar with FMU needs to log on immediately to ANY archived show at or tune in 91.1 fm in the NYC area (90.1 in the Hudson Valley) and start taking notes. Conservatively I would say about 50% of my music knowledge has come from the airwaves of FMU. My Dad was a listener so I truly do not know life without FMU and hope I never have to. I have contributed in my own special ways to the station over the years. This year I had the opportunity to break out the brush & ink and design a t-shirt for one of the DJ Premiums. This time around Mr. Fine Wine gets that fine Longo treatment. Just click on the "Mr. Fine Wine presents Downtown Soulville T-shirt" link under "Friday" under the DJ Premiums Selector in the left hand side navigation of the Pledge page - for a closer look. The back of the shirt has a manipulated Tuba Records (owned by Fine Wine's Uncle) label design with Matt's show info. Please give what you can to the station. They are 100% listener sponsored.

I got this email the other night from a buddy of mine:

Subject: SodaCan = StephenChopek
Date: Mar 3, 2008 7:24 AM
SodaCan has a new website featuring music and art by Stephen Chopek.
Please take a few moments to visit us at

I did just that. Actually, I listened to the music twice through while working. Yes, it is that good. Google "Stephen Chopek" and you will see that this isn't just some friend's music but music by an incredible musician who happens to be a friend. Please check it out.
