Hometown Heroes Show Number 42 Week of April 13-20, 2007

Ballroom Blitz Part I

You know the phrase, The Blitz is on? Well, its true in this case, as in the 2nd Annual Ballroom Blitz at Cain's Ballroom here in Tulsa, on Saturday, April 28. This event and its Fall campanion, Freakers' Ball are the two largest single day showcase events for Tulsa area bands. Being a pro-Tulsa broadcast/podcast it only made perfect sense for us to showcase this 4 stage, 25 plus band event. Sometimes you have to put your money where your mouth is, so here we go.

Don't forget, and we won't let you anyway. Education is important. That's why we give you not one, but two really fun facts each show. They always relate to Tulsa and/or Oklahoma. Where else will you find out which city in the U.S. is number one for allergy sufferers to live? or just try to guess where President Franklin D. Roosevelt made a secret visit to in 1943...

You don't have to thank us for all of this free music and information, just spread the word.  Y'all come back now.

Rook - Why I Linger
The Red Alert - The Only One
Severmind - Revive
HotRodBob - 700 Club
Crooked X - Procrastinator
Black Wednesday - Pigs In Hell
Los Reactors - Culture Shock
Brian Parton - Glam It Up
Bait - Gone

Hometown Heroes Show Number 41 Week of April 6-13, 2007

It's a Tulsa, Tulsa, Tulsa, Tulsa World. At least where we come from. T-town's not perfect, but its perfect for us. If you come from Tulsa, it's easy to fit in to cities like Dallas or Austin. And we don't mean in a Yeehaw, ride'em cowboy kind of way. Stereotypes can be hard to break, but we think we do a good job every week with the music showcased here. Sure we have our Garth Brooks, but we also have our Flaming Lips.

Last weeks was part one of our Ladies First theme featuring, well female vocalists. Welcome to Part 2.

Degage - Love Patrol
Jenny Labow - The Heaviest Thing
Dulcinea - Walking On Fire
30 Ot Six - With Hateful Pride
Wanda Watson - Love One Another
Shannon Thomas - Another You
Driven - Mr. Lovely
Siren - I Want You
Ultrafix - Rounder
Rusti Love - Seesaw
Spank - Break Me
Amy Newsom - Window Of Opportunity

Hometown Heroes Show Number 40 Week of March 30 - April 6, 2007

Lordy, Lordy look who's 40. 40 years ago, in 1967, we were just a bunch of young college age radicals with a vision, oh, not THAT 40. More like 40 weeks ago...Honestly, a lot has happened in the last 40 weeks. Our listenership is in the thousands, we have been accepted by iTunes, we have a global audience, including the UK, Europe, and Canada. A national audience from Seattle, WA and Austin, TX to Washington D.C. and a massive local following that reminds us why we do this. We won't  pat ourselves on the back too much though because we know our constant mission of keeping the hills alive with the sound of Tulsa music is very, very far from over. This week's Diabolicast is called Ladies First featuring some of our area's finest female vocalists, this is only Part I.
