burgeoning music scene, refusing to be ignored! This state is strangely blessed with a
huge quantity and variety of local musical talent. The music of tomorrow is being made all
around us today. Artists from all genres are creating new and interesting sounds across
the state. Whether its folk, jazz, hard core, blues, R&B, alternative,
progressive, funk, metal, or just straight-ahead rock n roll that you like,
Connecticut has got something for you. All you have to do is open your ears. The music is
right in your backyard.
In an often-unsympathetic bar and club scene and an uninterested
commercial radio market, local musicians dont often get the pay, the audience, and
the respect they deserve. Thats where WWUH comes in. Already, UH Radio incorporates
many local artists into its programming. Now theres a show that brings together
locals for an entire evening showcasing the rich musical diversity Connecticut has. Every
Monday at midnight, tune in to hear Dr. Longhairs LOCAL Anesthetic, for 3
hours of local music in all genres. Ill introduce you to all the musical neighbors
that you might not have known you had. Ill keep you posted on whats happening
in local music events and news, as well as have in-studio guests and live performances.
In future newsletters Ill be helping you get to know some of
these local artists. With show updates, CD reviews, website info, and interviews I want to
be your source for local music. Please dont hesitate to contact me via email at Dr_Longhair@altavista.com. Or if youre
an artist and would like to join the playlist, you can send submissions to:
