In The SUMMERTIME

July 12th, 2006

Hey Everybody…

Welcome to summer, what with the heat and the torrential downpours, the Bar-B-Que and the lawnmowing…and the swimming and music…

First up I’d like to hip everybody to a new online thing called Berks.TV…I was contacted by the editor and founder Dan Karleen about doing a short interview for video, so we met before one of my performances at The Stonersville Hotel with Julie..

the result was a bunch of interview footage and a recording of the performance to be edited down into segments, some of which are now online for your perusal…there are currently two segments up that either include myself or Julie Edlow…just scroll down…

…at the bottom of this blog I’ve included the Berks.TV mission statement…I encourage you to check this out on a regular basis, especially if you live in the area of Berk County, PA…. thanks, Tara And Dan!

In other news…

I’m spending alot of time in July up in State College rehearsing with my old and now current band STONE POETS…all five of us (Dr. Mudgett, Rev. James, JK and Jack) got together earlier this week to start rehearsing for the show we have planned on August 19th, and for future shows because we will be playing more and more over the course of the year…in the meantime we’ve worked up a good set of some of the things we were doing before I abruptly left in 2002 as well as a crop of new songs…no loftly plans except to sound better than we ever have, and to my ears it sounds like we are on the right path- the guys sound great…

more on that as it develops…in the meantime, more info about our appearance at Homegrownradionj.com’s Wine & Music Festival can be gotten HERE…the show won’t be broadcast live, so you’ll have to shell out the whole $15 and make the trip for more than a couple bands playing all day long…more than worth 15 mere dollars (the price of one new CD)…

Also coming up is the Bears’ Picnic in Milton, PA on Saturday, July 22nd…Julie and I will be playing the late night jam and also a ‘tweener’ set earlier….ticket info can be gotten HERE

Friday, August 25th I’ll be doing a solo set at Hexfest in Barto, PA, from 5 to 6…e-mail me if you need tix, or go HERE

Sunday, August 27th Julie and I will be performing with bassist Craig Burkey and percussionist Matt Cullen at Blue Mountain Summit from 5 to 8, outdoors…a really nice place along the Appalachian Trail on 309 north of Allentown…

There are also solo and duo appearances throughout the summer, so just check DATES here on this website

Don’t forget to check out my weekly radio show, Black Mountain Underground on Homegrownradionj.com every monday at noon…

If you have an interest in bluegrass music, check out our friend Brad’s Bluegrass Page HERE..

and don’t dive in head first before you know the waters…

Mahalo…

WHY BERKS.TV?

Let’s face it. The future of TV-in fact the future of all media-is online, always-on, and 100% on-demand. It’s also going to be created by people like you and me-ordinary people looking for a way to connect with our communities and share what we’ve learned with others.

Berks County is a place of opportunity, and it’s seeing unprecedented growth as a result. Thanks to modest cost of living compared with earning conditions, Salary.com recently named Reading, PA, one of the best places in the U.S to live and acquire wealth. Clearly the region has its challenges as well, and the next few years will be pivotal.

Much like Berks itself, the established media also face a crossroads. Layoffs and mergers abound as legions of readers find new sources for information and themselves gain a voice through blogging, podcasting, online networks, video sharing, and the like. Viewership of some online TV offerings like the daily Rocketboom is in the hundreds of thousands, and advertisers and investors are beginning to follow along.

Our mission at Berks.TV is to chart the continued rise of this region and to help make connections among those in the community, those who have moved on, and those seeking to make their futures here or simply inquire from beyond. Video on the Web is the perfect medium to carry out this mission.

At Berks.TV, we believe in the long-term power of Web+Video, and in the importance that individuals have access to make media. We wouldn’t be launching this site if we didn’t. We also believe that video on the Web is going to mature very rapidly, both in terms of quality and ubiquity. This is why nearly all of our footage is being shot in the High Definition standard of 1080i. We will offer selected High Definition segments via the Web, so that you can get a sense of what the future holds.

Most importantly, we’ll be bringing you the people, places, and events that make this region a unique and desirable place to settle, learn, do business, and create.
-The Editor, Berks.TV
