Don't Touch That Dial - Week 2


In Charlotte, NC, all the musicians and aging hipsters got together and formed internet radio station Plaza Midwood Community Radio to fill a void in their market. Charlotte, NC, despite being a huge city, has no college radio style station! Their station is non-profit and 100% volunteer run. It relies on donations from the community to stay afloat! So, they came up with a fantastic fundraising idea - release a FREE EP of some of their local bands/musicians once a week for four weeks. At the end of the four weeks, but the whole thing together into one giant comp that people can download in exchange for a small donation to the station.

I know what you are thinking...local musicians? From Charlotte? Well...don't despair. The comp is actually pretty terrific. In coming weeks it will feature well known acts like Benji Hughes and the legendary country/folk musician David Childers.

Here's Week 2 of the Free EPs. It is Free, but if you feel like sending them a dollar or two, it would help them out a lot!
