For those who may not know, WJOB and FlyingAround TheSun have a show every Thursday night at 9:00 PM, featuring different musicians from the NW Indiana region "who write & perform original music." It is difficult for artists to get their own music out, to be heard, to grow a fan base. This radio station, this show hosted by Mark Mybeck and Phil Rapchak (both of them from the group Nomad Planets), offers a platform for musicians from our region to be heard. To share their talent with NW Indiana, and NW Indiana is dripping with talent.
This evening was about Pete Calacci and his new CD "Other Side", produced by Pete Calacci. Pete described how long it took him to put this CD together, how the cover came about, and I will mention here because it was not mentioned on the radio, the inside photos were taken by my pal Renee Wicinski, who happens to be Pete's girlfriend, and who has basically grown up with Pete through his guitar playing years. I greatly admire Renee's photography, and wanted to give her credit here.
Here are some photos of the evening . . .
