"The "APPLAUSE" Show is presented to you through the financial contributions of barbershop harmony singers and chapters, acappella music fans, and listeners from all over the world. We are proud to be a part of Regional Broadcasting Services, Village Radio, who has provided you with the longest time slot (4 1/2 hours) of radio broadcasting featuring barbershop and acappella music in the world"
Hi There Netters!
Last week we had a great show with a "live" performance from a guest quartet, some interviews with convention execs and the song favorites of the members of the "Somertones", the Somerset Hills Chapter of the men's Society. The Somertones had provided the funding for 1 week of broadcasting of The "APPLAUSE" Show, for that donation, they became the "PROGRAM DIRECTOR" for the show for one night.
If your chapter, your acappella group, your quartet, or you as an individual, would like to sponsor one night of programming, the amount of the donation is $175.00. After we receive your donation, we will forward you a list of the CD's in our library and you will have the opportunity to lay out the 70-75 songs we would play during "YOUR" night of the show.
This is just one way you can support the show. We need continuing funding throughout the year to stay on the air. Check out our web-site at :
It will give you all the information on the many ways that you can help us continue bringing you the finest of the music in our library. And we thank everyone for their support to date.
This past weekend began the round of Division Contests in the Mid Atlantic District. We were pleased to have Bill VanderHaar and Win Winter from the Somertones who were hosting the convention. They both gave us some insight as to the behind the scenes activity and committee work that goes into bringing barbershop audiences the annual Division and District contests and conventions. In addition, HARMONY SQUARE, a quartet from the Northern Division , was in the studio to sing for you. We thank Tim Snyder, Don Reckenbeil, Art Cole and Bill VanderHaar for bringing us the insight into their contest preparation and for bringing us their music.
We have scheduled live performances for some upcoming shows and invite you to mark your calendars for May 15th, when we will welcome a wonderful High School DooWop group called the Austinaires, who were one of the groups who were considered for the "Best of High School Acappella" groups this year. Father Ron Hamady and his 5 student members of the group will be in the studio on the 15th. We are also awaiting the acceptance of our invitation from Moonlighting, a great quartet from the Atlantic Division of the Mid Atlantic District of SPEBSQSA. We will be announcing the dates as soon as we confirm with the quartet.
