      For those of you who have loved acappella radio, and the live "APPLAUSE" Show with Rich Taylor and T J Barranger, this is a posting you should read from top to bottom.  It's long, but exciting and IMPORTANT!

      We are so excited about an announcement that the owner of Regional Broadcasting Services, the parent company of WVRM in Upper Montclair New Jersey made last Thursday night prior to the weekly broadcast of The "APPLAUSE" Show.  We want to share that announcement with you.

      As you know, in January of 2002, The "APPLAUSE" Show moved from a public broadcasting station in western NJ to WVRM Radio 1620AM, 91.9FM, and in north Jersey on Comcast Channel 34. The Internet access is at WWW.VILLAGERADIO.COM.  The owner of Regional Broadcasting Services is a fan of barbershop harmony and acappella music.  He offered The "APPLAUSE" Show a 4 1/2 hour slot making the show the longest single slot of radio dedicated to barbershop and acappella music.  He also said that after the show was on for a while, he would evaluate our audience and perhaps give us the opportunity to change the format of the radio station to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year Barbershop Harmony and A Cappella Music.

      Last Thursday, George Louvis, the CEO of Regional Broadcasting announced to us that he was ready to make that change for a trial period.  We are providing Mr. Louvis with the music of 60 artists from the barbershop harmony and contemporary acappella communities from which he will create a prerecorded rotating playlist which will be broadcast all day, EVERY DAY for all but the contracted times of other shows already on Village Radio (these amount to approximately 8 hours of broadcast time).  This programming change will take place as soon as the playlist is assembled.

      1. You will be able to access a 24-hour-a-day (with minor exceptions) to hear
             your favorite barbershop and acappella artists.
      2.  We will now be able to build other "APPLAUSE" type shows in any part
             of the world.  If your chapter or group wants to do a weekly "Live" radio
             show of your own, we will be able to "switch" from the studios of WVRM
             to anywhere in the world that has the appropriate equipment (we will
             provide those specifications)  Imagine:  "Live from (wherever)... the
             (name your show) Show featuring barbershop and/or acappella music.
      3.  We will be in a position to "Simulcast" any event with proper equipment
             in place... i.e.. The Buckeye Open, or the Harmony Sweepstakes, or
             (you name the event). 

      Now, what is necessary to develop this fully.  Well, first and foremost is the support of the barbershop and acappella communities.  We need to show Mr. Louvis that our organizations and our members will financially support this format change.  We will be  asking you, individually, your chapters, groups, and the major harmony organizations to make financial contributions to Regional Broadcasting to fund the broadcast of 24/7 Barbershop and Acappella.
      We will be offering advertising opportunities for companies that market to the acappella communities, including chapters and quartets and groups that have CD's to sell, or shows to promote, or events to promote. 

      Together, you, our listeners, and the APPLAUSE Team can make this the most exciting opportunity for all concerned...a truly "Win-Win" situation.

      Stay Tuned for more on this throughout the next month.  If you have not contributed to the show, go to our web page at www.harmonize.com/applauseshow and find out how you can support the show.

      This week we were all set to have a live appearance by Yankee Dime, a wonderful quartet from the Big Apple Chorus, winners of the 2002 Rahway Novice Contest and qualifiers at the 2002 Mid Atlantic District Contest. Well, unfortunately, the snow and the weather has put the tenor and lead out of commission for now.  We hope to have the quartet in the studio live at another time, and may actually have a visit from one of their members.  We will keep you posted.

      The Acappella Showcase will take place on Saturday, May 17th, 8:00PM at the Montclair High School in Montclair, NJ.  The show will be a fund-raiser for Regional Broadcasting (to help replace equipment lost in the infamous lightning strike) and The "APPLAUSE" Show, listener supported since  I produced the first show in 1997.  We are looking for 2-3 barbershop groups and 2-3 acappella groups to participate.  All artists will be paid, and we request that any interested groups send their bio, sample CD, and your required fee to us at:
