      Hi there fans of barbershop and acappella music;

      We celebrate TWO Birthdays this week.  April 11th was the date the Barbershop Harmony was founded on the rooftop of the Alvin Hotel in Tulsa Oklahoma.  26 men gathered and started the evening's songfest with a rendition of "Down Mobile".  This week we celebrate the 65th birthday of that historic meeting.

      This is also the week that marks the 6th year I have been bringing you the best in acappella and barbershop music on the radio as the host of The "APPLAUSE" Show.  Most of you know I started the "APPLAUSE" Show in April of 1997 at a public radio station in Hunterdon County, N.J., and moved the show to WVRM in January of 2001.  I am proud to be the originator of the show and the continuing host of what has become one of the most popular radio shows throughout the acappella world.  I want to thank all of the artists that have made this radio broadcast possible.  And I want to thank all of our loyal listeners who have stayed with the show  during all of our growth and changes.  We are currently the longest single radio time-slot with a dshow featuring barbershop harmony and accappella music.  WVRM and it's owner, Regional Broadcasting Services are committed to the long term promotion of our kind of music.  So Happy Birthday to the show and your 6 years of support.

      My goal as a broadcast promoter is to create a network which will bring you LIVE radio shows from around the world ...every day of the week.  You know, there are almost 80,000 people in the world that call themselves "acappella and barbershop" singers.  The barbershop and acappella communities have organized groups in cities and towns throughout the world, on all time zones, and we believe there is an interest in hearing live shows throughout the week from all around the world.  WVRM is poised to bring this kind of broadcast variety to you.  Imagine, being able to turn on your computer and hear live radio shows and events from around the world.  Imagine emailing, or calling your favorite "personality" in another part of the country or around the world and interracting with that host about their show.  And finally, how great would it be to be able to hear great barbershop and acappella events, like the Harmony Sweepstakes Finals, or maybe the Bolton Landing or the Buckeye Barbershop Festivals, or maybe the annual show of your favorite chorus, or even a performance of your favorite acappella artists during a tour in a part of the country our of your traveling reach........a full Acappella Network there to present great music to you, the audience that appreciates this type of music.

      And how surprised would you be if I told you that we could create that kind of network for less than $1.00 per year from all of those 80,000 people who are registered as members of their respective harmony organizations.  But that is the reality... we are working right now to build the financial base to get the Network up and running.  If your group, chapter, or you as an individual would like information on how to help in this effort, please go to our website at:
      www.harmonize.com/applauseshow to find out the ways you can support this effort.

      We debited a feature on the show this week called "The Great Quartets" which highlights the life and music of great quartets and acappella groups.  Grady Kerr and Strawhat Productions in Dalls have made this feature possible.
