Big WTIM doings this week. We’ll be at The Turning Leaf Fall Festival helping deliver sound to the beautiful Boyertown Park. Lots of our friends like Black Hat Boris, Middle Class Madness, Stephanie Grace, Yolanda Spohn and Comfort Zone will be there as well! Friends DJ Gary, 3 – D, Me Against Me and new friends The Tributes will be serving up awesome portions of local music this time. The good folks over at the Half Moon Caf้ (at Clay on Main in Oley) have started their concert programs for the season and we wanted to remember to send them out a special mention. Rounding out the special mentions this week is the dynamic group of volunteers at Listen Live Music over in Macungie. No one puts more into promoting local music than these guys. AND some words on another subject (it is related, because Chris IS as good a musician as he is a chef) Thanks Chris Dietz at CD’s Place in Boyertown! I have found my new favorite burgers! Go see for your self – and then get out there and ROCK!

Do you want to see your band or venue listed here at WTIM send an email to tdietterick@21st-centurymedia.com with the particulars (at least 2 weeks in advance) and we’ll get it out there.
