And the hits keep coming! This has been the busiest January since we started WTIM. At this pace we’ll need a full page for the summer months! Welcome to new friends John and Kass Bolles they’ll be playing at the West End Alley this week as well as several other venues in the near future. Steve Walker is taking a run at the busiest act in Berks County but friend Jim Meck is hanging on to that title tight which is good for everyone’s listening pleasure. Joining Steve and Jim are Stephanie Grace, Hillbilly Shakespeare, Chestnut Grove, Levi Bone and 3 – D in this week’s line up. There are quite a few choices if you are going out and about, many of which provide quality, local entertainment. Get out there and yell encouragement for your favorite band OR maybe go out find a new one. The thing is to just get out there! Bands love to play to an audience!

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.

Tim Dietterick is the circulation manager for Berks-Mont Newspapers.
