The Big Takeover at WEXT
WEXT

It was a chilly afternoon last December when the rockin' reggae band from New Paltz called The Big Takeover worked their way up Interstate-87 to our little studios.  They packed all seven members into our studio.

Their latest album marks their ten year anniversary.  "Silly Girl" takes us on a trip to Jamaica for serious ska and reggae influences.  Hear the results of the session we did below.  

Farewell, Pretty City

Hello Dear Friend,

 

 

It's not easy to tell you this, but after 16 years of being on the radio every week, the final Hello Pretty City radio show will be in early November.

 

It's not WEXT...they are deeply kind and would gladly keep Hello Pretty City on the air. 

 

Rather, it's me.

 

ILONA
Artist

ILONA's voice fills any size room. She's got such power in her voice.  We had a chance to catch up with this wonderful singer-songwriter. She's been recording, writing new songs, and putting out some singles and playing at some festivals. Have a listen. We love having ILONA with her bandmates, Tony Moore (of Cutting Crew and Iron Maiden) and KT Parker.

Kathy Mattea at WEXT
WEXT

A few years ago, Kathy Mattea was finding that her voice wasn't what it once used to be. It was a cause for serious concern.  After some digging and investigation, she ascertained the change in her voice was something occurring along with the onset of menopause and aging.  She took some advice, and found a new voice teacher.  

After some work and practice, she found the sound for her voice. The result was her new album, "Pretty Bird."

She's at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, tonight.
