A “best” from Metroland!

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

This past Thursday Metroland named Hello Pretty City as “Best Indie Rock Radio Show” of 2010! I was smiling and beaming all day! To read the little write up click here and then scroll way down!

More importantly, I think of you and me and how sometimes Hello Pretty City seems like more than just a radio show. It’s a feeling…a smile…a toe tapping…a gratefulness. And it wouldn’t feel this way without you…smiling, toe tapping, and listening.

Thank you for being a listener of Hello Pretty City. (And thank you Metroland!)

First show on 97.7 is coming up in 5 days! And Radio Mogadishu

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Hey there! The first Hello Pretty City show on Exit 97.7 is nearly here! I even know what the first song is going to be! I’m starting to pick out songs for upcoming shows, too. Last week I checked out the newest Ben Kweller album from the library and I really like it.

Today I read a great story about Radio Mogadishu in the New York Times. Here’s the link: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/30/world/africa/30mogadishu.html

It’s official! Starting Sunday, April 4, 2010, Hello Pretty City will be on Sundays from 8-10pm on Exit 97.7, WEXT.

If you’re in the Capital District you can tune in on 97.7fm. Or if you’re anywhere you can stream it online at www.exit977.org.

It’s an honor to be on Exit 97.7!

Today is my last show on WRPI

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

I’m sad to write this to you: Today is my last show on WRPI, 91.5fm. But there is happy news: Hello Pretty City is moving to WEXT, 97.7fm and online at www.exit977.org!!!

The new day and time slot will be decided soon and I will write it here when I know. I hope that the first show on WEXT will be next week. I hope you will consider coming to the Hello Pretty City concert this Friday night at Valentines. Four amazing bands will be there to help us celebrate seven years of Hello Pretty City: Brown Bird, The Charlie Watts Riots, Pony in the Pancake, and The Landlines. Starts at 8 and costs $8. It will feel good to be there!

Please, kind listener, know that I’m not leaving WRPI for any reason other than my schedule is changing and I need to be at work on weekday mornings. I am truly thankful to be able to find a way to continue doing the radio show, even though it will be on another station.

The staff, students, and community members of WRPI have shown me the utmost kindness, sincerity, and support during this process. (When you listen to WRPI, keep an ear open for my voice, as I’m hoping to fill-in for other djs as needed, especially during the summer.)

Sad news and good news

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Sad news: My last show on WRPI, 91.5fm, will be next Tuesday, March 2.

Good news: Hello Pretty City is moving to WEXT, 97.7fm and online at www.exit977.org !!! The new day and time slot will be decided soon and I will write it here when I know.

Being a part of WRPI for the past seven years has been one of my favorite parts of living in Albany. I hope to keep my membership at the station so that I can do fill-in shows for other djs, as needed.

Thank you for coming here to read about this change. But most of all, thank you for listening to Hello Pretty City. I don’t know you personally but I think of you when I’m on the air and out and about. I hope you’ll be able to keep listening and if you’re available, come to the Hello Pretty City concert on March 5th at Valentines.

(Nippertown just wrote a sweet little article about Hello Pretty City moving to WEXT.)
