Editor’s Note: We received the following notice from OpenPR.com. RadioSanAntonio.com has joined forces with noted performer, producer, and promoter Nikki Young to launch a new program with a special live event. The Digital Open Mic Night Show,
a showcase for Texas music, will premiere in its regular time slot from 6-8pm on Sunday, January 8, with a live broadcast from Sam Ash Music Store in San Antonio. Hosted by Young, the series will feature music by local artists and combine news, reviews, interviews, as well as updates on area concerts and plenty of in-studio performances from area artists of all genres. The premiere event will also feature tons of giveaways, complimentary munchies, and live performances from SA favorites The Tim & Bob Show, Laura Marie, and The Krayolas.For Jay Tope, Program Director at RadioSanAntonio.com, Young – a fixture in San Antonio radio, with frequent guest appearances on KONO and KTSA – is a natural fit for the growing Internet radio station. “Besides having a natural presence on radio,” he explains, “Nikki has a presence in the arts scene here in San Antonio. And as a promoter, she understands how the Internet and social networking are transforming the way musicians and listeners connect with each other. So we’re very excited that she’ll be bringing her energy and expertise to RadioSanAntonio.com.” “Texas has long been a center for musical invention,” Young (a former board member and event coordinator for the Texas Music Coalition) says. “From pop to punk, from country to conjunto, every genre of music has been touched by artists and innovators from this state. This show will be an opportunity to introduce listeners to some of those innovators, to music that has been relatively untapped by broadcast radio. And given that more and more of us are discovering music through the click of a mouse, RadioSanAntonio.com is a perfect fit for the show. I’m thrilled to be working with Jay on this new venture.” In support of the new show, Sam Ash General Manager Jon Johansen has announced that the store will extend its closing time to 8pm on January 8. “We’re proud to support
Nikki and RadioSanAntonio.com in their new show,” he says, “and we encourage everyone to come to the store that evening to support them and the local music scene.” Musicians interested in having their music featured on upcoming shows can either drop off CDs at the event, email mp3 files to firstname.lastname@example.org, or snail mail materials to: Digital Open Mic Night c/o Nikki Young 6338 N.
