header

As of noon today (Thusday, October 1), Journal Broadcast Group changed the format of 106.7 FM. Z106.7, the main competition in the modern-rock segment with Q102.1 FM, has now been replaced with 106.7 The River. The River will be a jockless, music-intensive station that will play the largest variety of any station in Springfield, with songs spanning 5 decades from the 60’s to now. We have more details about the switch after the break.

***UPDATE: We’ve included the official press release from the station after the break, as well.***

Like what we’re doing? Please help us help you help us help you…

July 28, 2009

Dare I say it, but the “scene” is growing. That’s thank to a lot of hard work from bands, venues, and promoters. I mean seriously, look at all the freakin’ touring acts and national acts we’re getting now ‘a days—I’ve NEVER seen this many bands come through this town…EVER. So thank the promoters, venues, sound guys, bartenders, door guys, etc. Most importantly thank  YOU for visiting our little site as often as you do (hopefully every day) and please keep it up. We’re needing a little help though. Chris and I are hard workin’ our day jobs due to lack of any cash, so there may be a little dip in posts here and there. That’s because we can’t spend hours and hours each day scouring the interwebs like we normally do. This is where we need your help. And we DO need your help. We think this is pretty important, so please click through and read on and pitch in.

Rock Talk (5/31/09): Matt Browning (formerly of Brand of Freak), Kathryn for Sounds on the Square & Storyline

June 1, 2009

kzrqrocktalklogo1

We rarely know what we’re in for when we settle in for Z 106.7’s Rock Talk, but this past Sunday’s episode was probably the most unpredictable we’ve had since the slightly infamous anniversary episode. Not only did we have our guests on in the reverse of the order intended, we had one guest (Matt Browning, Brand Of Freak‘s former drummer) whom we cannot explain how he’s even alive, another unplanned guest who floored us, a completely seat-of-the-pants Four from The FourFour (thank God DeRosh’s car is a rolling jukebox full of CDs), the Urban District Alliance’s Kathryn Vicat-Dlabach explaining why she’s a hit in dive bars, never-before-heard songs from Storyline and more. We’re not quite sure how it all happened, but it did. Relive it after the break.

Rock Talk (4/5/09): Local Music Appreciation episode! 2 full hours of local music (18 songs)

April 6, 2009

kzrqrocktalklogo1

So last Saturday was April 4, or 4/4, or FourFour. We wanted to do some huge event, but A) no money and B) no time…BUT also a secret C) we ARE working on a few big events that we’ll let you know a bit more about in the upcoming weeks. But we had this crazy idea for this week’s episode of Rock Talk, local music appreciation. You know you can always tune in to 106.7 on Sunday nights at 10 for over an hour of Rock Talk for interviews, updates, live studio performances…and of course music! We love this, but there’s only one problem. We can usually only fit in a few acts an episode. There sooooo much more going on that that. So we felt it would be a good idea to play as much music as we could to give people a glimpse at all the fantastic music we have in our little city.

In this episode, 106.7’s local show, Rock Talk goes for a full 2 hours straight! We play 18 songs! Two hours of local music on the radio! 2 HOURS PEOPLES! We have the whole episode and band list after the jump. Listen in and tell some friends cuz this is one for the books (and only the first of many). More details…

Rock Talk (3/22/09) with guests Chris Aytes and Daniel Maple

March 26, 2009

kzrqrocktalklogo1

We apologize for the delay, but WordPress seems to be having some difficulties with the audio file upload system. Well, hopefully this solution will work just fine.

This week we had Chris Aytes stop by. He let us in a some new tracks and performs a few tracks live in the studio. (We super-dig that new track Chris). He also spills the beans on the cause of the band’s temporary hiatus. After Chris, we were joined by Daniel Maple (a.k.a. Johnny Bukkake) of the Never Saints and Urban Legends to name just a few of the many bands and projects he’s involved in. Daniel is hilarious as always, jams a few songs on acoustic, including a Tom Waits cover (nice!). He also made up a Rock Talk theme song ON THE SPOT and it rocks. Listen in because this was a fun one folks.
