"Sundays at the MEC" - 3/22 - The Stormy Weathermen!
On Sunday, March 22 from 3-5PM, KMEC-LP 105.1 FM welcomes a live performance by The Stormy Weathermen. This local Mendocino County-based band plays fun original instrumental tunes that sound like surf, rock, roots, blues, gypsy and Middle Eastern styles wrapped in spaghetti western ambiance. Nothing like it in Ukiah ... or thereabouts!
All of The Stormies' music is written by Andrew Robertson who also plays electric guitar. Electric bass is played by Dave Buerger, and drums and percussion are played by Sticks the Drummer. The Stormies have been gigging locally for several years at venues such as Ukiah Farmers Market, A Taste of Downtown Ukiah, First Friday Art Walk, Rivino Winery, Saucy Pizzeria, and Francis Ford Coppola Winery.
You can see and hear videos of The Stormies gigging at these venues on their website, http://TheStormyWeathermen.com. Join us and enjoy the eclectic electric ambiance of this highly talented band of local musicians!

Program and Schedule Changes!
What's the best and worst thing that could happen to a Program Director at a radio station? To have so many people who want to participate in creating programming that you have to decide what to do with "syndicated" or "canned" programming.
Wonderful because Community Radio is about community participation and interaction. The more live programmers the more the community is represented and diversity prevails. Tough because you then have to decide which of the phenomenal programs you've filled the schedule with either gets dropped or placed somewhere in the schedule that might make it less available to the majority of listeners (like after midnight).
We fortunately or unfortunately find ourselves in that place. With the edition of the Evening News and other new programs, either just started or soon to begin, I find myself having to make tough choices. I also find that I've been changing the schedule almost daily to accommodate the new programs. Often changing it again as my "sense" of what best compliments the program before or just afterwards is refined by listening to them in a block.
Please feel free to contact me here at the MEC and KMEC to give me your feedback on program changes or to make recommendations. Thanks, Ed Nieves. 707 234-3236
