    Our dear friend Murray Saul was one of the few people with advance knowledge of oWOWnow.com. A little over a year ago Murray told us what he would like to do on oWOW. We promised Murray his request would be fulfilled when oWOW became a reality.

    Regrettably, Murray never got to see and hear the debut of oWOW. He passed away one year ago, on May 19th. But what was promised to Murray will be fulfilled.

    Listen to oWOW this Friday at 5 PM. as Murray returns to launch the Memorial Day weekend in the tradition all Northeast Ohio expects.

  • CYO & Graham Nash

    CYO and Graham Nash June 5th

    Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash is pleased to announce an evening with Contemporary Youth Orchestra (CYO) for a shared concert on Friday, June 5, 2015. The event will take place at 8:00pm at Severance Hall in Cleveland, Ohio as part of the CYO's Rock the Orchestra Concert Series. Tickets go on sale March 7, 2015 at 10am Eastern Standard Time through www.cyorchestra.org/tickets.

    Graham Nash will perform with the 115-member CYO and 65-member Chorus filled with musicians ages 14-18 from 64 school districts throughout Ohio. Nash will be the 15th participant in the Rock The Orchestra series which has featured many notable past performers, including Ben Folds, Jon Anderson (Yes), Styx, Pat Benatar, Jefferson Starship, and Bootsy Collins.

    This year, CYO - the only youth orchestra in the country devoted to contemporary music - is celebrating its 20th Anniversary. CYO founding music director Liza Grossman says she sought Graham Nash because 'Graham's passionate voice has supported peace and social justice for decades. His music transcends generations, and the musicians in CYO want to be part of his powerful messages."

  • CD Review: John Garcia - John Garcia

    John Garcia


    For many of you, the name John Garcia doesn't mean a whole lot. I get that. For some of us - people that have long loved the world of Stoner Rock and Metal, John Garcia is every bit the musical God that people like Ronnie James Dio, Rob Halford and Bruce Dickinson are in the world of "classic metal". With Kyuss alone, Garcia quite literally defined exactly what this genre is supposed to sound like. His post-Kyuss projects all ventured in slightly different directions and showcased an uncanny ability to add more and more to an already brilliant musical style. For the first time since Kyuss, Garcia seemed to truly put every creative thing together perfectly with Vista Chino. Much like artists do though, he immediately ventured away from that to do something again a bit different and much more personal to him. That project is the simple, self titled JOHN GARCIA. While it's not quite as accessible as Vista Chino was to the every day fan, this might just be his best work yet. The legend continues.

  • CD Review: Black Label Society - Catacombs Of The Black Vatican

    Black Label Society


    When Zakk Wylde decides to release new music, the metal world definitely stops for a moment and listens. They may not like it all, but they do listen. It's a testament to how unbelievable the man is on guitar; a true legend who stands shoulder to shoulder with the Eddie Van Halen's and Dimebag Darrell's of the world of guitar playing. If Zakk has a habit though, it's to release an album that's dull every once in awhile. It doesn't happen all the time, but it certainly has been known to happen. SHOT TO HELL was pretty lame, and 1919 ETERNAL was a little too full of concept instead of substance. Still, the last two releases, ORDER OF THE BLACK and the acoustic THE SONG REMAINS NOT THE SAME left me thinking that Wylde was back to his creative best, and caused a lot of anticipation for his latest. Unfortunately, CATACOMBS OF THE BLACK VATICAN just doesn't measure up. Slow, plodding and mid-tempo, the word that comes to mind throughout is boring.

  • CD Review: Various Artists - Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life

    Various Artists


    As much as I want to take this at face value, it's hard to not at least wonder just how many times Wendy Dio is going to visit the Dio well and mine more material culled from his past work. There's already been multiple live releases, deluxe reissues, an officially sanctioned band playing the music of Dio...and now second tribute collection of music from people other than Dio performing his work (the first being Jorn Lande's DIO release). I'm almost expecting a release of special rare interviews or voice mails to come at this point. Still, it's their business what they put out, and ours to merely judge it. So that said, we now have RONNIE JAMES DIO: THIS IS YOUR LIFE. While it has some real heavyweights performing on it, it's pretty much like every other tribute album you'll get. It's a hodge podge of covers. Some are good. Some aren't. Big surprise, right?
