Hello lovely listeners of ListenerLand! In case you haven't heard, the 2013 Summer Marathon Series will begin on Thursday, May 9th from 7am until 1am with 18 hours of the Goo Goo Dolls! The lineup this year is a very exciting one, arguably one of the most exciting ones to date! Below you will find the first bunch of them in order, so go on and mark your calendars! The second leg of the marathons will be released a little later on, but we assure you, they will be just as exciting as this first bunch! We hope you are all as excited as we are! Happy Marathon Season from WBWC to you!
“A band of hopefuls, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” That’s what the up and coming sextet, Lowly, the Tree Ghost, refers to themselves as. Formed in the Cleveland area, they have released four albums since their start in 2009. This indie, acoustic band prides themselves on standing out by bringing violins and entertaining lyrics into their songs. The violins give the band more of a folk sound and the co-vocalists Andrew Arbogast and Emily McKitrick push the band to produce its own identity. Their hits include “A Sight To Behold” and “Laughing Apple” off of their February 2010 release “Whatever Goes, Let It Go!” And their most recent release that took place in November of 2011, “For the Haunted”, brings more duet vocals and interesting lyrics, especially in a song like “Bear Facts and the Baklava Parade.” Be sure to tune into 88.3 The Sting to hear their most recent hit “Bear Facts and the Baklava Parade” and check them out on Facebook!
