The show debuted 10/25/98 on 100.7 KSLX in Phoenix as a two-hour program,
and the first song was "Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles.
The weekend of October 24-25, we'll be featuring an entire theme show
with songs about storms (or at least titled that way).
Since Bob Dylan has some stormy tunes, he'll be featured in the Eye of The Storm.
Here's the line-up of featured Storm artists for October...
10/3-10/4 JOHN LENNON & THE BEATLES
10/10-10/11 NEIL YOUNG (Solo and with CSN)

So Mark emailed and called his favorite Miami station, Majic 102.7, asking them to consider adding The Acoustic Storm. Program Director Bill Stedman and Assistant PD Mindy Lang asked me for a demo of the program, and within two weeks The Acoustic Storm was added to the Majic broadcast schedule and now airs every Sunday morning from 6-10.
Thanks Mark, for proving that listeners still have a lot of say when it comes to their local radio station!

Program highlights in May include the annual Acoustic Storm Mother's Day show, as we'll roll out some "maternal" acoustic-rock with Pink Floyd's "Mother," plus music from Dylan & The Band, Mott the Hoople and a couple of tunes from The Beatles' "White Album."
On a personal note, the 5/9-5/10 Acoustic Storm is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Lynne T. Parets. Her birthday (May 11th) often fell on Mother's Day. A lot of my musical inspiration comes from Mom and her side of the family. My grandmother was an accomplished concert pianist and violinist, while Papa was a gifted opera singer.
Here's a look at May's scheduled artists in the Eye of The Storm...
5/2-3: STEVE MILLER
5/9-10: JEFFERSON AIRPLANE/STARSHIP Music Family
5/16-17: ROLLING STONES
