Melody Reunion Party update!

Well folks, it's just under three weeks to go until the Melody Bar reunion party. Chris Jordan of the Home News wrote a quick article about our event in last weeks paper on Friday, and it's available online too. Just google "Melody Bar Reunion Party" and you'll find it. More press is on the way as we get closer.

I have put together almost five hundred photos of people and flyers for an amazing slide show you won't want to miss. A limited number of copies of the slide show will be available at the door so get there early! I just hope that the slide show will run on whatever hardware they have at the Loop, or we may spend the entire event looking at one photo of Matt's head.

I continue to get a flood of emails and calls from people all over who plan on attending, including a few from California, Ohio, Virginia and Florida. Keep digging up old contacts and spread the word.

I've come up with a few more people I haven't been able to contact, so I'm hoping someone reading this might be able to track some of them down. These include Eric Gladstone (LA?), Erica Petrovitch, Peter J. Ward, Lee D'Onofrio, Tommy Grimski (crazy Tommy to those who loved him), John Michael(resident artist), and Victor Malafronte (FLA?). Daniel Howard is currently living near Austin Texas. He apparently contacted Matt, but his contact info was lost. I'd really like to see him, so if you know him, let me know.

Of course one of the most important missing persons is Dani Day. Last I heard he was now officially a she and may have moved to Florida. Anyone with updated contact info please send the party info along and make sure he(she) makes it! It just wouldn't be the same without Dani!

A good place to look for lost souls is on the Rutgers alumni website. If you are a Rutgers grad, then you can access this site and search by name, class year and major. Many of the Melody crowd went to Rutgers, so if you have name, or just a last name, you might be able to find them in the Rutgers database. I have found many people this way, some who didn't even know they were listed!

Another great place to try is It's free, and if the person's phone is publicly listed, you can find them anywhere in the US.

If any of you have a name but can't access the Rutgers database, just send it to me at and I'd be happy to search for you.

Oh and by the way, it looks like the event is going to be videotaped, so copies of that will likely be available.

Stay tuned to for more updates as the date approaches.

I'll see you on the 17th!

Please Look At Our Advertisers (Or The Website Gets It)
Congratulations, you've found the hidden text.
Welcome to, also available at and Here's where the remaining listeners of several fine radio stations have retreated, regrouped, and built a replacement strong enough to stand on its own. It builds on the independent legacy of New Jersey's FM106.3, New York's WPIX and WLIR, Oklahoma's 105.3 The Spy, the pre-buyout mindset of KROQ, WBCN and WHFS and of every other alternative station that was destroyed at a moment's notice - not because they weren't making money, but because there was bigger money to be found elsewhere.
We've stood by as truly independent alternative rock radio died. Sure, something called "alternative" took its place, but we know for sure that anything that "tests well" with soccer moms just ain't alternative. (Even if some of us happen to be soccer moms.) So we've taken matters into our own hands.
This really is independent alternative rock radio, visible here at and audible at our web radio station. It has the classic music that fired our passions back in the day - or that we maybe only heard about from our elders - but it's mostly made of the new music that does precisely the same for us now. We're paying attention to scenes all over the world, watching the energy build, and waiting to see what it creates. Wherever it happens, we'll make sure you can hear about it here. We've been slowly building all this since 2001, and now that you've noticed us, we're glad you're here.
Of course, it's only here because you want it to be here, and it can only stay if you help it along - especially by checking out our advertisers (they support us) and by listening (the more that listen, the more visible we are.) Please use the "feedback" link above to let us know whether it works for you, and what you want it to be as the future unfolds. (And if you need help hearing it, let us know that, too.)
