Radio shows featuring artists from Jersey, introducing new music and standing up for the ’80s



originally published: 12/22/2021

(BELMAR, NJ) – In addition to posting articles and news on the arts in the Garden State, New Jersey Internship also organizes – a music-focused online site that includes content from around the world and several recorded radio shows. Longtime DJ of The Stone Pony Lee Mrowicki brings you “Radio Jersey” and “Beyond the Palace” – two shows with a New Jersey premise. Danny Coleman, who writes the weekly “Rock On” column for New Jersey Stage, also has his Rock on Radio show here every week. Mike Marrone, Sean Carolan and Matt Barker have shows largely based on presenting new music. And Gary Wien, the editor of New Jersey Stage, has three different shows – one on Jersey music, one on new music, and one on the ’80s.

Wien, who published Asbury’s first book on the history of music (Beyond the Palace) in 2003 and gave his choices for the Top 100 New Jersey Artist Albums 2001-2010, offers a unique take on New Jersey music with “Classic Jersey”. It’s a show that mixes tunes from some of New Jersey’s biggest stars with newbies or long forgotten ones.

“This is a special marathon edition of Classic Jersey,” explained Gary Wien. “This is a look at then and now” on about 40 artists with one track from the start of their careers and one released within the last 5-6 years. In many cases, there is a recent version from this year or last year. The artists on this playlist are largely those I interviewed from my Beyond the Palace book at Upstage Magazine and New Jersey Stage. I have no idea why I do things like this, but it was great looking through the archives to find the show. “

Artists in classic swimsuits: episode 12 include Mister Reality, Williams Honor, Bruce Springsteen, James Deely & the Valiants, Anthony D’Amato, Red House, Bruce Tunkel, Mimi Cross, Val Emmich, Bob Burger, The Weeklings, Glen Burtnik, Christine Martucci, Whirling Dervishes, Dramarama, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes, Dipsomaniacs, Successful failures, Rick Barry, Linda Chorney, Jon Caspi, Jon Caspi & the First Gun, The Gaslight Anthem, Brian Fallon, The Commons, Keith Monacchio, George Wirth, Arlan Feiles, Well of Souls , Tom Kanach, Matt O’Ree, Bon Jovi, Michael Brett, The Milwaukees, Souls’ Release, The Wag, Don Lee, Michael Patrick & the Suburban Hillbillies, Michael Patrick, Lisa Bouchelle, Lisa Bouchelle & the Bleu, James Dalton, Brian Fitzpatrick, Brian Fitzpatrick and the Band of Brothers, Tommy Strazza, Anthony Walker, Joe D’Urso and Stone Caravan, Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul, Nicole Atkins, Mike June & the Dirty Doves, Mike June and Red Wanting Blue.

The Complete Classic Jersey Show is available in a 5 hour program. It is also available in two parts, each lasting approximately 2.5 hours. The first part is available here and the second part is available here.

His new music show is called “Lighty’s Corner” and it largely features songs released in recent months with a few cuts over the years dotted in between. There are a lot of artists from the New Jersey / New York area, but also songs from all over the world – often independent artists that you won’t hear anywhere else.

Episode 12 contains pieces of The Two Man Traveling Medicine Show, Successful Chess, Mimi Cross, Willie Nile, Val Emmich, Jack Skuller, The Leylines, James Deely, The Alarm, Don Lee, Fantastic Cat, Cranston Dean, David & David, Mick Smith, Snez, John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band, Bruce Tunkel, Go-Go’s, TOIGO, Tiny Fighter, Joe Pesci, The Orphan’s Project, Bombardier Jones, Skating Polly – Hollywood Factory, Sonofdov, Stay For Tomorrow, Jonas Carping, Lisa Bouchelle & The Bleu , and Bruce Springsteen.

“My last show is called Bring Me The Head of Max Headroom and features rock music from the 1980s,” Wien explained. “The 80s still got a bad rap from a lot of music fans, but there was a lot of great music being made back then. I think someone has to stand up for 80s rock and that just might be. me. If you were someone who grew up with MTV and the dawn of college rock / alternative rock you will probably enjoy the show. I try to include hits, duds, classic nuggets and obscure tracks in every episode. “

Bring Me The Head Of Max Headroom: Episode 12 Contains Pieces Of Scandal, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Cult, The Replacements, The Gregg Allman Band, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Clash, Crowded House, The Connells, The Hooters, The Waterboys, Violent Femmes, Kate Bush, U2, REM, XTC , The Call, Firetown, The Smiths, Tonio K., The Romantics, Joe Jackson, The Psychedelic Furs, Flesh for Lulu, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, The Alarm, INXS, Jules Shear, Traveling Wilburys, The Police and Peter Gabriel.
