The End of the Road.. Sort of..

Hey Guys..
With my lack of updates I am not sure who is actually reading this, but I have some news.. Last week's show was actually the last episode of Domestic Disturbance.. This is not bad news though, starting this weekend I have a new radio show on K-Rock in NYC.. its along the same lines as the show I have been doing for the last 4 years with a few changes.. the new show will be airing on K-Rock with a bonus hour airing on Krock2. com right after the show.. 2 hours, lots more music.. lots more fun. Also I'm really excited because Neil is going to be helping me out and co-hosting the second hour of the show with me.. Below is a little blurb and this week's playlist (not in order) that they sent out as well as the press release about the show.. If you have stuff that you think I should be playing on the show let me know..

B Local our New York music show premieres this Sunday on K-Rock and K-Rock2. As you can read in much more detail in the attached press release, B Local will be hosted by Mike Dubin and feature music from the boroughs, Long Island, New Jersey, Upstate New York, and Connecticut, with a special emphasis on indie label, self-released, and unsigned artists. B Local will be a platform for any of your artists who hail from and make music in the what is universally hailed as the world's greatest local music scene: New York F*@in' City.

Spotlight to Shine on New York Area Bands Starting Sunday, July 27

Local musicians around the New York area will have a new weekly outlet to showcase their music, as 92.3 K-Rock launches a new weekly program, B Local, broadcast Sunday nights (9:00-10:00PM) on-air and online at www. 923krock. com.
The program, which debuts Sunday, July 27, will feature music from the rock genre and all its sub-genres by artists from the tri-state area. The show's title is a nod to the mass transit system that connects the boroughs and the surrounding area, and its slogan will be: "Hear local, See local, B Local."

B Local will be hosted and produced by Mike Dubin, a 15-year veteran of the New York music scene. The Long Island native has worked with area bands as a photographer, graphic designer, A&R scout, and is founder of multiple independent labels. He hosted K-Rock's previous local music show, "Domestic Disturbance", which was broadcast on-air from 2004-06, and has since run on K-Rock2, the station's alternative online stream. A special two-hour version of B Local will run three times a week on K-Rock2.

"New York is going through another great musical renaissance, maybe the best one yet," said K-Rock Program Director Mike Tierney. "We arguably have the best local music scene in the world right now. The depth and breadth of music is truly amazing. K-Rock needs a show that reflects that and B Local needs a host whose vision is as big and as broad as the music is, someone who can be equal parts music fan, broadcaster, cheerleader, and ambassador to the people making the music. Mike Dubin is all of that. We are lucky to have him on our team, and thrilled about having him behind the microphone."

Dubin said, "I am excited that K-Rock is bringing local music back to New York radio. There are so many great artists emerging from the local scene and this show will be a great outlet to showcase their talents. B Local is the perfect place for music fans to discover up and coming artists that may have previously flown below the radar."

Archive & Playlists

Hey Guys,
I received an email last night from Blogspot asking me to remove the show archive. There were apparently complaints from labels regarding some of the artists included in the shows available on my site. I love the idea of making the past shows available for all of you, but I do need to respect the wishes of the artists and because of that I decided to remove the past shows from the site. At some point I may re-post the playlists without the links to download episodes, but for the time being I've decided to remove the pages all together.. Remember you can always listen to my new show online, Sunday, Tuesday & Thursday from 10-Midnight on

Thanks for your support
