“Curtain Up” host Aurelia Nelson

Tomorrow (Sunday) at 9AM Aurelia Nelson Welcomes Schooner Festival Chair Daisy Nell and Capt. Stan on her North Shore 104.9FM Radio show “Curtain Up”.

And here’s the definitive answer to Joey’s question about the Lobster Bake (from the Schooner Fest website)

Schooner Festival Lobster Bake

Two years ago, local blogger Capt. Joey of GoodMorningGloucester came up with a great idea!  Joey suggested that, in order to get the Gloucester community involved with the Schooner Festival, a community lobster bake should be held during the Festival.

Recognizing good advice, the Festival Committee held the 1st annual Community Lobster Bake in 2013 and it was a huge success!  Check out GoodMorningGloucester to see just how successful the event was!

The Community Lobster Bake will be held again in 2014 on Saturday, August 30, 4:30pm-7:30pm at Maritime Gloucester on Harbor Loop in downtown Gloucester. Enjoy freshly steamed lobster, corn on the cob, and a Virgilio’s roll– all for $15 per person. Relax with your dinner on the slopes of the Fitz Henry Lane lawn while listening to Old Cold Tater & Friends. Also available for sale: hot dogs, hamburgers, cookies, cold sodas & spring water, beer & wine. Tickets available in advance from Maritime Gloucester or at the event.

Aurelia Nelson Gives Chazz Palminteri Sista Felicia’s Cookbook

A Bronx Tale is in my top 10 all time movies, my favorite scene was in the bar when the bikers came in and Chazz delivers the classic line- “Now Youse Can’t Leave.”  You gotta watch the YouTube clip of that scene just below this picture.

Local Star Chelsea Berry on Curtain Up Tomorrow (SUN) @ 9am 104.9FM

Following her trend of interviewing local and national rock stars, Aurelia Nelson is hosting Chelsea Berry on her “Curtain Up” show tomorrow (Sunday) at 9am on North Shore 104.9FM.

Chelsea is back from a her national tour and will be performing Friday (7/25) at Cape Ann Marina’s Waterfront Pavilion (the BIG tent).  There are still seats available and you can get tickets here.

We know we live in a very special music community when someone who made her name in Gloucester comes back from a national tour and remembers where she got her start by appearing on local radio and performing in local venues.

Aren’t you glad you live here?

Just in case you don’t know who Chelsea Berry is, check out this video of her at Shalin Liu:

Get away from the computer, but stay in the know anyhow

Aurelia Nelson @ Jalapenos

Tomorrow (SUN) morning at 9:00 A.M., on Aurelia Nelson’s 104.0 FM radio show Curtain Up, Peter gives us a rundown of Gloucester’s early Summer event highlights — yes, we know Summer doesn’t begin astronomically until the solstice (June 21 at 6:51 A.M.) but it’s sunny today, so we’re gonna push the season and call it Summer.

The cool thing about listening to a radio show like Curtain Up is that you don’t have to be sitting down at the computer to find out what’s going on.  You could be cleaning the house, weeding the garden, driving, cooking breakfast … or just sitting on the front porch with a cup of coffee … relaxing.

Get up early tomorrow (9am is 0-dark-hundred for us) and listen in so when your friends ask, “What is there to do up there in Gloucester?” you’ll have ready answers at the tip of your tongue.  Then, for last minute updates, you can always check our live music schedule here.

 

Having some fun with a radio ad and Adobe Premiere

Now we often fast forward through TV commercials or change the car radio station when an ad come on, but once in a while somebody crafts such a good radio spot that you can’t help but listen.  That’s what our friends Aurelia Nelson & Jay Foss at Northshore 104.9 did this week and I was so inspired when I heard it that I decided to pop into Adobe Premiere and have some fun.  This is what came out:

And by the way, there are still good seats left to what could be your last chance to see these young, rising blues stars before they break into big venues.  Get them here.

Did you miss Henri Smith & Aurelia Nelson’s banter on Sunday? Listen right here and get in on the scoop!

These two tease each other like brother and sister!

Aurelia Nelson and Henri Smith have loads of fun on this show and it truly comes across.  Henri starts off singing,  Aurelia accuses him of not knowing the words to songs, all the while hidden meanings to New Orleans favorites are revealed.  Plus you’ll get a hint of some special music planned for his upcoming concert featuring Grammy Award winners Charles Neville & Amadee Castenell.  

Listen here and join in the fun!

The best radio Christmas shows you’ll hear this year ~ SUN 12/22 @9AM & 7PM on 104.9

Curtain Up host Aurelia Nelson

We’ve pointed out before that North Shore 104.9 host Aurelia Nelson frequently features local talent on her show, “Curtain Up” (see examples here).  This Sunday 12/22 she pulls out all the stops with her hyper-local Christmas show featuring some of Cape Ann’s top talent performing a Christmas repertoire that rivals what you’d hear on a big city radio show!

You’ll hear Dan King’s wonderful new Christmas song “Handmade With Love (Present)” featuring Charlee Bianchini, “I wish I Could Fly” written by Allen Estes & Fly Amero, new songs by Bryan Alex, John Stevens and Angie Miller (Beverly’s own Idol finalist) and selections by the Beantown Swing Orchestra.

We know you’ll be at Gloucester’s UU Church on Saturday night, where you can see many of these stars LIVE — and we promise the show will be over in plenty of time for you to get a good night’s sleep and get up by 9am for Curtain Up on North Shore 104.9.

Then on Sunday night at 7pm, you can hear a real radio play, “It’s a Wonderful Life.”  This is a rare experience you simply can’t get any other way.  Build a fire, sit together as a family in the living room, tune the radio to 104.9, chill in a comfy chair, close your eyes and lose yourself in this classic story.  When’s the last time you heard a radio play?

It’s worth getting up by 9am on Sunday to catch “Curtain Up” on 104.9

Just in case you haven’t noticed, North Shore 104.9’s “Curtain Up” host, Aurelia Nelson, has been inviting Cape Ann musians to be her guests more frequently of late and it points to a trend of featuring locals on the station as a whole (see some examples here).

Tomorrow (SUNDAY) at 9AM, she does it again, this time with Henri Smith. Henri will talk about all the special guest he has pull together for his New Orleans Christmas show at the Larcom Theatre.

Big announcement tomorrow (SUN) on Curtain Up 104.9 @ 9AM

Aurelia Nelson

Tomorrow at 9AM Peter will be Aurelia Nelson’s guest on her North Shore 104.9 radio show Curtain Up, where he will announce a one-night-only concert featuring a major national recording star and rock n’ roll icon at The Larcom Theatre down the road in Beverly.

If you’re already a member of our gimmeLIVE Concert Club, you’ll be notified when tickets go on sale before the general public is.  You can sign up here if you’re not a member.

Who is Malachy McCourt? Listen here and find out!

Malachy McCourt

Perhaps you’ve heard of his brother, Frank McCourt, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of best-sellers Angela’s Ashes,  ‘Tis and Teacher Man.  If you’ve read any of Frank McCourt’s books, you’ll feel like you know Malachy, who is one of the central characters — especially in Angela’s Ashes, which has been described as a tragicomic memoir of the misery and squalor of their childhood.  Here’s an excerpt from the beginning of Angela’s Ashes that will give an idea of the Brothers McCourt’s charm, wit and brutal honesty.

“When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I survived at all. It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while. Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood.”

After emigrating to the U.S., Frank & Malachy wrote the play, A Couple of Blaguards, which opens this Friday at the Larcom Theatre in Beverly (get tickets here).

On Sunday, North Shore 104.9’s Aurelia Nelson interviewed Malachy on her show Curtain Up.  It’s loads of fun.  Listen here:

L-R: Curtain Up Host Aurelia Nelson, Sista Felicia, North Shore 104.9 owner Todd Tanger

Well … Aurelia Nelson found a clever way to host Sista Felicia on her North Shore104.9 radio show Curtain Up that features guests in music and theatre. But it wasn’t much of a stretch.  Anyone who’s ever seen Felicia in the kitchen knows that she puts on a great show.  She’s got star quality!

Sista Felicia’s Waterfront Festival tent on Friday

So get up early enough tomorrow (Sunday) to catch Aurelia Nelson interview Sista Felicia about her new cookbook at 9am and you’ll also get to hear Peter talk about how our Fall concert series is reviving The Larcom Theatre in Beverly.

In the meantime, you can bop down to the Waterfront Festival and check out Sista Felicia’s tent.

Watching her put the sides on is a good show in and of itself.

Just like last Sunday, it’s worth getting up by 9am to catch “Curtain Up” on 104.9

L-R: Chris Langathianos, Chris Trapper

Just in case you haven’t noticed, North Shore 104.9’s “Curtain Up” host, Aurelia Nelson, has been inviting Cape Ann rock stars to be her guests more frequently of late and it points to a trend of featuring locals on the station as a whole (see some examples here).

Tomorrow (SUNDAY) at 9AM, she does it again, this time with Festival By The Sea producer Chris Langathianos and headliner Chris Trapper.  You’ll get a sneak preview of festival highlights and hear Chris perform.  Definitely worth getting up for — even if you stay out late at tonight’s Block Party.

And just in case you’re not quite sure which of tonight’s excellent shows to catch, here’s a list of all live music to help you decide.

Get up by 9am tomorrow to hear Allen Estes on the radio

AureliaDylanAllen

Aurelia Nelson with Allen Estes (R) & his son, Dylan

North Shore 104.9 host Aurelia Nelson interviews Allen Estes on her radio show, “Curtain Up”, tomorrow at 9am.  Aurelia and Allen talk about Gloucester’s exploding local music scene — and Allen’s TV show that promotes it (see here).  (See Allen Estes Videos here.)

Plus they preview major musical events in Gloucester and Cape Ann and you’ll hear some of Allen’s new music.

It’s worth getting up for.  And once you’re up, you can take advantage of the live music starting at 11AM, with new shows starting practically every hour and going on through the wee hours.  Check out the complete music schedule here.
