Dirty South TV Intends to Change the Music Industry.
Dirty South TV, an online based music television network dedicated to airing music videos 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, with no commercials, intends to change the music industry by focusing on music, talent and the live interaction of its fans and members.
Atlanta, GA - April 24, 2009 Dirty South TV, an online music television network dedicated to airing music videos 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, with no commercials, intends to change the music industry by focusing on music and talent like Barry Richman, Andrew Black, Little G. Weevil, Liz Lee , and the many other top-of- the-line artists in the Atlanta, Georgia area who have been featured on Dirty South TVs hit TV show Live Sessions From The Dirty South aired every Monday evening from 7:00 to 11:00 P.M. Eastern Standard Time.
Dirty South TV is the brain child of founder Giuseppe Colato, who got tired of seeing reality TV show after reality TV show, commercials and infomercials on the music television networks. I wanted to create a real music television network because I think people deserve to have music in their lives. Weve got enough reality already, says Colato.
One thing that separates Dirty South TV from other music television networks is that the fans have a say in programming and all other aspects of the network. Additionally, previously undiscovered Artists will be the main feature. The Dirty South TV live interactive super portal will be the first Broadcast Format with Cable Television, Satellite Television, Satellite Radio, F.M. Radio and A.M. Radio soon to follow. Colato knows Dirty South TV will change the industry by focusing on music, homegrown talent and the music fans input and suggestions for growth avenues. Dirty South TV will literally be the first music-based company in the world to put the direction of the music industry in the music fans hands.
Dirty South TV, an Atlanta-based Music Television Network, has the kind of story not normally seen in the music television world that, as Colato says, is currently bullied by Viacom. Their mission is to bring the power of the people into the music scene. The people are the ones spending their hard earned money on all these artists and bands CDs and concert tickets and they should have the say so about who comes through their town own tour, Colato says. However, three major music television networks, three community based web-sites and one major blog web-site are standing in the way. I have done a lot of things that have made a lot of people proud of me and my accomplishments with this project. The problem is, its not enough; there is a lot more that still needs to be done. There are very few players that have all the control in the music industry and their direction of focus is only for the good of themselves--they could care less about all of the music fans that have lined those company execs pockets for decades now. Well, that nonsense is changing today! Dirty South TV has combined the best features of everything that has an impact on music and the music scene, plus it invites the fans ideas and opinions on every aspect.
If Colato gets his way, artists like Barry Richman, Andrew Black, Little G. Weevil and Liz Lee, with stories wide and varied, will become the norm in music television programming. Artists of this caliber will be featured on Monday evenings from 7:00 - 11:00 P.M. EST as part of the #1 weekly Music TV Show in the world for independent music, Live Sessions from the Dirty South.
Colato speaks of the extreme dedication of the Dirty South TV team. Fighting the worst economy in 90 years, weve had some of our people lose their homes, cars and in one case, both, during the research and development process of all of the features of Dirty South TV. And the first thing they say is this is going to be worth it-- this is the best thing that will ever happen to music."

The Firm FULL CIRCLE
Swampfreaks are a new band of old friends,
Based in the northeast of England, the home of many a rock star over the years.
(Brian Johnson, Sting and Paul Rodgers to name but a few).
The four piece carry on a tradition of good honest guitar based hard rock with just a hint
of the kind of humor the northeast is known for, a tongue in cheek view of life with all it's ups and downs.

BAD COMPANY TOUR 2009
BAD COMPANY ANNOUNCES 10 EXCLUSIVE
SUMMER CONCERT TOUR DATES
NEW BAD COMPANY HARD ROCK LIVE DVD
AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY AT SHOWS ON TOUR
IN-STORES AUGUST 8 (IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT)
Los Angeles.CA.. March 31, 2009 The original members of Bad Company have announced they will reunite for a series of 10 exclusive concerts in the ....U.S..... this summer. The opening show will take place at the Seminole Hard Rock in ....Hollywood.., ..FL.... on June 17 with select dates on the tour featuring The Doobie Brothers. Previously, founding members Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke (original member Boz Burrell passed away in 2006) performed a one-off concert at the very same venue on August 8, 2008, recording a live concert DVD before a sold-out crowd. The DVD, titled Bad Company Hard Rock Live will be available exclusively at shows during the concert run and is tentatively set for official release this summer, August 8, via Image Entertainment. Prior to their one performance in 2008, the band had not performed together in nearly a decade.
Rodgers, celebrating over four decades as a writing and recording artist (Free, Bad Company, The Firm, Queen + Paul Rodgers), released his debut solo DVD Live in Glasgow, which would go on to chart #1 and become certified Gold in Canada, as well as chart # 3 in the US and # 4 in the UK. Rodgers also released a new studio album titled The Cosmos Rocks with Queen + Paul Rodgers and capped 2008 with a sold-out Q+PR world tour. Most recently, Rolling Stone named Rodgers one of the Top 100 Singers of All Time and ....England....s Planet Rock Radio fan poll placed him at #3 on their Greatest Voices of Rock list. These dates are to thank the fans for keeping the music alive, said Rodgers. I invited my friends The Doobie Brothers because Ive always loved their music and them as people.
It's great to be back with Paul and Simon, said Ralphs. We made great music together and had the time of our lives doing it. I'm really looking forward to getting back out there this summer. Ralphs has announced plans to participate in five reunion shows with 70s rock band Mott the Hoople at the Hammersmith Apollo in ....London.... this October
We had such a ball playing together again that we have decided to do some selective shows this summer, said Kirke. Were also looking forward to the release of our live DVD.
Bad Companys multi-platinum hits such as Cant Get Enough, Feel Like Makin Love, Rock Steady, Movin On, Shooting Star, Rock & Roll Fantasy and Bad Company helped propel them to the forefront of the 70s arena rock movement. Rodgers concept to write a song titled the same as the bands name and album was a first. To this day, the multi-platinum Bad Co. album arguably remains one of the most accomplished debuts in rock history. Throughout the 70s Rodgers and Ralphs songwriting continued to yield hit after hit including Seagull, Run with the Pack, and Burnin Sky, making Bad Company one of the biggest concert attractions of the decade. The groups multi-platinum award-winning greatest hits set 10 from 6 has become a record collection staple.
