Baltimore Magazine has me blushing
The June issue of Baltimore Magazine has a lovely little shout out to Baltimore Unsigned, the local music show I host on WTMD. The show is No. 69 on B-Mag's list of 101 Things To Eat, See & Do Before You Die.
Since the list isn't online yet (probably because it's not June), here is what the blurb says ...
Every Tuesday night, Sam Sessa welcomes a local band to WTMD's Baltimore Unsigned, which highlights a wide-ranging array of the area's best artists, from jazz singer Felicia Carter to indie rockers Wye Oak. The show gets extra credit for posting in-studio performances on its website and facilitating last year's cross-genre collaboration between local folkie Caleb Stine and hip-hop emcee Saleem.
In the nearly three years I've been hosting Baltimore Unsigned, I've had some amazing experiences. Seeing some of the regions best bands perform live in studio and then sitting down with them for an interview is truly thrilling.
The show has grown by leaps and bounds, thanks to generous grants from the Baltimore Community Foundation and the William G. Baker Memorial Fund. I'd like to thank God and my wife and my mom. Hee hee.
Seriously though, the show would not be possible without producer Nick Jackson and engineer Ryan Glaeser. Nick and Ryan, I can't thank you enough. And I can't wait to see where Baltimore Unsigned goes from here.
