Porkified. Yes, Porkified. What does it mean? It goes beyond being a “cool one,” and spending decades listening to and following the Pied Piper of Pittsburgh. It’s about knowing, understanding, and admiring the man. The man, who decade after decade, genuinely and consistently displayed his kind and caring way, whether it was to help struggling artists who were turned away by the “mainstream” or having a life-long positive impact on tens of thousands of teenagers. Porkified is forever. We love you, Porky Chedwick. May God bless you and keep you.
One of the greatest albums of the decade thus far.
This man is an asset to Pittsburgh, he goes to nearly every concert, captures it, is a heck of an illustrator. My girlfriend and I make a game out of Hugh-spottings, yelling "I SEE HUGH!"
Great guy... and this music series is an apt way of celebrating TEN YEARS of service to the local music scene.
Interesting fact: he has an endless collection of hand-written lyrics by a plethura of bands.
This is a talented duo. Proud owner of the debut and having heard To The Far Blue Mountains can safely say they've outdone themselves. This is an album that should be a mainstay on WYEP. Really great stuff worthy of bigger things.

This article brings up some great points when it comes to musicians looking to get their music heard. In the past, and still today it's record labels that do the marketing. However, when it comes to unsigned Artists they are left with that job.. unless they find the right people to help them. Musicians often need to do much more than just write good music, record, and perform live.
" In that short time, the duo had found a way to deconstruct the folk songs she had written. Experimenting with Etienne's collection of vintage synths and jamming at all hours of the day and night, the two ended up with nine playful and compelling tracks that reflect a wide range of influences."
I wish WPTS published the song list after they play them, since they rarely announce what they played. I'm often in my car and hear something I like, and have no way to find out what it is.
This is a fantastic idea, Shadyside needs live music!
MIke Medved will be performing at the next "Art in a Box" Friday June 14, 7:30 pm at The DAP Co-Op for Dance, Arts, & Photography. www.dapcoop.com or go the events page on Facebook to see more about this event.

Hell yeah! Nice work Rory!
A true lesson in dedication and determination...Stay the course DZ.
Rosita: I was thinking later, you could kiss me on the veranda.
Dusty Bottoms: On the lips would be fine.
Ironic when the ego comes through the back door in a disguise of the (ignorant) righteous. Black Yoga makes perfect sense, contemporary drone music is structurally and even sonically linked to Kirtan, mantra chanting and indian classical music.
It can take a person deeper into their self; darkness needs to be explored.
One of the dopest and lyrical groups of this generation!...I stamp and approve The Wulords and their movement!
Peace, love, and respect to the entire Wulord camp!! Great article!!! S/o @ Undalrds, Z1, Lord Elite, D.I.G.I, Laydash, FD, and Lee Davis!
Wow! "You can't survive off of Twizzlers, Skittles and a whole bunch of candy," says D.I.G.I. "You gotta get some vegetables, and that's what we are — the vegetables." He is absolutely correct ! can't wait for military combat to drop.
Yoga means to Yoke up with God, here in the West we are Yoking up to Ego related nonsense, what else is new when Ancient Sacred knowledge gets put thru the American ringer?
