NEW RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!!  “Like a power pop Blanche DuBois, ‘This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl’ has always relied on the kindness of friends.  Even though we've only met a few of our listeners and supporters over these last twenty years, they're not strangers; they're our friends. As humility-challenged as Dana and I remain, there's no way we could have lasted more than two decades if we couldn't get by with a little help from our friends.  ‘Waterloo Sunset’ is the latest manifestation of that help. Steve Stoeckel had an idea: gather some of this show's talented friends to record a stirring cover of The Kinks' ‘Waterloo Sunset,’ with proceeds from its sale benefiting SPARK!, the perpetually cash-strapped Syracuse community radio station that is home to TIRnRR. Out went the call, to one and to all, and Steve assembled his TIR'N'RR Allstars: Steve Stoeckel, Bruce Gordon, Joel Tinnel, Stacy Carson, Eytan Mirsky, Teresa Cowles, Irene Peña, Dan Pavelich, Keith Klingensmith, and Rich Firestone. Within a fast-paced timeline, these pop heroes crossed over the river, and we are in paradise.  Futureman Records’ Keith Klingensmith suggested an expanded plan, and their ‘Waterloo Sunset’ benefit single became this benefit compilation album.   Everyone who was asked to help did so. Before Dana and I even knew about any of this, the Allstars had secured tracks from The Click Beetles (previously unreleased track), Pop Co-Op (previously unreleased track)  , Irene Peña (previously unreleased track) , Vegas With Randolph, The Anderson Council, (previously unreleased track), The Grip Weeds, Michael Slawter (previously unreleased track), The Armoires, Eytan Mirsky (previously unreleased track), Gretchen's Wheel, and Pacific Soul Ltd.  We're so pleased, so grateful, and dammit, I think we may even be humbled.  Community radio supports independent artists. Independent artists support community radio. And we don't feel afraid. We do need our friends. Thank you, friends.  God save our friends. Although this project was a surprise gift to us, Dana & Carl are proud to have our names attached to it. Thanks to everyone, everyone, for makin' us feel like big shots. Sha la la!” - Carl Cafarelli   A special shout-out and big thanks must go to Keith Klingensmith/Futureman Records for allowing Kool Kat Musik to release the collection on CD, exemplifying that it’s all about community and co-operation!  GREAT!!
