Sunny Side Up

If you’re up early Saturday morning by necessity or by design, WTMD’s newest show Sunny Side Up speaks to you. TMD Morning Show host Erik Deatherage eases you into the day with hand-crafted sets of music from all styles of music: folk, soul, alternative, whatever. Anything goes as long as it goes well with the morning.

Live music and conversation is also featured on the show. Guests this year have included The Wallflowers, World Party, Justin Townes Earle, Trixie Whitley, and Atlas Genius.

Sunny Side Up airs Saturday from 7-8am.

The new-wave meets girl group alt pop band from Brooklyn features two female lead singers, Holly and Jess, who dress and sound alike. There’s uniformity in what the guys in the band wear too, but what’s not the…

Sunny Side Up: Twin Forks

Chris Carraba

It’s kind of like starting over for Chris Carrabba. And that’s just the way the Dashboard Confessional frontman wants it! It’s very blue collar the way he’s going about fronting his new Americana harmonizing band, Twin Forks while the other is on extended hiatus. He’s reluctant to capitalize on the massive success of the open-hearted…
