July 24, 2005
I tried to send the news out last night but
there seemed to be a problem with my news service. At any rate, what's here is all good
news so read on and enjoy!
New to MKOC This Week
There's a new song on "Country
Sings out for Child Protection" by songwriter, Rhonda Walsh - "Sweet
Dreams". I hope to showcase more of Rhonda's work soon. She has some wonderful songs
available for artists looking for songs to record.
Sweet Dreams is featured on "Music
4" of the site. For those who've never been to that part of MKCO, take some time
and hear some great songs all in the interest of protecting our children. There are many
wonderful artists and songs that have been contributed to this cause; Joe Diffie, Little
River Band, Ronnie McDowell, Cerrito.. just to name a few.
I gotta tell ya right here about a great deal on a web
hosting service. The ad is placed further down in the news, but if y'all are like me, and
I'm pretty sure we're all like this.. we skip over the ads to get to the stuff we wanna
read. Trust me, you NEED to read this one.
Special Sale! $1.99/mo.!
Just so you'll understand, yes, I need ads to help keep MKOC alive.. I don't get
a whole lot out of it, but every little bit helps. But when I'm searching out things to
advertise, I choose things that I think some folks would be really interested in AND I
seek out the best deals that I can find.... not what will pay more. I have an entire page
in the MKOC Store listed with web hosts and if you'll look, you'll see that I try to list
a variety with enough info and the prices to help you make an educated choice. But this
deal right here, is by far the sweetest one I've come across yet. If someone does sign up
for it, please let me know how things go. I'd be willing to report back to all, be it good
or bad.. and that goes for any ad you find on MKOC or in the news. If it's a swindle,
don't hesitate to let me know.. I'll check it out and if it is indeed a hack, they'll be
swiftly removed from everything on MKOC! Truth is, I'm tempted to try this one out
myself... just hate packin' up and movin' this gargantuan site! LOL
Find Books, Music, Videos, Software, Electronics, Website Hosts/Servers .... Don't pay the
high prices you find in the stores. I've researched the links posted to give everyone an
opportunity to buy great things at the best prices.
Artists, be sure to check out the "Info" section as it's been updated with even
more info.. web links, sheet music, instruments and more.
Talent - Completely updated with more info and music!
Don't forget to take a look.. the Amazon Special Sales page which gets updated frequently.

the concert on Saturday, July 23rd at Horse Trading Days in Zelienople. The show starts at

Pamela Phillips Oland: Thanks!
A special thanks to SongU.com faculty member Pamela Phillips Oland for a great and
insightful talk this past Thursday night for SONG 181. It was great to hear some of the
stories about writing a song for Film/TV as well as watch the song progress from its
initial state through its re-writes. Here's just one of the many great comments we got:
"SONG 181: I appreciated that a
successful songwriter would present her material so honestly and humbly. Great inspiration
for re-writing. I love Digga Digga Dog! My kiddo has the 102 Dalmatians movie; I'm
definitely going to dust it off and watch it again (with new ears). :) Terri R!"

Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan
A DJ speaks...
A review by Dan Michel
DJ and Program Director WPMB and WKRV-FM, Vandalia, Illinois
"DON'T IT MAKE YOU WANTA GO HOME", written by JOE SOUTH, has long been one of my
favorite songs... With each year that goes by, the lyrics continue to ring true. JACK
BLANCHARD and MISTY MORGAN have taken this classic song and have remade it with their
familiar harmonies. It features a bouncy arrangement that kind of reminds you of bouncing
down a two lane highway... headed for destination: HOME.
This song is due for another go around so that another generation can be reminded of all
the things that we give up in the name of progress. This recording by JACK and MISTY is a
fresh sounding version of one of the finest songs ever written... perfect for summertime

Stardust Comp #56
LOST IN THE CROWD.
I'm honored that so many stars have recorded or performed my songs, but the ones I'm most
proud of are relatively unknown artists.
The names you will probably recognize are: Buck Owens, Englebert Humperdink, Lawrence
Welk, Rolfe Harris, Dean Martin and The Golddiggers, Henry Mancini, The Ventures, Wilma
Burgess, Des O'Connor, Tony Martin, Connie Eaton, Sheb Wooley, The Tennessee Guitars, The
George Wright Orchestra, and Bob Hope, to name a few.
Most of them did a good job. A few just phoned it in.
A couple names that aren't household words are Mike Miller and Joel Mathis. Their
renditions of my songs are the best of all.
Joel was a friend from Valdosta Georgia. We lost Joel a few years ago, but his music is
still with us.
Mike Miller is our old pal, and former bandleader who lives and plays in Jacksonville,
Florida, where he and his band draw big crowds.
Misty and I have no financial interest in either of these artists, but we will keep on
trying to get their music out to the world.
If you haven't heard them yet, you're in for a treat.
Mike Miller's rendition of my "Don't It Look Like Georgia" is beautiful.
Joel Mathis' version of my "Little Orphan Annie" is a little gem.
There is untapped talent out there that just gets lost in the crowd.
Some people work to help the needy, others work to better the condition of animals. We
admire them. It's just that we care about great artists who have been locked out by that
Music Business Stone Wall.

Executive Memo July 21, 2005
COUNTRY LEADS IN HD
By Dave Robbins
WUSN HD2 Chicagos Future Country
The Spring of 2005 will be forever written in the history books of Country Music radio.
The Country format took a giant leap forward in May as Country artists and broadcasters
worldwide watched Americas Country Station WUSN Chicago become Americas first
commercial radio station to launch a fulltime digital multicast radio station. The new
station, WUSN HD2 Chicagos Future Country, features all brand new
released country music, and is the most exciting thing on the radio dial today.
This new and all digital Country radio station broadcast covering over 8 million
Chicagoland listeners was destined for greatness the moment it was conceived. The format
choice and concept were simple: Give Country music fans a radio station that exposes new
artists as well as brand new songs from established artists 24 hours a day. Songs
that cannot be heard back to back anywhere else on the dial. Its new Country music,
all the time.
Using HD Radio technology, WUSN HD2 in Chicago is a second broadcast channel to
Americas largest and most listened to Country radio station, US99.5. Both stations
can coexist on one frequency thanks to digital transmission. Listeners who are listening
to US99.5 with a digital radio now have a choice: Listen to the main channel, or select
HD2 with the push of a button and hear all new Country music, all the time - without ever
leaving 99.5 FM. All for free in crystal clear CD quality.
True Country music fans will love this format. It is unique, different, and most
importantly promotes Country music for the future. There is nothing as powerful as
launching a radio station that will impact future generations of Country music listeners,
and actively promote the new music in the format. No other format has anything like WUSN
HD2 to support its future growth.
This is a radio station that Country artists and Nashville alike can be proud of,
providing airplay for artists and songs and building the foundation for the future stars
of Country. By exposing new product on a continuous basis, we open a direct line of
communication to the trendsetters, the actives, the true lovers of Country music. We
expose the new and fresh product and create an excitement about new Country music that has
never been created before.
As HD capable radios begin showing up in cars this fall and tabletop models begin
appearing in stores for Christmas 2005, guess what will be on the digital dial and leading
the way? WUSN HD2 broadcasting all new Country music, all the time.
As we leap into future technologies, the Country music industry should be proud. Proud of
its talent. Proud of its heritage. Proud of its stellar music. And now, proud of a new and
futuristic all digital radio station leading the way in Americas heartland
showcasing the future of Country music.
Country music listeners will be able to download and purchase songs right in their car,
get additional artist information, and download lyrics, all at the push of a button as
digital capabilities are added to HD radios.
The winner of course is the format, the artist, the music retailers just to name a few.
But the most important winner is the one who will determine the future success of Country
music radio: The Country music fan. We all know them, and we all love them.
Thank you for all of the support we have received in the launch of this fantastic project.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Emergency Numbers For Cell Phones
(Courtesy of Bob Cape)
This sounds like excellent advise and I am doing it now on
my cell phone. I found the information in a very interesting daily newsletter put out by
Kimberly Quiggle. Check it out SUBSCRIBE CUP O'CHEER in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY = ICE
A campaign encouraging people to enter an emergency contact number in their mobile phone's
memory under the heading "ICE" (i.e. In Case of Emergency), has rapidly spread
throughout the world as a particular consequence of last week's terrorist attacks in
London. Originally established as a nation-wide campaign in the UK, ICE allows paramedics
or police to be able to contact a designated relative / next-of-kin in an emergency
The idea is the brainchild of East Anglian Ambulance Service paramedic Bob Brotchie and
was launched in May this year. Bob, 41, who has been a paramedic for 13 years, said:
"I was reflecting on some of the calls I've attended at the roadside where I had to
look through the mobile phone contacts struggling for information on a shocked or injured
Almost everyone carries a mobile phone now, and with ICE we'd know immediately who to
contact and what number to ring. The person may even know of their medical history."
By adopting the ICE advice, your mobile will help the rescue services quickly contact a
friend or relative - which could be vital in a life or death situation. It only takes a
few seconds to do, and it could easily help save your life. Why not put ICE in your phone
now? Simply select a new contact in your phone book, enter the word 'ICE' and the number
of the person you wish to be contacted.
Further reading from another email. Subject: ICE Following the disaster in London . . East
Anglican Ambulance Service have launched a national "In case of Emergency (ICE)"
campaign with the support of Falklands war hero Simon Weston. The idea is that you store
the word "I C E" in your mobile phone address book, and against it enter the
number of the person you would want to be contacted "In Case of Emergency". In
an emergency situation ambulance and hospital staff will then be able to quickly find out
who your next of kin are and be able to contact them. It's so simple that everyone can do
it. Please do. Please will you also email this to everybody in your address book, it won't
take too many 'forwards' before everybody will know about this. It really could save your
life, or put a loved one's mind at rest. For more than one contact name ICE1, ICE2, ICE3
