Tonight is pledge drive night for my eclectic music show on KZFR, Radio Detour. You can hear it from 7:30-10 p.m. on 90.1 FM in Northern California, or streaming live on the web at kzfr.org. Hope some of my local listeners will tune in and show their support for music off the beaten track!

My Radio Show: RADIO DETOUR

I have a weekly music program on Chico Community Radio Station, KZFR 90.1 FM.   The station has streaming at KZFR.org and I also can receive messages via KZFR’s site.  My show, Radio Detour, is on every Saturday night, 7:30 pm to 10 pm PST.

Soon I will also have all my playlist’s published on the KZFR site as well so those of you who like to send music to radio stations may be encouraged to send some to the mighty Zephyr.

Live Show in Chico

I am playing a sort-of solo show, meaning I will have a buddy backing me up with bass, on Friday Jan. 29th at the Down Lo Pool Hall in Chico.  It’s an early show and all ages and free-so perfect for you parental music lovers.
Starts at 8pm and hope to see you there so I am not just playing to the pool players.
Love
Barbara

Holy Cow, I’m online again!

Happy 2010!

Big Thanks to Neil deMause for setting me up on the wild wild web to once again ignore for months on end.  (No really, this time I really will keep in touch…..right!)

Thanks also to Melinda the Idea Girl and to Jessica Swope for their hard work to keep Barbara Manning on the web.

Maybe eventually I will even have things to report, but at this time I am swirling with nervousness about going solo again.  I have been taking any solo gig offered and a few have been really really strange.

I am delving into my old songs and learning power pop covers for an added thrill.  I want to be in a power pop band so I fugured I may as well start learning my favorites now and eventually the band will materialize.

I have this crazy idea to do a solo tour of the USA in summer of 2010 by only playing house parties.  So civilized, those house parties!  Any suggestions will be appreciated.  I need to find a partner to travel with, and a person to house sit my cats, so the tour is still just a figurative dream now.

I am kind of shy of this internet thing, as most of you know by now, so I will end this here and write when I finally have important things to announce.

RIP Vic Chestnut.

love Barbara
