WFUV's Annual Thanksgiving Feastival WFUV/New York is preparing for its Annual FUV Thanksgiving Feastival, which will air beginning Wednesday, November 23, at 6 p.m., through Friday, November 25. The Feastival continues its annual tradition of a marathon of exclusive live performances over the Thanksgiving holiday. More than 20 hours of FUV Live concerts recorded from venues large and small, from the Rockwood Music Hall to the Newport Folk Festival.
"Live concerts on the radio is one of the things that sets FUV apart from other stations," said WFUV PD Rita Houston. "Our annual Feastival is like the Best of the Best from each year. This year's lineup on Thursday and Friday is pretty special, but to add Bruce Springsteen's historic set from MetLife Stadium as a bonus on Wednesday night is sure to this an even more memorable holiday weekend for all."
Artists scheduled to be heard during the three day Feastival include The Record Company, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lucinda Williams, Amos Lee, Michael Kiwanuka, The Head and the Heart, Lucius, Mayer Hawthorne, Connor Oberst and others.
Quartararo Named Vice Chairman of LiveXLive Loton, Corp. has announced that music industry veteran Phil Quartararo has joined as Vice Chairman of its LiveXLive subsidiary. LiveXLive is the premium live music video platform reinvigorating the music business with its HD streams from the most important global festivals and clubs. Quartararo, who was previously on the company's advisory board, is known for helping launch Virgin Records America and the careers of such artists as Lenny Kravitz, Coldplay, and Janet Jackson. In addition to having held the position of President at both Warner Bros. Records and EMI, he is known as a major defender of artists' rights and a leader in efforts to restore value to music.
"Phil is a seasoned veteran in the music and tech industry and has proven to be a leader at LXL," commented Robert Ellin, Chairman of Loton, Corp. "In his expanded role, Phil will focus on artist relations, relationships with managers, distribution agreements, and global strategic partnerships. We are glad to have Phil increase his commitment to our company and look forward to Phil continuing to expand his role over time."
"Building LiveXLive is a lot like when we launched Virgin. Everything in the music industry had become flat and mundane, and we came to shake it up," says Quartararo. "Despite all the streaming music apps fighting for consumers attention, the pipe between artists and fans is broken. I joined Rob Ellin and LiveXLive because I believe it's giving artists and fans back that feeling of being directly connected to each other."
