Local Zone CD
Started in 1988, the Local Zone was the brainchild of WUVT producer and DJ Howard Petruziello with the intention of promoting and exposing the local and regional talent, with the occasional national act coming through. In 2000, Bob Cardoni decided to re-boot the show, expanding it and featuring live bands every week - all styles, all genres. Now in its tenth year post-reboot, the Local Zone, while still continuing its mission to promote and expose the local and regional acts, has grown beyond the four walls of WUVT's Studio C. The Local Zone has begun broadcasting via remote, promoting its own concerts, expanded to feature interviews and exposés on artists, streaming content on the internet through our webpage and now, a compilation. It is our wish that you the listener will enjoy this collection of songs as much as we have enjoyed bringing you the Local Zone each and every week.
More personally I would like to thank the stream of hosts and engineers that have helped produce this show especially Bobby for bringing me in; Howard for creating this beast and Josh Arritt for almost everything and anything that I can think of; and of course all the bands and artists that I have had the pleasure of working with over the years. I would also like to thank Josh Peebles and Chimneysweep Records for helping me through the muck and mire of getting this cd made; Tim Kirk for the exceptional job of mastering these songs from the original recordings and to Dave Franusich for his graphic design of the package.
And thanks to WUVT-FM – Saving the World, One Listener at a Time
