Holy Great Cannoli
You can’t even imagine what just happened to us. We are on the show after we had a small meeting about promo work. Let me tell you when we asked how we did, we had 3.3k face-book listeners. That’s a lot of listeners. Well I did my promo thing, I can safely say we will hit 4k by midnight its 11pm now. We are climbing steady and fast!!
We had the infamous Monkey Boy on! Let me tell you about the Monkey, he can keep it clean but get a point across. He was a little nervous but I told him my first one on real radio I futzed up and I said shit on real radio where you can’t say the 7 deadly. Just pretend we aren’t here and me and you are texting. Well he did and it went over very well. I just looked at the numbers and we have hit 3.8k 11:15pm.
Well tonight’s secret word was asshole, Jim Savalli you owe me ten and so does Joey Ballz. I’m keeping track and I will keep you to the word it’s for my nephew’s school. My nephew is autistic and this cash goes to his school for supplies. So, call into anyone of us that you know while we are on and get one of us to curse. It’s going, to a good cause!
Monkey rocks and we spilled the beans on how he got the name Monkey Boy. I’m not going to say how you will have to go the archives and listen in!! It is pretty hysterical!!
Long Island Music
Well this week right after we did our sponsors, we hit up some Long Island Music, our first song was by Grim Jack. What a rocking tune and our ending was by Fresh Squeezed Lemonade. Guys, Jim’s in charge he knows the music scene better than me and I’m technically challenged, Parking Challenged (I take up 4 spots with my truck) as well as Blonde Challenged (just because). Its 11:34pm we have 3,896 views.
Village Coupons has a couple of great deals so if you are a small local business hit me up at email@example.com and I will tell you how we can help you attract more business!!

20 Minutes Before Work
I’m sitting here before my day job as a pharmacy technician thinking of what I can do to the guys tonight. I’d bring in silly string but then I’d have to clean it up. Plus, I think Jim will piss off!
I’m quite sure by the time I leave work I will have a genius plan of attack. I mean really these 2 dildos call me The House Whore. Which I personally think is quite humorous because I’m usually in my silks (p.j.’s) Hmmm I think I’m going to square one. In a small hat, put in a batch of words that you cant use for the evening and wham! Could be a lot of fun! Also, we can do it twice once before and once in the middle to kick it up a notch!!
Yesterday I spoke with Jim, so far last weeks, show had 97 live viewers, 5k face-book listeners and 900 went to the archives. Let’s see what tonight’s show brings to the table!! I want to break every record every week!! I’m determined to make this show a success!
Anyhow 20 minutes is not enough time to write a blog!

Special Episode of Miller and the Rockstar Featuring "Lights of Neptune" LIVE in the studio, Tuesday August 29th 8pm
\Just when you thought Long Islands original music scene was being left in the dark, along come LIGHTS OF NEPTUNE to shine down on us all. They are not extraterrestrials.......... no. They are born and breed Long Islanders. It’s no wonder they are on there way to becoming Long Islands premier original rock act.
By aligning their unwavering dedication to a “Do-it-yourself” work ethic with their signature sound, singer/guitarist and songwriter Ernie Pasqualini, bassist Edward McNeice, & drummer Phil Sorrentino, will help to define the landscape of today’s long Isaland original music scene. The backbone of their work? Stylistically eclectic songs—suggesting a range of influences from the 60’s british invasion to 90’s grunge and beyond. There’s a little rock, new wave, alternative and progressive and dare I say “metal” influences all wrapped up into a neat pop wrapper.
Currenty in post production on there debut EP (not tittled yet) the boys keep there fans happy by gigging constantly and always leaving them wanting more. These 3 guys are also just as happy in the studio as they are in front of there minions performing live. Honestly, this is a “LIVE” band.
Don’t believe me? Well... “You Know What to Do”.
Don’t look to the heavens for the LIGHTS OF NEPTUNE. Look right here in your own backyard and may the LIGHTS OF NEPTUNE shine upon you.
I'm from Long Island, NY. Born and raised. Made the exodus from Flushing, Queens eastward to Suffolk County as many of my baby boomer cronies did when our Moms and Dads got tired of "city living" back in the late 60's, early 70's...and were looking for a less congested and slower paced area to raise a family. The suburbs, as Nassau and Suffolk County are known, we're just what they were looking for. Affordable housing, new schools, lower taxes and tightly knit communities that had no shortage of kids, open spaces, Parks and undeveloped wooded areas for them to play in, and good jobs to available for men to support their families.
The reason why is a bit of a mystery, but Long Island is also a veritable hot bed of musical talent and those who have made their mark in the industry have done so in an incredible variety of musical styles. All one needs to do is wiki "Long Island Musicians", and the list of success stories is a mile long. Joan Jett, Blue Oyster Cult, Eddie Money, Twisted Sister, etc. etc…
Of all the famous and enduring "rock stars" that hailed from this little fish shaped Island just East of NYC and South of CT, one stands out head and shoulders above them all as the DEFINITIVE Long Island musical success story.
His music both lyrically and melodically defines Long Island life. When a Billy Joel song is played, whether it be on the radio, in a bar, at a hotel piano lounge, or by any of the 1000's of "cover bands" that perform every night on Long Island, people pause for a second or two and pay attention... It's something that's reserved for when a listener/fan recognizes something as "their own". When lyrics hit so close to home at times that they can make the listener smile, or weep... When the music can make someone dance uncontrollably or remain completely motionless in anticipation of hearing their favorite part of the song... WHEN THE ARTIST CAN STILL SELL OUT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN on a monthly basis for the past 3 years, there's a special connection between the music Billy Joel has created, and the place he was born... Long Island NY.
"Angry Young Men" understand that connection better than most. Each member of the latest tribute to the music of Billy Joel hails from Long Island. His entire catalogue is metaphorically "embedded in their souls, as well as "encoded in each of their DNA."
Fronted by long time "Piano Man", and original artist in his own right,Dean James Silva, the 6-piece band is rounded out by Lee Nelson on Drums and Vocals,Joseph Cumia on Bass and Vocals, Brian McKeever on Guitars, Annie Moston on Harmonies and Percussion, andDoug Leax on Keyboards/Synths/ Strings/Sax etc...
In the grand scheme of "all things Billy Joel", there's no shortage of Billy Joel tribute bands worldwide... At present, the count is around 25 of them. HOWEVER, having 3 of the most notable BJTB's on the planet (not to mention BJ himself) in such close proximity, Angry Young Men knew that being Long Islanders and starting yet ANOTHER BJTB, they'd REALLY have to come to the proverbial "table" and sound amazing... or not bother at all. Coming to the table is something they have done astonishingly well.
The drive behind the band is Dean James Silva's and his unwavering motivation to be the best at everything he does. Having "come up" with the likes of good friend Mike DelGiudice (Big Shot front man and a member of Billy Joel's performing band) as well as members of Nine Days, Good Rats, and countless other notable Long Island success stories, he's hell bent on making up for lost time... and it shows. All one needs to do is experience an AYM show and the precise emulation of Billy Joel's studio versions come through loud and clear. The band is connected to the music they play on many levels. One might say that growing up Long Islanders, they were "born with it".
The band will be performing live quite a bit in the Fall/Winter 2016-17. The schedule page and their Facebook page (http://www.Facebook.com/AngryYoungMen) has performance dates listed. You can also check out some of the Dean James Silva Bands' original material on iTunes.
If you're a fan of Billy Joel, and you like completely live music, no samples, tracks, or studio magic… Angry Young Men is a great band to see! Catch them before they're not a secret anymore...
Singer and songwriter Dean James Silva’s Soundtrack Of My Life is available on iTunes. The nine song CD features Angry Young Men band mates Brian McKeever on guitars and Lee Nelson on drums.
Where To Begin?
I really don’t know. It’s been a whirlwind between my book being done getting ready for publishing and this radio show taking off. Trust me, I’m one tired girl!
It’s been a hectic week for me with blogging on many different sites as well as prepping for the show along with my regular job. I’m excited about my Sat Night’s and I get a kick out of the responses I’ve been getting about how funny we are as well as how fast we come up with stuff. I mostly love when people rag on my $4.00 Kmart Tiara. I only have one response about it ‘GET OVER ME, I’M THE PRINCESS.’
The 2 dildo’s don’t blog and I wonder if they can read sometimes because what I have seen from their text messages. These two kill me. While I’m sitting in the fat man’s porch blogging, these two are carrying on in the yard, throwing tools at each other and trying to get the house whore going (the house whore is their pet name for me). I’ve come, to the conclusion that I’m surrounded by pure stupid entertainment which, is right up my alley: 3 Stooges, Benny Hill and slapstick comedy I'm down. People falling and animals doing stupid shit to each other I can watch forever .
What’s To Come
This week we have Monkey Boy coming on. This guy kills it. He’s a caddy at a golf course and he work’s with this Illegal English Fuck-Tard. Monkey Boy is relentless on ragging on this guy as well as my house mate Drunk Joe. He comes up with full skits on these two morons that will make you fall off your chair.
He said to me this morning: we need to get a t.v. show then, we can get puppets and saw John in half. I replied what about my X can we throw poison darts at him too? He said to me yes after we buy Dracula’s Castle and renovate it for our freak show! I don’t where he comes up with some stuff but I usually start laughing, snickering or spitting something out of my nose (it’s usually at work with my head in my locker and not on my 15 minute break either). I LOVE MONKEY BOY HE DOES BRING LAUGHTER INTO MY LIFE. Can wait to ask him where he got the name Monkey Boy?
What To Expect This Week
We are 3 Sidesplitting Idiots that poor Jim has to wrangle in, constantly ragging on each other and trying to give real advice when we do get serious questions in. I still have, to check firstname.lastname@example.org account. I’ve been taking a breather from typing and checking things for personal reason of being shot. I realized, I need to slow down a little bit, I feel as if I'm going in 3 different directions still aimed at a beeee-rick wall. I can actually, at this point have some alone time with myself and get pampered because, I am a Princess.
Things To Come
As I’m plugging away I’m still begging for sponsorship as well as weekly guests. I tell people about the show, they want to come on but then chicken out. WTF! It is not a hard gig at all to be a guest, you get to dog on the clown show around you, laugh and then go out for drinks. If you are not me in the hot seat plugging blogs, grabbing questions, coming up with things to do to the guys and tracking music you are ok!!
This Weeks Secret Word
As always, every show we make a bet on a certain word we can’t use and the loser has to cough up money to my autistic nephew’s school. The first one gets charged 10 bucks and another 1 dollar every time you use that word. This week since I do the opening to the show, I’m going to announce it so fast they won’t know what hit them. But I will tell Jim and Monkey Boy so we can egg them on! Jim is delightfully evil and Monkey Boy is just the devil himself when it comes to annoying people. With these two on my side I can’t lose!!
