Yes, it’s that time of year again.  Or… one of those times of year since The Illinois Times “Best Of Springfield” is held in the fall. Now it’s the “Reader’s Choice Awards” as put on by the State Journal Register. There are many many many categories for local businesses, people, bands, and even the non-local businesses. It’s impossible for us to keep up with them all. From what we gather however, Dumb Records is in the running for a few things this year – “Best Music Store” and “Best Local Twitter”?!? (We are not sure if we’ve ever been in the running for either of these categories, but we’ll take it!

BIG warning / disclaimer: do not ever EVER head over to our twitter page if you plan on taking anything seriously!!!

It turns out that Black Sheep is also in the running in the category of best live band venue!?!? (This makes sense if this is a recap of the past year of Springfield).

To go vote, head over to the State Journal-Register site right here. To vote for Black Sheep, the best venue is in the “entertainment category”, the best twitter is in the “fun” category, and “best music store” is in the “shopping” category. We also love all of our local business friends, so vote for everyone! Or whoever you want to!

We are thrilled to announce this afternoon that our community radio station WQNA – 88.3 fm which hosts The Black Sheep Radio Show / The Dumb Records Radio Hour is back on air after nearly a month-long hiatus! A few dedicated volunteers to the station have been hard at work to make sure a new computers to power the station are up and running and also managed to get a damaged / frozen transmitter fixed. The station still isn’t coming in completely full power just yet – but it soon will. You can also stream the station (in full power) online at wqna.net. We have been told that the station schedule listed on the site is also getting updated today. Find an online article in the SJ-R about WQNA being back on air right here.

Yes, this means “The Dumb Records Radio Hour” will be back on air this upcoming Friday at our normal time of 4-6pm.
