Paula Gallo, vocalist for the Paula G Reality, speaks with Bruce Swan of WPKN about the band’s CD, their upcoming performances, and the Breaking the Band contest in which the group is hoping to win a slot on the main stage at the Sono Seaport Oyster Festival September 8, 2012. The interview was recorded August 23, 2012.
The Paula G Reality is part of the August 26 edition of the Local Bands Show on WPLR. Co-host Rick Allison posted on Facebook that they would air Leave Me Alone, Please Don’t Go from the band’s self-titled CD sometime around 10 pm. Here’s what they wrote online about the show:
artisinal is surely an over-used word. applied to widgets and waffles and whatnot. the recorded efforts of local musicians fit the description better than most. non corporate, individual ,tasty, non focus grouped ,hand-crafted nuggets of sonic goodness. here, hear: big fat combo…ken atkins & the honky tonk kind…dave hogan…yellow 9…the paula g reality…queen killing kings…beach avenue…caravan of thieves. and at no additional cost to you, two mind boggling ,handcrafted segues that’ll take you back to the ‘70s even if you were never there before. so proud.
The band is proud to be on commercial radio as part of such a great lineup.
