7 May 2005 at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City, Ace Yodeler Randy Erwin entertains a crowd of yodeling enthusiats. This event was created and hosted by Bart Plantenga, author of the 2004 best-seller, "Yodel-Ay-Eee-Ooo, The Secret History of Yodeling Around the World" who was finishing up another book lecture tour on yodeling. Yodelers Lynn Book and Mike Johnson also performed that night. After the show, Randy and Mike got a little confused trying to navigate the New York City subway system back to their transportation. Randy is an extremely versatile yodeler, who also took lessons as a youngster from Janet McBride, The Yodeling Queen. He has performed around the world and has several releases out and is a down-right friendly person. Randy is also the yodeler behind the character Alameda Slim in Walt Disney's animated feature film, HOME ON THE RANGE. Bart Plantenga is working on a follow-up book, entitled "Yodel In Hi-Fi" and has several more yodeling CDs in the works as a follow-up to his 2004 compilation "The Rough Guide To Yodel" featuring 18 world famous Yodelers, including Mike Johnson and Janet McBride.

The late Rosalie Allen and Patsy Montana were America's reigning Yodeling Queens. Janet McBride's high-powered yodeling over the past five decades has left no doubt that she is indeed the Yodeling Queen. I met this fantastic person at the 1999 Avoca Festival. Both Janet and her husband, John Ingraham are also retired Deputy Sheriffs. Sonny Rodgers Yodelers Paradise Show at the August 2000 Avoca Old Time Country Music Festival. This 3-hour show was one of Avoca's most popular attractions featuring Yodelers from around the world. In spite of week-long temperatures relentlessly hovering between 97 and 100 degrees, the performers gave it their all and the fans endured. These excerpted clips represent some of the best performances. There are some audio glitches, of which I wasn't aware until I got home and watched the playbacks. Out of 10 film cassettes I shot, two of them suffered from this defect. This would also be Sonny Rodgers last Avoca attendance. His cancer reappeared and the Good Lord called him home in July 2001.

Erwin is the yodeling voice in Disney's animated movie "HOME ON THE RANGE." Plantenga is a DJ, music historian and author of the 2004 best seller "Yodel-Ay-Eee-Ooo, The Secret History of Yodeling Around The World." This is Johnson's first official appearance following his November 2003 spinal cord injury when three of his neck vertebrae collapsed. His song "Yeah I'm A Cowboy" is on Plantenga's "Rough Guide To Yodel" CD along with the songs of 17 other world famous Yodelers. The CD was released in September 2006 by the World Music Network in London-UK, and is available from Amazon.com and numerous Internet sites. The video of this entire Bart Plantenga Yodel show is available from Roughshod Records. http://www.freewebs.com/blackyodelno1/roughshodrecordsstore.htm Bart Plantenga at http://www.bartplantenga.com Mike wrote the "T-Shirt Yodel" back in June 1988 in response to the many comments he was getting about his official T-Shirt which reads "Mike Johnson Black Yodel No.1, Country Music's No.1 Black Yodeler." Even after reading this someone would invariably ask him "Do you really yodel?" Johnson has written more yodeling songs than anyone, and his Yodel Song Archives, containing 114 yodeling songs written & composed by him, are in the Recorded Sound Reference Center's permanent music preservation collection at the Library of Congress. Mike Johnson is an inducted member of America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame.

Mike Johnson and 15-year old Mike Preston deliver a encore yodeling performance of Hank Williams' "Jambalaya" [which incidentally is not a yodeling song] at the June 1994 Michigan Jamboree in Hillsdale, Michigan. From age 12 to around age 17, Mike Preston was the hottest young yodeler in the New England states who had won virtually every award there was for his age group. And why not, considering his personal friend and mentor was Yodeling Slim Clark. Preston is currently in Nashville pursuing songwriting. This video was shot by singer, songwriter Johnny "J" of Sparta, Michigan. He shot the entire weekend of performances, and has the distinct honor of having the title of his song "Puckerbrush" being adopted and incorporated as the official name of their town, Puckerbrush, Nevada. Performing since the mid-1960s, Mike Johnson' Yodel Song Archives, containing 114 yodeling songs written & composed by him, are now part of the Library of Congress' Recorded Sound Reference Center's permanent music collection.

Music, recording, and arrangement by Dana Doidge Lyrics by Anonymous Italian poet Lyrics Lungi dal caro bene, Vivere non poss'io; Sono in un mar di pene; Lungi dal caro bene, Sento, sento mancarmi'l cor. Un dolce estremo sonno, Se lei mirar non ponno, Mi chiuda, mi chiuda i lumi ancor. Here's her bio from her myspace: I'm a 23-year-old classically trained singer/student living in Toronto. All of what you hear, I wrote, recorded, and produced on my own out of my bedroom. I started vocal lessons when I was 8-years-old and haven't stopped since. Loving music, at 10 I began piano lessons (studied for 11 years) and then at 13, music theory/harmony lessons (for 5 years). The style of music I sing and write is called "Popera". Famous Popera artists include Sarah Brightman, Il Divo, and Josh Groban. Because these artists appeal to the 45+ market, (a group which accounts for about 26% of all record purchases), Popera record sales are quite strong. I am currently seeking management as I would like to present my music to various labels.
