Cat "Catzilla" Dietrich and Local Live Houston Radio are pleased to announce the station’s Fall Carnival Concert Fundraiser will be held on Sunday, October 20, 2013 at the Last Concert Café (1403 Nance Street in Houston) from 2:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
Catherine Dietrich, who is the host of the station’s popular program, Stiletto Radio will host this special event to raise funds for a satellite studio that will operate from Hugh & Jeff’s Car Wash & Grill located in League City; proceeds will assist in the upgrade of equipment and the cost of a build-out to wire the space for sound.
Cat and the Local Live Houston family will welcome live music performances from Devil Killing Moth, Sydnee Jayne, Staci Butler, Grant Harrison, Abby Gough, Myrna Sanders and more. The community is invited to celebrate the upcoming fall season and the Halloween holiday in true “carnival style” as costumes are encouraged.
Stiletto Radio, which launched in January of 2012, is a place where local heroes can be celebrated and survivors of all walks of life can tell their stories. With a music base and a talk-show style format, Dietrich’s show includes songs from a variety of musical genres, interviews with business owners, everyday men and women with extraordinary stories and artists from all mediums who need exposure for their creations. Dietrich and crew also highlight local events and news items that are of interest to the listening audience. With witty and intellectual conversation, Cat Dietrich offers women a voice in the community.
Knowing Cat Dietrich as I do, it is no surprise that she is an advocate of women's clout within the community. She is a determined, professional and savvy social media and radio expert involved with the power of communication through many resources.
Cat explains the mission and determination for the new studio, “Stiletto’s vision is to entertain, educate and empower the women of Houston. They are the driving force in our community – this is an open platform show for them to share, be it through music, art, charitable fund raising or discussing the harder social and political issues of the day. Every woman needs to have her voice heard.”
Founded by Jordan Pannell in 2009, Local Live Houston was born out of a need for exposure for local musicians and the arts and entertainment community as a whole. In an effort to return radio and media to the roots of the local community, Local Live Houston has made a huge impact on local radio by expanding its reach to Portland, Oregon and Dallas. As the community embraced Local Live Houston, the Houston Press took notice; four of the 2012 Houston Press Music Award Nominations for Best Show were broadcast on Local Live Houston programs. In addition, the station was honored in 2012 by the Houston Press winning the Best Station award, beating out KPFT 90.1 FM and The Buzz 94.5 FM.
Jordan Michael Pannell, founder of Local Live Houston, says “Local Live was created because we recognized need for social justice, a voice for the city, and more expansive exposure for the music, media, arts and entertainment community. We want to return radio and media to the roots of the community.”
The new home of Dietrich’s Stiletto Radio is an example of the community spirit that is representative of the show and Local Live Houston ideals; Hugh Lazenberry, an active supporter of the station and also the owner of the Kemah Lighthouse, is providing space in his establishment located at 1232 West FM 646 in League City. The new studio will offer artists airtime on a local radio station that will play their music, record live performances and connect them to their fans.
Hugh Lazenberry is excited by the new studio. “I love local music and I’ve listened since Cat first started broadcasting with Local Live Houston. The wide variety of shows on Local Live will surprise you – it is true community radio of the best the Houston Area has to offer. I’m thrilled to have them broadcasting from Hugh & Jeff’s Car Wash & Grill and look forward to everyone coming out to the new Studio.”
The Fall Carnival Concert Fundraiser is open to all ages and families are encouraged to attend. There will be door prizes and a costume contest for both children and adults. An $8 cover is required and additional donations are encouraged to build up the capital needed to complete the studio renovations.
