RundgrenRadio update News

Just a few quick updates to share with you ...

*Rundgren Radio TR's Musical Camp Counselor Series aired last night with special guests Pete Fornatale and Chris Andersen! The archive can be heard at .

Chris Andersen announced some exclusive scoop on the show about webcasts from Todd's Musical Survival Camp. Info is available at .

*Todd will be on the David Letterman Show tonight! We've been told he will just be with Paul and the band and will not be performing one of his songs in its entirety.

*Todd's summer tour begins next week at the Bearsville Theatre on June 23rd in Woodstock, NY. Here's what we know about these shows ...

There will be 3 sets. First one is electric, second one is acoustic (with the band not just Todd), and the third is another electric set that is supposed to be even more upbeat than the first. It appears they will not be doing any songs from the upcoming reProduction album and the setlist will be oldies which some venues have dubbed "Best Of". The band is Todd, Jesse Gress, Kasim Sulton, Prairie Prince, and John Ferenzik. Some of the smaller venue shows are already sold out --- YMCA Bolton in Long Island, Rams Head in Annapolis, Havana in New Hope PA, and Infinity Hall in Norfolk CT. If you have any spare tickets for these shows please let us know at because we do know some true Todd fans that are looking for tickets and they are not scalpers so rest assured your tickets would be going into the right hands!

*Todd will be in Amsterdam on 9/24 at the Paradiso performing with an orchestra and that show is also sold out. They are looking to do some shows overseas but they would be with the summer band not the orchestra. Nothing has been announced yet and it's not a lock by any means but they do want to do some shows if the offers come in.

*Todd's Musical Survival Camp starts Monday ---

*The CD Todd Rundgren's Johnson is now available. or should have copies.

*In case you missed the news, Todd decided he wanted to take a break from the big production type shows this year so we will not be doing anything with Todd in Akron in 2011. You can read Todd's take on it in this interview ...

For those of you that might be interested, we are still doing something in Akron on Labor Day weekend to include a party at the hotel on 9/3 (details coming soon) and a concert on 9/4 featuring headliner Rick Springfield with special guest openers The Motels, and Kasim Sulton. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster. The concert is being promoted by our new company, Onward Promotions, and you won't see any Rundgren Radio presents anywhere on this one. If you have any interest in joining us and some other Todd fans for this concert, please let us know as we have blocked an area in the LOGE for us all to sit together.

*CONTEST! Win a black XL logo t-shirt in our "Pick The Setlist" Contest! The shirt is made from organic materials and is super nice looking. Send 20 song names that you think will be a part of the summer tour setlist to and the person that selects the most that actually end up on the setlist will win the prize. We will do a hat draw if we have a tie-breaker. If you don't wear XL or don't want the shirt we will come up with a comparable replacement prize for you. Deadline is June 22nd!

Have a great week!
Doug & Melinda
