New Tunesday – July 2, 2019

From onsite at BHS International in Salt Lake City, we’re so happy to see a cappella groups keeping us knee-deep in new music. Here are our top picks for this week!

Home Free

With the release of their latest album “Dive Bar Saints” on the way, the world’s favorite country a cappella band keeps giving their fans a new surprise each week. Here is the original tune “Dreamer” which debuted on opry.com.

Accent

It’s never a bad week when we get a new release from the worldwide group, Accent. And as a bonus this time, they collaborated for a KPop release with Inhyeok Yeo and beatboxer Kiyo Miyazawa.

Talkappella Chats with TeKay

Hosts John and Brian sat down with a cappella legend, Thomas King – better known to the community as TeKay.

New Programming Schedule Starts July 1

Starting July 1st, we are rolling out a TON of new content on Acaville! With all of these exciting updates, we’ve decided to update our broadcast calendar as well.

Here’s what’s new:

Barbershop 7th Hour
Host: Jeremy K. Gover of the Barbershop Harmony Society
Thursdays at 5 PM Pacific, Sundays at 11 AM & 11 PM Pacific

Jeremy spends his days inside the walls of Harmony Halls and you can find him in “mission control” during BHS International. In this hour each week, he will bring you some of the best performances in barbershop, hidden gems, interviews, and all the barbershop information you want and need!

Counterpoint
Hosts: Deke Sharon and Rob Dietz
Mondays at 5 PM Pacific, Sundays at 7 AM & 7 PM Pacific

You know them, you love them and they love you, too! Why else would they bring you A-List guests, hot topics to ponder, and a lifetime of a cappella knowledge? Our broadcasts start on July 1 with Season 1!

The Pulse
Host: Rachael Schoenbaum
Tuesdays at 6 PM Pacific, Sundays at 10 AM & 10 PM Pacific\

Here at Acaville we do a LOT of traveling and we meet some incredible groups. Rachael sits down with high school, collegiate, adult, and pro groups – some of whom aren’t that well known – yet. Get to know your community-at-large and listen in to hear what groups just like you have to say!

Vocal HERspective
Hosts: Amanda Cornaglia and Rachael Shoenbaum
Tuesdays at 6:30 PM Pacific, Sundays at 10:30 AM & 10:30 PM Pacific

Let’s face it – women are doing amazing things everywhere – and everywhere includes a cappella. And yet, when push comes to shove, community members, news outlets, and media still often default to the male perspective for advice. Each week, Amanda and Rachael will introduce you to a woman or female-identifying member of the a cappella community that you should know more about – and they have plenty of great advice for all singers!

And we’ll still be airing all of your favorites – just a few will air at new times, including:

Competition Countdown
Host: Rachael Schoenbaum
Mondays at 5 PM Pacific, Sundays at 7 AM & 7 PM Pacific

Here at Acaville we love to catch up with all of the competitors – ICHSA, ICCA, and AcaOpen – anywhere there is a prize on the line. Dive deep with us in 30 minute interviews that include live singing! This show will return in the fall and winter once competition season kicks up again.

Rebroadcast Sundays
All Day Sundays

Talkappella
