Ann Arbor's WQKL (107one) announces release of "Live From Studio A2, Volume 2" to benefit The Michigan Theatre

Since its introduction to our airwaves, homes, and day-to-day activities, ann arbor's 107one has become a welcome staple of the community and the Ann Arbor lifestyle. With the acclaimed Studio A2 and Studio A2 On The Road broadcasts, listeners have tuned their radios and opened their ears to thousands of live and local performances that we all talk about and remember.

Last year marked the first time those memorable performances were captured on disc for everyone to enjoy. The result was the Live From Studio A2, Volume One benefit CD, which helped raise thousands of dollars for the Michigan Theater Foundation and its focus for live entertainment for more than 80 years: the historic Michigan Theater on Liberty in downtown Ann Arbor.

The station is pleased to announce that they have taken the newest and best live performances, both from artists' visits to their studio and adventures across the area to create Live From Studio A2, Volume Two.

With songs handpicked and carefully re-mastered to showcase the amazing talent that comes through our town, Live From Studio A2, Volume Two boasts a pedigree of emerging and chart-topping artists and acts that will be the perfect complement to your collection.

With stand-out tracks from artists on the rise like James Morrison, Brett Dennen, Vienna Teng and Donavon Frankenreiter, to artists you've loved for years like Feist, Indigo Girls, They Might Be Giants and John Hiatt, Live From Studio A2, Volume Two illustrates what makes Ann Arbor truly special with its eclectic mix of talent and artistry. The project is made possible once again by the generous support of our friends at Bank of Ann Arbor and Sesi Motors.

Proceeds from the disc will benefit The Michigan Theater Foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to operate, preserve and maintain Ann Arbor's historic Michigan Theater for the benefit of the community and the arts. Established to save the theater from demolition in 1979, the foundation works every day to raise the considerable funds needed to maintain the theater and its programs.

Live From Studio A2, Volume Two to benefit the Michigan Theater will be released Tuesday, November 3rd and available exclusively at Borders stores in Ann Arbor (downtown Ann Arbor on Liberty, Arborland on Washtenaw and Water's Place on Lohr Road), Brighton, Canton and Novi with the introductory price of $12.99.

Don't have Live From Studio A2, Volume One yet? What are you waiting for? Borders will be offering BOTH volumes together for $20. That's a savings of over six dollars and the perfect way for you or a friend to check out what truly rocks in Ann Arbor.
