Hurricane Sandy may effect launch date

Hurricane Sandy on radar

Tinsel & Tunes’ studio is located directly in the path of hurricane Sandy. The storm dubbed “Frankenstorm” according to twitter is being called by many, “the storm of the century.” The Tinsel & Tunes team has battened down the hatches, stocked up on plenty of egg nog and candy canes and have a stack of Christmas stories next to our roaring fire. We’re hoping that we do not lose power for our launch scheduled for midnight this Wednesday into Thursday. However, if the studio lights do go dark, we will kick off the broadcast as soon as possible. Please be sure to check out our Facebook page for updates during the storm.
