This Saturday 9/8/12 at 8:30 PM EST

Shakin' It RadioCatch Jon Peterson's SHAKIN' IT RADIO on WCBE 90.5 FM tomorrow night around 8:30 PM EST to hear "Dust from the Stars" on the radio! :D It's a super-fun, upbeat show that airs from 8-10 PM every Saturday. You can listen on WCBE's website, too. Plus, you can download the show from Jon's blog.  Jon has supported our music from the beginning:

"It's hard to come up with a fresh and unique sound in this post post-modern world of music, but Team Smile and Nod has managed to do just that. Their sound is sophisticated, playful, melodic and extremely engaging. On songs like “Still Stuck" and "They Grow It,” Kara and Rich show their ability to absorb cross generational influences from Everything But The Girl to SMiLE era Beach Boys. By digesting the atmospheric layering and sonic textures of terrific emo-pop of the past, they have produced an emotionally compelling sound for the future that is distinctly their own.”  Jon Peterson, Host, "Shakin It" WCBE/Columbus

Thank you for your continued support, Jon!!!
