You can listen to the program live via the Internet at this location.

A review of MELDRUM's September 15, 2009 concert at Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California can be found at

Two full new songs from MELDRUM"A Toast To Romance" and "Blackened Blue" — are available for streaming at this location. Both tracks will appear on MELDRUM's forthcoming third album (for which Michelle recorded her tracks prior to her passing), "Lifer", which will be available for purchase through iTunes starting in October.

Michelle Meldrum died in May 2008 as a result of a cystic growth that had restricted oxygen and blood flow to her brain, rendering her braindead.

"Lifer" stands as a proud tribute to Michelle, who wrote the material for the CD with Hoglan, along with new members Laura Christine (bass) and Michele Madden (vocals).

"Lifer" is sonically different in direction than anything previously released by the band. With new life, and new talent, this album has carried the talents these four have to a higher level.
