State In The Real – Penn State Music Scene

Attention Musicians! State In The Real presents "The VIP Room" on The Lion 90.7FM



The VIP Room is Penn State Music Network’s new interactive web/radio show that gives you the rare opportunity to find out what YOU want to know about the music scene in your favorite place- Happy Valley.

A new musical guest will be featured on every episode, ready to answer your questions AND perform an original song.  Keep an eye out for contests as well!  You can send in your guest questions, feedback, and requests through email, Facebook, Twitter, or call us live at 814-865-WKPS.  If you’re a musician of any type and would like to be featured on the show, please e-mail us at with your name, band name, bio, website, contact info, a fun fact about yourself, and an example of your music so we can hear what you’ve got. Stay tuned Mondays from 4-5pm on The Lion 90.7FM to help us spread the word about all of the great artists taking on the music world from OUR town.  Let’s get real and admit that here in State College, WE ARE ridiculously talented.

***The VIP Room is currently taking a break for the summer, but don’t worry because we’ll be back in August ready for even more musicians equipped with their new freshman groupies! Until then, feel free to email us your application to secure your spot next school year. Thank you so much to all of the guests/crew/fans for a very successful first semester!!***

I’m your VIP Room host, Jessa Blaise. For each week’s show, we’ll be featuring 2 talented local artists. Each guest’s segment will be filmed and edited into their own webisode series that will be put up as soon as possible on:

Here is a video from our first show with Brennan Pankiw performing his original song “Turn The Key”.

There are many more opportunities for fame coming your way- like the monthly ‘Cover Charge.’ Every month we will choose a song and ask for your best covers of it. We will put our favorites on the website and ask the audience to choose the winner. Cover Charge winners will get an interview in The VIP Room, their video promoted on our website, and some other great perks. So you better check back often for updates and your chance to win.

Not a musician? No problem, because this show is seriously for everyone.
Be the first to discover up and coming artists! Impress friends with your extensive knowledge of local music! Download new tracks for those times when you run out of clean clothes so you drive home to ask mom to help with your laundry ‘cause you’re tired and you worked sooo harddd recording lectures on your iPad the last few weeks.. Don’t have an iPad? That’s okay too, because now you can cry about it at a bar that you know has an exquisite open mic night line-up! Shorter reasons to watch the show are good too, as long as you help us spread the word about all of your talented neighbors. With your help, maybe they will get famous someday and invite you to their VIP room at the Grammys– where they will give out free iPads as party favors!!

Wow, see that? Watch the show and you could get a free iPad…
It’s fun being a Very Important Person, isn’t it? 🙂
