Back in the day Fervor Records founder and current CEO, David Hilker, was touring, recording and fronting his Rock outfit, 1933. On 12.13.2013, The Carrie Diaries will feature one of 1933’s recordings from 1984 in episode 207. That’s a lot of numbers but don’t get confused. Check out Hilker’s song, Send A Signal To The Heart, which he penned with the band’s keyboardist, Geoff Grace. It’s also a wonderful tribute to the bands bassist, Curtiss Smith, who unfortunately passed away last month.Read More
