Local bar looking to launch an internet show.

Saddle Ridge Saloon owner Ronnie James thinks old-fashioned television broadcasts will be going the way of VHS pretty soon. That’s why he beams the internet-only Rock Me TV four times a week on his bar’s dozens of screens. “Everything’s going to the internet, and I’m riding that wave,” he says.

James is doing his part by auditioning local Carmen Elektra and Pamela Andreson wannabes to host a locally produced live music show for Rock Me TV that’s aimed exclusively at clubhoppers. Just drop by the bar and tell him you’ve got what it takes. “I know she’s here somewhere,” he says. “There’s a lot of people who want national exposure.” While the music-oriented Rock Me TV’s lineup includes programs like Hip-Hop Boot Camp and Hard Rock Live, James hopes his new show on the N.Y.C.-based network will give Clevelanders a much-needed entertainment boost. He’s even scouting local clubs for up-and-coming bands for the program, which doesn’t have a debut date yet. “There’s so much talent in this city,” he says.
