Have you ever thought, “How do I get paid for this?” You are doing work you love, like this Show. And you feel as if you are creating value. So the logical question comes to mind, “How can I make some money of this thing?”
I am still trying to figure that out. But I did have an idea. Do some mixtapes and share the revenue with the Artists whose music is a part of them. So, I am in process of doing Good Underground Radio Mixtapes.
Funny thing though. After I signed up for and paid for an account on Bandcamp; I realized that they can only be 290 Megabytes in length. And the first one I did on the above linked page went way over that. So I am going to do shorter versions.
But I am going to do them because some of the Tracks that people are sharing with me for this Podcast and Internet Radio Show are long. And that actually is good. I think so anyway, but this Show is only 28 minutes. So click play and then read on about the Artists. And when you hear something you like; click through and go show them some love.
Like Shaggy and PitBull say, “Only Love” will get you everything you want and need. And bring us together.
Under the Opening Segment, we are listening to Hazy Davey doing “Don’t Go Out with the Bad Guys”. Although he is self taught, I think he really jams on that Axe. Check him out on Soundcloud and let me know what you think.
The First Track is by a local Duo in the Mahoning Valley. Terry and Diane McCabe. The Track is called “Tabloids and Talkshows”. I like the work these two are doing. It is energetic and insightful. Please click on the link above and show them some love, and if you are in the Mahoning Valley; go out and see them live. I am sure you will enjoy it.
Second Track is by an Independent Artist who goes by the name of Sarantos. This guy is everywhere. And one of the reasons I like him is his work ethic. He set a goal to create a new song and video every week. And that was some time ago. And he has an extensive library and following. The Track name is “Do You Think You Can Last?”
I have played it before on the Show. I like the track because it speaks to the idea of becoming famous and successful. And the accompanying responsibilities and pressures that come with fame and success.
Next up, I played some Public Service Announcements for groups I really believe are making a difference in the world. AdoptUSKids and the World Wildlife Fund. Ironically, I reached out to Akron Children’s Hospital so I could support them in this effort. And they refused. I am not sure what to make of that. But the fact is, they do good work there too. And they do not charge patients. So, even though they did not feel that this Show was reaching their demographic; they are still a worthwhile cause.
The Next Track is by a fellow who works under his own name. Ron Ward Jr. The Track is called “Give me Da Funk”. And I like it because the idea kind of reminds me of an old Track by Rick James called “Give it to me baby” I think sometimes, you just have to tell people to give it you. From my experience and from what I have read, People many times do not get what they want because they do not ask.
Then I found this Track on Ipluggers.com. It is by a Producer who goes by the name of Serge Nova. And it features a vocalist who goes by the name Mareena. The Track is called, “Phobias”. I like this track because it speaks to the idea of wanting to be rid of the fears that many times hold us back.
The next Track is “Push Along” by Makail X. What is good about this Track? It speaks to the idea that persistence is an essential element of success. No matter what comes or what the world throws at ya, you got to keep your eyes on the Prize. And Keep Going!
Last Track on today’s Show. “Everything Turns Gray” by a Band out of Cali called Agent Orange. So that is it for today’s Show. As always, any feedback or any ideas on who you may want to hear: Let me know. And in the meantime, never be afraid to make it good.
