On March 11th, I posted a blog about changing things up on the radio station; switching to a local-artist-only approach. I'd be featuring music from local artists, and replaying their Artist Spotlight interviews on a rotating schedule. Initially, that was working well, until the radio automation software I was using began to exhibit some odd behavior; it decided to not want to tell time correctly anymore. If you tuned in expecting to hear an interview, but had music instead, I apologize for that.
After long hours of research, I came upon a new program which did the job far better, and gave me the chance to build a more-refined schedule and structure that I am proud to launch today.
The programming on JBRecording Radio is going to follow a more structured schedule in the form of Shows. I'm in the process of developing some new shows that I'll be revealing at a later date, but as of this launch the following are some of the shows you'll be seeing on the station:
- Artist Spotlight - Live interviews and performances by local musicians.
- Artist Mix - A rotating mix of music from the artists interviewed and featured on the Spotlight shows.
- Sessions @ JBRecording - A mix of the live performances from Artist Spotlight shows and music recorded, mixed, and/or mastered here at JBRecording.
In the months to come, we'll be hearing from some film composers, jazz artists, classical artists, as well as artists from different parts of the country. I'm very excited for the future of JBRecording Radio, and am grateful to those who have been a part of it thus far and have helped make it successful.
This was one of my more memorable Spotlight shows. This was the first on-location interview I did, hauling a portable rig into Manhattan and broadcasting from an "undisclosed location". We made reference to the "concrete cell" we were in because it was exactly that; a concrete cell with acoustic treatment on the walls and no circulation. Regardless of the space...Read More

Just finished the latest Artist Spotlight show with Michael Christopher, an up-and-coming country music star from the Pittsburgh, PA area. Check out the interview, where we talked about how he discovered his passion for music in a truly unique way. I truly enjoyed getting to know Michael and hearing his story. If you have a story to share about your music, e-mail me if you'd like to do a show and we can get your message out there. Enjoy!
Just had the first Artist Spotlight of 2014 with Joey Loglisci! Check out the replay here. This was also the first Skype-in interview; we decided on this at the last minute due to the wonky winter weather conditions we've been experiencing here on the East Coast.
I really enjoyed speaking with Joey about his history and musical upbringing. We listened to a few of his tracks from previous albums, and even heard a snippet of what's to come on his Summer 2014 EP, being recorded and produced right here at JBRecording.
Take a listen, and enjoy the show!
Just wanted to wish everyone out there a very happy, healthy, and safe New Year. Great things are coming in 2014! We did a special 2 hour countdown to 2014 show, featuring a special guest co-host, Miss Cofi Peel! And, for the first time, we had some folks CALL IN to talk to us. Lots of fun!
Check it out here, enjoy! If you want to do your own radio show, JBRecording is the place to do it. E-mail me and we'll make it happen.
Have a great 2014!
