When I first started the radio station here at JBRecording, I didn't have a clear path or plan in mind. My intention was for it to be a virtual stage for anyone to perform on, to just about any audience. So far, it's been a great way for local artists to showcase their music through my periodic Artist Spotlight shows. I've been having a phenomenal time getting to know some great local artists and hear some fantastic music.
If you haven't yet, please check out the radio page and listen to some of the past shows. What started out as myself and a few of my band mates talking about past gigs that were enjoyable, has evolved into a formatted show that I'm very proud of, and am very excited to bring future artists to this environment.
One thing had bugged me, though. What about the off-time? The times when I wasn't "live", or broadcasting a special event? I just had a playlist of a few hours worth of material from major label artists that would play.
That's all well and good, but we all have things that can accomplish that; iTunes Radio, Pandora, iHeart Radio, etc. We don't need to reinvent the wheel, so I've decided it's time to change things up a little.
Starting Monday, March 10th, JBRecording Radio will feature all original music by the artist's highlighted on the Artist Spotlight shows done so far.
This means that at any time you stop by the website, or tune in, you'll be able to catch ORIGINAL content by artists who have been a part of my Artist Spotlight series. As of this post, you'll be hearing from such artists as ASH, Michael Christopher, Joey Loglisci, and Faces East to name a few, but this list is forever growing.
If you've been featured on an Artist Spotlight, and have material you'd like included, e-mail me with high resolution MP3 files (minimum 192kbps) as many songs as you'd like. Please be aware of the size of your e-mail, one song per e-mail is probably a safe way to do it. If you've not been on a Spotlight show, but would like to, shoot me an e-mail and we'll set up a show from there.
I'm excited for the new change to go into effect, and to start bringing original music to JBRecording radio!
