JBRecording Radio v2.0 Launches TODAY

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. 

 

Big News for JBRecording Radio!

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! 

 

Artist Spotlight: Michael Christopher

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! 

Check out the Latest Artist Spotlight Archive: Joey Loglisci

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!

Happy New Year!

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! 

ASH Artist Spotlight Preview

We've got a great Artist Spotlight show booked for October! Check out a little preview here - ASH, soulful singer/songwriter from Brooklyn stopped by the studio just to say hello and finish off some vocals on "Rush Into Love", which is coming out on Monday at the Artist Spotlight show! 

You can tune in at www.jbrecording.com/radio from any mobile device or computer, and even check out the show once it's aired on that same page shortly thereafter. Enjoy!
