My First Live Record: The New Limits Live at WEMF

My Band The New Limits just released an album of songs recorded live on the air at WEMF Cambridge earlier this year. The record features 3 new songs and 2 tracks from our January 2015 EP “Pressure Up.” I’m really proud of it.  (more…)

Talking Music Marketing and Promotion with D.I.WHY Radio

This past Sunday I was invited into the WEMF’s D.I.WHY radio show. Hosted by Andrew “F-Word” Lowery of SHOP Productions, Meracula, and FORT! The Band, the show seeks to explore DIY methods, processes, and ethics as it pertains to the music business. The topic for this week’s show was “Promotion and How to be a Viral Internet Sensation.” Other guests included the folks behind the Boston Compass/Boston Hassle and the band Sexy Coyote. We discussed methods of promoting one’s band, being a part of a community, and making your music accessible. It was a really great conversation and I enjoyed learning from the other folks on the panel. We also enjoyed a live performance from Sexy Coyote. Listen below. (more…)

WHUS Playlist – 7/10/08

Sadly, this was my last show (this time around) on WHUS. I seem to have trouble staying away from UConn so I can’t see this as my last time working with the station. In addition, there’s no reason you won’t find me webcasting, podcasting, or doing a show at another community station in the future. The theme for this trip was centered more around music that was a big deal to me, thus I did not include as many new releases as I usually do.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in.
