I’m sure you guys know by now what music means to me. I started this website because I care more about the music business then even some musicians. I’ve gotten to meet and interview musicians all over the world and it’s been amazing to see all the talent out there. I’ve seen musicians with hardly any fan base move on to become some of the biggest names in the indie scene. They’ve taught me that hard work pays off as long as you have the passion for what you do.
Being a radio host is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. I just used to do so many things I never had time. I also never knew how to start one. I didn’t have the money to pay for the “free to download” music because you still need to pay for the licenses to use the songs for radio. The only ones that were actually free were generic instrumental garbage. If I was gonna start my own radio show I wanted it to be the best because I don’t give anything less than my best and my fans deserve it. Doing this website I’ve built so many awesome friendships with musicians that it now allows me to use their sogns with their permission. Something that I was never able to do before because I didn’t have a lot of connections. I knew a few bands here and there but this website has allowed me to make friends with a sea of musicians. I am so thankful for all of them.
The hardest thing for me to think about was how I should approach my debut to radio on Monday (tomorrow). I knew I wanted more music than me talking but I also enjoy talking and telling stories and making jokes. I used to be an actor. I was a podcaster. I used to be a fairly popular youtuber. It’s in my blood to entertain people. I wasn’t sure if I should be a funny radio host. If I should be a controversial host who swears all the time (that was my gimmick once upon a time). I wasn’t sure if I should just be me. I thought long and hard about which persona I wanted to be. I decided that I just wanted to be me. I wanted to inspire people. I wanted people to be as passionate about the music as I am.
I feel like I am the only radio host in the world who cares about every single song. These songs were all provided by people I became friends with. They mean something to me which makes their music mean something to me. I know all these guys very well and I’m proud of all of them. I don’t want my show to be about me. I want it to be about the music. That’s why I started this website and that’s why I want to do radio. I also want to be real. It’s always been my greatest strength and it’s what has made me different from everyone else. I have real stories to tell from my life and life in general. I have thoughts about things going on in the world. if something is bothering me or I’m happy about something I want to share what i’m feeling with the world. There are people out there that can relate. I don’t want to sound professional or like every other radio host. I want to be me. If I want to go on a 30 minute rant about how Tony Robbins is the biggest idiot in the world for his opinions on the Me Too movement I will do so. if I want to talk for 30 minutes about how Jenna Marbles is my favorite person in the world I will do so. I hope you all join me on my new journey and feel free to follow my new radio show at https://www.spreaker.com/show/2890780 it is every weekday (except tuesdays) at 8pm ET and my other twitter account at https://twitter.com/Down2JamRadio
