Q: How long have you been broadcasting/blogging?
A: I have been broadcasting in community and college setting for over 6 years now and i have been "blogging" for about 4 of those years.
Q: In your opinion, what does a good song need to consist of?
A: A good song needs to play well with others!
Q: What is your favorite band or favorite genre of music and why?
A: Such a difficult thing to narrow down since the desired sounds change constantly based on so many uncontrolled factors. I don't care much for assigning "genres" to art..either its for me or it isn't....I guess if my life depended on answering this I would without hesitation say that Club d'Elf would be the band I call my favorite since they mix and blend so many varieties of sound into everything they do live or otherwise.
Q: What changes in content laws, broadcasting rights, etc. have affected you most?
A: You know, I think I just don't like the meddling of authority on what I am supposed to form my own opinions about. But as I pay attention to what is going on and follow it to the edges----I just appreciate the opportunity to introduce people to new sounds that I just play along nicely to be able to share. But ask me again some other time and I'm sure to have a different answer.
Q: A recent study found blogs to be more effective than MySpace in generating album sales, do you feel that that is a true statement?
A: Well, I hope that my efforts on greenarrowradio.com help generate listening ears which will turn into trying to find out more about the artist..including purchasing some of their art. I see myspace for me as a great avenue to get people over to greenarrowradio.com and for me an easier way to check out music with the intention to purchase it ... even if it is one tune at a time. More power to all these ways of supporting that something that does seem to unite many.
