Orientation under way!

Just got back from a group orientation with Marc Bartholomew from the Maine Radio Project! Got to meet the group of new folks starting shows, too, and it seems like there will be a nice variety on the air real soon! Time to really push those bands to get their music to me, so I can promote them on the show. When I'm ready - hopefully soon - I can set up a time to do my first show test with Marc on the air! I'm very excited!

Finally!

I have finally received word that I can attend training with Marc Bartholomew for a show on the Maine Radio Project, which is a "free-form internet radio station, supporting the creative community of Portland, Maine, and beyond." Here is the official site: Maine Radio Project and here is the Facebook page: MRP's Facebook

There are several noteworthy shows that you can listen to via streaming internet radio, directly from the site, or through your iTunes. The most popular I've seen and heard so far are The Hessian Sessions w/ Angus & Salli and Monstah McNaasty. Be sure to check them out!

The name of my show is tentatively "Bent Radio", but I am going to mull it over while working on my first broadcast. I have an outline already made up...now I just need to start gathering the music. The focus of my show will be the schedule of Geno's Rock Club, featuring music by bands that will be playing the following week, music they are influenced by, event announcements and special features! I can't wait to see if I can pull it off...
