On Sunday (7.21.13), my first radio show, Jammin Jukebox Radio, celebrated its 1-yr anniversary of its debut and also 1-yr of broadcasting on Blogtalk Radio (BTR). It was quite a show with over 200 live listeners and LOTS of great music!
Suffice it to say, when I began my show a year ago, I didn't really know what to expect. My goal was to play Indie artists' music and hope that one person out there would listen, like, and buy it. It's incomprehensible to me that over 750K listeners have heard the nearly 200 Indie artist interviews and scores of music. The platform that BTR has provided for me to help these Indie artists be heard has helped open doors and take them to new heights not yet realized. Many of the Indies have gone on to do multiple interviews, put out more awesome music, and some have even been signed to record labels. It's been an amazing journey for which I am extremely grateful! None of this would have been possible, however, had God not given me a deep love and passion for music & radio and orchestrated events in my own life that brought me to BTR and this mission to serve these Indies in a way like never before.
So Year 2 is officially underway. Our 1st show of this 2nd year took place on 7.23.13 with a return guest from our 1st year, Margo Rey. She recently released the remake of the hit, "Tempted", originally done by the former 80s band, Squeeze. The single broke into the Billboard Top 20 AC Chart; making this Margo's 4th single to make it onto the Billboard's Top 20. Quite an accomplishment to be sure!
Margo also shared about an organization very near and dear to her, called Brides Against Breast Cancer for which she has been appointed as National Ambassador. She, herself, is a two-time cancer survivor. Her hit, "Let the Rain," a top 20 Billboard charting song, has been selected by the organization as the theme song for a new BABC nationwide campaign.
BABC accepts bridal gown donations that are then sold to brides-to-be for a fraction of their original cost. Proceeds then go towards Breast Cancer research. Donors can also donate via text at the banner below.
I'd say Year 2 is off to a fabulous start and what better way to kick it off than speaking with the lovely and immensely talented, Margo Rey, about an awesome cause. It was great speaking with her again and look forward to having her back on the show in the very near future.
Stay tuned...Year 2 is gonna rock your socks off!
