holy hell this is going to be a packed newsreel. JEM WHERE ARE YOU!!!! WE NEED YOUR NEWSREELNESS!!!!
anyway - i'll carry on as best i can.
first of all, way to go Feel Never Real for winning our first round of our Music Match (battle of bands is so what - 80s?) and we will be setting up october soon! voting will shift to 1 week vs 3 and decembers contest will be the Feel Never Real and the next 2 winners with iceberg doing an in depth interview and featured story for the winning band in December! from there we plan to start an awards for 2017 and will be gathering the details soon, but yea - we're talking about this time NEXT year for major movement.
reverb nation. so far we're at 30 bands and will be adding more as we find them. the one thing i found in going through so many submissions is the flaming skull is seriously overused and some bands are still using polariods for cover shots. take your look seriously people - it could well lead to someone listening or not. anyway - you'll see me (iceberg) doing several features of reverb bands and even next week he'll be on round 2 of band introductions.
the twisted one will be revamping our stream to remove some dusty music and adding these in for your to check out and we do still keep "known" nationals in rotation so people hear something familiar from time to time, IF they're new to renegade.
speaking of the twisted one - welcome him back to the air! look for details on the facebook page and here as we do have a few shows to adjust and changes to our calendar.
if ANYONE knows how to get tunein to do a freaking thing on updating our profile - please let us know. we're being ignored more than i was during prom season in high school and it's getting seriously annoying. til then, we'll keep on rocking and they can catch up.
we've had some hiccups in our stream lately and frankly - we're becoming less and less fans of spacial audios SAM. we're looking at alternatives that include even going to ANOTHER vps to host nothing but the automation. we're kicking this up, fixing glitches that come with growth and hey - growing!
that's it for now - please help by spreading the word and links to get more people to listen to this type of music. you can hear corp sponsored rock anywhere and that's why we don't do that. we're renegades. :)
#followarenegade - we rock.
