Six Posts on Music – to start the New Year

January 4, 2015

Six Posts on Music. In the last week, I have accumulated a lot of ideas for my posts on music, (getting ready for a big video premiere later this week. So I thought I’d combine them all into one big 6 PART POST:

===========================
CONTENTS

1. Youtube is the world’s biggest radio station

2. I Broke I-Tunes!

3. Tiny Desk Concert Contest – well am I banned or not?

4. Wo Fat (my studio friends) – Named by NPR as one of the 10 best heavy Metal Bands

5. Featuring Five – 5 of my Rockabilly Songs

6. CDBaby, Was this the biggest?

=========================
1. YOUTUBE IS THE WORLD’S BIGGEST RADIO STATION

Did you know this? I didn’t.

CDBaby in an article called, “What you need to know about today’s music business if you’re returning after a long break”, says:
… YouTube might be more important than anything else in your music career
… besides the music itself, of course.

YouTube has become the #1 search engine for music. It’s also the #1 preferred listening platform for younger music fans. Plus, YouTube videos are highly sharable via social media. … You don’t have to make a dozen fancy music videos, but you should think about at least uploading album-art videos for every song.

YOUTUBE CHANNEL, features all my 70 videos – with a new one coming in a day

=============================
2. I BROKE I-TUNES

When you put your music on CDBaby*, the biggest indie music site on the net, they put it on all the other major music sites including I-Tunes.

I noticed that all my songs were posted and 8 of the 9 cds were posted within a day or so. But when I went to the I-tunes store there was no #5 cd. The songs from #5 were there, but you couldn’t buy the cd. Instead you would get this message, pop-up:
The item you’ve requested is not currently available in the U.S. store.

When I asked CDBaby about this, they told me:
Thanks for writing. Unfortunately, it looks like there has been a small glitch over at iTunes that is preventing certain tracks/albums from going up completely. iTunes is aware of the current issue and they are working diligently to see it resolved.
Note that this is affecting hundreds of titles on iTunes, not just CD Baby clients.
There is a fix being worked on right now and the issue should be resolved shortly. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Hope this helps. Let us know if you have further questions or concerns.
Thanks, Stephfon CD Baby Customer Service

Seems the only logical explanation is that when Hunkasaurus got on there it BROKE the system!?! LOL

3. NPR RADIO’S TINY DESK CONCERT CONTEST – WELL AM I BANNED?

I have been having a feud with NPR music website – which started when they banned all my comments on music – too challenging comments?? Bob Boilan is most likely the host that blocked me. Recently I wrote:

NPR, There’s a Tiny Desk Concert contest I’d like to enter. I’ve just released a 9 CD 10 year music project and it would be just right to play now. But because I’ve been blocked from any music comment on NPR and get the following message when I try:
We are unable to post your comment because you have been blocked by NPR All Songs Considered. Find out more.
I have a feeling that there is no way I would have a fair chance to even be allowed to submit.
I’m being blocked because I am leading a peaceful music revolution for the best of indies and I often am tough on bad corporate generic music.. This has upset NPR music and I’ve been blocked. My question is am I blocked from any chance of winning the contest from the start?
Please pass a copy to Bob Boilan too Thanks.

Yes, I’ve put them on the spot! Glad to do it too. I’ve sent the above 3 times and never got any answer! Why worry about NPR? It’s really become the center of most music coverage on the net! So it’s a big deal for all new musicians.

4. WO FAT ( friends) NAMED AS ONE OF THE 10 BEST HEAVY METAL BANDS

The trio that own and run the studio where I record. Kent, Michael, and Tim, are also the heavy metal band Wo Fat. Wo Fat was named as one of the NPR end of the year, 10 best heavy metal bands, list. Well done guys! This url tells about it and gives a sample from their latest release! They may be touring near you soon too!

5. FEATURING FOUR – FOUR OF MY ROCKABILLY SONGS:

Kinda thought my rockabilly tunes would be the first of my originals, from my big 150 song project*, to get the attention ….be my groundbreakers …. not yet.

But here are 4 worth a 2nd look (and remember this is one old cheap standard 1964 Silvertone guitar, played only one time – in what I call a ‘combo guitar style” where you play bass, lead, and rhythm all at once.)

DANCING CROSS THE MOON

CATS MEOW

LOVEY

SHAKE, SHOUT, AND GO

=============================

6. CDBABY WAS THIS THE BIGGEST?

When I posted my big music project on CDBaby*, I asked them if it was the biggest new release they had ever received?

CDBaby:
Here’s a question just for fun. This week I released a 9 CD, project on CDBaby under the name, Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar. Posted 11/19/14.
This was a 10 year music project – and before I get to my question I wanted to thank you guys for all you did to help in posting all these songs. The page looks great and the music samples sound first rate!
Here’s my question – was that a record for CDBaby?  Has any other single artist posted a 9 CD 150 song set of new recordings onto CDBaby before?
Curious to know.

Hey Tom,
Sorry but there is not an easy way for us to find that out.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

So it seems that question is still up in the air – or up in the sound waves! But I personally think, I’m the one to beat on this!
