The Showcase Of Independent Artists» News

Everyone - Please check out the below from Doug Dickens!
For the past two years, I have been doing a showcase of independent artists over on my Facebook Timeline (https://www.facebook.com/douglas.dickens2) and Artist Page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Doug-Dickens/129082457174626). Each week I bring forward new artists that I have found on Reverbnation (http://www.reverbnation.com/dougdickens?profile_view_source=header_icon_nav) and post their music with a short introduction. This is not a review by any standard because I only want to share the wealth of the multitude of amazing talent that, for the most part goes unnoticed in our world of commercial junk that is forcefed to us by the corporate moguls in the entertainment business. No hard feelings here, but our world has changed with the vast power of the internet and I believe it is our time to shine. What is out there on the radio really does not compare to what we have to offer in the creative realm. I continue to do these showcases because of the networking possibilities for the artists as well as attracting new fans for their efforts. There is an event page on Facebook as well (https://www.facebook.com/events/339479352809389/).
I am hoping to take this one step further here on Mixposure radio. Why here you say? Well, I really appreciate the site and the wonderful music that is already presented here as well as the fact that it is totally independent artists without the intrusion of established, mainstream talent. Not only that, but I really feel the love for music of all the artists here and as a new member here have found that there is no 'attitude' but nothing but support for us. It is also nice to have a place where we can set up our own pages. The combination of a viable radio station connected to a website for the artists and the all inclusiveness and cooperation is tantamount to the success of this venture.
I want to thank all those here who have made me feel at home and look forward to creating a radio version of the Showcase of Independent Artists right here on Mixposure. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for making me feel at home.
This coming Tuesday evening's showcase is all but in the can. Up at four yesterday morning working on the play list and I am really excited about the array of artists who we will be playing. Even have a few surprises to share with you all. We will be updating the chat room entrance process and all will be operational. Thanks for all the support here at The Mix and looking forward to havin' a chat on Tuesday. Don't forget to check out the showcase over on Facebook this evening from six thirty to eight eastern standard time. Namaste ....
A hearty thank you to everyone who came to last night's premier of the Showcase of Independent Artists here on Mixposure radio. After the initial jitters, you all made me feel right at home here and Daddy Rabbit was a great co-host and engineer for the evening. You all have no idea the problems he was having on that end; which goes to testify to his dedication to this project and to the community here at the Mix. It was fantastic to work with him and we got to know each other better and better as the night went on. So please stop in next week and see what I mean. Thank you all for your support and we'll see you all next Tuesday evening in the chat. Namaste ....
