I was sitting in a coffee shop listening to a man and his guitar last week, thinking about how the independent music scene works. The musician plays his music at some sort of venue. If people don’t like it, they ignore it or leave. On the other hand, if they like what they hear, they will usually toss a few bucks into the tip jar. If they really like it, they will get on the artist’s mailing list and make it a point to catch their show often.

I have decided that my podcast should operate much the same way. I’m going to (1) do the show for love, because I really do LOVE doing this show, (2) set out a virtual tip jar that you may use if you’d like to help me with the expenses of doing a podcast, (3) invite you to subscribe so you can “follow me around” so to speak.

I was working hard at getting sponsors for the podcast, but decided to abandon the effort. It caused me to stress too much over the number of listeners the program has. It took my focus away from the purpose of the podcast — to entertain you and support the musicians. The hobby I love was turning into a business. Who knows, there may come a time for that, but this is not the time.

As always, thanks for listening … and let the music play …..

The Internet is so cool because it is global. I’m a geek and I understand the technology but the whole concept still blows me away. As it worked out this week, we spend a lot of time overseas from Hillsboro, Oregon, where I produce the program. Sit back and enjoy.
