This is a short piece promoting an old blog post by a friend that pokes fun at Billy Joel’s:”Piano Man”.
This blog needed a theme upgrade… Partly due to look, partly because it was not properly compatible with WordPress – and not been for years. But… Sunday night, I was casually messing around in a potential theme upgrade and I accidentally activated it. That would not be a big deal, just switch to the other…
Late Ki;u 2002 is when I introduced myself to blogging.
This not meant as criticism but a business advisory from a long-time net-head to an upstart radio station that hasn’t broadvast since December 2021.
As music and 9hoine access evolve, WBmP NetRaDIon a little-known Internet radio station keeps chugging along as-was, 18 years later..
With so many radio stations accepting muic submissions listed on this site, what are the optimum options?
After a critique of GHQ.fm got published, the student-run station added a missing element.
This is not faulting the broadcasting of GHQ.FM, University of Florida’s student-run college radio. This is more aimed at the management of the web presence.
As an update for about the radio submission listing on this site, I touch on my work trying to find and add college stations.
This 3-year-old Spotify playlist has 150+ songs by indie artists. I’m looking for ock, folk, alt/indie, blues, jazz, pop, and country songs that fit in.
I* already said I can’t see. It’s gotten worse.
The Radio.com network is a test of dedication when trying to promote your music and gain airplay on its local affiliate stations.
As the Tampa Bay Lightning’s original blogger, I haven’t said much of anything about these belated playoffs. I’m not interacting much online either. Why?
If the moment is like the trying times of 1964 or 1980, a very influential cultural event could be in the cards for America… And the U.S. could use one.
A pie e of NHL history was the 2004-05 lockout. A story within it was Vincent Lecavalier plaung for AK Baez Kazan during that lost season, and Tom Jones feature article on it.
I round out that every single category of his web site was listed as “Tampa Bay Lightning” in search engine results. One setting or another related the mistake. I wouldn’t think any repeat visitors saw 5he issue. I still feel the need to apologize; it’s a big s red up an embarrassing to have happened.
Just a note on the format – and perhaps the eventual breakup – of the Radio and Streaming Music Submissions Options post.
Are you a musician from Florida? Do you like the tunes from the Sunshine State? There’s a Reddit community for that now…
No, no, I haven’t been hired as Donald Trump’s speech writer. Thank God.
As someone who reflected on the Billboard Music chart archives to discover music as well as be reminded of classics from days-gone-by, I was a little taken aback gy the new paywall Gillghoard has put into place. Fees for access are growing common on the Interweb, but something like this? Yike$!.Nice cost to reflect on…

Let me stress outright: This is a personal weblog. All content on the site is of a variety of subject matters by a lone author: Me. Hi. There is a section for “Guest Writers”, but that content is literally writing penned by personal guests/friends (and hasn’t been used for more than 15 years). I am…

This blog now has polling options. Rah.
Just one example of how the deal-a-day web site can save you cash.
After a month on a new look, I went back to the old look.
The Tampa Bay Lightning blogosphere isn’t much of a blogosphere at all.
I’ve spent a bit of time the past month or two looking to simply upgrade The WordPress theme for this site. Too often the look isn’t something I want to build around. Lately, I’ve been finding interesting themes that have flaws that I can’t correct. It’s a distraction from writing, so I’m a little lapsed…
“Twinle Twinkle Little Star” turned to the Dark Side during a recitation. It’s video that’s gone viral on Twitter. And it’s funny.
With the start of the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals, this long-time hockey blogger pulls up his words from 2014 and why he loves the Cup.
On a small-time indie radio station, the last thing you expect to cross is a member of the Rock Hall of Fame…
JohnnyFonts.com has a new site logo! And maybe, just maybe, it’ll have a new theme sometime soon.
I bought a domain name and am now wondering what to do with it.
Posted through Twitter so it’s open for public voting – how often do Spotify listeners buy songs they dig that they heard on a playlist?
It’s nice to be reached out to and to see positive feedback when a musician releases new tunes. Vic Cracknell has done just that…
If only more people went to their brains when pissed off…

In simplicity, a Spotify playlist having followers does not mean they are playlist listeners.
There’s a new Spotify playlist that highlights adult contemporary songs by Tampa Bay based musical artists. I’m looking for more to highlight too.
In 2015 I got Kevin Pollak to allude to a little anecdote he had during filming of “A Few Good Men”.
A playlist of current soft rock and easy listening on Spotify – open to listeners and for submissions.
Just a heads up for musical artists who are looking to promote their tunes on Spotify as well as for people running niche playlists who want to promote that list, there’s a place for that. The Spotify Community is a message forum area devoted to the Spotify platform, covering a lot of areas of the…
Music Tampa Bay‘s annual Top 100 lists (which ran from 2008 through 2017) featured a wide swath of music — we’re talking genres and time-of-publication. Some of the songs were relatively new releases, some were much older. All of them were from artists derived from the Tampa Bay and west central Florida area. I use that…
In spring of 2017, I took to the task of taking aMusic Tampa Bay Top 100 list of 2016 post was an attempt at exposure for the artists and their work that went further than the hyper-local radio broadcasts and its online music stream. I’m taking things a step further though I don’t know if…
