In 1990, I was signed to Elektra Records by a man who loves music very, very much. My A & R (artist & repetoire) man was Howard Thompson, who also signed the Sugarcubes, 10,000 Maniacs, Billy Bragg and many others I can’t think of at the moment, but you get the picture.
To this day, I’m still friends with and very grateful to Howard for believing in me all those years back. So, now, I’d like to return the favor by chatting up his online broadband. I promise you’ll enjoy his taste in music!
Since “Cake” took to the “broadbands” three weeks ago, my audience has increased significantly and my ranking (as of today) is 2,364 out of approx 12,000 stations on the Live 365 Network. Hurrah, another slice please!
A few more listeners will probably put me into the top 2000, so keep spreading the word and if you have a web-site or a blog, please feel free to link us.
Thanks for the mentions Angel CC, Gary L. and Hank from Wormburner. You guys get EXTRA icing.
