Call in to a #classicalmusic radio show?

I am excited to let you know about From The Podium, a radio show and podcast that I am producing and hosting, and that YOU can call in to…

This is not only expanding the more than 40 episodes of my two-minute podcast Stephen’s Classical Rate N Slate to a full hour each week, but From The Podium will be LIVE!

It took a while to pull together a fabulous team of creative and technical talent from all over the place to make this show happen, including Lalo Schifrin’s Music Tech, a #classicalmusic fan club, as well as an FM/AM radio station that first aired in 1948. Today, we have already raised over $200 toward our goal of $2,500 and are reaching out to ask you to consider making a donation.

Why radio and podcast?

Because in 2015 more than half the population of the USA discovered new music via the radio, and last year podcast listenership shot up 23%, resulting in the same percentage of the US listening to podcasts as uses Twitter (21%) – that’s HUGE!

But the project has reached a critical point:

Everything is in place to broadcast and distribute our first four episodes, except the studio costs and music licensing fees. That’s why your contribution is so critical right now. We cannot launch at 8am on Saturday, November 4 without your support.

I, for one, really appreciate the support that has already been received, and thank YOU for considering adding to their number and donations.

The really exciting part is that as a supporter, you will be able to call the radio show LIVE and make a classical music request, or even just join in the chat based on the topic of the day!

Who knows, maybe the show’s guest will chat with you, too…

Remember:

Make a donation and you will be the first to know how to listen when we launch at 8am on Saturday, November 4, 2017.

You’ll need that info so you can call in!

Thank you in advance for your generous support.

ONLINE RADIO STATION CONSIDERING A PROGRAM DEDICATED TO CLASSICAL PERCUSSION MUSIC

Classic Pinellas Radio Founder, Conductor Composer Stephen P Brown, is committed to bringing good percussion music to life.

Classic Pinellas RadioLaunched earlier in 2016, Classic Pinellas Radio has already had an impact in the local Tampa Bay arts scene, and regularly plays globally to listeners as far as Australia and Germany. The goal of the station is to expose “normal people” to snippets of listenable classical music much like the highly successful Classic FM radio station in the UK has done for almost 25 years.

My new book!

Some of the best advice to help you perform more, and better!

book_BoostYourConcertCareerNow_Cover160426aThe first part of this calendar year saw some extraordinary activity on my website. I wrote a bunch of articles about performing more, performing better, and generally what you need to do to be more effective in sharing live music with others.

It was one of the most thrilling online seasons I have experienced, with a LOT of very engaging emails from readers.

Thank you.

So you know what I decided to do?

I collated them into one little volume of Impact!
