Well, Iowa Music Showcase is one year old!
Not quite as popular as I hoped it be, but it is getting noticed.
We've been mentioned on a few other podcasts. Had one episode with over 200 listens, and a couple more with over 100. And every episode seems to have at least 50 listens from our various locations, Bandcamp, YouTube, and SoundCloud.
We've also had some big names on here, like Greg Brown and The Envy Corps.
And shortly after Green Death was on our show, they signed on to a major label! - The same could happen to you! Send your submission today!
And Patresa Hartman was only making 1 lousy cent a week off Spotify. But on the week she was on IMSC, it quadrupled to 4 cents!
And coming later in the year, we will have a bunch of genre-based shows including another metal show and a classical music show!
Also another guest producer is coming probably in March. And February will include the long delayed Peace, Love, and Stuff retrospective.
And I still have a goal of getting Slipknot on this show somehow! So if you know anybody from the Slipknot camp, help me out!
Anyhoo, this episode features songs from the most listened to, read, watched, or downloaded blog and/or podcast we put out.
