Iowa Blues Showcase Podcast

So a lot of changes here at the Blues Historian.  First the radio station has been long gone.  Live 365 either went out of business, or was sold to someone else, and bye bye Iowa blues on internet radio.  However, one of my long term goals is finally coming true, and that is the variety and blues show the Iowa Blues Showcase is finally going to be a real thing.  Technology has come a long way since the early 2000s when I was trying to get a local blues radio program on the air.   So many struggles, and trying to please program directors, sound men, engineers, etc, etc, etc,   There was just so many gate keepers that it was impossible to get everything lined up to get a show on the air.  However, now technology has made it easier and easier to produce and publish music online.  Especially the growth of Podcasting, much like everything else in the music business, the middle men have been taken out and the artists can pretty much do what they please.  Yet, the problem with freedom is that you have a ton of choices, and boy is the field crowded!  YIKES!!!!!  

The nice thing is that the Iowa Blues Showcase doesn't have to start from scratch since long time readers of the blog know about it, and even though I have been a lazy blues historian lately, this blog amazingly still pulls in visitors daily.  Most days about 100 of you are digging through the archives, and just two days ago 250 of you just showed up for no reason.  Thanks to you this decrepit blog still functions.  For the next few days I will be working on updating and fixing issues with the blog.  I will also try to delete posts that have no content.  (which will be hard considering there is several thousand posts)  Finally I will add new content including the return of the Iowa Blues Showcase!


That link above is your ticket to the podcast.  through this month it will be archived shows that you probably never have listened to, or if you did you were one of the few who caught it on the old Iowa Blues Showcase radio show on Live 365.   In July we start recording new shows so you definitely want to subscribe to the new podcast.  

BTW, the show will be recorded live once a month.  I will let you know the time and place so if you are interested in performing, or attending let me know by commenting, or emailing me.  

I look forward to finally getting this old blog back up and running.  I know, I have promised it before, but I finally have a lot to write about the blues again, and hey its time to get thing started.
