Interview Program Uses A New Approach to Engage Artists, Hosts and Listeners
It happens on Sunday Brunch: The First and Last Song, a new blog talk radio program produced by Creator’s Parrot channel featuring conversations with and the music of a variety of celebrity and independent musicians, songwriters, plus other music industry professionals.
The series will celebrate music artists and the universal vibrational language of music as a creative healing force.
Host and producer, Valerie Michele Oliver, views Sunday Brunch: The First and Last Song as a way to work in a complementary fashion with music artists, music publicists, and other music radio and blog talk radio hosts through their participation as either interview guests or guest co-hosts.
There’s increased opportunity to discover new artists and new fans across programs when hosts let their listeners know they will be co-hosting an episode of Sunday Brunch: The First and Last Song. The artists have an opportunity to get booked on a co-host’s show in the future.” Guest co-hosts may be from any industry area as long as they have a passion for music and supporting artists.
Neil Alexander, musician, songwriter, producer, former keyboardist for the Pink Floyed Tribute band, The Machine, and leader of the jazz/fusion/ambient/funk/electronica band, NAIL, has joined as a co-host. Val shared the idea of co-hosting a show called, “The Last Song” with him and Neil thought it was way too morbid. Guests have begun to register to be booked for the show including Georgie Porgie (Billboard magazine’s choice for one of the Top 10 Dance/Club Play Artists of the Decade); EJ Flavors and Doug Ramsay (Mr. Fresh), two of the official bloggers for the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards in the R&B and Jazz categories; Jazz/Nu-Jazz/Gospel Bassist and Author Russel Blake; the cool, golden, and inspirational Jazz vocalist, Elli Fordyce; and a number of other artists representing various genres discovered through IMRadio, ReverbNation, and other music services.
The first person to join as a guest co-host is Jon Hansen, one of the top hosts on Blog Talk Radio. Jon is committed to cross-promotion and featuring more music industry profiles on his show focusing on artists and the business.
This led to her launching a music project to attract artists to produce, arrange, record, share and distribute songs she has written and dedicated as energy to end child abuse and neglect globally through the power of attraction and intent (Reach 4 Freedom: Heal Child Abuse and Neglect). According to Val, “This program is another way to add more power to the Reach 4 Freedom project,” stated Val. “People can support answers and solutions to help end and heal child abuse by participating in or listening to the program. Featured artists, guest co-hosts, and listeners can call into the program switchboard using the telephone number: (347) 202-0238, or may access it Skype-to-Skype by clicking a Skpye icon on the Creator’s Parrot channel page if they have the service. People can listen to the show live from the same page or by dialing the program switchboard number. The program premieres on Sunday, January 17 at 3:00 PM.
