A Tremendous Resource
Dave Jackson works his tail off trying to get the resources and links that help each of us become more successful in our musician careers. He provides regular updates and information that has helped me time and time again. The interviews that he often holds with his guests are full of great real-life experiences and learning opportunities. We can often learn from not only the successes, but also the failures that are presented in this show. I can't miss an episode of this podcast!
Well Rounded Resource for Indie Musicians
I have over 20 years of expereince in the music business, in everything from being in a signed band, tourning, radio airplay, national television, PR, record labels etc.. I am constantly learning and this podcast has a very well rounded set of topics. From recording to promotion to gigging, there's always somthing interesting. Keep it up!
I like it......
I have learned alot from Dave's podcast. Marketed a CD of my own- kinda helped make a dream come true. Maybe someday he'll use one of my "tales from the road" that I send in.....
