Q: How long have you been broadcasting?
A: Bohemio Radio has been broadcasting since December of 2007
Q: In your opinion, what does a good song need to consist of?
A: A simple melodic progression, accompanied by harmony, rhythm, & soul.
Q: What is your favorite band or favorite genre of music and why?
A: I prefer music that has not been scathed by the commercial mainstream. Genres like food keep the menu interesting as all palatable substances have their place in time.
Q: What changes in content laws, broadcasting rights, etc. have affected you most?
A: Performance rights fees and the FCC
Q: A recent study found blogs to be more effective than MySpace in generating album sales, do you feel podcasts have that power?
A: MySpace is a wonderful platform for marketing; however it requires extended effort from the artist to promote their successes. In a information hungry society with little time or none at all, a podcast can supply you with the extended entertainment at minimal efforts.
