The third one being the most important.

I had someone who found me on Facebook who wanted me to do an hour long show of Rock because I knew about Rock music. but 26 shows later I made it an hour of Metal and some rock with a lot of people taking notice. Another connection got me where I am now by doing what I love for that sole purpose.

It also takes a great deal of time to do the show I do because I over think everything. I take hours to make a playlist and after that listen back to it to see if it flows together or not. My show premiers at 5am on Tuesdays, some weeks I get done recording at 10PM Monday to send it to the stations because I want it to be the most up to date best show I can make it.

But again, you gotta have all 3 of those to make it happen, no matter what style of music you play.
Thanks for the fantastic information. I have plenty of the first 2 but 3....... not so much.... any tips to help me change that?

That's where it becomes tough. My connections found me first before I found them. Like Facebook for example I always talk about music and stuff like that exposing people to music they may not know yet. Ever since I got Facebook. Id go to the shows and just talk with the bands afterwards and just show my appreciation for good music.

I feel very fortunate to be where I'm at right now. It all just fell into place as it should. I guess the best way to go about it is to go the free, public or internet radio route and promote yourself and what you are able to offer for a show. You gotta make it something that is not happening on that current station, or something that is an improvement over what they have.

Its a very tough route. I don't know how I could have done it anyother way then I have.

Parkway Drive should be on every show haha.

You should do a hardcore dedicated episode.

Bad Religion is my favorite punk band of all time. I was going to play You, but I needed a song just a little bit longer

I only really like the first album.

I was planning on doing at least an hour of Hardcore along with the Terror interview, but since that fell through it didn't happen, but the next Hardcore band I interview I will do it.
