Welcome to my new Christian Hard Rock blog. Here I'll be talking about new music releases, and my efforts to promote Christian bands and bands full of Christians through my Grooveshark Broadcast, Twitter Account, and Facebook Page.
In case you didn't know, Grooveshark makes it possible for anyone to create a radio station, and control the playlist completely. This enables me to share my favorite music with the world, and hopefully introduce people to bands that they didn't know were around.
So far, I've managed to accumulate over 30k plays (Number of songs broadcast * the number of listeners at that time, including myself), and currently lead the Christian Rock genre in play count for the year. However, the disparity between the popularity of Christian Rock broadcasts and secular broadcasts on Grooveshark is something I'd like to work to change.
I don't intend to do anything to "fool" people into trying out my broadcast, or change the name to hide the fact that I'm playing music by Christians, for Christians. I'd like to build a following, and provide a broadcast that plays the kinds of music many of us want to listen to that is a bit harder than what's on the majority of CCM Radio Stations.
The bad news is that I don't know anything about what I'm doing when it comes to music promotion, broadcasting, etc. I just happen to be passionate about good Christian music, detail oriented, and looking for an opportunity to try something interesting. Please let me know what you think!
