Episode 128: Dan Mumford

Our guest, Dan Mumford, spent a decade at RADIO 1 in the UK starting at age 25.

Of course we talk tech…

Episode 110: Daniel Testa

My first Maltese guest, Dan Testa, is one of, if not the youngest guests on the show to date. I actually had no idea he was this young BECAUSE of how advanced his skill-set is. I believe when you hear his work and hear him talk about radio it will obvious why I had to…

New Sound Design Service: Race to the Bottom

I’ve been speaking (utilizing back channels) with the secretive, underground force behind Race to the Bottom Radio.  With seemingly hundreds of “for barter” services popping up every week its rare we see a new cash based updating imaging service.  Thats not to say most barter services will put a cash amount on their product…but they ain’t gonna…
