Episode 81: Aaron Stephens – Hard Times, Straight Lines RADIO

Episode 81: Aaron Stephens – Hard Times, Straight Lines RADIO

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. I’ve been holding on to this album for a while and finally decided it was time to put this out. With all of the plans I had made for episodes prior to this, I hadn’t gotten to this RADIO episode. So, without further ado, this is Aaron Stephens, a transplant from Illinois and most recently, New Braunfels, our northern neighbor.

Aaron’s really got a soulful record here, so if you’re into listening to music in the dark, with your eyes closed, do it. If you’re in your car, you have an excuse to listen to the episode twice. Let the music take you through your own memories and feel the words. Just a suggestion in this world of hustle and bustle and no time to experience music on the same levels we did when we were kids.

BIO:
Aaron Stephens is a soul singer/songwriter and musician born in Illinois, raised deep down in McAllen, Texas.

Writing songs, singing, and playing guitar since the age of 12, Stephens has an original songwriting and performing style that can both soothe and stir.

Since 2012, Stephens has been playing shows all across Texas.

With his soulful voice, songwriting, and tasteful slide guitar playing, Aaron Stephens and his tight, groove-based band are standing out and gaining some momentum.

On June 18, 2014, Aaron Stephens released his first full-length album entitled “Hard Times Straight Lines”. The 9-song album is a perfect example of Aaron Stephens' music: honest, relatable and soulful.

The album is available on all major online platforms.

Episode 70: Mario’s TOP 100 (100-76)

Episode 70: Mario’s TOP 100 (100-76)

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. I’m doing something I’ve been wanting to do for some time. I’m closing out this year’s podcast season with 4 “radio” versions of the show. These will be 210 Local Media’s Top 100 songs. The qualifications are that they are/were local, played a song I like, and have either sent me music or have made their music available to me. Some bands will be played more than once as we get higher on the “chart”, some bands are totally absent because of the lack of a music release, or because the license to play their music is too expensive. By and large though, we’ve got the bulk of it here. Thanks to all of the musicians that have made this podcast possible, thanks to those who have made getting a hold of music, releases, or promo stuff easy, and thanks to YOU, the listener, for continuing to listen and make me feel that this is a worthwhile venture. I hope to accomplish a lot more in 2016, and I hope you enjoy my top 100 local songs.
