Episode 80: #LMW2016 Musician’s Roundtable

Episode 80: #LMW2016 Musician's Roundtable

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. This is how we wanted to kick off Local Music Week; at 502 Bar, doing our first live podcast! Our speakers for the event were Daniel Magallanez (Blackbird Sing), Patric Farrell (Built For The Future), and Edward Welsh (Rumors) and our sound guy for the show was Joey Devine from 502 Bar. The point of the show was to start a discussion, shed some light on local music, and get some attention for local music. We discussed each individuals trials, tribulations, and celebrations they’ve had as local musicians, what some of their experiences have been, and what they think about the situation. We talk about cover prices, the cost of being a musician, venue location, venue sound, the concert goers, and the talent of the band.

We also took some time to acknowledge the organizations in San Antonio that are available to local musicians; The Local 782, M.U.S.I.C. Project, San Antonio Local Music Guild, San Antonio Sound Garden, and others who help like Do210, The Owlcast, Vinyl Pizza, Texas Music Spotlight, and 210 Local Media. This is just the first of a series of discussions we plan on having as we work towards our mission of helping the local music scene thrive. We hope you join us on this voyage and invite you to also check out the resulting videos on our YouTube channel, at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC37uudJJ3iTcEnXISjXKSbA

I could go on for a very long time about this topic, so if you liked it, please let us know on our Facebook page /210LocalMedia or on Twitter  @210LocalMedia. As always, thanks for listening!

Episode 71: Mario’s TOP 100 (75-51)

Episode 71: Mario’s TOP 100 (75-51)

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. We’re continuing with the next group of 210 Local Media’s Top 100 songs. More appropriately, they’re my top 100 picks and they’re grouped in 4 sets of 25, and in each episode, they’ll be presented in alphabetical order. 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.

Episode 66: Built For The Future – Interview

Episode 66: Built For The Future – Interview

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media Podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. First of all, go back and check out Episode 62: Built For The Future RADIO. I’m excited to bring a new genre into the podcast this week; ProgRock! If you’re not savvy, or a millennial, Prog can be exemplified in bands like Yes, Tears For Fears, Genesis, and Muse. Yeah, Muse. Some people characterize it as non-mainstream, super long songs, and experimental in design. By that definition, you can also add bands like Coheed and Cambria, The Mars Volta, and Tool, which many do. Basically, take everything you knew about Prog, or in most cases, didn’t know, and just throw it out the window. As far as myself, and many other do, call it Alternative Rock, even if just for the sake of giving it a listen. It’s largely popular overseas and popularized by the British, but essentially, it’s just music by people who are not Pop.

In this episode, we bring you Built For The Future’s Patric Farrell who discusses his musical history, the journey of making this album, and finally making music with this partner in crime, Kenny Bisset. I also get to ask Patric about BFTF, having done something that local musicians have always wanted to do, in getting their music out to the world. In an extremely brief period of time, they’ve sold out of their initial release and have shipped the album all over the world. You can find them in a Facebook group page, called Built For The Future. With only 298 members, this tight knit group has devoured everything the San Antonio ‘Progsters’ have uploaded. We also discussed the fact that it took a couple of decades for them to accomplish what they couldn’t in their youth and have succeeded in doing what many would consider to be a backwards method. Huge thanks to Patric for letting me interview him and for signing my copy of Built For The Future. Again, go back to Episode 62 and take another listen.

I know the guys will be sharing this on their group page, so; Hello to our overseas friends and new listeners to the podcast. I hope it’s to your liking, and I hope you check out some of the other amazing music San Antonio has to offer. Thanks for listening.

Episode 62: Built For The Future RADIO

Episode 62: Built For The Future RADIO

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media Podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. Before we dive into some amazing music, I wanted to mention something going down in San Antonio tomorrow night at the Alamo Draft House at 618 NW Loop 410. MUSIC Project is screening the documentary, “Alive Inside”, an uplifting cinematic exploration of music and the mind. Tickets are $5 and are available through Eventbright (http://www.eventbrite.com/e/alive-inside-screening-and-silent-auction-for-alzheimers-association-music-project-tickets-17853797188). There will also be a silent auction before the movie, which will be available for filmgoers and the lazy stay at home people as well. This is a great local organization that’s trying hard to make a difference in people’s lives and they are just about halfway sold out. Do me a favor and make sure they sell out, and be sure to check out the great items at auction.

If you’re too young to know what ProgRock is, no biggie, we’ll just call this and alternative version of alternative rock. However, for those of you that are in the know, this show is especially for you. Patric Farrell and Kenny Bissett have recently released their full length album Chasing The Light to critical success globally. They’ve gotten the attention of the global Prog community and have taken it by storm. Locally though, we’re proud to bring you Built For The Future before anyone else. If you like what you hear, do me a favor and use social media to let local San Antonio college radio station KRTU know that you’d love to hear these guys on their show. In the meantime, keep your eyes and ears on the podcast for an interview coming soon. In the meantime, here’s Built For The Future with their album, Chasing The Light.

Recently we’ve been praised by local musicians and fans for playing a good mixture of local music. We really appreciate the feedback, and are hoping to expand our catalog of local music genres. With that being said, we also really need help. Right now, our iTunes data needs a lot more ratings and reviews. A goal we have for this show is to get into iTunes “New & Noteworthy” section and get even more listeners to the show. This means more San Antonio music being spread to the world and the chance that these listeners will visit Facebook pages, BandCamp sites, ReverbNation pages, etc. This could mean digital downloads, physical album sales, and merch sales. If you’ve got the chance to impact that for yourself, shouldn’t you? In the words of Jerry Maguire, “Help Me, Help You”. Thanks for listening!
