210 Local Media Magazine – Issue 3 Vol 1

Yay, it’s an Editorial! – Issue 3 Vol 1

I started the 210 Local Media Podcast
after purchasing my first iPhone back in 2013, and discovering the Stuff You Should Know Podcast, Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast, and several podcasts about podcasting. I noticed that each show either had information to share, or a special type of bond with peaople that they shared, and that the form, really was like no other. I quickly became inspired to mix my love of local music, with the newfound awesomeness of podcasting. At the time, there were only a couple of San Antonio Podcasts; The Unavoidable Drudge, and The BoozedCast (both have podfaded for now). Admittedly, my first few episodes were plagued with sound issues, crazy podcasting scheduling, and finding people that were available and wanting to be interviewed.

Since then, we’ve been able to play mixed tape episodes, interviews, and entire albums on the podcast, put on two benefit shows, and helped to raise over $12,000 for a friend with cancer (In remission!). Since then, more local podcasts are popping up everywhere; The Owlcast, She’s Crafty, It’s a Guy Thing Podcast, Geek Culture, Vinyl Pizza, and Texas Music Spotlight, to name a few. So, here we are, and I’m taking advantage of being the guy that says what each issue can/should have. Check out the spread on the local podcasts, and the Alamo City Podcast Network we created to help each other out and gain a much larger footpring in the process.

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
