I assure I'm not getting rich

I just want to let all the musicians who let use their work for free that I am not trying to make any money off their hard work.

This website and podcast is still a money LOSING enterprise!

But I am trying to get some extra money to use for promoting this website.

It does no good for me to scream and yell about how great Iowa music is if I'm talking to an almost empty room!

I want everybody to know how great our - and your - music is. To do, I need to promote this website more. And to do that, I need money.

So I will be monetizing my YouTube page, starting a Patreon account, among other things. But I assure that any money I make will go back into the website and not into my pockets!

Kill a few moments, that you can't get back, on a worthless internet quiz!

You can check out the website and podcasts at

Hope to hear from you soon! And please share with anyone who might be interested!

Some boring legal stuff you should know: Iowa Music Showcase is done on a zero budget. I don't make any money from it, and give it away for free. So I can't afford to pay any rights or fees.

Some episodes, though, are played on Code Zero Radio, and they do pay licensing fees for the songs they play.

Doing a slow down

Well, my few regulars will have noticed that not as many podcasts are coming out as quickly as before.

This is due to my day job. I'm putting a lot of extra hours. Sometimes 50+ a week.

And being an unfit, middle age family man. I can only do so much. So podcast is getting the raw end of the deal.

I'll try to put out at least one a month while this is going on. And continue to put out one of my Other Sources or a playlist or something on weeks without a podcast.

I'm not giving up and stopping. Just doing a temporary and necessary slowdown. When my work hours return to normal, the podcast will come out biweekly again.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

Apology for taking so long with part 2 of the Peace, Love, and Stuff retrospective

I promise you. I have been working on it, but 50-plus hour work weeks mixed, with a busy family life, has left me with little time to work on my podcast.

But part 2 of the Peace, Love, and Stuff retrospective is recorded. I just haven't had time to work on the blogs for the songs and extras.

But if you want a sneak peak you can have a listen here on  here on SoundCloud - - or here on YouTube -
