JD Steagall, Gone But Not Forgotten, Ever.

To me it's kind of a freaky thing to have been broadcasting for so long as to even be mentioning this...

5 years ago we said goodbye to a very good friend to the show, JD Steagall. During this week's broadcast we will be stepping away from our usual format and paying our respects. We will feature clips from when we had JD on the show as well as the music he performed with Buster Chopz and JD and the Cherokee Boys.

JD was an absolute riot, you honestly never knew what the man was going to say next. He was always a great guy to interview and have on the show, and a brilliant musician as well.

One of the reasons that this upcoming broadcast is so important to me is that we get to introduce all the new people that have started to hang out with us on justcastlive to JD, and let folks get to know just a little more about him.

Please join us this coming Monday night, the show will start at 9 pm (EDT) and the tribute to JD will begin around 10 pm or so.

JD Steagall Tribute This Monday

Wow, talk about a flashback.

This is our blogtalkradio interview with JD Steagall from way back in 2009. Skip over the first hour we had gotten the time zones messed up and he was kinda late calling in. You can just move the bar in the player at the top of the page.

As it has been 5 years since his passing I will be doing a tribute during this week's broadcast on justcastlive. JD may be gone but certainly not forgotten.

In the meantime, enjoy the flashback! (poor audio quality included at no extra charge)

Blogtalkradio, I don't miss you.

June Update

Usually I post the monthly update a little later in the month but now is a good a time as any....

Since I've was going to dedicate the now postponed MusicFest to JD Steagall who passed away 5 years ago I am now going back to my original plan which is to dedicate one of my June shows to him and his music. I hope you folks will join us, I'm really planning on this one to be an awesome show.

I am starting to work on bringing back live music to the broadcast, let's see how that goes.

Other than that, nothing new to report for the month of June, other than please like our Facebook page and stay tuned!

May Recap and Upcoming Plans for June

I've been having issues during the broadcast with dropped frames and the music skipping, other than that the live broadcasts have been pretty uneventful. It's taking some time but we're starting to develop a following on justcastlive.

Our music playlist has expanded quite a bit over the last couple of months, longtime viewers and listeners that haven't been at the show in a while will find that the music selection is decidedly different than what they might have gotten used to. I know I would love to see some old friends drop in whenever they can.

Now, on to June....

I've cancelled MusicFest for now. I would love to reschedule for a later date but to be honest I have to get the broadcast back up to where I'd like it. I need to get the settings right first before I can even consider an event.

That, and to be honest about it, I've been having issues with my lower back, I really don't think I can sit in this chair for 12+ hours and conduct the broadcast. Right now I'm pretty good with doing the weekly broadcast but even doing the show I have to get up and move around.

So, at this point, here is where we are. The weekly broadcast will obviously continue, and as I fix the broadcast settings I'm going to try to bring live music back to the show via Skype. Once we get that straightened out maybe I'll move forward with planning an event but as it stands right now it's on the back burner until I get the broadcast 5x5.
