Tampa, FL, February 22, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Remember the good old days when DJ's were allowed to play whatever they liked and radio had a charm all its on? Well those days are long gone and radio as we know it is a dying breed. Back in the sixties, seventies and eighties record companies would give a band or artist a chance to develop their sound, but unfortunately that is no longer the case. If you are not a top pop artist it is harder than ever if not impossible to get your music played on the radio. So when a classic rock band that has sold millions of albums around the world has the same problem they look to different avenues to get their music heard. A way that it can be heard by more people then ever in a very short time.
Myles Goodwyn the founder, guitarist and lead vocalist of the legendary rock band 'April Wine' has discovered that as well. “Radio stations are still playing our hits such as Sign of a Gypsy Queen, Just between you and me and Roller, but the new stuff is getting very little if any air play in the states."
That is where podcasting comes in. Two of the top music podcasts on the internet, Podshow Radio and The Rock and Roll Geek show, decided it was time to change things. Podshow Radio, based out of Tampa, Florida and The Rock and Roll Geek Show, based out of San Francisco, California teamed up to do a interview with Myles out of his home in Montreal Canada Via skype technology to discuss the band's 16th studio release entitled 'Roughly Speaking,' which is their first disc since 2001. The album is very different from what you have heard from the band with part blues part Beatle-ish fill to it. The interview will be simulcast on both www.podshowradio.com and www.rockandrollgeek.com starting February 26th 2007. Besides the interview there will be some tracks played off the new CD as well.
