OPENS THE SHOW - Mark Radcliffe grew up in a small town in Maine, spent all his time devoted to sports, and didn’t even pick up a guitar until he was 17. And he worked for years as an English teacher & professional writer before ever writing his first song. In a world of teenage American Idol winners, Mark was a late-bloomer. With his debut album, ALL I CAN REMEMBER, which was recorded in two days in small basement studio in Portland, Oregon where he was living at the time, Mark is making his name known. We will spend time with Mark talking about how this whole journey began and where he is looking to take it into the future.
SEGMENT BEGINS AT THE 50:00 MARK - Then we welcome back Phil Putnam, he of our premier broadcast. Phil has his new project in the works and he is taking a new path for him. "Songs About You", is the name of the album and it is named perfectly. Phil is asking for fan involvement from day 1. Fans can make contributions to the production of the album and Phil has put together some interesting rewards if you do so, including a song written especially for you! He is asking for help in selecting the songs which will be on the album. His goal is to have $10,000 in donations in 75 days or everyone gets their money back and the album is put on hold. We'll sit with Phil and find out how it is going with a little more than half the days left. This is the future of the indie music scene as we have heard from other guests doing the same thing. Find out more Monday evening.
