Please "Like" It

It's amazing. With facebook and twitter and all other forms of social networking its almost over-whelming how there's a consistent cry from the masses about wanting something different from radio.

I've received literally hundreds of e-mails and messages over the past two or three years from people who are looking for something more scoped and designed to their specific tastes.

Well listen here, the product can be created but "you" need to support it. We now have the simple technology and delivery systems to make it work from the production side but people need to commit on the receiving side.

Spread the word; faithfully download to create some viable numbers for advertising. In the case of Humble and Fred Radio, the service will be free, but you'll also have the choice to support it financially.

How would you like to buy a Humble and Fred share? An actual certificate delivered to your computer that gives you special privileges. Like weekends at my trailer or golf lessons from Humble.

Essentially, put your ears, and money if you wish, where your mouth is.

These are the things "you" are going to have to do if you really want something different in Toronto and Canada.

First a radio show, and then maybe a radio station - a station that doesn't need millions of listeners to be viable. Only a few thousand (several thousand actually) - but we guarantee, it will be a kick-ass radio station that will never ever have a serious "Hollywood entertainment report."

Instead, we'll mock the shit out of it all - with absolutely no restrictions - hear that, no restrictions!

And we promise not to make you sit through a bunch of songs you don't like, just to hear a song you do like. You can program your own music, I'm sure you already are, Humble and Fred Radio will look after the talk side.

Delivery systems are changing at a meteoric pace and we're on the verge of being able to receive on-line content anywhere, any time. Soon car radios will have the ability to stream and you'll be able to listen to exactly what you want when you want.

It's all pretty exciting, and all very doable. But we must work together. Humble and Fred Radio doesn't have a big radio conglomerate behind it, so we've got to do it the new way, the fun way, the viral way.

Now, without sounding any more like a politician lets me leave you with this. Like any venture a business plan must be developed, a financial forecast must be considered and proper execution is a must and that's what we're doing right now. If this is going to be done, it's got to be done right.

I would ask that on your own particular facebook and twitter networks that you ask you're your friends to support Humble and Fred Radio.

And this includes any former Humble and Fred or "Spirit of Radio" listeners who have done well over the past two decades and are looking to "support the arts."

Florching is an art.

I mean it, the work starts now. Please spread the word, it's vital in reaching the next step.

Please book mark humbleandfredradio.com and then go to our facebook page and "like" it.

Get goin!.

Thank you, and good day. More details will be released daily.

You had me with florching.

While the progressives may have their small bowels in a twist over possible cuts to their beloved opera or symphany, those of us who pay real taxes could get "behind" this kind of real world, "reach into yer pocket" kind of arts funding.

Florching blow back be damned. Gotta love contact arts! See? Arts didn't have an 'f' in front of it..yet.

Looking forward to it all.

Can't wait to listen to your and Humbles podcast crawl, stand, baby steps, walking then running.

Two of my preferred entertainment podcast are by Adam Carolla and Marc Maron.

Carolla's resembles a very traditional personality driven radio show providing you with 90 minutes of great entertainment with a featured guest. Carolla churns out a podcast Monday to Friday and has a heavy ofnother shownunder his Ace Broadcasting Spade

Maron's podcast peels back the layers of a guest comedian in an in depth interview to get behind the funny. His podcast are twice weekly and on occasion has live specials with an audience featuring many comedians.

My wish is happiness to Humble and Fred to a podcast that features quality above quantity. I know the more they do it the better it will get.

It will be good to not have someone in a $1000 suit making decisions about things he-she know little about. Maybe $1000 is a cheap suit for radio barons.
