Hello there, I have been producing The Mad Music Asylum, a weekly radio show and a 24 hour non- commercial streaming station since June of 2014. The expense of the station has been my "hobby" since that time. In March of this year, I decided to produce a weekly podcast with the hope eventually to attract sponsors to the show and start to make a little income, in part to offset some of the expenses of the station and the podcast.

I have a strong belief that there are many others like me who like the music we grew up with in the 60's 70's 80's and 90's and now with the internet a plethora of new artists are desperately trying to get their music heard by a greater number of people. Finding new music from unsigned bands takes time and effort but too many of us don't have that luxury these days. That's where I can help. Follow me on twitter or facebook (@madmusicasylum) subscribe to the podcast and I will turn you on to some new music each and every week. I have been featuring unknown acts on the show every week since it began and to date, I have featured over 600 indie bands and some of them, scratch that, most of them are truly remarkable. It gives me great pleasure to expose people to new music and is one of the privileges of my life to be able to do it.

In all honesty, I am a little squeamish about asking for support but there comes a time when a little monetary compensation for all the work I have done to expose new artists is not too much to expect. If and when I start to get sponsors for the podcast, I will probably shut down this campaign. Until then, I would appreciate your support.
