Deep Ellum On Air – Real Local Music
Playdough, Parallel Play, Blunt Force Crew, Elle, GOAT, Deborah Driscoll, Erin Gayden, The Texas Red Legs, The Zachary Scott Pohl Band. What do all of these phenomenal local musicians have in common? They can all be heard right now at Deep Ellum On Air.
Deep Ellum On Air is the first source we’ve come across that wanted to play all local music, all the time. Obviously we didn’t hesitate when asked to come do an ArtLoveMagic Radio show, or when they asked our Music Director to give them all the local music we had access to.
So while you’re sitting there Facebooking, working, or reading this blog, you can simply click one of the links to Deep Ellum On Air and enjoy your favorite local tunes. You don’t have to wait for a song you dig, either. Deep Ellum On Air has a simple playlist on their home page with the Artists’ names and tracks listed, and all you have to do to hear that track is click on it. Pretty sweet.
The guys at Deep Ellum On Air have been very good to us and all our musicians. They’re really great people who, like ArtLoveMagic, just want to help brighten the spotlight on Deep Ellum with more examples of fresh, local talent. They finance the whole station out of their own pockets for the good of this city and its music. Since we first came by, the guys have done major work to the space like adding more HD cameras, making the area more comfortable for guest hosts, and adding more microphones and headsets.
The last time we visited the station we asked what their next improvement goal was. “To upgrade to UStream Pro”, they replied. That would mean those silly ads and blurry videos would be a thing of the past, and all the people who enjoy the station would have a lot more fun listening. To get there, all they need to raise is $200. They just added a brand spankin’ new “Donate” button at the bottom of their homepage. $200 isn’t an insurmountable goal, and we think our collective could really help out. Anything you can spare to help these guys out would be appreciated.
Whether you can donate or not, Deep Ellum On Air is free, all-local and all for you. Enjoy it. Love it. Check out our next ArtLoveMagic Radio show in February! More details to come.
