BlackRadioIsBack.com MySpace 8 - Week 3 - Where Are They Now? Edition
** Note - Due to distractions of life (a.k.a. my trying to have one of some sort in between this, the 9 to 5 and the radio show) and whatnot, I've fallen a bit behind with these BlackRadioIsBack.com MySpace 8 postings...sorry about that. Now, besides the mini-info pieces, we have a listening section with each clip for folks to check out a little bit of what the music artist on display has done. Hopefully you'll dig it, check out their sites, maybe spend some $$$ on some music, etc. and we'll all be happy...yay. **
Since MySpace has pretty much become an important part of music artists promoting themselves (if for no other reason, its free to setup something that looks decent and can play your music to the masses), BlackRadioIsBack.com and the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast has started going a weekly segment where we highlight eight music artists who do we personally feel are on point doing quality Black Music of various genres.
Folks over here are pretty much on MySpace every day checking artists out, but if you feel we're missing you, hit us up at the BlackRadioIsBack.com MySpace Page or at our e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
