As the holidays become histories, a new year turns and yet another birthday approaches, my priories shift as new projects and ideas dominate my thought process. When I began ODW this past May, the goal was to capture a new genre of music I had discovered (surf pop/dream pop) and share the best of it (in my opinion) with anyone else interested in the same. And while I discovered some amazing songs by several great bands, the reality is that my musical tastes so frequently extend beyond the bounds of just a genre or two that I found myself handcuffed and needed to WORK to seek out something just for ODW, and that became a chore when I would rather be listening to something else entirely.

Further, as the 10 year anniversary of Joe Strummer’s death approaches I’ve found myself studying his own BBC radio program (London Calling) and discovering excitement within the more global perspective that Joe’s weekly mixes provided. A big part of my new music obsession wonders; What Would Joe Be Listening To Now? Almost simultaneously with the renewed interest in Joe’s radio show, and his one-off video show with Dick Rude, Global Boom Box , my favorite music discovery site, BandCamp.com, gets even more social and adds me to their beta test group. I discovered powerful new social features that allow even GREATER exploration of musical genres by new, purely do-it-yourself (DIY) artists that Joe, and the organization that followed his death, Strummerville, work so diligently to support and promote.

My new project path is clear. Taking inspiration from Joe’s ‘London Calling’ program, starting next week I will be creating a weekly, 28 minute radio show (and podcast) exploring a vast variety of great music from various points around the globe, while also stepping back in time occasionally to feature artists that provided the fundamental musical architecture we continue to enjoy today. Special attention will be dedicated to today’s true DIY musicians utilizing BandCamp, SoundCloud and other affordable web tools that reduce the barriers and costs between artists and fans. Having recently read David Byrne’s book, ‘How Music Works’, I was stunned to see how little artists actually earn -even once formerly “big” stars as David was while leading the Talking Heads.

This chasm between artists that create and release the vital music that improve the quality of our lives and their ability to pay the simplest of life’s expenses like rent, utilities, a child’s education and health insurance, has caused me to repeat a phrase from a well known Quentin Tarantino film; “Cough Up a Buck, You Cheap Bastard”. It is clear that the majority of self-proclaimed “music fans” feel very comfortable in taking the music they want without regard for payment or compensation to the artists or the countless others involved in the music making process. And that’s why I find something like the “Name Your Price” model that BandCamp.com makes so easy and convenient for artist and fan alike, so very intriguing as a potential to shift the economics for musicians today.

And so, while my vision for a weekly radio show is clear and I stand prepared to record my first episode live next Sunday (the 10 year anniversary of Joe Strummer’s passing), what I struggle with today is a name. While it’s easy to wear my Joe Strummer influences on my sleeve and call this weekly radio program “Strummer’s Boombox”, I also like the more abrasive and confrontational “Cough Up a Buck, You Cheap Bastard”. The second name might not prove to be beneficial for expanding into the public radio spectrum, but I have fewer concerns about that than I do about choosing a name that listeners would identify with and will allow for growth into additional media channels (like TV & videos). Please share your preference for a name below, as I already own domain names for both and started to create some Twitter accounts too.

Thanks in advance for your opinion and listening support going forward!
