BlogTalkRadio Draws Authors

Publishers Weekly covers BlogTalkRadio’s draw for publishers and authors in an article by Calvin Reid posted last week.

pw.jpgWe’ve talked about BlogTalkRadio and our Digital Podium in the past. In fact, we mentioned it not once, but twice.

Calvin Reid wrote a detailed article about BlogTalkRadio entitled “Blog Radio Site Draws Authors” that sums up how publishers and authors can use BlogTalkRadio to their advantage:

Levy was quick to note the importance of books on BTR, which offers a daily update of featured authors either hosting their own shows or being interviewed on the network…

BTR offers opportunities to promote authors,” Levy said. “Writers can do an online tour right from their own homes and publishers can create their own branded shows.” Levy is in discussions with traditional book publishers to use the service and has already signed several online publishers like BlogCritics.org, an online journal on pop culture that is syndicated to national newspaper sites, including the Boston Globe. BlogCritics publisher Eric Olsen said that after using the service for a month, “we’re extremely happy with BTR. It’s super easy to use.”

…Levy said BTR is “perfect for publishers looking to connect with their audience. Our hosts can engage people from around the world.”

BC Radio Welcomes Music Producer Marty Thau

Marty Thau, American rock ‘n’ roll entrepreneur and music producer, joins Blog Critics Radio tonight at 9pm ET to talk about his upcoming memoir, “The Red Star Chronicles.”

thau.jpgJoin hosts Phillip Winn and Eric Olsen LIVE tonight at 9pm ET on BC Radio. Thau is best known as the founder of Red Star Records in 1977, arguably America’s first post ‘60s indie punk/new wave label. He’s also known for being the manager of the New York Dolls and co-producer of Suicide’s classic self-titled album.

After the Dolls disbanded in 1975 Thau entered New York’s underground demimonde and was integral to the scene’s development as a spawning ground of punk-new wave stars. He is acknowledged as such in the Encyclopedia of Record Producers, a Billboard Magazine reference book that lists the 500 most important record producers in music history and behind the scenes heroes of popular music.

In addition to the Dolls, he worked with the Ramones, Blondie, Brian Setzer and Richard Hell & The Voidoids,
and produced Suicide, the Real Kids, the Fleshtones, Martin Rev and Walter Steding for his Red Star Records label.
