Almost every day I throw out highlights and news hoping to turn you on to some great BlogTalkRadio shows and hosts. Today I’d like to do something different.

Did you know many members of the BlogTalkRadio team are talk show hosts in their own right? Each has a talent and a passion and they enjoy sharing that passion with others. If you don’t mind, today I’d like to give a shout out to the people who keep this place going.

    Thanks BlogTalkRadio,
    You guy’s have changed my life in ways that can only be described as a miracle. I am a 50 year old Disabled African American Single father of 2 teen boy’s. In 1998 i had brain surgery and was not expected to live, Or at least be a vegetable.
    I tried for years to go back to work and get off disability to no avail. Then all of a sudden i was on the radio. Please listen to my show “Check the Rhyme” and also MissDiamond and Tony2Tru Real talk. I am building a powerful network for unsigned and independent artist. I understand the difficulties for an artist to get radio air play. Traditional air play in particular. So my goal is to network these artist through BlogTalkRadio.
    I’m in a unique position because of my affiliations with certain people in the music industry like, The famous Gap Band. I am currently Playing music on my show by the R&B artist Andre Wilson. He’s the nephew of Charley Wilson, Lead singer of the Gap Band.
    We’re promoting concerts, and a whole lot more. Our first concert is May 23rd. A live on air performance on “check the rhymes” wish me luck, and i promise Blog Talk Radio is all over this.

    ya boy
    Tony 2Tru
