HAPPY FATHERS DAY DADS!! Congratulations!! If you're reading this then we made it to 2021 and hopefully past all the bullcrap and the nonsense that had us all down the last 2 years!! Well lets "cut the crap" as us Dads like to say and show off only the finest in unknown rock this 3rd time around for another jaunt into my library and my headspace of vast musical knowledge of nuances and rock flair. (See Rock Ages 1 and 2) for more pure rock goodness!! Rock is not meant to be nice nor are its fans forgiving when it comes to skills of the axe laden guitar string. Music is about showing off all your skills and musical weapons one possesses in their arsenal of experience and expertise. I am Generation X. We learned to earn our keep and we perfected what modern music is today. Gen X is the best at music. We don't hand out participation trophies because we know the quality of talent that is out there. Once you've heard that then it makes no sense to settle for second best. It existed once at the top tier for many decades but that seemed to have been replaced with sub- standard expectations today. You want on the Halshack?? You got to earn it! You earn it by creating something that catches my valuable well respected discerning ear! Millions of fans DOES NOT impress me, what you create does even if you only have a 100! I can spot quality years ahead! I hope you enjoy my day of music for DAD to ROCK!! Find everything Halshack at my website 24 hour radio station Show is also on just about every major music platform! Go find all the back episodes. There's only about 80 different episodes to jam!! Even some country and rap!! Thanks for becoming a fan!!
Warning!!!! ADULT CONTENT 18+ Well if you're in the mood for thumpin' down the highway or you just want to thump your bedroom with your love then look no further! I put together this special show off a cue from a new friend who has a very sexually based podcast. It's something I've often thought about doing but waiting to get the right music together for it. So here you go. Have a little fun on the house or in the whatever you do, be sure to make it special!!

MAY the fourth BE WITH YOU!! Official release of the exclusive radio show (Double Trouble). Its Star Wars day and of course my show has something to do with Star Wars (huge and the song titles and it just so happens to be time to release this to the world! "I can't explain my life folks! I just live it" Well, in light of Star Wars Day, its time to shed the sabers light on this very cool show (released last year to radio only!!) full of broken men and echoes of the past when music meant more than background noise! Just like Anakin, I too was a "Broken Man" when I started my journey into the music business many many years ago! That's when the music started to change for the worse at the top tier level. People who know better never forgot the "Echoes" of the past greats of music while this new (bad batch) of songs infiltrated the airwaves. Some thought it was great while others had "Faith" we wouldn't completely "Ghost" the soul of music for all the fancy "Lights" and glory of a new electronic sound while real bands and musicians were left feeling like "Monsters" and outsiders to the music industry. Here we are 9 years later since that fateful day in 2012 when I decided it was time to be the change that we so desired before the industry loses all credibility. I made a point to "Never Give Up" on you the listener just hoping for the day that folks would "Remember Me" when they tune into the radio when looking for music that is NOT being boxed in by "Walls". "No Walls" around music means diversity can grow and be encouraged. Well I hope you enjoy my little story as much as my show! Go find your fave episode now and remember "the force of excellent music will always be with you on my show" You can always stream or download the shows here at PODOMATIC or just about anywhere on the web from ITUNES to IHEART, to DEEZER, to AMAZON MUSIC plus many many more!!

(I can't help I'm the music With the help of the official REVERBNATION SUBMISSION CAMPAIGN for FEB/MAR 2021, I was able to put this all together for this HUGE first ever event! Thanks for all the support! HALSHACK has been granted another rare opportunity to "break out" a star! LIL' FYE is a newcomer singing (awesome) the hook and working out his rap skills that will surely grow over time with support of LIL' ZANE with the LEGION on the beats in an all new remix of MR. TIK TOK! It's sure to be a HIT!!! I'm so proud and honored I get to bring this out on a WORLD PREMIERE!! Every great show has to find room for expansion into unknown territory! It's time to "tread the streets" of the urban market!! I play to win! I didn't come here to lose! Neither did G845 and his crew! (Laughatproblems, C.O.I.N, and Wunda845) This show is meant to take the listener on a journey through rap from modern day and work your way back through the 2000s and the 90s and back to 2000s to modern day jams with some of the finest examples of the art that have ever graced my golden laid ears! Its a 30 year trip through HIP HOP that's NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE!!! I'm proud I get to do this and help bring RAP the proper respect so deserves. Just like my mainstream (rock, alt, pop) show, I try to look for those radio "hits" that are catchy and memorable. Important social and personal messages buried all throughout the lyrics.
