DADS ROCK 2 feat. CAVO (new song) Its June, Its FATHER'S DAY month and DADS love rock in all its forms plus DADS just plain rock at life (most of us In this episode you will hear from major rock band CAVO (former WB), BELOW 7 (Sony), MARQUIS of VAUDEVILLE (Dexter and Charmed) JR RICHARDS (former lead hit song Counting Blue Cars--DISHWALLA) plus Baltimore's #1 rock band CRASHING ATLAS (new Evanessence type band) also many other great bands!HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!!Time for a story bio......... (I usually make these story bios off the cuff..lets see if I can work some magic Dads and as all people in general we sometimes find ourselves battling our own demons to be set free. Sometimes those battles can be lengthy and hard fought nights of depression and decay to the body spent enduring "100 Weeks in the Dark". In order to find your way to the light you may have to thrown down some "Kerosene" to fire up your path forward to a new life and possibly a new found love and support with feelings of bliss as you tread forward to that lovely emotional state of "Bliss Chemical". Be careful to not allow the negativity back in your life. As soon as things get better the "Wolves" come to tear apart everything that you love. Our younger "Millennial" friends, cousins, brothers and sisters,  have had a tougher time at life than we Xers have in some respects but hats off to them for managing to survive this cold yet web connected world. They still remember a time when we didn't type out our hand written "Letters to Penelope". We never know what the future may hold. "Where We're Standing Now" may not necessarily be the place you're supposed to be. You may have to get "a Little High and a Little Low" before you find where to plant your roots as have I and many of us have from all walks of life. Many of us have found a "White Light" at the end of the tunnel in love and relationships whether it be lovers, friends, or family but sometimes those lights come in the form of powder burns when their words sting like "Bullets". It may make you feel like you are not being validated and going "Unnoticed" for your contribution. Take a second to think about how you respond or what your next move is. The world can be a huge scary place when facing it alone with your "Lonely Bones".This world is demanding, life is demanding, jobs are demanding, it can feel like its a bit too much and leaving us looking for some "Sanity in Madness" that is the state of today. In the end, life is what you make it. Go out there and conquer the world as I have so you can say look at "What I've Become" rather than "Falling" on your face so you will "Never Look Back" to your old life of negative mind state and hard times. This is a new world folks! I don't know what it means for us Xers and how we fit in but lets hear some great music and great bands while we bring you some "New Blood" to conquer the music industry!Thanks for tuning in and rocking out! Find our show on all major music services including IHEART radio, ITUNES, APPLE podcasts, DEEZER, AMAZON MUSIC and many more!Thanks for becoming a fan! 400 cities and 100 countries just love what we do over the course of the last 8 years!!

The elements can be nasty this time of year!!
If most of you don't already know Im Generation X! We are the smallest Generation in the world in existence but yet we had the largest impact on culture from music to tv and movies to the very smartphone you hold in your hand! My generational brothers and sisters are lost in this new world. We imagined a world where we could strive forward and make the necessary changes that our parents and grand parents neglected to see or admit. We were told to sit down and shut up and eat our brussel Kids have no say!! Therefore we are lost (most of us not all), the forgotten ones, left to fend for ourselves to try to grow a career out of a life of disappointment and most of the time utter chaos. We found solitude in each other and our music for it was all we had! We were the kids daring enough to do bike stunts in the backyard and play "war" around the neighborhood till the lights came on! We were partying in the woods and having bonfires before it was even cool and we were the first to play video games at home and all you had to do find where all your friends were was look for the most bikes in the front yard! Those were the days! Now our generation is left to pick up the pieces of our aging parents, crushing debt, and Gen Z children who want a better life than what most of us can give or offer. We were branded the first and most "color blind" generation. We want nothing but peace and love for all humanity and coexistence was our forte. We were groomed by our parents to get the great job and the white picket fence with 2.7 kids and a pension to fall back on but sadly the world that was created by them has been destroyed by them as well and we as always are overlooked for our opinions and knowledge and experience. It seems that the current social climate culture is trying to suppress every thing we knew as kids from our music to movies. The major labels used to "care" about you the listener, now all they care about is the mighty dollar and "streamagers" They are the ones who have time to pass around garbage and call it music because once you've heard GREAT, you cant go back or be subjected to tolerating less than talent. Its like trading down for a crappier car than the one you have. Why would you???...lolSo why tolerate the BS they are handing out and why keep listening to 30 year old music you've heard 5000 times!! (yes its great and you LOVE it) but there's always room to LOVE something else too!Apparently we Gen Xers who created music what it is today doesn't have time to make sure we influence music in the right direction. A "LIKE" does nothing for a band on social media but hitting the "SHARE" button is the ultimate goal. That's what gets the message out to social media feeds around the globe!!We have to stop and ask ourselves "Are we part of the problem that music has headed the way it has" That's a resounding YES because no one wants to lift a finger to retweet or share their fave indie band or a new act they found to their buddies (Some of you will, but most wont) and that's very unfortunate that the GEN that calls themselves the most critical thinking most problem solving most active GEN in history cant "hit a button". ...lolWe can all do better!! So next time hit the share button for a band you like or my show. They cant do it on their own and neither can we. This is going to take a grassroots movement from all of us. Its how my show and reputation have gotten to where it is today because of good people like you and great fans all over the world in 100 countries!!Find my show on all major music services (Itunes, Iheart Radio, Amazon Music, Deezer etc..) across the globe (except for Spotify) Check out my website!!

Reverb Campaign #3 is here and we all agree that you cant go wrong with these rappers of this degree! Skills is the game we play and song writing is how we plan to stay! Sticky...sticky..sticky goodness is what we're all about here at the "shack"! Radio used to mean catchy, radio used to mean solid hooks and tracks you can sing along or rap too because you can understand the lyrics and its written in a way that makes sense to your mind that anyone can relate. Its the reason "hit songs" became hit songs. Those songs back in the day spoke to a wide range of people from all walks of life from all backgrounds to all races. That's what good mainstream hits do. They bridge the gap and bring people together under one common love and that's the love of music. If your song has the ability to grab multiple generations attention from multiple cultures across the world then you're on to something BIG!Halshack dives deep into the indie market to pull out and showcase what could be "hits" in their respective rights to their genres or styles. These rappers and creators are out here working their butts off grinding daily through life and work to try to spark some life back into the rap scene we all used to know and love and cherish! Gen X owns all popular music types. We expanded what was a bland market of soft rock disco and pop and turned the world on its head with stars like Dre, Snoop Dog, Madonna, Metallica and Guns and Roses etc..... There is no one better at music and its time to recapture that magic before all hope is lost to the major labels and their agenda to "dumb down" the industry! Well we're not having it here on the Halshack! In the words of the great TWISTED SISTER "NO! We're not gonna take it anymoroorrreeee"...lolBe sure to catch MIGS718 "live" at SXSW 2022 in Texas March 19!  Im sure it will be a great showcase! Over 500 artists on display! We have one more from the Halshack! Portland rockers "40 Feet Tall" will also be out live in Texas! The show is growing all over the world folks and especially out in Kansas! MIDWEST SALOON is from KANSAS CITY and KC has quickly become one of my top cities in the world out of 400 locations is up on deck with a couple songs to show you their cool classic styles and vibe that only they can create!400 Metro Markets100 Countries110+ episodesGo find everything Halshack at my website! www.Halshack.com24 hour radio us all over the web at Itunes, Iheart, Podomatic, PlayerFM, Amazon Music, Deezer, plus many many many more........
Time to kick up heels (or boots) and get to steppin'!! Country steppin' that The HALSHACK knows country cause I grew up in the country sticks and backwoods of North Carolina. Still live here now and let me tell you not much has changed in the past 50 years. NC has seen alot of growth and advancements in the world of tech and medicine but if you take a ride out of town about 10 to 20 minutes from any metro area, you would think you just stepped through a time machine and you know what?? Thats the way we like it here!!...lolLittle bit of old, little bit of new, little bit of something borrowed or blue!! That is the country way and we are here to show you that way in our music and our traditions. Many of these artists in this show hail from the southeast where the heart and values are as big as the region we call home. There's something to be loved and said about country, folk and bluegrass. Its roots are buried deep in passion, folk lore and story telling. Its probably the last (least tarnished) major genre in the industry that still holds true to its history and foundation. These 11 bands and artists on display are all new and have recently been discovered in the REVERBNATION submission campaign series. It took thousands of artists to find these gems of farm hands and rustic The Hackens Boys are sure to please with triple tracks for your pleasure as well as (newcomer Sarah Buss) has stories to tell about those that are UNINVITED. Highway 31 will tell you all about their "UNLIKE HEROES" located on the "NORTH TEXAS SIDE" and Melissa Lee Zenker fell in love a little too quick in "TOO FAR GONE" just to not listen to a word he's sayin' in "BLAH BLAH BLAH". Too many more potential hits to love! So have fun dustin' off your tires and your heels (or boots)!!...lolBe sure to check it all out at my websitewww.halshack.com24 hour radio us all over the web!! ITUNES, IHEART, DEEZER, AMAZON MUSIC, plus many more!Thanks for fanning the Halshack!! (we feel very cool
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY folks!! A spur of the moment decision or actually a forgetful memory inspired this show to I always do something special for this lovely day because I'm a lovely feelin' Libra who's feelin' lovely and always in love with love. I'm usually "lucky in love" but not lately. I have no significant woman in my life at the moment so I've been living a closed knit life building my show for the last 3 years since I last said "I love you" to anyone in-person that wasn't family...lolLove is a complicated web of thick emotions, happy memories or sometimes traumatic events that has a profound effect on our lives in both positive and negative ways. The healthiest relationships can even see problems but those usually make it ok. Others are not so lucky. We all have our own love stories to tell and can relate to each of these artists stories whether its happy in love or wishing life had been different with a past loved one or just reflecting on oneself and your values as a person, finding in you what it takes for one to be happy and complacent in life.This has been a famously popular series around Halshack lore with 3 under our belt as of press time so this will be the 4th in my long standing iconic series of love shows for the holiday! Go find 14.5 "Love Shack", 19.5 "Music is Love" and 21.5 "Hearts Desire". All are different and all are truly brilliant!Enjoy what could be iconic hits across several genres. A newcomer to the scene (Sarah Olivia Buss) just submitted to me under a brand new campaign from REVERBNATION! Campaign number 3 is under way and she is the first and only artist to be pulled for this round yet. We are pleased to add Sarah to our quality team as I feel she is a special starlet just waiting to happen! She certainly grabbed my attention as well as my label partner associates. Well done Sarah!! More to come in future episodes from this rising talented artist!Ok get busy loving on your partner or (tears for a past love) sorry about that! These songs are too good (I cant help that one or two might make you all my shows and everything Halshack at my websitewww.halshack.com24 hour radio the show on most major music services (Itunes, Iheart, Deezer, Amazon Music, etc.....)See you soon,HAPPY LOVN' HALSHACK

BRAND NEW!! HOT NEW BANDS!All new Reverb campaign #2!!Shacknation vol 5Hear ye! Hear ye! 2022 is here and so is a whole new season 4 of the Halshack! We are blazing a trail through the unknown future of the year with the unknowns of the industry!I'm hoping this year will be better than the last 2 for all as we set course poised in a good position to look forward to a very aggressive year making my way through the music sphere! After all it is the Chinese zodiac "year of the tiger" which are years that are historically known for cunning and aggression through all facets of life from business to personalities. I know a few Tiger people and they are not to be trifled with or (there may be a reason Soylent Green was set in 2022) I think the whole world is feeling the tension and I fear its only going to get worse before we see the light. So lets try to turn those aggressive frustrated thoughts and feelings into a smile of positivity and love with a one hour show of fun upbeat tracks to brighten anyone's mood (at least at the section is a country of cool new hits and throw backs to classic styles from all the years of ramblin' musical roadhouse saloons so be sure to grab yourself a beer. The Hackens Boys have a story for you to sit down and think about over a brew with "I Need a Beer". So its ok if you get a little rowdy while listening to the Halshack.

The band worked behind the scenes personally with miss Nicks for almost 2 years on this song and album that was handed to me as the sole exclusive promoter and podcaster on the planet to have rights to play! Im super super honored!!Cant go into details but the whole project was canned and tanked 1 month before release back in March 2018. The band ultimately went a different direction and signed with an indie label after a series of unfortunate events that I cant divulge because I was involved with this project long before it was ever announced or even known about, still no one really does except for long time fans of my show. Last time this song was played was about 1 year and half ago I believe, so its time to dust the cobwebs off the tune for Halloween and lets have a good ole 80s party with all the gang including BOMBARGO who "recreated" the iconic walk on Abbey Rd in London just to get some "OXYGEN"!
