Please Help My Man

I don't know how many folks look at this, but I will give it a shot for the Dear Partner's self esteem. He does a really FINE podcast series featuring live music from some very itneresting Austin artists, along with interviews that I have really been enjoying. I have a link to it in the sidebar, but you can also find it here.

The Partner would like to be able to include bands with more than a couple of people in them, but needs more equipment, and a software upgrade. He'd also really like to take his show on the road and do off-site recording, but all that takes big bucks, and singer songwriter types in Austin don't rake in the dough.

It took me forever to convince him to have a fund drive. Now he is ALL bummed that it hasn't exactly taken off. Well, there are only 30 people on the email list--most subscribe via RSS feeds, and he will not do a fund drive podcast, as he says that would irritate people and turn them off. So, I am asking y'all if you feel like it, to support his actually very good efforts with a couple of bucks, or, to encourage anyone you know who enjoys acoustic Americana stuff to visit the site and maybe make a small contribution. It would help our household, and help build up the self esteem of someone who is really trying hard to find a place in the world where he can thrive and contribute.

So, if you know of any music lovers, please share the URL and I will be forever beholden to you. Really, I will. Like, I'd return the favor somehow.

Back to me, me, me shortly.

Well, in case you were wondering, he got 4 contributions in total. I bought him the digital recorder for his birthday. I am the major funder of the Austin Connection.
