I’ve been using this weblog to push music I like since the beginning, and recently I’ve actually seen some evidence that it is working. I know that Josh Jacob became a fan of the Siderunners after I played them in the audioblog. Right on! He’s in Illinois, so maybe they’ll tour to where he is and he can see them and give them money. This also answers a question about whether my audioblogs “play in Peoria.”
I’m making a leap here, and assuming that my advocacy of the Gentle Readers (the band of my theme) has rubbed off on Mathew Bischoff, who have them as his song of the day. I don’t know explicitly that he found out about them from here, but I’m in his blogroll. It would be fantastic if he found them not from here, because that means other people are pushing them or they are getting noticed. I truly love this band. Thanks, Matthew, for giving them a little blog love.
