I’m starting to realize that most of my funks come from being stalemate. So I start a project – and this is one that I actually had in mind once I moved somewhere where I could set up a decent microphone, but decided yesterday to try something.
See – for some reason, a lot of people visit this site. I don’t know why, I really don’t, but about 1000+ a day…more when I get into trouble. So that’s a lot of folks.
Visits, I have. Funding for the new show, I don’t (had I brought my debit card down here to the beachside pub, I would have gone ahead and bought the domain name and told you the idea I have for the new music show, but I didn’t, so trust me on this), so I at least wanted to feel out our little community we have here.
Would asking $45 a show for sponsorship be too much? The portable mixer I need to get started while on-the-road runs $450, so if 10 people wanted to advertise whatever it is they do, or any cause they’re trying to get out, then I could get it paid for. This could be your business, your favorite charity, anything really (except religion or wicker – I will never back either). You’d get a link on the page and 3 mentions during the hour-long show.
O.M.K.O.S. was getting about 20,000 listens a month so it could be good. Or not. I don’t know, but was just thinking of a way to start on the show early.
It’s purely selfish, me going in early with this – I admit that. I just need something to do and this was something I’ve been excited about for a few months now. But I’m not going to get my feelings hurt if it doesn’t either.
Is $45 too much?
Does anyone know of a better mixer that runs with XLR mikes?
Or am I an asshole?

I mentioned this in the comments, but I want to here as well – this meant a lot to me; the funding, of course, but also the support that so many have shown.
