Episode 37 – Chris “Peapod” Daher/On The Radar Podcast

Joining me for episode 37 from darkest Toledo Ohio, is Chris “Peapod” Daher, a radio personality for 100.7 The Zone, who has a killer podcast called “On The Radar” that promotes musical acts coming through to and from the greater Midwest area. Our discussion meanders through his passion for music that pushes him to find out each musician’s story much like my own, his journey from being bullied in school to becoming a well known radio host, and the responsibilities and pitfalls of having a platform to address social concerns whether that be radio, a podcast, or a band’s fanbase. This episode is not only a great insight into the workings of a popular music podcast, but also a fantastic exploration of personal growth. Check out Chris’s music choice from local Toledo area band “Castle No Kings” with their track, “Thinning Veil”.

Music On Your Own Terms Episode 36 – Anna Wagenhauser/Chloe & The Steel Strings

Recently I connected with Anna on Instagram, but realized later that I had not only heard an interview with her, but actually referenced her opinion on social media in previous episodes of the podcast! During this chat, we dig into the history of the band she both manages, and performs in with her twin sister and the namesake of the group Chloe; what led them to follow music as a career; and her daytime job in creative marketing, where she learns about tools and strategies that then can be applied to the music business. We talk about the group’s dynamic including living in the same house, crowd funding to buy a touring van, and also the importance of philanthropy and community awareness. Anna has a lot of great tips on how to market your band, and as a younger musician and business woman, has some incredible insight into the current trends of gaining an audience both at the gig and on social media.
