With the launch of, comes the launch of a brand new internet radio show, SMI Radio. SMI is about covering the local music scene 360. Along with weekly articles at, SMI Radio will feature 1-2 broadcasts per week. The shows will feature local music news, concert calendars, original local music and the artists that create that music. SFI Radio will take you up close and personal as well as provided commentary on the state of music radio, and the music industry as a whole.

The first installment of SMI Radio from Our first broadcast highlights my appearance that I made on terrestrial radio back in January on KKNW’s “The Menage” a very funny and provocative music and talk radio show, hosted by Jennifer Austin and Julie Mains.

On the show we chatted about George Clinton and P-Funk’s appearance in Seattle. In addition, we discussed the legislative process involved with the Music Matters custom license plate, which the Lt. Governor of Washington State has offered his official endorsement. The show features music from Seattle’s own Priceless Productions and “Eldridge Gravy and the Court Supreme” who will be featured on upcoming episodes of SMI Radio.

I invite you to take a listen to this week’s show and subscribe for upcoming episodes regularly.
