Q:  How hard is it to start my own show?

A:  It is very easy. You just decide what topic or topics you want to focus on. Then, decide if you would like to present your topic to your audience using radio or adding in video as well. If you have items you would like people to see, then adding in video is an easy choice. The cost to go video is small; itís all up to you. Once you have your topic, you just schedule when you would like to broadcast your show. We take care of everything else. Once the topic and show time are established, you just show up, sit down in the studio and begin your show.

A:  No way! You can bring in the band and play live music. We have a big new stage performance Professional Mackie mixer and microphone pickups to let you rock-on. Come in and play soft rock, western, country or classical, sorry no heavy metal (the old folks next door complain too much). You can even record a demo for an extra fee.

Q:  Can I play music on my show like a D.J. or an oldies radio station?
