This City is a Dag-nab Pack of Angels

Get used to it.

Hello from Los Angeles!

We are kicking up a fuss in Hollywood for Season Two of the podcast this week.  We’re in town for NAMM, getting the skinny on all the gadgets you sexy music nerds and savvy broadcasters need.  Our guests are  out of control, running the foolish gamut of producers, comedians, broadcast legends, and an alarming roster of musicians.  It’s Comic-Con for the road dogs and session cats, and I’ll be smack dab in the middle.  You will be overwhelmed by the deluge of madness ahead, musical and otherwise.

Stay tuned!

It’s a Very Merry Crisman Show, Indeed

Ever wander right into a music video?

We are so proud to bring you the dopest podcast episode yet, with more guests and new music.  This show is sick and hot all at the same time.  Sarah gets her interview on with renowned producer/performer Deonis, the incomparable artist Chelsea West, and panels stylist Mattie Michelle and urban legend, Keite Young.   Hear music from Pumah, Chelsea West, Snarky Puppy, and BRAND NEW Deonis.  That’s not all, folks!  We are honored to premier the Black and Blue’s first single LoveCrazy.

Now let’s get to the meaty part of this message: Premier Variety Showcase Presents: X-Mas Subscribonation, the Enfoodening of the Masses is on for 5 more days.  We’ll donate $1 to the North Texas Food Bank for every new podcast subscriber between now and Christmas; so please tell ALL your friends to click subscribe.

As you can see by the shape of my head, there has been much a brewing here in Crisman land.  First, I realized I have owned for years, so if you type said URL into your browser, you’ll find yourself right here!  Someday I’ll have Modern Whole build me an online wonderland.  Wordpress will do in the meantime.

Big ups to my personal hair guru, Mattie Michelle (at Michelle Patrick Salon, Dallas) for being a Finalist in the Davines Worldwide Hair Tour.  She and I will be appearing at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami next January.  My job is to sit still while Mattie does my hair; but if a microphone comes anywhere near my face — POW!  Right in the Kisser — I’m telling a joke.

Speaking of microphones near my face:  If you are in the Dallas area September 16, please help me welcome the Carolina Chocolate Drops to the Granada Theater.  You got a taste for something less fancy than folk music?  I’ll be telling jokes next to a parking meter in Deep Ellum at Noon (Stage Four) as part of PARK(ing) Day Dallas 2011.  Something entertaining is bound to happen.

While we get all our ducks in a row, please to enjoy the podcast manifestation of the Crisman Show.
