Show #182: James Kramer

Our busiest year ever continues.  I believe I am now in record territory for most podcasts I've put out in a year. (Actually, it shatters it when you consider I now regularly put out three different podcasts and have guested on two others so far this year).  This episode marks the first of four episodes recorded back-to-back, which seems to be the rythm we're in right now on alternate Saturdays.  It's also the main reason you're seeing a lot of carry-over guests hosts and in-jokes from previous episodes and is a strong argument for why you need to download each and every show.  Basically these are a lot of fun to do, but as anyone who has waited patiently for their show to get out on the feed will tell you, editing and mastering is a pain with volume levelling, time crunching, writing endless introductory posts (like this one), and meticulously researching show notes now several times a week.

Kicking of this block of shows is James Kramer, a musical chameleon who over a long career has been seen to play jam band, bluegrass, rock, blues, country, and singer/songwriter.  For this episode, he treats us to a couple of live in-studio performances, a classic cut, and previously unheard cut from his upcoming album.  Those four tracks alone show the range of his influences and abilities, but at the same time you can't help but feel there must be a lot more lurking under that mischevious grin of his.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
