Show #119: Eyes on Fire

Indy In-Tune Radio continues to take off, with audiences tripling on average beginning with the official kickoff party.  Since that time we've added our first two show hosts, the inimitable Mia Kileen with the Rock Show (Thursdays at 8:00 PM) and Anita Vokill with the experimental electronic Return to Space (Friday's at 10:00 PM), and there's still more to come.  On the ratings front, we've been a consistent top-ten Indie-Rock station, solidly on the front page of that Live365.com category, and in the top 15-20% overall.  Now, to put this in TOTAL perspective ... the lowest-rated major radio station in Indianapolis is WXNT-AM with just under a half-share. If we compare that (conservatively) to our "unique streams opened," then they still have about 30 times our audience.  So ... still a hobby this month.

This weeks show marks the second one brought to me by the legendary Levar Johnson from The Music Mob.  This time Eyes on Fire treats us to a sneak peek at their upcoming eponymous release a few months ahead of time.  Comprised of five long time veterans with an impressive resume between them, the band is a solid hitting outfit that commands a loyal following and are staples of Indy's Heavy Metal scene.  If the material featured tonight, and the comments on their latest video are any indication, this phenomenon is not limited to the metro area, either.  Expect big things from them over the next year.

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.
