What Are Pub Stories?

I love stories. They are so important to our lives. A good story has the power to change people for the better or the worse. 

My goal is to pull together those stories to make a sometimes fun, sometimes inspiring look into the stories behind the songs. 

Were you inspired by a particular song? Record it. Tell us how the song inspired. What change did it make in your life?

Are you a musician who wrote a song? Tell me the story of how it came to be and what kind of response you've had.

Remember. This is not just for my listeners though. I want you to think of this as your podcast. It's a place where you can share your stories with family, friends, and fans.

"Oh did you hear about my song? I talk all about in Pub Songs & Stories. It's a great story."

If you don't have a podcast, now you do.

Will You Share Your Story?

Here's what I need to make this happen.

STEP 1. Email me. Give me a brief version of your story and the song it's associated with. The song doesn't have to be yours. But it must be podsafe (permission from the artist to play and it's not a cover song. I can work with you on that).

I'll get back to you when I read your story. If I accept it, go to Step 2.

STEP 2. Record your story. You don't have to make a professional recording. Your phone has a memo feature. That's perfect. 

A couple recording tips to get a clean sound.

1. Set the phone down. Hit record, then don't touch it. 
2. Avoid too much exterior sound. If you can record in a quite place, that'd be preferred. 
3. Don't get too close to the phone. Set it on a table and sit down at the table. Just talk. If you're too close, there'll be lots of pop sounds.
4. Listen to your recording to make sure it sounds there's no sound problems.
5. Please avoid any profanity.

That's about it. Record it.

STEP 3. Send me promo info. I'm trying to add additional promotion outside of the podcast. But I need your feedback. Please provide a very short one paragraph bio about your and an interesting fact. If you have any publicity pictures, those would be great too.

I really want to share your stories. So drop me a line.
