Listen to the new music ... online, urban

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm addicted to public radio news ... and when I'm not listening to that I'm typically shuffling CDs in my car.      I've never been inclined to dial up radio on my computer -- but something crossed my desk earlier this week that made me think I just might give that a re-think.     New music? Artists who aren't part of the music machine?  A chance for  locals to find fame and fortune?  Online and no commercials?     This sounds like fun --- well worth supporting.                 Mark your calendar for 2/26 and set your computer to power217radio.com.   Read on ...    sw                             

We invite you to join our quest to launch Springfield, IL's first online urban music station. MacGriff Media Inc./Power217Radio.com was initially a joint business venture between two Illinois natives. Angel Macon and Ben Griffin founded MacGriff Media Inc., in the fall of 2007, with the goal of someday launching Springfield's first Urban music station! MacGriff Media Inc, is now the parent company to Power217Radio.com!

Our Mission is to help  artists break into the music industry by providing a gateway of opportunity not available with traditional radio stations. As major record labels pull back on promotion for new artists, Power217radio.com will shine a spotlight on the songs of talented musicians from around the world. A strong hit potential score coupled with Power217radio’s viral marketing tools will help level the playing field for the millions of artists working hard to break out.

Power217Radio.com will launch on February 26th 2010MacGriff Media will be hosting a launch party at the Hilton Garden Inn located in Springfield, IL. The event will showcase the talent of unseen unsigned recording artists from as far away as Philadelphia.  The event is open to the public. There will be a cash bar, food, and does require a $10 cover charge. Early arrival is recommended as seating is limited!
