CHEETAH CONSERVATION FUND ANNOUNCES
Downloads for Dollars
An Innovative Partnership to Benefit Music and Conservation
Music lovers everywhere can now help the wild cheetah each time they download the hit song" From a Window," performed by Slowmo. The single can be found on digital music stores such as Apple's iTunes, MSN Music, Rhapsody, and Music Net. Each download will send a heartfelt donation to the Cheetah Conservation Fund on behalf of the artists.
In the wake of the Hurricane Katrina disaster, many musicians donated proceeds from album sales to victims of this catastrophe. The healing power of music came to the forefront to help those in need. The sincerity of collective artistic efforts was duly noted. What effect would music have on society if it were continually used to garner attention for those in need? In a digital society, shouldn't digital sales play a major role in fundraising? Downloads for Dollars hopes to answer these questions. The program is a revolutionary idea partnering stellar independent musicians with established non-profit organizations, and addresses a dual purpose: (1) Give deserving artists much needed recognition and a viable outlet to sell their music; and (2) Provide a continuous opportunity for non-profit organizations to raise money for their stated aims.
"Downloads for Dollars" was created by DJ Come of Age and Markus Ekholm of Slowmo. Together, this DJ/producer combo has garnered international acclaim with the podcast Soul Music of the World and a catalog of over 200 songs, beats, and graphic designs!

"Ambiance is Everything". There is no place in the world quite like the Untamed Tongues Poetry Lounge. Headed by Warrick "The Husbandman" and Takicha Roundtree, this venue is the nation's premiere platform of spoken word talent. Responsible for breathing new life into poetry, their stage has catapulted both independent musicians and spoken word artists to new heights. My longstanding relationship with Warrick dates back many moons. He introduced me to Bekay the Brass King as well as countless artists featured on my show. With due respect, I now give him a proper introduction.
Listen closely to the voice, the delivery, the passion which with he delivers message and song. My own style, a mere emulation of his natural gift. This is the Untamed Tongues! This is Mr. Roundtree doing what he does best! So welcome to the spot! Tell a friend, pull up a chair, and prepare to be entertained with only the best in neo soul and spoken word majesty!

Come of Age in the mix??? Be sure to check out all the mixes and podcast episodes at BZOO Homegrown Radio. This special mix is called 'Tish 2' and is a gem done on two turntables...old school style. A great sample of my mixing style and chillout sessions. Special thanks to BZOO Radio for their unending support.

Soul David has warmed the hearts of thousands the world over. Ever since I put him on the show, hundreds have written to inquire about soul music's latest sensation! A natural vocal talent, the music inspires as we feel the vibe of the Italian Street Soul. The remix of Lasciati Andare was done by my brother, super producer FaraOne4! If you feel this, then link to it. The music being berthed from Italy's premier duo is not to be overlooked. Take a minute to enjoy the sounds and share in the zest, the global appeal which is Soul David!

By now you know this show is about all things soulful. From time to time we have featured guest DJs, podcasters, and a healthy dose of international musicians with fierce showmanship! Today's Labor Day Special will help you whistle while you work. We feature the talents of Honey Soul...podcaster, dj, interviewer to the stars. I'm a fan of her podcast which has up close and personal interviews with newsmakers of the soul scene. Find Honey Soul at her homesite, iTunes, and Myspace.com. Also, she is a regular DJ at Superstation ProjectVibe.net! Be sure to get all the downloads and support her wonderful work via donation and/or online purchase of artist's tracks! We proudly give to you the one and only Honey Soul.....
I'm a strong believer in making your own opportunities. In Oct. 2004 I created a site called honeysoul.com. Honeysoul.com's audience consists of a large number of loyal, soul music supporters who actually buy music (yes I know that's a strange concept but I'm not kidding, it still actually happens). In addition to honeysoul.com featuring my own mix of "radio blogs," full CD previews, videos, new releases, and headlines I am very proud of my interviews or "conversations" as I like to call them.
I have had the pleasure of talking to Jaguar Wright, Dwele (twice), Wayna, Gaelle, Carmen Rodgers, Lina, Julie Dexter, Darien Brockington (twice), Syleena Johnson, Ladybug Mecca, Stokley Williams (Mint Condition), Jonz, Geno Young, Jon B, Anthony David, Goapele, Frank McComb (twice), Valencia Robinson, Eska, Javier, Esthero, Yewande, Joi, Ron Isley, Lisa Shaw, Van Hunt, Amel Larrieux, Kim Hill, Teena Marie, Donell Jones, Bilal Salaam, Sy Smith, Randevyn, Carol Riddick, Yolanda Johnson and Raheem Devaughn. Who's next? It may be you. If you're a soul artist making meaningful music, let's talk.
