Ep 19.5 (Stay Home, Don't Roam) Apr 2020 ....bonus show, music only
A year ago today I left for Nashville, TN to start a clandestine journey into growing a colossal music juggernaut out some fine talented indie bands from the "backwoods" and "unknowns" of the world!! We have succeeded in building the coolest reputation for outstanding talent! Next step...conquer! We need investors. Start building a membership to offer exclusive content for the members! Build the base we can pay the staff and the bands!! I like this plan! Maybe you will too! Drop me a line and let me know what you think! Thanks so much!
Now to business at hand..lol
HOWDY PARTNERS!! HOW YA'LL DOIN'? (as we say here in the south..lol)
What ya'll doin' all sitting at home like that? Act like you're saving the world or somethin' by chillin' on your keester or mowin' the grass!..lol Oh wait YOU ARE SAVING THE WORLD!
THANKS SO MUCH for staying home and staying alive! ah ah ah ah Staying Aliiivvveee...oh sorry just having a little BEE GEES fun! ..lol
So while your cooped up at home and need some cool music to get you through your day then look no further than this "virus" free eargasm.
The CORONA VIRUS might have us all preoccupied at the moment but we all need music to turn too during these dark and uncertain times. I got a "cue" from Dave Cruttendan (owner of Discover Unsigned in the UK) from his facebook post about putting together a "hit" song virus playlist and well I was already struming my brain on this idea anyway. Thanks Dave for the push as well as the new video channel SHACKVIDS was inspired by Dave as well yet I was already on this in my brain...lol
I think Dave and I are just cut from the same cloth and on the same page. He's a bright dude and a good friend who helps so much with the indie music scene in the UK. So does Tizz Shearer too over at XRP!! You guys are the best!!
SO these song titles all have to do with some "Quarantine Blues" which was going to be the original name but I just thought that was too dark and its not all dark music. Anyway the song titles as usual were perfectly timed for yet another world event. These were the logical choices for song titles and for the rotation timing of most of these tracks AAANNDDD it perfectly fits with todays world theme. I cant make this stuff up folks.. I swear!
I pick songs based on rotation and theme then I start forming the play patterns by flow and genre, the kicker is the songs are the logical choice for that show but the songs have not been played recently or hardly at all or it was just time to kick that one back out again. Its just eerie and the subject matter will fit the timing. I dont plan this stuff folks. Lately Ive been taking cues from my show and life and just roll with it and its panning out to be a blast!!
Song Titles..I was gonna make a story with them but I think alot of this is just too damn funny and "more to make light heart of our lockdown blues" not to make light of the travesty that has destroyed so many lives and family members hearts.
HALSHACK is very sorry for your loss if any of my listeners have been affected by Covid-19. My prayers go out to you and your loved ones.
Have fun folks! You can find all my shows at Halshack.com

Halshack (POPIFY 5) Spotify Exclusive (Dec 2019) official release to the RSS feed 3-22-20
Its POPIFY 5 (Spotify Exclusive)!! Only the best music makes a Popify episode and this may be the best one yet! Certainly the longest and chocked full of pop infused styles across several different genres. I will not double up on songs in these shows. Each Popify episode contains exclusive music that can only be heard in these episodes. Somewhere in each show there is a hidden gem or 2 or 3 that you will only find in this series and no where else in my podcast feed shows. Very rarely will you even hear a same artist in this series.
Well folks "In Spite of It All" we made it!! 5 years down over 100 artists, over 50 episodes including 6 Spotify exclusive shows. Over 400 individual potential hit songs have been played or aired! Over 70k subscribers and growing including plays and broadcasts from over 70 major US markets and over 70 countries have enjoyed the Halshack universe and musical empire. This is how "Legends Are Made" folks! Start BIG with a grass roots movement by not getting involved with "Bad Company" and finding good people to help grow your plight!
"Schools Out" for the winter break and while everyone is enjoying their "Fortunes" of Christmas gifts and holiday cheer, you should not take for granted your "Beautiful Life". "I Cant Be" your property but I can be your good time in the car and "Everything Will Be Alright" with the Halshack in tow as you have "No Walls" around you in search of "Something More" from your musical experience.
Its now "Time" for the show to expand and open its doors for business as we ride the "Rising Tide" for the "Coming Attraction" that has not yet shown "Who" that person is that will help me grow to the next level whether it be a new woman in my life or a new partner. I shall have "Faith" that this new partnership or love interest or both will be a match made in Heaven as I hope we "Belong Together" and won't be feeling very "Green" today as Johnny!
Look for a new named based show coming to the main feed in January (The Name Game) dealing with song titles with names of people, places, roads or months. Goes along well with the Living Wilds bonus show just released. All subjects covering people, animals, and nature.
Enjoy all the shows at Spotify or anywhere on the web!!
SPOTIFY has since retracted my show from being on their service and cited that "Spotify for Podcasters was not meant to be used as a music distribution tool" even though they "KNEW" full well I was on their site for a year because they had to approve me then they removed me.
HAHAHA! Its ok I know what it is. Im a way better playlister than anybody they could possibly find or hire and they dont like it. I have more knowledge and experience than they ever will!
Lets bring indie out front, the way it should be!
Halshack Ep 19.5 (Crewsin' & Musin') Mar 2020 ...bonus show
HAPPY ST. PATTIES DAY!! Not very happy I know with this invisible enemy lurking around. Lets trade those frowns for a crown and let the KINGS of indie music be heard!....Just kidding..lol, but they are all really great bands!! Just listen for yourself and you will agree!
In this episode you will hear all bands and artists that have had a review from our excellent staff of professional bloggers and former major record label scouts!
Its ep 19.5 (Crewsin' and Musin')
Well folks the "WHISTLE KING" has blown his siren that everyone needs to "STAND BACK" and take a long hard look at our lives because "EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE".
So "WHILE WE WAIT" for our meds to be restocked and a vaccine to be generated lets all have some "VITAMIN K" to get the body healthy again so we can get this "PRICELESS" world moving again after the virus has run its course.
We will all need to "GET UP" off the couch from watching Netflix and Disney+ as well as rebound out of video game la-la land once life gets back to normal, whatever the new normal will be.
There should be plenty of "GASOLINE" around for your trip back to work and your errands too.
Will all be feeling "BETTER OFF" in the future not feeling like this is a "PLACE I WAS BEFORE" all this started so we can be prepared if it returns.
more to this story later....just wanted to get this published

Halshack Ep 19 (Precious Hearts) Feb/Mar 2020- Main show (New version rel 3-5-20)
New retooled version 2 (3-5-20) get it now!
Cleaned up my audio, added a new song, "enhanced" the audio for Monster, fixed an issue with Secret Social Club and the band Asking Alexandria that was a misunderstanding from a bio I read. I cut 5 mins of my banter to streamline the show, added a couple small bits I missed and polished it off with sped up breaks. Its a whole new show in essence and the show it should have been to begin with!! Have fun!
NEW MUSIC AND NEW BAND EXPLOSION!!
Brand new Season 3 reboot pt2!!!
Ep 19 (Precious Hearts)
Well folks, its still February (the month of LOVE) for one last day but its never too late to spread the message of music and good vibes.
This show was meant to be out before cupid flung his arrow but it didn't work out and as you listen to the show you will know why. Things had to play out the way they did for some very important music and new bands to make their way on to my radar literally up until the day (Feb 28th) when I started recording.
AIRPORT IMPRESSIONS has a world premiere of their brand new stellar track "Why are We Here" (just released on the 28th???...crazy!!) on this episode as well as a double mystery spotlight featuring 2 different bands. We got tons of new rock bands including one that just dropped their new track this week!! Heck yeah!! Their name is SECRET SOCIAL CLUB!
SHOW CORRECTION!! I made a remark in the show that a former member of Asking Alexandria is in SECRET SOCIAL CLUB. Well thats not true, they are friends and he helped put this band together but hes not in it, Their BIO was confusing and it wasnt clear on that subject. I feel very ashamed of this mistake.
We got new rock from South Carolina and Georgia as well as new tracks from some of our returning faves and new artists as well making their debut on this 2 hour HALSHACKGANZA!!
So much great news!! DEEZER will be adding my show hopefully soon and a new radio station from the US has found me on their horizon. 102.9 The Blazing Rock FM will soon be airing the Shack!! Thanks so much!
Catch the bonus ep 19.5 "Music is Love"!!
