SpinTunes Interview

On Friday, August 5, 2011, I had an absolute wonderful time having four of the SpinTunes (@SpinTunes) musicians, past and present, join me on the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show on The Look 24/7 (TheLook247). This interview was long overdue and I’m so happy that we finally got it done.

Due to a family thing coming up, Matt and Donna were unable to join us. However, it was awesome having Mark Meritt (@marksmeritt), Dave Leigh (@dr_lindyke), Denise Hudson (@RangerDenni) and Bryce Jensen (@psychobman) on the show.

If you are curious about what it takes to participate in a song writing contest or just SpinTunes and the creative process in general, you’ll get a lot from this interview.

And now, the show notes!
