Usually on Soundclick site I'll get a few listens to my songs every day but a couple of days ago I got 181 listens on my Gospel site. Some songs were listened to 5 and 6 times. At least some of them are getting heard. A bit of encouragement in a discouraging profession.

Hi Everett:

It's strange how that sometimes happens. I post my songs at ShowCaseYourMusic.com and often will see the "listens" soar to more than 200 in a couple of days. As you may recall, I "roll-over" a short playlist about every five to seven days to keep listeners interested. Unfortunately, SYM is often down (not on-line) and they provide no explanation as to what is causing the problem. Sometimes, they forget to pay their bill to "Go Daddy" or whomever is providing their basic service. It can be very frustrating... but I have to step back and remember, the service is free. So, periodically, the thing goes down and they apparently don't monitor their site.

A significant portion of the site is RAP music and it's ilk... and so, no doubt there is some "minor hacking" activity going on between rivals, I suspect.
As far as I can tell, the site has been down for more than three days this week... and it is possible that the owners have taken a Fourth of July Holiday... and don't have a clue the site has crashed and burned.

I know you have an account there. You would think they would provide a few of us with a phone number or and e-mail address where we could give them a "heads-up" about the situation. They claim that music industry insiders spend lots of time listening... but I have never seen any evidence of this. To make matters worse, they don't seem to catch the idiots who pose as members and post ads for selling watches, perfume, clothing and other junk. (Spam posted on a given page (like mine) and as soon as I detect it has happened, I get on-line and wipe out their spam-ware.) The owners don't seem to care... or if they do, they don't know how to handle the problem. There are supposedly around 3,000 songwriters, artists and Rappers participating at SYM and I'm guessing 50% are Rappers. Most could not write a song if instructions were written on the paper for them.

Discouraging... but because it is free, I suppose it is a small price to pay. I'm considering other alternatives... one being to throw in the towel and find another hobby (painting, writing short stories)... or continuing the novel languishing my file cabinet all these years. Sad.

----Dave

Is SYM down now. I tried to get in a few days ago and couldn't. I guess why there are so many Rappers is if you can talk fast you can come up with a Rap song.

I'm writing more now than ever but haven't put much up on SYM or Soundclick. I have another site where I post my Gospel songs. Seem no one is recording anymore. If they do they record their own songs. I've had lots of people say when or if they record they will get back to me. Yea like the cheque is in the mail. LOL

Don't know Rick, it seems I'm always taking the rap at home.

Good to hear you're so busy writing Everett!

Best, John smile

Finally, the ShowCase website is back "on-line"... and, oddly enough, the idiots who post spam notes about Gucci Handbags and crap like that filled my page with about 27 joke-posts of their silly little commercials. Unfortunately, the SYM website does not provide a method to machine gun them all. Instead, ya hafta eliminate the pesky little buggers one at a time. Makes for a fun morning. I was concerned SYM had forgotten to "pay the rent" again.

I wonder how Brian has managed to keep those fools from posting "spammercials" here? Brilliant guy!

We now return you to your regular broadcast!

Everett,
Do you have a specific site just for Gospel?
