Just wanted to take a moment to express my appreiciation for the availability of as a gathering place for independent musicians across the globe.  Having been associated with the site for almost a year and a half now, I have developed a deep apprciation for the many talented and dedicated musicians and singers, who without such a place may well have toiled in relative obscurity.  My sister and I had never attempted to enter the independent music scene before discovering Mixposure and our music was only known to a relatively small number of family and friends.  We didn't even try to publicize our material on social networks.  We were quite content to simply entertain ourselves.  (Hell, I never uploaded or even emailed an MP3 to anyone before coming here... lol)  As the main driver of our songs and material, it never even occurred to me that associating ourselves with other independent artists would not only expose us to so many wonderful people, but a supportive assembly of like-minded artists who wanted nothing more than to offer their help, encouragement and expertise. 

That we would eventually collaborate with artists of the caliber of Lyrical Princess, Joseph Rodriquez, Scotswolfe, Abysss and David C. Deal, has been a tremendous experience and has allowed our music to gain acceptance. The simple reason for this is that their added talent has made every one of those songs better.  This has made a tremendous impact on our music and how we view the entire process.  I can't help but applaud the efforts of Todd, "Mr. Mixposure", who has maintained and constantly improved the site without any thought of actually making a profit and the legion of DJ's, both past and present, who volunteer their time and effort to get independent material out there for the masses.  Just think of the contribution of JimAE, DaddyRabbit, Vig Wig, the Metal Master, Michael Stone, Bubba Reaves, Doug Dickens and The Barefoot Baroness  Those of you who regularly listen to their radio shows know full well that these entertaining webcasts aren't just thrown together, but take a lot of time and effort.  And to a man (and woman), these people have only one agenda; to promote and help the independent artist make their music known.  Please excuse the length of this blog, but imho, it's more than appropriate to give credit where credit is due and, from time to time, let people know that what they do is truly appreciated.  The TrueVulgarians thank all of you and look forward to many more years here at and Mixstream Radio...

I know my life would be immeasurably less rich and enjoyable without the opportunities provided by Mixposure radio and all the people involved, From Todd to the silent listener.

All I can say Bill is that it is the artists who make this the coolest place to be. We can have the coolest web site and the coolest DJs but without artists like yourself and Jacki it would all be for nothing. I personally have enjoyed your journey right along with you my friend. It is unique and talented folks that go from "well I'll try to put an mp3 up" then realize how talented they are and how others can help them grow that is the lifeblood of Mixposure and it is why all of the cool folks hang out here. All of that is just my opinion of course and you know what they say about those ;)
