Fuck – I’ve been in meetings since I woke up and still have to wrap up a few projects before show time. Gotta move the show to 4PM now! Sorry! So https://redbarradio.tv at 4pm!
Hey babes. Just wanted to fill you in on a few things – hopefully this stuff isn’t too redundant. So right now things are going swimmingly – we’ve got 398 Barmy members currently, which is great, and the goal of reaching 500 members is looking more and more realistic each day! (500 members was the goal I set for myself when we launched the Barmy.) Why 500? Well, 500 is the number where all the bills get paid, including pay for employees! It keeps us in the “we don’t have to panic about bills” area, which is about where I wanna be after almost 10 years of doing this! If you’re still on the fence about joining the Barmy, remember, your not only getting a shit ton of amazing content, but your helping your favorite show get to a level of success that most independent shows don’t get to! For 33 cents a day, you can be part of something big! https://redbarradio.net/barmy – check out some of the insane shit that has been added this month alone!
Well, so far so good! We’re going on our third week as part of the lineup on XM EXTREME TALK CH. 165. Haven’t really heard much from the bosses over there, but they have said that the fan interaction has been great! SiriusXm doesn’t run ratings/numbers on small shows like ours, so the only way they know people are listening to it, is from listener feedback! If you have 5 extra seconds, please shoot an email to [email protected] ! Tell em how much you love Red Bar on ch.165, and how much you want it to stay on! This will do so much more than you think in terms of helping the show. Thanks to all of the listeners that have done this so far. Please keep it up! It really will determine whether we live or die on XM!
My goal for the new year, is to start doing LIVE shows in different cities each month! The next LIVE EVENT coming up will be in Los Angeles. I am desperately trying to book this event this week, and hope to have tickets up for purchase asap! If you live in L.A., please email me venue suggestions! I have emailed about 13 places with no luck! We are trying to do the show on the weekend of Jan. 20th – so save the date!
If you want us to come do a show in your town, please email [email protected] letting us know which city you want us to come to! Also, please include venue suggestions, as we have no idea where the good places to perform would be. I am keeping track of every email that comes in, and making a list of places that have the most listeners. We will come to any city that has 50 listeners that will come to the show. So make sure to email me, otherwise I won’t know that you exist!
Mike’s birthday is January 14th! Yep, you can totally send him gifts! Need ideas? Check out the AMAZON WISHLIST – https://redbarradio.net/wish
THE EASIEST THING YOU CAN DO
Almost every day after the show, I post HIGHLIGHT CLIPS on Facebook and Twitter. PLEASE SHARE THESE ON YOUR WALLS! The idea is to constantly have these short clips shared, to slowly start building a bigger audience. These videos however, have BARELY gotten any views! Not sure why people aren’t sharing them, but please let me know if there is a particular reason! This is the easiest way to introduce thousands of people to Red Bar quickly and without spending any money. You guys have the power to expose us to potentially MILLIONS of new viewers/listeners. Please remember that the next time you see a highlight clip that we put out! Clicking “share” only takes a second! You can see all of our highlight clips on our YOUTUBE CHANNEL – https://www.youtube.com/redbarradio
THE BRING-BACK GROUP
If you haven’t joined our private Facebook group, you’re missing out. The BRING-BACK group, which started in August after the take-over, has now become the ultimate location for super-fans. I am in this group everyday posting all sorts of stuff, and there really is no better area as of now for Red Bar fans to congregate. You have to ask to join this group, as it is private, but once granted access, you will love it. Ask to join today – http://www.facebook.com/groups/bringbackrbr
I think that’s it for now. See ya on the air!
Doing something a bit different today – Today’s show will air at 10:30PM CST. You heard me! Just had to move some things around for today. Tune in at 10:30pm CST at https://redbarradio.tv !
THE RED BAR RADIO SHOW JOINS THE SIRIUS/XM SATELLITE RADIO FAMILY!
Since 2003, The Red Bar Radio Show has been independently produced by creator/host Mike David, and has basically only been marketed via word of mouth. There have been snippets of success along the way, as well as ups and downs, and a “format” that is forever changing. This week, Red Bar takes it’s comedy Internet radio show / podcast to the next level. Starting Thursday December 8th, the show will become available on SiriusXM Satellite Radio, on EXTREME TALK channel 165!
How is this gonna work?
Everything will remain EXACTLY the same! The podcast and live version of the show, the show that you have now, will be there just as always – FREE, five days a week, at 3pm cst on our website, and up on the podcast feed directly afterward. The SiriusXM show will be weekly (Thursday nights at 10pm cst., on Extreme Talk Channel 165. It will be the EXACT same show as the podcast, except it will only be one hour long. It will remain uncensored, and basically just a shorter version of the show you’ve all come to know and “love.” It’s about as basic as it gets!
The show in it’s infancy will NOT be live. We will be recording it during the week, and sending it over to them to air on Thursdays. So we will technically be doing SIX shows per week, Monday-Friday, with one of those 6 shows being the one that ends up on SiriusXM. Not sure exactly what day we will record the SiriusXM show, or if it will broadcast live on our website or not. The show MAY be available int he BARMY, our bonus content section of the website.
How do we get the new SiriusXM show? Is Sirius and XM the same company now? I’m confused!
Yes, this is a bit confusing. Although the two companies have merged, the programming is still separate in some cases. There are three packages you can get. An XM only package, A Sirius only package, or the SiriusXM package. If you have an XM or SiriusXM package, you can hear us on ch. 165, no problems. However, if you have the Sirius-only package, you may see that there is no channel 165! In that case, call the customer service department, and tell them that you want the “XM ADD-ON” so that you can hear THE RED BAR RADIO SHOW! You can call them at: 1-866-635-2349. For more information, visit their website at http://siriusxm.com
