Happy 10th Birthday Mixstream Radio!

Happy 10 Years Mixstream Radio!!
Celebrating 10 years of streaming live DJ shows is quite a phenomenal tenure.
**Saturday June 9th we’re hosting a special show and we hope you’ll join us in chat**
Some personal thoughts I’d like to share:
Last Fall when I learned that the radio side of http://www.mixposure.com would celebrate a decade of live DJ shows I felt a huge sense of pride for what Dazed, WildCherry,and all of you Mixposure members have succeeded in building together.
Along with that pride I have a real fondness for the artists and their respective music, then there is my fondness and pride for all the past DJ’s, and our current DJ Team; Bubba, TV, Tricia, Larry and TeddZ.
We have a devoted chat room community of participants who often say that we are a family, I agree -We are definitely a uniquely rare music community!
Between the stellar caliber of music chops, the collective musicianship, the collaborations between artists, and the devoted support of listeners Mix has become a solid music site that remains a fresh and a credible source for anyone involved in music.
If you are a musician, a songwriter, booking agent, a band manager or someone looking for an alternative to mainstream over commercialized music then Mixposure is where you will find a place to call home.
After having the great pleasure of bringing Barefoot Rock n Blues to you every Sunday evening last summer I was asked to consider managing the radio station side of Mix, happily I will say with great satisfaction that I’ve not regretted agreeing to this adventure for one single second. This community, the listeners, the artists; their music, the collaborations between artists, as well as their friendships are a continuous source of personal inspiration, growth and encouragement. I’ve been involved in some aspect of independent  music since my first job booking local bands for a coffeehouse in the early 70’s but never has my sense of commitment and passion for this independent music philosophy been as strong as it is today at Mix.
I want to Thank you Dazed, WildCherry and all you Mixsters! Congratulations!
~ Toni
p. s. I’d like to add that if you are an Independent musician/songwriter of original music and not a Mix member I honestly and respectfully believe you are doing a great disservice to yourself and your music. We should talk.

The Central Oregon (USA) 11th Hoedown For Hunger will take place at Bend’s Community Center (BCC), 1036 NE 5th St, Bend, OR 97701 on Saturday, Nov. 5 beginning at 3 p.m. This event is kind of mini-festival that features local artists who donate their performances each year to help raise money for BCC’s “Feed the Hungry” project. Many of Central Oregon’s finest acoustic performers participate. This year’s event will include Central Oregon’s busiest performer Bobby Lindstrom as well as 10-year old fiddle phenomenon CJ Neary, a multiple winner at the National Old Time Fiddler’s Championships to go along with state and regional titles. The music tends towards country, bluegrass and folk, but past shows have included some blues, celtic, and soul.

In addition to the music, the Hoedown also features a chili feed with a variety of chili recipes from restaurants and caterers of Central Oregon.

Hey Central Oregon Peeps!!!!

Along with Bobby’s enormous and vast repertoire the evenings tunes will keep the toes tapping and the heart rate pumping.
