Podcasting tips for Musicians & Bands
The state of the music industry is all over the map right now, and it is even harder for local Hawaii musicians to get heard and make a living. All of the members of this panel have had success with podcasting (both audio and video) and will discuss with you lessons learned and why they think more of Hawaii's musicians would do well to learn about new media.
