Its the "Lucky 13" and time for the Halloween theme and the bonus ep "Hallowshack". This time around we got 13 very "indie" bands and artists with just the right amount of new flare meets familiar. We got a new popular band Fate Under Fire whose currently involved with the excellent Netflix TV show (13 Reasons Why).

We got some new staff members and writing review crew so please welcome Brandon Barnes and Nate Potts to the crew. Both of them come with decades experience working in FM radio and they have come on board in support of the show and our plight.

We got more new Paper Jackets exclusive tracks plus plenty other neat surprises including new acts from across the pond in Ireland and Great Britain.

Be sure to check out the new bonus episode (music only) the "Hallowshack". Gonna feature song titles (maybe a band name) dealing with all things Halloween from dark to black to death and dying. Gonna be a "hell of a party"..lol

As always, give me some time and all tracks for both new shows will be posted at the website.

For all you "Rockaholics" anonymous members out there. Its the best of Stealing Eden and SCS. Feast your ears on a 1 hour smackdown (music only) of these 2 metalriffic rock powerhouses!! IMO the best 2 mainstream rock ready bands I've discovered and for that matter the best 2 rock acts (BIG FMradio bands included) that we've had the pleasure of showcasing in the past decade!! These 2 bands stack up against some of the best that have ever graced the stage pros or indie! TOO GOOD TO BE UNKNOWN!!

You can find the tracklist at my website under Shacklists.

www.halshack.com/shack-lists

And reviews for both these bands from our excellent staff.

Halshack has been granted a rare opportunity to breakout an upcoming band that has an officially endorsed cover of HUGE MEGA 1983 hit "Stand Back" by Stevie Nicks! She enlisted them to make it by way of mutual management team for the stellar band "PAPER JACKETS" and loved it! Its been authorized for exclusive pre-release on my show only!! WOW!! Thanks so much to the music elites and the management staff and to Stevie Nicks for allowing me this incredible honor!!

We've also got a slew of new artists plus past greats that are sure to aim to please the potential audience that may be listening in on this show. Ive got word from some various sources that the Halshack may be stirring the music pot just enough to cook some attention from a number of important gurus in the biz!

We've got another past Fox TV star, this time someone who used to play on "New Girl", she's all grown up and ready for the spotlight!

There's even a former American Idol Season 11 star in the mix fronting a nifty band from the capital of my home state (Raleigh, NC)

Catch us now on Podomatic, PlayerFM, Castbox, Spotify and Itunes as well as many others.

I'll add more later.....getting it on the web now! updated...7-14-18

Happy New Year 2018!! Time to get crankin' with a new episode and all new 11 bands and artists to get your new year started off with a bang!!

There's even some Hollywood star talent in this show. A popular actor turned musician will be featured amongst many other rising talent hopefuls.

There's even an all-new me to present with a new mic setup, I'm sounding more professional and ready to take on the radio airwaves in any city anywhere USA/Canada/UK/Australia and wherever else people like good music and a happy endearing infectious host...me!!

So as usual I'm not one to tell you who is in the show until you hear it. My reputation proceeds itself, just hit the play button and you will be pleasantly surprised that you have stumbled across the best kept secret in indie rock/pop/alt radio. We are growing immensely and are now featured on Discover Unsigned Radio, Bombshell Radio, The Indie Bible, FIYA music platform as well as Podomatic, PlayerFM, Mixcloud, Fandalism, Halshack website, Facebook and Twitter. Thank you for helping us to achieve success and for your continued support to help us reach our goals!!

I will be posting track lists for all episodes at my website as well as links where each episode can be heard. The track list for this show will be posted at a later date once its had its run. I don't believe in spoilers, I believe you should have no preconceptions when you hit the play button other than trust that I will not waste a minute of your time on non-marketable, non-mainstream radio ready bands that don't have proven reputations and tract records with at least some moderate success within their region of the world or maybe even globally.

In this episode there will be:
Alt Vault..2 songs
Funk Trunk..2 songs
Mystery Spotlight including Pop Stop....4 songs
Rock Block ....3 songs
Blues Grooves (Americana)..2 songs

Within these segments I award special tracks recognition.

Shacktrack Of the Month
Breakout Artist of the Month
Homegrown Artist of the Month (Local North Carolina and SC acts)

All-new award for Ep. 11
Songwriter award ..thinking of calling it the Shack Muse

So listen and find out who wins the all-new Shack Muse of the Month!!

P.S. be sure to look for 11.5 "Shackstars", there will be 2 versions floating around for Airport Impressions and Narrow Plains. Why is there an 11.5 and why is there 2 versions? Oooohhh..Im' soooo glad you asked..lol

Well since this show also runs on 2 radio stations Bombshell Radio and Discover Unsigned, I have 2 hour time slots to fill so I make an extra 45 min showcase on past talent and officially with this release they will be full cd's. (Well as much as I can fit anyway..lol) There will be no me just music and you can find a track list posted on the podcast and at my website.

Now I made 2 versions cause frankly I couldn't decide who to use and who to keep back for episode 12 Shackstars and I thought I would let the radio stations play both if they wanted or they could choose. Plus these camps are just so nice about sharing and spreading the love all around for the Halshack that I shall always try to return the favor for these so helpful ladies and gents.

Thanks again folks!! See you soon for Episode 12!!

Ep. 10.5 "Shackcredibles" extended Battleshack edition 11/2/17

Episode 10.5 "Shackcredibles" posted 11-2-17

Well surprise folks...special edition of the Halshack Indie Rockcast. After the many votes from the awesome Battleshack contest we had this summer, there were many really good acts that got votes but not enough to make the Top 10 so this is a honorary episode to show them so love for managing to impress some of the listener base.

Well done to these acts for showing up in the contest with some much deserved attention!! Some of these are new songs, some are posted or have been played in the past episodes. Its a short 45 minute dive into some dang good talent and fun songs to boot!!

I had to make this also to fill my 2 hour time slots with Bombshell Radio in Canada and Discover Unsigned in the UK. Thanks guys for supporting the show. This is mainly just music with very little of me and that will be explained in the show.

Listen.. have fun....and please if you got time, drop one of these bands a line on Twitter or Facebook and tell them you heard them on the Halshack. Thank you all!!

Well we've been having a little contest all summer where you the listener got to place votes for your fave Halshack artists and bands.

The contest ran for 2 months and we closed the voting on Labor Day 2017. Originally the idea was to make a show for the top 3 artists but I thought that would get kind of boring so I changed up and decided we would have a top 10 "Shackdown" instead...HA!!

So this is a show dedicated to the bands that got the most votes.

In order to be fair...each vote consisted of 3 bands or artists so that way we got an unbiased look at who the best talent is. I dont like contests based on voting alone. Anyone can vote up your band multiple times or you get all the fans coming on and voting so in order to curb these habits, I allowed only one vote per person, (the voting algorithm I used was able to pinpoint multiple votes from same users and kick them out)

Also we had several tie breaking decisions to make as well so we made sure the right artists were appropriately placed within the top 10! It's a sophisticated algorithm and I think it gave us the best possible scenario for our top 10 results.

Sure people could argue well I liked this band over this band but that's all about personal preference and I cant make up votes that didn't happen or take away votes because someone disagrees.

This seems to be the general consensus among our listener base and the Top 10, especially the top 5, are all of equal talent and certainly deserve the attention and praise.

(side note)....there's a special extended ep 10.5 bonus show "Shackcredibles" featuring some of the bands that got votes but not enough to make the top 10. Hope you check that out as well.

Thanks for listening and supporting indie music.
