Back after popular demand!  Up next for your audible loving ears! Its been 3 years since the original Double Trouble hit the Halshack airwaves back during the crazy toilet paper lovin' year of 2020..lolLets serve up another stellar show for your musical tray! Its a wild varied romp through different genres that will have your head spinning at how I managed to make it all work with my signature flow..lolThis series was born exclusively on ZENO FM back in 2020! It was later released to the podcast feed. Over the past couple of months I have created almost 10 new shows for this fantastic series. They will slowly be released to the podcast feed over the course of the year. It takes a very different approach to what we normally do and throws your brain into mixed genre mayhem or melancholy bliss. 2 exact same song titles or 2 similar song titles from 2 different bands. Sometimes its 2 robust distinct styles going head to head in this lyrical mess of audible manipulation..lol This show will have you thumping your heels from rock to country to pop and back again! I try to set the song titles up where the next 2 songs are of similar styles until it changes and moves on accordingly.

Episode 126: Halshack Ep 27.5 (80s were Dazy 2) July 2023 (bonus show w- Belinda Carlisle)
Lets get back to basics folks!! The 80s/90s were the king of the road for music! Diversity in music is what makes the culture of the world spin out on the airwaves. Back in the day we opened our ears and eyes and our borders to music from all over the world from the British Invasion to South African vibes to Gregorian chants even...lol Its a crime that music has flown in the direction it has. Newcomers (DARKBIRD) from Austin, TX are certainly not guilty of any musical "Crimes" as their new hit has soared in for a landing on the Halshack! I'm glad they decided to pick my landing zone and launching pad for their band. We will do what we can to help Darkbird build a nest here at my show!We even got super lucky to land Belinda Carlisle and Gabe Lopez in a new duet "California Blues". We are absolutely not feeling the blues around the Shack these days! I'm honored to have their support!  Over the years the labels seemed to have forgot where quality meets innovation and "catchy" writing skills as well as pro experience to produce a top hit. The hits of today fail in comparison on many fronts from the forefathers and mothers of popular music of the past. Its not about "Get off my lawn"!! or "Kids today and their music"...lol It's about the very quality of whats being produced from an objective professional perspective. That all stopped about 10 to 15 years ago. That's when the decline of diversity set in and we only have what we have today at the top. We cant forget what "powerhouse hits" came well before the industry decided to stop looking for real singer songwriters and closing our musical borders to the knowledge of the world radio sphere. Its a "crime" that no one knows these bands exist and could compete with the greats of the past! Its a "crime" that there's no central place for music where we can share in that collective experience that made our world so connected without the internet or our phones. These new technologies have made us less connected than ever before!Lets rock 80s/90s!! Pop wave, Brit wave, Americana/rock in this show!! Have fun!!Up next maybe Ep 28 Shacknation 13 (full talk and music) or another theme show, not sure yet! Whatever it is, it will be great as always from your trusted guru of the radio dial!We got some BIG announcements coming soon about the High Rock Music Festival and the Shackhole down at the Axehole in Lexington NC!Find my show everywhere on Itunes, Iheart Radio, Podomatic, Deezer, Amazon Music and many more!Halshack.com you can find everything here including the tracklist at the SHACKLISTS page!Halshack.com/shacklistsThanks so much for becoming a fan! Help spread the word! This has been a 10 year passion project with no money made! Time to turn Halshack into an LLC and start the income stream for the bands with festivals and much more!

Episode 125: Halshack ep 27.5 (Rap Shack 13) July 2023-- WARNING!! 18++ Explicit Content!!
Brand new Reverbnation Campaign #7 (Rap Shack 13) almost 1000 submissions so far and these roughly 20 new artists were chosen to be a part of my special rap/hip-hop series that's been earning many accolades throughout the industry. The nature of music is a funny thing. True it's ever changing but good quality acts don't usually go against the grain. Nature gave humans the ability to vibrate with the world in musical bliss across multiple genres and styles from new to classic and from young to old. Rap/hip-hop/R&B is deeply rooted in blues/jazz/gospel buried in the rich history of the backwoods also city pubs and clubs of the south.Rapshack thirteen is lean, mean, and green with the rising talent that can only be found out there in the indie wilderness of hip hop land. Take a musical hunting trip through the vast prairie of rap/hip-hop sounds that are a rare find from the usual habitat of the top music market. Rest assured you can always escape the insanity of the world as you spend some quality time outside the "concrete corporate" musicsphere with the Halshack! Lets all get back to the basics of what the last 30 years of hip-hop has taught us about writing a good catchy tune and that would be................It's all in the melody! Melody is the key to unlocking the sweet spot of rap infusion. There was once a day when rap was one dimensional and kept in a box. That box has exploded to an artistic robust world of music that only nature herself could have created. Catch my boy "IamTonyDomingo" with his debut track "You're Missed"  (featuring the cool beats of UK producer 2Deep with sweet soft vocals by Marian) on the worldwide Halshack airwaves hailing the mountains of Tennessee. Try not to let the insanity of the world get you down like Leroy Booker with his new track debut "I'm Insane". Hope you have a good journey through the backwoods and down the backroads to visit my RAPSHACK. This is an exclusive trip you can only take here at the Halshack! Find the show everywhere on the web at Amazon Music, Iheart Radio, Itunes, Podomatic, and many more! Visit the show website to find 15 pages of content built over the last 10 years just for you the listener! Halshack.comMore to come with news of the Shackhole challenge game night this summer!
