Iowa Music Showcase
About This Show
For older and missing episodes go to https://iowamusicshowcase.bandcamp.com/
The Iowa Music Showcase is just what the name says, a showcase for Iowa music.
But it is a showcase for ALL of Iowa’s music, regardless of style, genre, decade, popularity, or location.
For the purposes of this webiste and occasional podcast, I am defining Iowa music as music made by a band or artist that was based in Iowa at the time of the recording.
Each week, the blog post will feature some source - like a website, playlist, app, or some such - where you can find and/or hear music from Iowa. If you know any sources, send me an email at email@example.com.
Every month (sometimes more often), the website will include a podcast that you can download.
For information, questions, criticism, etc, write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To submit a song, just send an audiofile to email@example.com.
Just to let you know, you can subscribe and/or follow Iowa Music Showcase at the following sites...
