The Independent Music Network

Buck McCoy

The Independent Music Network is set to change the music industry forever, so get ready for the ride!

An artist or band will work hard and produce a great single or CD, then what? The major record labels could care less and radio can be a closed shop when it comes to getting new artists on the radio, especially if you are an independent. Many major market program directors can act as judge and jury when it comes to adding new music and there so many consultants in the mix that you can see why new acts never get a shot.

It is our goal to help “level the playing field” by getting the best independent artists, bands and their product out to the entire music world. We are amassing a huge list of hundreds of commercial radio stations to run a syndicated version of the network for both “mainstream” and Country. There will also be a satellite radio version of both formats in the coming months.

With the Independent Music Network we will finally have a new voice in the music industry that is long overdue.

“If I had something like this when I was producing and packaging music acts, I would have been all over it”, said Larry Weir who is now co-editor of New Music Weekly magazine and runs National Record Promotion.

“It’s so hard to get the attention of radio on a large scale and this will be a new and powerful tool”, he added.

Veteran recording artist and producer Billy Vera is also very excited about the new venture and he will be featured on radio and television with his “Music History Class” which will bring an insight of the music business of the younger generation.


A syndicated version is on the way to over 500 radio stations in America and throughout the World. There are both Mainstream and Country versions set for release complete with music from the best independent artists in the universe along with interviews and celebrity guests.


Remember when MTV & VH1 played videos? We are taking you back to that time period with a new slant and look. This time out you will get fresh and innovative videos from new directors 24/7 along with a new “Artists Snapshot” every hour. There will be music specials, “live” studio concerts, and even a music school we call “Music History Class” hosted by recording artist and radio historian, Billy Vera.
