I'm one of those people who are usually early adopters, be it technology, music, or some weird fringe underground movement. I'm also one of the last ones to notice when it's severely antiquated, or worse, completely dead. I was just another nerd with a... (Read Full Article)


Show #101: Ben Myers

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, May 8, 2011
Though they are still a matter of much controversy among musicians, the fact is that open mic nights are probably the largest and best resources I've found for catching new or relatively unheard talent and getting them spotlighted and introduced to t... (Read Full Article)


Show #100: Good Friends Good Tunes

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, April 24, 2011
 Reflections on a Century of Episodes Show #100.  Somehow I'd always known we'd get here, even though many of the shows that originally inspired me to get into podcasting have long since faded -- some of them with many fewer shows than this.... (Read Full Article)


Show #099: Jeff Randall and the Sunday Best

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, April 10, 2011
Having just recently re-edited and re-mixed Show #001, it's become glaringly obvious that the biggest difference between those early shows and these most-recent shows is that things have gotten a lot more relaxed around here.  Not to say that the earl... (Read Full Article)


Show #098: Sleeper Cell

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, March 27, 2011
This week marks another foray into the largely-uncharted (by Indy In-Tune at least) waters of Indianapolis' Hip Hop scene, this time with the kindly assistance of former guest, and friend of the show, Brad Real as our guide.  I must admit, I'm ... (Read Full Article)


Show #097: Yukon Fox

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, March 13, 2011
I'm pretty excited about this week's show, not because it finally clears out my backlog of raw interview recordings sitting on my hard drive, thus freeing up valuable disk space to install Command and Conquer 4, but because it gives me an opportunity to s... (Read Full Article)


Show #096: Brad Real

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, March 6, 2011
Lest you think that I'm stuck in a singer/songwriter rut, if there is such a thing, I though we might switch it up here and try something different this week.  While I can't say that I will ever "get" hip hop, after meeting several of the gu... (Read Full Article)


Show #095: Junk Box Mike

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, February 27, 2011
You know, I've done a lot of these little intro/blog posts.  So many that I've forgotten what I've said in half of them.  Like the one that I wrote here, but just erased for because it was surprisingly similar to, and even borrowed a couple of jo... (Read Full Article)


Show #094: Cootie Crabtree Returns

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, February 20, 2011
Lots of fun in this week's episode, which will hopefully be as entertaining to listen to as it was to record.  First off, it features the return of Cootie Crabtree, one of our more-popular guests, last seen a little over a year ago ... which in my boo... (Read Full Article)


Show #086: Brian Pitzer

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, February 13, 2011
As with the last episode, this week's show has been a long time in the making and completes our two-part look into the Frankfort music scene (see Show #089) as we sample the music of Brian Pitzer.  Brian is another one of those multi-faceted player... (Read Full Article)


Show #082: Outer Sanctum Returns

By: Darrin Snider -- Thursday, January 27, 2011
Remember what I said last week about confusing episode numbering? This week marks the return of Outer Sanctum to the show in an interview recorded back in August, but held in reserve until now, while we awaited final mastering of their first full-length C... (Read Full Article)


Show #089: Jason Wells

By: Darrin Snider -- Monday, January 17, 2011
Thoroughly confused by the numbering scheme of the episodes yet? Okay, it's about to get more confusing. This episode marks the second part of our two-part foray into the Frankfort Music Scene. That may sound like a joke, but they really do have some ex... (Read Full Article)


Show #091: September Sky

By: Darrin Snider -- Thursday, January 13, 2011
With all due respect, as much as I love my singer-songwriters and my indie bands that make up such a large portion of the guests on this show, every once in a while, it's great to just kick back with a hard rock/metal band and just let 'er rip. After fo... (Read Full Article)


Show #093: Pres Maxson Returns

By: Darrin Snider -- Saturday, January 1, 2011
What else can be said about Pres Maxson that hasn't already been said? I asked myself this very question when his people woke me out of a sound sleep at 3:30 AM, and informed me that Pres was ready to come out of his self-imposed exile and begin doing p... (Read Full Article)


Show #092: The Michaels

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, December 12, 2010
Surprisingly, you get very little actual feedback when you do a podcast like this one. Oh sure, there are the death threats every time I change the format of the show or use improper grammar in a sentence, and of course there are the people that download ... (Read Full Article)


Show #090: Mansuper

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, December 5, 2010
Not quite sure what to do by way of a blog post for this week's guest. A critical analysis of his music, I'm sure he would agree, would be pointless. Some long-winded diatribe defending his validity as a musician, preemptively striking at potential let... (Read Full Article)


Show #085: Color Icon Gray

By: Darrin Snider -- Thursday, November 18, 2010
So after the random chaos of the Precore interview last week, we figured we'd give you something a little more cerebral and thought-provoking this time around. Color Icon Gray (the nom de plume of maestro Eric Wasson), is a band you've not seen playing ... (Read Full Article)


Show #084: Precore

By: Darrin Snider -- Tuesday, November 16, 2010
All these interviews are different. Thank God, or I'd have gone nuts years ago. Before we record a show, I usually take a few minutes and prep the band for what to expect. I explain to them that I like to keep the show natural, less question-and-answe... (Read Full Article)


Show #088: Vestiges of Ecstasy

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, November 14, 2010
Are you starting to get confused at the way the show numbers are completely jumping around out of sequence with no logical reason behind them? Then you're going to love this week's episode. Gregg Jones, Mia Kileen, and I (collectively known as "represe... (Read Full Article)


Show #083: Five 'Til Dawn

By: Darrin Snider -- Friday, November 12, 2010
This is another one of those shows I've been waiting for quite a while to do, not only because Five 'Til Dawn is one of my favorite bands to go see around town, but also because it's an offshoot band of The Dirty Third, which is another of my favorite ba... (Read Full Article)


The Untidy Nine Conspiracy Part One: Whatever Happened to Tim Spainhower?

By: Darrin Snider -- Thursday, October 21, 2010
I had a funny experience at the bar last night. I was in a discussion with one of the open mic players about some point of trivia involving a classic band's lineup on one particular album, or some such thing. Eventually the guy I was talking to realized ... (Read Full Article)


Show #087: Cara Jean Wahlers and Paradise Recovered

By: Darrin Snider -- Monday, October 11, 2010
Had a lot of fun recording this week's show, as is obvious from the number of edits that were made to keep it on-topic and down to the time allotted. I've often felt that featured artist Cara Jean Wahlers' first appearance on the show failed to properly... (Read Full Article)


Show #081: Dead Man's Grill Returns

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, September 26, 2010
What a difference a year makes. Just 12 short months ago, Dead Man's Grill was an excellent, if undistinguished, hard rock band battling against a couple dozen of their peers in a battle of the bands competition on Indy's west side. When they last appear... (Read Full Article)


Show #080: Finer Returns

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, September 19, 2010
This week kicks off another set of "... Returns" shows, which I've previously mentioned are a lot of fun for me, not only because I get to hang out with old friends, but also I get a more-relaxed interview that delves into more tangential topics than the... (Read Full Article)


Show #079: Borrow Tomorrow

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, September 12, 2010
I think every band pretty much has that one word or phrase that sums them up when someone asks you to describe them: crazy, parting, virtuosic, heavy -- I'm sure wordsmith and Scrabble master Robert Newport can come up with a few more-creative ones. The... (Read Full Article)


Show #078: Stacy Basner Presents: The Post Script

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, September 5, 2010
It's a source of both joy and frustration that I can't listen to and become intimately familiar with every band in Indianapolis. I mean, I'm working on it, but at last count there were about 4000 at various levels in the metro area -- assuming MySpace pag... (Read Full Article)


Show #077: Glass Halo

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, August 29, 2010
Despite what you may have been reading on our Twitter page, through automated announcements programmed a month ago, Indy In-Tune is off it's Summer hiatus and gearing up to bring you some great music and interviews through the rest of the year. The first ... (Read Full Article)


Show #076: Camby Road

By: Darrin Snider -- Monday, August 23, 2010
Did it really take  four and a half years for me to feature a country band on Indy In-Tune?  Well, yeah, possibly, but not for lack of trying.  I do recall co-sponsoring a country battle of the bands at 8 Seconds Saloon, which got pretty much no response, ... (Read Full Article)


Show #075: Podcast Battle 2010 Winners' Circle

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, August 15, 2010
I promise this will be the last time we plug the 2010 Podcast Battle of the Bands -- mostly because it's time to start thinking about the 2011 Battle. However, when you get a one-time billing of the first and second place winners, at our favorite local mu... (Read Full Article)


Show #074: Chad Mills Returns

By: Darrin Snider -- Monday, August 9, 2010
Some people complain about them, some people love them, but for those of you who haven't figured it out yet, these "... Returns" shows should really just be called "Darrin shoots the breeze with his buddies," because -- since all of the obligatory biograph... (Read Full Article)


Show #073: Brett Wiscons

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, August 1, 2010
The last time Brett Wiscons was on the show, he was lead singer of a popular local band who had written a few songs and recorded them on their first EP, which was due to arrive in grand spectacle the following week; I was a newbie podcaster, recently divor... (Read Full Article)


Show #072: Pres Maxson Presents: The Blaire Reinhard Band

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, April 11, 2010
As Indy In-Tune approaches its fourth anniversary next week, it's nice to know there are still new things to try and new directions to take all of this mess in. Case in point, this week's show -- the first in what will hopefully be a number of "Artists Pr... (Read Full Article)


5th Annual Rock and Read Benefit

By: Darrin Snider -- Monday, April 5, 2010
Okay, so we all know there's a recession. We all know there's a budget shortfall. We all have opinions about how the state should make up the money and whether or not cutting $300 million from education was a good idea or not. This isn't really the ve... (Read Full Article)

Show #069: Gypsy Revival

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, January 3, 2010
Apologies for the late delivery of this episode, but it's been quite a busy month aroud the ol' barn here. In addition to the usual holiday mess, we've endured lay-off's, day-job changes, and the launch of our first Podcast Battle of the Bands, which turn... (Read Full Article)


Show #068: The New Finland Radicals

By: Darrin Snider -- Tuesday, December 8, 2009
There's something about the power trio format. From Buddy Holly and the Crickets to The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Cream, the three-man rock lineup seems to be synonymous with long instrumental jams, heavy guitar chords, and ultra-tight rock played with ... (Read Full Article)


Show #067: Goliathon

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, November 29, 2009
I think one of the great joys of music as personal expression -- that is, the thing that elevates groups from, "Yeah, I like those guys," to "You don't understand: you've got to hear these guys the way I do" -- is the element of discovery. I've talked a ... (Read Full Article)


Show #066: Bobby Clark

By: Darrin Snider -- Thursday, November 19, 2009
This show has been in the planning stages for months, and was one that I had really been looking forward to, knowing all along that it was going to be a good one. I meet a lot of artists doing these shows, and in general, most of them are quite nice, very... (Read Full Article)


Show #065: Bashiri Asad

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, November 15, 2009
Obviously, the main goal of what we do here is to expose artists (particularly up-and-coming ones) to a broader audience. Secondary to that, however, is the idea of introducing audiences to styles of music that they may not be overly familiar with. Granted... (Read Full Article)


Show #064: Cootie Crabtree

By: Darrin Snider -- Thursday, November 12, 2009
In retrospect, it was inevitable that Mr. Coot Crabtree would make it on to this show eventually. As someone who's worked with several of our former guests, is a staple (dare we say, 'living legend') in our local singer/songwriter community, is a former po... (Read Full Article)


Show #062: Kammy's Kause 2009 Wrapup

By: Darrin Snider -- Friday, November 6, 2009
Okay, so let me explain what's going on in this one, since obviously, it's sort of a unique show and probably won't make any sense outside of its context.  This is the fifth of five segments recorded at Kammy's Kause '09.  The slot was origi... (Read Full Article)

Whatever Happened to Fridays and So Slow...

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, November 1, 2009
I pride myself on my diverse and tolerant musical tastes. Just last Thursday, I did my traditional "band hopping" night and caught a rock band, a jazz band, and a folk band all in the same evening, cleansing the palette on the trip in between b... (Read Full Article)


Show #061: Landon Keller

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, October 25, 2009
Our series of five shows from Kammy's Kause 2009 continues this week with a visit from Landon Keller.  This one was a bit of a surprise.  I had not actually heard of Landon before seeing the schedule for this year's show ... to say nothing... (Read Full Article)


Show #060: The Twin Cats

By: Darrin Snider -- Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Ahhh, festival season.  My favorite time of year -- Wunurth, Muncie Musicfest, The Battle of Birdy's, Oranje, Little Turtle, and my personal favorite (well, now that Circlefest is no more, yeah, THANKS Laura): Kammy's Kause.  Every year at the ... (Read Full Article)

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, September 27, 2009
Yeah, I'm not sure what I was drinking during this recording -- in fact, I don't remember drinking much at all until after we were done -- but there seems to be an unusually happy vibe about it compared to the last couple I've edited.  Possibly this... (Read Full Article)


Show #055: Lost Kauze

By: Darrin Snider -- Saturday, September 26, 2009
To say Lost Kauze is a band going through a "transitional phase" may be the understatement of the year.  I've had several bands go through lineup changes since appearing on the show, a couple have since broken up, and in a couple cases, I'... (Read Full Article)


Show #054: Jethro Easyfields

By: Darrin Snider -- Friday, September 11, 2009

Show #053: Smoke Ring

By: Darrin Snider -- Wednesday, September 9, 2009
This is the third of three shows recorded July 31 during round 1 of 8 Seconds Saloon's Rock Battle '09 (co-sponsored by Indy In-Tune). Two more bands that we, unfortunately, didn't have time to record that night will be on in future episodes (#056 with B... (Read Full Article)


Show #052: Outer Sanctum

By: Darrin Snider -- Saturday, September 5, 2009
Most people have no idea how much work goes in to preparing an episode of this show.  I suppose music engineer-types do, maybe wives and children of podcasters, and so forth, but not the average listener or band member, I'm pretty sure.  You... (Read Full Article)


Show #057: The Jeremy Vogt Band Returns

By: Darrin Snider -- Wednesday, September 2, 2009
When I go back in the archives and consider my top five favorite interviews over the last 50-some-odd that I've done, I'm always reminded of a brisk April night in the biergarten at the Rathskellar, late April, 2006.  Just to set the scene: it's aro... (Read Full Article)


Show #051: Civilian

By: Darrin Snider -- Monday, August 31, 2009
The cool thing about doing Indy In-Tune is that the mood and tone of the shows is as diverse as the music we feature.  Thus, after doing three somewhat serious singer-songwriter shows in a row, it's nice to have fun, crazy band-centric one that ju... (Read Full Article)


Show #050: Tim Spainhower

By: Darrin Snider -- Wednesday, August 12, 2009
This is one of "those" shows.  One where, seeing as how this podcast just (finally) turned 50, I decide not to go all out with a big fanfare, retrospective, or party, but one where I just pop out to my favorite watering hole, grab a coupl... (Read Full Article)


Crossroad Resonances In-Tune #000

Indy In-Tune is about to release it's fiftieth episode.  Fifty!  Though you're not supposed to make a big deal about these things by doing the obligatory clip show or whatever, I can't help but take just a little breather here.  Fifty!&nbs... (Read Full Article)


Show #049: Branch Gordon

By: Darrin Snider -- Wednesday, August 5, 2009
One thing I will say for the Indianapolis music scene, there certainly is a lot of it.  When I first looked into doing this podcast, I had done a little research and concluded that there were around 3700 bands in the Indianapolis area (both orig... (Read Full Article)


Show #048: Jeremiah Cosner and the Concrete Sailors

By: Darrin Snider -- Friday, July 31, 2009
It's the little things in life that make it all worth while, and in many ways, this show is a perfect example.  First off, there's the music -- a great set of songs from local singer/songwriter Jeremiah Cosner (now frontman of the Concrete Sailors).... (Read Full Article)


Show #047: Dutch Rudder

By: Darrin Snider -- Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Show #045: Active Live Infection

By: Darrin Snider -- Sunday, July 19, 2009

Show #044: Pres Maxson

Every once in a while you've just got to change it up.  One of the hardest things about doing this show, particularly when you're doing three and four shows a week as I was doing when this interview was recorded, is that you run the risk of los... (Read Full Article)


Show #043: Bring the Fiyah

By: Darrin Snider -- Friday, June 26, 2009
I love a bit of controversy.  I've actually had very little with this show over the years, and what I did have is normally from that vocal group of five or six listeners who hate it when I change anything, no matter how minute ... new layout on the ... (Read Full Article)


Show #042: Tonos Triad

By: Darrin Snider -- Monday, June 22, 2009
Even though I'm frequently a judge at such things, I have this love-hate relationship with the typical "Battle of the Bands" competition.  The one redeeming factor is that I get to see a lot of acts this way.  I've seen some comically... (Read Full Article)


Show #041: Fernhead

By: Darrin Snider -- Thursday, June 18, 2009
So we took a couple weeks off in there, but rest assured that we were not sitting around twiddling our thumbs and watching crappy VH1 countdowns during that time.  Quite the contrary, we managed to record seven new shows, which will be coming about ... (Read Full Article)

Show #036: Kurt Rambis

By: Darrin Snider -- Thursday, April 23, 2009
You know, you spend 20+ years in the music scene, you think you know how it is and what's going on, then some 20-something-year-old upstart kids essentially call you an old fart and show you an entire subculture that you were barely aware even existed.So... (Read Full Article)

Should I Be Flattered or Insulted

By: Darrin Snider -- Friday, August 4, 2006

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
