This is start of our new process for picking our Featured Artist each week.
The concept is simple. We are picking the first two bands/artists to go up against each other. Then you vote. Winner gets a 3 song block in the following week’s episode and goes up against a new band/artist.
Poll located on sidebar!
Week 1: Olio vs. Smileyfoot
So I have this idea to do a featured artist segment on the show. Whether it be a single son or a block of songs, I want to showcase individual artists & bands to help spread their music into the world.
I could just pick one of the bands working with me, but I want to have more fun with it than that. I am thinking each week, we do a battle of the bands that runs from Saturdays to Thursdays. Utilize an online poll and share a post with links to both songs. The highest voted song gets placement in that week’s featured artist segment.
We’ll run it all through TapDetroit.com here and the band/artist that wins, goes up against a new band/artist the next week. Which brings me to my next point, if you’re in an artists/band or you know/love one…Then by all means send them this way. I’d love to grow my library of music to share with the world. Have them email me at TheOddPodd@gmail.com
Welcome weary travelers, pull up a chair, stay awhile and listen…err read? I dunno man, it sounded all majestic and shit in my head.
Hi, I am Odd (insert canned audience saying NO SHIT) and I figured if I am making Tap Detroit my new home, I should carve out a space for myself. Enter “The Odd Zone”, which you already have and without permission too..That’s naught and we’ll have to do something about that.
For now though, an explanation of what to expect here…Ready? ANYTHING and I do mean literally anything. Blog posts, showcased topics or videos, pretty much an orgy hodge-podge of random weird things.
First let’s start with a proper introduction. Odd man of course is not my real name, but it’s as real a name as my real name. I started podcasting in ’07 and went a solid decade of doing things myself. I ran a network and several shows during that time. Hosted numerous live events and got to experience so many cool things and people.
I got married (for the 2nd time) and moved out of state for a couple years, lived in Kentucky and in Arizona and let me tell you…If you’re thinking of moving to AZ, don’t move to the mid or southern part of the state unless you like 1000 degree temps. I decided to move back home to Michigan to reboot during the pandemic, not just my show but my life and career choice as well.
I work for a production company who specializes in online mixed media shows, I am currently writing and doing production manager duties for an upcoming project. I am also a published writer, a graphic designer and I am helping with some of the website management duties here on Tap Detroit.
I have a beautiful wife and two furry “kids” to keep me busy, we’re both gamers and can often be found playing CoD with our friends. My wife’s job is pretty cool, but unfortunately I can’t talk about it due to the sensitive nature of what she does. I can say a love of true crime helps in what she does.
My show is like nothing you’ve really ever heard before, unless you’re an “Oddity” and have heard my previous shows. I take pride in the fact that, on my show you will laugh, cry and shake you’re head in disbelief at the stuff we talk about and find to share.
All in all, just consider me you’re friendly neighborhood radio DJ. So join me live every Friday Night at 8PM here on Tap Detroit.
On September 4th, at 8PM EST a phenomenon hits Tap Detroit and the world may never be the same again.
Hi, my name is Odd and I am a little bit of legend in certain circles. I have been a staple in Michigan online broadcasting since 2007. My shows are a circus act and an exercise in controlled chaos.
Music is my passion and I play a mix of what I like, what’s been requested and independent artists…Which by the way, I am always looking for more of. I believe in the independent spirit that courses through the diesel rich veins of Detroit, but I also extend that spirit to all parts of the country and the world.
I have traveled quite a bit across the US and lived in several different areas and the one thing that rang true, time and time again is that Detroit just hustles harder. My style of conducting myself and business can’t be matched thanks to an upbringing in the dirty mitten.
You’ll have to catch me live though, as the recordings won’t be hosted on TapDetroit, but we will be posting snippets to our YouTube channel until we establish our Patreon for full episodes and secret goodies.
This 1 was hard ain’t even gonna lie. Looking at the board you started on? Thinking of the laughs and jokes prior to a TNP show. All your encouragement to continue on after TNP. It was hard and just like I always did I fucked up right off the start. I went and edited it but just wasnt in the right mindset yet. We played your bands. Talked about you. Played bands you loved & got through the night together. So many what ifs man. What if I had said this or done this? I should have reacted out & seen where you were. How you were. But life distracts us from the people we care about. All I know is you touched SO MANY lives in such a short time that it blows my mind. So many cared about you. Its truly great to see the love & support for your family man.
Anyways, music played was Eva Under Fire,Volcano & The New Radio Standard,Battlecross,Shudder,6prongpaw & started off with Candlebox. Then we had to bust out new music from 1 of your bands Through Our Eyes!
Thanks for everybody that tuned in.
It wasn’t easy to do the show especially solo but Kelly would have busted my chops if I was like “Dude I ain’t doing a show man.” I know that.
You will not be forgotten sir!
Once again it’s time for my Annual Best of lists. I often get asked how I come up with the lists and what criteria I use to create them.
During the year I receive hundreds of records from each of the genres that I create lists for. There is so much amazing music floating around out there, there simply isn’t enough hours in the day to showcase it all. I try to cover as much as humanly possible but it’s simply not possible for me to get to everything or give each record as much time as I’d love to give them all.
All of these bands and a ton more like them can be heard on my radio show, Auditory Riot, which airs live here on TapDetroit.com or can be heard in podcast form in various places.Continue reading
We had our AWESOME interview with the entire band, Iron Kingdom which was very cool & a lot of laughs. Of course I screwed up and kept saying they were playing Saturday night but its actually Thursday 11-21-19 at The New Dodge Lounge in Hamtramack,MI. If your in the metro Detroit area and love Iron Maiden you gotta check these guys out! We also played music from Royal Bliss cause they were at The Machine Shop in Flint. We played New Day Revolution cause they had a gig as well. We also played some new music from a very cool band Mobile Deathcamp.
Anything I missed can be heard by clicking the player below.

Thanks to Jon Asher at Asher media for the awesome interview with a awesome band.
We palyed music from Central Michigan and/or Western Michigan bands. Then we had our conversation with Eric from WildStreet which was real awesome & we played their new tune “Tennessee Cocaine”. Killer tune!
Then we had our “Band you forgot you loved” which was none other then POISON!
Anything else I forgot to mention can be heard by clicking the player below or has been removed cause trust me you didn’t want to hear it. lol
