The Odd Zone
Collection of all of Odd Man’s updates, thoughts and blogs.
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.
