Mark Maverick Retires

Live Remote

INDIE104 – iRADIO LA’s founder and General Manager retires after over 30 years in radio.  Maverick started in  radio in the United Kingdom as a technical assistant helping installing the transmitter and repeaters for Huntingdon based HCR radio.  Then applying his voice over skills became “The American Voice” for the Suffolk County area.  Doing several voice overs and characters for the Kalvin Taber Show Mark spread his wings when he came back to the United States.  He started hosting several television shows with his first show on The Nashville Network’s Fast Track To Fame.

Mark wanted to start a radio station to broadcast all of the artists they had through the television shows and as a record producer with Sonic records.  He was known to say “This Internet thing is going to be big one day” and started looking for ways to broadcast over the Internet, since there were no “Internet Radio Stations” yet.  He found a program that was made for video and used it to start streaming. iRADIO (Internet Radio/Independent Radio) was born.  Failing to trademark iRADIO, it was taken by another company.  So now known as iRADIO LA (Los Angeles).

Original Studio

Not only the first “radio station” streaming on the Internet, but also the first all independent station.  A few years went by and iRADIO LA partnered with Live 365.  iRADIO LA was one of the first original founders, growing from just a few listeners to thousands.  Maverick was receiving over 500 CD’s a week from artist wanting airplay.

iRADIO LA finally went terrestrial on 104.7 FM, then came INDIE104.7.  After two years transmitting on the FM dial Maverick did a survey on how many people actually listened to terrestrial radio and mp3 players etc.  He found that the majority of the people listened to their phones or mp3 players in their cars and a few listened to terrestrial radio but to talk shows or traffic reports.  So he decided to concentrate on the internet side and helped develop internet radio players.

On The Red Carpet in Hollywood

INDIE104 adn iRADIO LA was not only the first Internet radio station but the first all format radio station.  Continuing being the first, they were also the first to receive Internet radio station of the year 4 years in a row at the Hollywood Awards show and nominated several years after.

Mark built his own streaming servers and had the capabilities to stream to over 5 million listeners at a time.  INDIE104 and iRADIO LA grew to over 8 million total listeners worldwide.   Picking up a total of 23 shows over the years, the Colorado Wave with Carmen Allgood was the first syndicated show to air.  Carmen and Mark teamed together to do several shows together to include, “Indie Traffic Jam”, “Band Talk” with David Barber and “The Highest Self Healing Radio Show” with David Patterson.

At The Pala Casino

Some other shows that made high listenership counts was The Kevin Smith Show, In Your Face with Rob Ekno and the Steven Knight Show.

Mark did a weekly interview radio show with independent artists called “Mark Maverick In The Morning”.  This show was highly liked by the artists because it was not the typical interview.  There was lots of laughing, joking, stories and more as well as 4 of the artists songs played during the hour long show.  He will continue to do these interview shows but as a podcast only.

Over the years Maverick has met and befriended over 100,000 artists to include Chubby Checker, Ron Dante, Trini Lopez, Mick Jagger and Jerry Salas to name a few. Even though those names are well known there are thousands of the unknown artists that he met as well.  He enjoys judging talent and battle of the bands as well as a few karaoke contests.

Mark Maverick would like to thank everyone for helping making INDIE104 and iRADIO LA one of the largest Internet Radios Stations.

Featured Artist Tom Cunningham

Tom Cunningham, “The Most Interesting Man In The World” according to radio host Mark Maverick.

Tom was born December 12th, 1939 a normal little boy. In the Spring of 1947, He contracted Spinal Meningitis with a fever of 108 degrees. That would leave him three years physically behind the other children his age. It also left him with what is now called dyslexia or A.D.H.D.
This made school even harder, as being physically deficient set him up to being bullied by other kids. He started to hate the other children, and became a loner. He learned to accomplish things by himself. By the sixth grade he had become an accomplished oil painter, photographer, model airplane flier, and set a couple of kite flying records.
Tom’s dad grew tired of him being bullied, so he taught him how to box. This was to be the beginning of competitive sports in Tom’s life that would take him around the world.
After ten years of research, Dale Harden’s Strength & Speed Newsletter, picked Tom as one of the All Time Top Multi Sports Athletes.
All Tom’s life he have loved photography, and had been fortunate to win over 500 awards. He won the Tri Color Award at the Texas State Fair. One of the Highest Awards in Photography.
Due to age and injuries, Tom’s mind told him go, but his body said whoa! There became a big void in his life. As Tom began to try and fill that void, he discovered Music. Reaching the top of the music charts, and made new friends all over the world.
“I wait for Christ to Point Me Down The Next Road.” says Tom.

“Hailing from the Bluegrass with a sound as unique and smooth as the regions’ beloved bourbon, C2 & The Brothers Reed’s authenticity shines in their studio debut Weigh Station Tour.

After the independent release of their first EP “Hot Mess”, along with an extensive tour schedule (250+ shows in 2015-16) traveling mainly in the southern part of the country, they took to the studio less than a year later to cut their new record Weigh Station Tour. Split into sides, ‘Exit A’ ‘Exit B’, Weigh Station Tour explores gritty rock and roll Image result for C2 and the brothers reedwhile referencing 60’s and 70’s era soul music, embracing a style that is nearly lost but deeply needed in the surge of modern sound and technology.The band – singer/bassist Cameron Clark, guitarist Kelly Reed, drummer Kody Reed, and keyboardist James Weishar – hide behind nothing on their records, with a ‘realness’ that has been constantly attributed to their live performance.

Since forming in 2013, C2 & The Brothers Reed have made some notable appearances across the board with acts such as Stone Temple Pilots’ Scott Weiland, Moon Taxi, Eddie Money, Warrant, and jam bands The Werks and Dopapod. “Weigh Station Tour: Exit A” was released in January 2015 and the followup “Exit B” released summer of 2016.

Neon Alley A 3-piece neon blast of guitar-driven hard rock, Neon Alley stays true to David Vaccaro’s roots in the classic bands of the 70’s and 80’s all the while keeping one foot grounded firmly in today’s musical landscape. Like the neon alley’s of cities and towns across the country, some are bright and new, while others raw and gritty, you’ll find that Neon Alley’s debut CD is kind of the same. At times a little bit raw and gritty, like the CD opening track ‘That’s How It Is.’ While at other times, polished to a smooth glow, as in the semiballad ‘I Only Want To Be With You,’ yet never overproduced to sterilized perfection. It’s real.
“David carries a talent for carrying a tune, and there are plenty of those reverberating in hummable hard rock fashion.” Daniel Pavlica, “Full of guitar-driven modern classic rockers, this CD kicks off in fine style with the thunderous ‘That’s How It Is’…and an unexpectedly ballsy ‘Jailhouse Rock’. What a brilliant rendition these boys bring…” Exclusive Magazine “Delivers the kind of classic headbang that will speak for the generation throughout the generations….”
“Great melodies, good lyrics & good vocals. There are great hooks that catch you from the very first song… A great, fun album & highly recommended. 5 out of 5 stars…” musicgururadio “It is loud, it is brash, it is exactly what Classic Rock should be.” Simon Barrett, Blog Talk Radio “They write good songs performed from the heart…Gets blood from the 80s and 90s flowing through our veins…” Eric Schuurmans “Roll the windows down, crank this (album) up and cruise to your heart’s content.”

Today Mark Maverick will be talking live with Lisa all the way from France.  11:00PST right here on INDIE104 – iRADIO LA.

Jazz vocalist Lisa Lindsley Ignites the City of Lights with her second album “Long After Midnight”, a gorgeous and playful program of familiar and overlooked standards recorded in Paris

LisaHeadshot_2015Jazz vocalist Lisa Lindsley says that moving to Paris for a year was an idea proposed by her daughter, an aspiring high school contortionist who wanted to hone her French while studying at the Fratellini Circus School. Much to her daughter’s surprise, Lindsley put the plan in motion, and turned the adventure into the next step in her remarkable musical evolution. While her daughter decided return to the states after six months to tour with a circus in Vermont, Lindsley settled into the 19tharrondissement and quickly developed a network of regular gigs with skilled accompanists.

She documents these relationships on her second album, Long After Midnight, a gorgeous collection of sultry songs on her Take One Music label that’s available in Europe (and digitally) May 13, and in the USA June 10, 2016.   “When we set out for Paris I had no gigs in mind,” says Lindsley, a longtime resident of the San Francisco Bay Area. “I just went to all the open mics and I’d ask to sit in. The musicians were always really impressed I was an American singing the American Songbook. Afterwards I’d talk to the owner and that’s how I started getting gigs. Before long I found musicians I really enjoyed working with.”

Lindsley is no slouch at making a powerful first impression. A late blooming artist who came to jazz singing in mid-life, she earned national attention with her stellar 2010 debut release Everytime We Say Goodbye, an intimate session featuring bassist Fred Randolph and superlative accompanist George Mesterhazy (pianist for Shirley Horn and Paula West). She’s been working steadily around the Bay Area over the past decade, but when she and her daughter relocated to Paris in the fall of 2013 Lindsley put everything on hold, including her prolific career as a voice-over artist of considerable celebrity. As the voice of Princess Leia in LeapFrog’s Star Wars game and the characters Soraka and Kayle in Riot Games’ hugely popular online game League of Legends “I get fan mail and fans cry when they meet me,” Lindsley says.
