Can i help you? Can you help me start the show? And i’m like, sure, and so i showed him how to make, like, a clock, you know? So the u do you know, certain things that certain times and and and guest schedules and things and he’s using all that to this day, i’ve seen your many your files full of them? Absolutely dunaj job i do you and that wasn’t just a few years ago. That was actually your six years ago. Like almost to the day it was it was a was a very auspicious july day in two thousand ten, and we gotta ruth, chris steakhouse or some somewhere like that. I think it went great. Papaya, gray’s, papaya. We get a cheap, hot dog. No, it was in north korea was in care o in cary, north carolina. We did. We did to organize things that’s right? Would you, uh, why don’t you and scot chat a little bit? Because i got to get our periscope feed started. Dahna you know what? You know each other? He’s got a new album and she’s got a new website got talking about you have a new album tell us a little bit about your new new album. Sure, it’s called traveling companion on dh it’s going to be widely available next month. I’m gonna be going on tour, hitting some spots in pennsylvania, being lancaster and pittsburgh and my hometown of akron, ohio. Now we’re going to a cd release show here in the city on september twenty first rockwood music hall s oh yeah, traveling companions knew record i’m very, very excited for people to hear this the first single which i think we’re going to play later, is already out. You khun get that on band camp and get down on my website on scott at scott’s buy-in music dot com and yeah, i can’t wait for people to hear the whole thing that’s wonderful. So how long did it take you to complete this? This album we started recording back and january or february on dh. The initial plan was to knock it out in about two weeks and then slowed down a little bit and so down a little more, and what we found was, you know, what this we felt really strongly about this, this collection of songs, me and and the guys i’m working with, and we just felt like it’s worth it to take our time and get this thing right, and i’m just really glad that we did it. It was the right decision. So tell us about a couple of the other songs on the album. Um, well, i could tell you in general that i think the album touches on a number of themes, including, i think, sort of moving up and moving forward, you know, it’s a lot of recollections of things that i did maybe in my first years in new york as a twenty something and growing in to a thirty something who is now married and ah, homeowner and things that feel very adult and so that’s. So that’s, i think the theme of the record, we’re going to we’re going to a quick give away oh, great, you got the periscope feed going?

And i said neither, and she thought, well, then, i must be a doctor, you know? And then i had to explain that i know freshly musician, doctor, doctor, lawyer or doctor. Yeah, so here i am, him shoretz places. I don’t know if we need that is unimportant. No, we’re good without okay. Ah, yeah, so that’s, what the song is about.

See, um, did i interview a cab driver ever? Um, i think that’s fiction dahna it’s actually it’s close enough to be a fact. I’m sorry i came close. I interviewed that was, uh that was derek feldman, and he was in a cab at the lincoln tunnel when we started, which is not very close to here. That was a good ten twelve minute cab ride before he actually made it to the studio. That’s pretty far on. Guy tried to get him. I tried to get the cabby on the air, but he doesn’t have a sack guard, so he wasn’t allowed to do it right. He doesn’t sets a requirement here. No, it’s, because what? I understand, you’re all upset cards. This is i actually did this bonified you do? Your tough man after saying radio what’s your radio background, you been on washington? I worked.

Did i interview seth goat subpart a. Did i interview seth gordon? I don’t know, maybe did to tap dance, or or you interviewed him. I think you interviewed him. I didn’t do that interview. Seth gordon was on the show. In fact, it was our very first next-gen charity conference and was our very first remote first time we took non-profit radio remote, right? And seth cohen was one of the speakers, and it was here in the city, and i ran to an atm. I don’t member. Why? But i remember i went to an atm to get money. Yeah, why? I needed money. Why do i need money for the route as paying guests? Latto buy-in might i have a paper trail for my sag card? I guess. And when i left, seth gordon was available, so somebody else stepped in.

So i’ll be in texas in september. The lone star chapter, the lone star chapter. Sounds like worth and west. Okay, it sounds like three people are going to show up. No lone star chapter because texas is a huge state. You know, i have heard rumors to that effect. Yes. It’s enough. You know, texas is the number two populated state after california. Really bigger than new york. I know. On people in new york, uncommonly known scottie give us fact that’s a fact that’s that is, uh, that is fact. Yes. Texas is the second most populated state after after california. Really? Yeah. Very interesting. All right, nasco you’re from midwest, you’re from ohio. I am akron, ohio. Indeed. Ok. You’re following the convention at all. That was in cleveland. Yeah, it’s an extent, you know, little. Okay, it’s kind of not necessary on doesn’t really matter what side of the island you’re on. You wanted to see that the city of cleveland and the region come across well and i think they did. I think they did in this job. It was obviously it’s it’s always a challenge. And i think that they were think they were up to it. Ok? The fact they had a little championship parade a couple of weeks earlier. Sort of help them prepare so that’s right? See, i’m not i’m still celebrating. You are cavaliers nb a championship n ba that’s basketball that’s baseball that’s baseball, basketball basketball’s basketball. Okay n ba that’s not basketball associate baseball season what’s the national baseball association that’s and there’ll be a major league baseball and then there’s the national league in the mlb for major league baseball. Okay, i’m not a big sports story, ok, nfl, you know that is the nfl i’m gonna put you in charge in jail for assault folly in the nhl. What’s the nhl hucksters. No, okay, i’m putting you in jargon, jail for both. For nhl, nfl, they grew up in new york, unknown terms to me, you so sports plain country, xero i’m not even gonna that’s, ok, thank you. I’ve heard of the met because my dad, we grew up in the met, so i know i know that they cause i’m nets, they definitely do field goals. They’re very good field goal. They were very good. Ditigal now they have a good free throw percentage. Sametz sametz cool. Sorry, kar exist. We should take a break and what we got coming up, we’ll wrap the break will do a giveaway. We got another giveaway coming up and ah, jean takagi is going to be on the line very soon. We got more music. We got more non-profit fact or fiction. Stay with us. Oh, okay. Sam says that we shouldn’t take a break right now. Okay, that we should do something different. All right, so in that case, we got ill. D’oh. Oh, i know what i’ll do. Okay? We should we should say that we’re grateful to the sponsors and yeah, that’s. Right. Take a minute of your, uh, carol marrow. If you’d be into this pursuing pursuing to the sponsor now they do. If fund-raising software right for non-profits like, you know, they help you stay time against goal for fund-raising managed tasks like when’s. My next phone call to this group of donors. What’s. Um, next milestone i gotta make for being on task and on goal. That’s, the plan giving agency. I mean, you do marketing communication. We do marketing communication, so we would. When i lived with a client, i would i would rely on them. And i would say, what sort of software do you have? And they might say, you know, if i’m lucky, they’ll say they have pursuing for something well, let’s look at some of the information in there and try to, you know, target some specific donors or, you know, there’s all kinds of good information that’s in there, if you know how to use it, and i think that’s important is that for company, you know, for pursuing, i’m sure they offer great customer support and trainings and things like that so you could make the most of the software that’s really, exactly in the most it’s dule, you gotta have the data, and you gotta have the marketing communications to tell those stories, right? That aaron, the data. Okay, you have to have good data in a good way to organize it, and with pursuant that that’s what they could do and, you know, get the most out your pursuit software. Don’t just learn like, the first two things like, you know, learn it all. Yeah. And there are pursuing dot com and, uh, tell you what uh little differently when i told alex career but we’re gonna bring alex career on he’s on the line because our our new this is another cool already. I divulged it earlier, but another cool announcement that we have and there’s another one coming up later too, involves california that’s all like that’s. All i am permitted to say at this time about that cool announcement, but this school announcement is that we be spelling is a brand new sponsor of non-profit radio. We’ll be spelling and alex greer, ceo is on the line. Alex welcome. Thank you, tony. How you doing? We’re doing great. Welcome. Thank you for being a sponsor. Thank you for having me on. Congratulations on the three hundred show, it’s. Very tough. Cool. Now we we’d be. We’d be spelling these air. Not your grandmother’s spelling bees, right? They’re not your grandmother’s spelling bees. They’re not your elementary school spelling bees. We had no idea two a kind of nostalgia that we all have of spelling bees. But combine it with some stuff that we love to do when we go out in new york city. Like like music like comedy, music, dance, write music, dance around, meet up with some new friends. Have a couple of drinks and play a really silly game, okay? And we make money for charities at the same time. We sure did. Right? We have. Ah, great. Yeah, we have a great fund-raising platform. The idea here was to create a ticket price that young people could afford so that they could come and join these events. It’s not a five hundred dollars gala it’s usually a twenty five dollars ticket to come in, but then we turned all the spellers into peer-to-peer fundraisers. So essentially, if you were running a marathon or five pay for charity, these people will participate in this killing me, okay? They’ll reach out to their network and say, hey, and you and get up on stage and might embarrass myself, but i’m doing provoc oppcoll right. And so this makes perfect sense for the small and midsize non-profits that are non-profit radio listeners? Absolutely.
