Indie Gospel's Top 20 songs and the Top 10 Videos are out for April. Please make sure you are following James Banfield to get the latest news on the song list. Tune in Fridays and Saturdays at 3 PM Eastern on Indie Gospel Radio to hear the Top 20 on air.
Thank You My Lord from the album Armor of God by Andrew Kwon was the top song for April. Nailz by Al Boyd took the top video spot with a catchy danceable song matched to energetic visuals.
Some upgrades were done this month that you should be aware of. We have added new widgets for the radio, including links to the playlist files for Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, Quicktime, and Winamp. Listen to our stream in your favourite media player, link to us, or embed our HTML5 or Flash player to your website.
Subscribed accounts have always had saleable files but now embeds of those files show a buy button and the title/icon links back to the detail page. An editor was added as well, allowing for creative control of the description. For example, this eBook In Defense of Contemporary Christian Music! sports a lengthy description with pictures and an embed with a buy button (bottom of page).
Also, physical merchandise now has a simple description for listings and shares, plus an infinitely editable detail page. For example, this physical CD has an embed of a video playlist and lyrics on its details page - Songs From A Sinner .
All sales categories including services are headed for similar upgrades. Then they will be integrated into Combined Sales . That's a new module which is not quite ready for release but will provide an outstanding solution for eCommerce. It allows one page to be promoted where all of your products and services are automatically listed under a customizable space.
We have a new show on the air which should get the hard rock fans excited. Everyone has different tastes in music and it's nice to be able to offer time slots for speciality shows. I hope to do the same with Holy Hip-Hop/Rap, as soon as time permits.
When all the kiddies and choirboys are tucked safely in their beds the heavy metal warriors of Christendom rise to do battle with the forces of evil - it's time for Righteous Rock Radio. Friday and Saturday midnight (12 Eastern) it's 2 hours of demon slaying rock.
Also, here is a little message I've been asked to pass along. Independent Artists Gospel Music Hour and Turning Up The Gospel With Lady T are taking submissions from Independent Gospel artists who are interested in having their music played. If that is you, please contact Lady T at email@example.com Submissions must be in mp3 format.
