Bryon Dudley got this opportunity because he won a contest, but now I've decided to open to anybody and anyone interested! If you would like to pick the music for an episode, feel free to send a list of 15-30 minutes worth of music by Iowa artists, of ANY genre or decade, to firstname.lastname@example.org. And if I can get permission from the artists, I will play your list on a future episode!
If you haven't heard of Bryon Dudley, then you probably aren't very involved in the central Iowa, or at least Ames, music scene, Byron, usually along with his wife Rachel, is, and has been in numerous bands here.
But besides being a talented and prolific musician, Byron runs the record label, Nova Labs. He also runs a recording studio, The Spacement. And if that's not enough, he is also one of the co-owners of The Iowa Music Store!
So I feel it is both appropriate and an honor to have Bryon as my first, but hopefully not last, guest producer on my podcast!
