In our series Coastsider Musicians, your host Harry Ysselstein (AKA Harry the Y) interviews local musicians or others involved with music on the coastside. This series provides background information of some of the musicians that you see in the CoastViews Music calendar. You can find out what they have done, what they are doing and their plans for the future.
Episode Seven: Interview with Michelle Dragony
In this episode, Harry The “Y” interviews Coastsider Radio’s own Michelle Dragony. Michelle touches on how she got into the Coastsider music scene, despite not playing music herself. Among her many interests is the recent difficulty musicians face with licensing issues and monetizing their work. In creating Coastsider Radio (now Coastside Buzz) Michelle has made a resource that can help locals in many different ways. E.g. the Coastsider Calendar is a great resource for people who live in the area, and even those who don’t! And you can add to it yourself. Listen to hear how Michelle’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training relates to helping the coast in times of emergencies.
You can contact Michelle at [email protected] directly for any partnerships, ideas and feedback on Coastsider Radio.
