RUNDGREN RADIO LAUNCHES CROWDSOURCING CAMPAIGN!
We want to help Michele Rundgren get an aquarium bar for her
restaurant Tiki Iniki (opening in late March in Kauai,
What's so important about getting this aquarium bar that
made RR want to get involved? We can answer that question for you - - - if
Michele gets this aquarium bar it will likely be featured on the National
Geographic show, FISH TANK KINGS! Getting that much TV time would be huge for
her restaurant and Todd would be on the show as well perhaps even performing
some of his wonderful music.
Crowdsourcing is a new popular
way to get groups of people to pitch in to help others reach their goals.
Crowdsourcing is different than collecting donations because the people that
participate get something in return. Kickstarter.com is the most popular site
for crowdsourcing if you want to see what it's all about. We created our own
website for this project to keep from having to pay the fees associated with
using a site like Kickstarter.
Let us reiterate, people that participate
get something in return. This is not a charity or a donation type thing
- it's your chance to buy something unique you might be interested in and
helping Michele get the aquarium in the process. If you don't like any of the
items for sale then you don't have to buy anything of course - like any store
it's free to look around. We put together a team of fans to get some ideas of
things people might want and that's how most of the items were created. Michele
also pitched in some ideas after accepting our request to let us try this
Michele played an integral part of getting
Rundgren Radio off the ground and without her we never would have made it. This
crowdsourcing deal is was something we wanted to do to give something back to
Michele. We hope you like some of the items being offered.
We also shared more details
on a RundgrenRadio.com show last night and Michele was our special guest. We
discussed some other topics and received a surprise call from Lion Keezer, the
creator of the first ever multi-camera concert video created and published on
the internet that was entirely shot by the audience. The video we are talking
about happens to be the Todd Rundgren and the Metropole Orchestra concert from
2011. He has now uploaded the recent 2012 concert featuring Todd and the
Metropole Orchestra. The links were provided during the RR show or you can find
them with a quick search on youtube.com.
Here's the link for last night's
RR show archive ...
New album out on April 9th of this year! The album will be titled, "State".
Professor Todd Rundgren will be an "Artist In Residency" at Columbia College
in Chicago in April. The residency will finish with a performance by Todd.
Ticket information for the concert won't be available until 3/18/13. If you're
are interested, keep an eye on these pages ...
Todd & Ethel have two more shows booked together. April 2 in Evanston,
IL and April 6 in Park City, Utah. The shows start with a set from Ethel,
followed by a Todd solo set, and then the they all perform together. We highly
recommend attending one of these shows if you can make it. For more details
