Last Nights Damage Control - Bushwick Bill - Austin Folks - Horrible Turnout for Fund Drive - Um, Shit

Well last night was our second 2 hour show. The building was packed like hell with people getting angry that they couldn't get on. We just did not have the time. Bushwick Bill also showed up to show his support so we couldn't cut him off and you know he's got a lot to say. You'll enjoy that.

Mirage brought Young Nick, Arson Optics, Kaizan and DJ Tats up so we talke dto them and played some of their stuff. Always love to see folks from outside of Houston come through.

Anyway the show is below, I'm a bit salty. We only made $280 of our $1,000 goal. I don't know if it's because people are mad about the time change, or if they just don't care. I think most of our listeners couldn't give a fuck. They may want the 3 hours, but even after 3 years of doing Damage Control, they still don't understand what it takes to run a commercial free station. If we played commercials, we couldn't do Damage Control. At all. In any way. But no, we have no one breathing down our necks (they are controlling our time but not our content) and we play what we want. Raw, live, on the spot.

Anyway, I can't see KPFT really sticking their neck out for us when they are in a financial crisis and all we can bring in is $280. We could do a benefit show, butthat's a risk and a potential huge waste of time (believe me I have done it before and if I am gonna be out in the streets promoting like that, I gotta make some money). SO whatever, shit was kind of wack last night to a certain degree, but you'll like hearing Bushwick Bill.

wow. many ppl just seem to take advantage of the show. They just come up and get they songs played. At the same time, they can't invest money in the show. In fact, it would be investing money in their future as well. Without Damage Control, it would be so much harder for them/their songs to get attention.....

$280? even with Bill's 2?

Damn homie, I'm in and from FLA and I catch ya'll from the website, and i'm feelin like [i]I[/i] should be doin somethin to help ya'll out. And to be honest, I juuust started listenin to ya'll. I'm a long time Screw fan (still got some gray tapes)/Texas rap lovin nigga, and I feel like ya'll doin it how it should be done, and none of the boys that you be and been puttin on (WIT BIG MONEY NOW) ain't showin love like they should. I'm just sayin, me shootin ya'll some money is one answer, but I think your mouth piece would be more valuable to you in the end. Instead of reaching out to the listeners, reach out to the niggas thats gettin airplay from you under such a raw format. Or just let Clear Channel eventually consume and then destroy the one real thing going down. I'm just sayin though, don't let this recent drive discourage you. Keep your mind right, use your available resources (and you have many) and there will be a good chance of survival, despite the odds. Yell at you homeboy.

It's incredibly ironic how much love Matt shows these folks that come down to the station, some be all in his face on some "play my shit" type attitude, getting pissy cause he can't accomodate everyone and these so called hustlas and ballin' ass fools can't even drop some change in exchange for that love, especially during the stations time of need. Damage Control radio doesn't have to be that station that allows these cd-r kings to run up in the spot with str8 un-mastered boo-boo product and get it spun on the air, they COULD BE that station that is just like FUCK YOU-ADIOS, but of course that's just from this observers perspective. I know some fools show love and try to do what they can, but still, As much time as Mr. Sonzala spends biggin' up his truly beloved southern artist, it's a muthafuckin' shame that those that are showcased take advantage of the fact that he is a good dude simply trying to expose them to a broader audience. Their exposed alright Mr. S, as some cheap ass mo-fos. You got money for them throwbacks and forces, chains and cigarretes, but none for ya supporter/outlet? that's some DUMB SHIT!
