New Media Pioneer: Greg of Vent Vox

We are devoted to the art of complaining, comparing, and discussing stuff. Being idle observers is not enough. We believe that ranting, raving, and whining is a freedom that we should all have and use often. Attitude is not necessarily a bad thing, so gather up opinions- coherent or not- and let us hear them

Q: What are your favorite blogs/audio blogs featuring new music do you like to visit?

A: I enjoy Pitchfork, Each Note Secure, and Aquarium Drunkard.

Q: What inspired you to start the site?

A: I wanted to start to express my views on music as well as see the feedback that others could provide.  I’m now shocked to find that not everyone always agrees with my opinion.

Q: What do you think is the impact of blogs, internet radio, and podcasts on independent music?

A: I think blogs, Internet radio and podcsts help Independent music reach a broader audience than it previously reached.

Q: When you started your station, did you anticipate that blogs would have such an upscale trend as it does now?

A: I didn’t expect my blog to take off initially because of the vast number of like-minded thinkers.  I differentiate my blog a bit by discussing art and culture.

Q: What are the ultimate goals you wish to achieve through your site?

A: The ultimate goal for my site would to be a larger readership and the addition of more staff to contribute articles.  Making some money through ad sales would also be beneficial.
