sometimes the hook is just one word

forward or backwards. Sometimes he drops the chorus! (but the chorus works as a focal point)

What singles have not appeared on albums?

most stuff makes it on an album

expensive to record in a studio

raising the money ahead of time works!

Producer in Portland

most of the time, songs are timely

What app? Use the camera app and put it on YouTube

soundcloud started ad-supported free accounts (you get part of the revenue)

bandcamp api doesn’t pay for streaming

Rovics is in 1% of album sales!

What do you think of Bernie Sanders?

exploratory campaign!

transportation cost is daunting!

Sanders may be better speaker than Dennis_Kucinich
