Some of my favorite San Diego songwriters were voted into the Top 20 this month: Jason Mraz (at no. 3), Gregory Page (no. 4), and Amber Rubarth (no. 6). Gregory Page is a local San Diego treasure. In fact, I’m writing this newsletter today from Lestat’s coffee house where resides the “Gregory Page Stage”. He’s also a super prolific recording artist (I think I own 19 of his albums and I’m probably missing a few!) but that album All Make Believe might just be my favorite ~ sooooo many beautiful songs. You can sample or download it here at Bandcamp.com.
Live365.com, where Acoustic Pie Radio is hosted, gives me geographical stats of which cities and countries are tuning into Acoustic Pie. When I first started streaming Acoustic Pie Radio, the vast majority of listening hours took place in the San Diego area where I’m based. But nowadays the most Acoustic Pie listeners are, in order by listening hours, in: 1) San Francisco, 2) Los Angeles, 3) New York City, 4) Wheeling – Steubenville (Ohio) and 5) Boston. I really need to look up where Wheeling & Steubenville are… but thanks for listening!
56% of Acoustic Pie listeners are in the U.S. and 13% are tuning in from Canada. Next up, in much smaller doses are Spain, Germany, Brazil, the U.K., Israel and Australia. But people also drop in from over 60 other countries including the Czech Republic, United Arab Emirates, Luxembourg, China and Korea, just to name a few.
No matter where you’re listening, thanks for tuning in and for keeping in touch! I love to hear from you.
