This WeSpin Recipes podcast episode features our conversation with D Grant Smith, a Growth Farmer (listen to the show to see what "growth farming" stands for), professionally coaching musicians and entrepreneurial businesses. He's been showcasing unsigned artists since 2003 as the Syndicated Host of The Appetizer Radio Show, and now released a book on radio promotion called "The DIY Musician's Radio Handbook".

In this show, D Grant talked on the role and influence of public radio, the ways (not) to pitch your music, building strong relationships with the industry contacts, the importance of having a great sound and knowing who you sound like, the questions to ask a publicist or a radio plugger you want to hire, and much more.
