This week on the podcast, I am continuing to explore the meaning and the effort behind the term "Influencer" and the folks that identify themselves online as being such. This is the second of 2 back to back chats with people who use Internet Marketing and Brand Influencing as their revenue source and how they structure their daily lives. This week, it's all about Glenda Decasa, from Edmonton Alberta Canada and she is discussing how she turned her passion for blogging and marketing into a career, how she sustains it, to teaching others and how working with local brands and businesses is important to her and being a part of her community. This is Glenda's story.

It's a solo show this week and I am making the most of it by getting around to something I haven't done yet but always wanted to - receive and answer questions submitted to me by fans and listeners of my 80s hard rock and metal weekly music and talk show, ParaVice City. It airs every Saturday night on my Nobodies Radio Station: Heavy Rock Radio at 9PM EST (replays at 12am EST Sunday morning, as well as Wednesdays at 7pm & 11pm EST). We play 80s artist's music that is NOT the same tired replays on regular or even Satellite Radio stations and dig deeper into bands that didn't have big hits but have great music that stands the test of time! If you love 80s rock with a twist of newer bands with that classic sound, get you some of our show with my co-host Kevin Matthews. More about the show here:

Myself, Chad Vice, am joined by my 80s rock and talk show ParaVice City co-host Kevin Matthews as we talk about music, the state of music in the world today with all the looming health concerns, and argue over bands charging money for concerts when they aren't always really performing 'LIVE'. We are just two bald dudes with attitudes who just love to geek out on music! And of course, we talk about our beloved radio show that we host every week (Saturday Nights at 9PM EST) on Nobodies Radio Station: Heavy Rock Radio. Shameless self promotion - why not?

Alcoholics Anonymous has helped this Sober Coach stay on the right track and he is happy to point out how much it has helped strengthen his own life and rebuild important relationships. He speaks very candidly about his life before and after finding sobriety, his family dynamics and what keeps him happy being thankful for each new day. Hear his story now and be sure to have a look at his blog which boasts an amazingly inspiration title!

This week I had the pleasure to speak with veteran keyboardist Eric Ragno, and hear all about his experiences playing with some of the biggest names in the music genre I love, good ol' 80s rock, and hear about what got him into music and how coming down to LA in the 90s was the right career move after everyone left the scene for dead. A bit about Eric from his bio so you know what's up:


Eric Ragno is a keyboard player based in Los Angeles. Known in rock circles as the “go-to guy”, he has appeared on dozens of rock albums, performing on tracks with Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley (Kiss), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) and many others. He has performed across the U.S. and around the world with Graham Bonnet (Rainbow), Dawn Robinson (En Vogue), Jimi Jamison (Survivor), The Babys and more. Eric is currently on tour with London, the Original Sunset Strip Players.
