For York County musicians and live music fans, Michael Males is something of a force of nature. The creative force behind Sunken Treasure Design, he’s put his energy and talent into the creation of MyRuralRadio.com – a grassroots community of musicians and fans that celebrates unsigned and independent talent. That song that you haven’t heard yet? It might just come to your ears through MyRuralRadio.
I caught up with Males a few weeks ago at the First Capital Dispensing Company in York, a corner bar that brings in some great local talent, and talked with him (well, listened mostly) about the origins of MyRuralRadio, the Fall Music Festival series and working with the Children’s Miracle Network. I think you’ll agree that Mike’s energy and enthusiasm is infectious. Thanks to the folks at Media Boomtown for capturing the conversation on film and their brilliant editing work.
