Your Dreams Matter, YDM Network – Who and What They Are

YDM Network, Your Dreams Matter!

Last Sunday, I was interviewed by LauraLMe and Eric a.k.a. EDubb on YDM Network.  It was a great experience and an honor and a privilege to interview with them.  YDM Network is a great team with fantastic shows; furthermore, the best part is their motto: Your Dreams Matter!   When I told friends and family I was being interviewed by YDM Network they asked,  “What is this radio show?”

Currently, there are four shows running on this network that leads to varied indie interests, artists and their dreams. Sunday’s show is a strong indication of the variety of their guests.  During the first twenty minutes Laura, Chris, and I discussed Indie It Press, Early Out, and I read an excerpt of my book. After that we discussed gay rights activism and my family.  Directly after me was Matthew Faerber Coordinator of the VisLab NC Museum of Natural Sciences.  He discussed science that was WAY over my head.  (Laura even mentioned after Matthew’s interview that she took notes in order to study up on what he was discussing.) Matthew also discussed kids and the importance of engaging them in the sciences.  After that, Andres Jaramillo, the Co-founder of ARwerks discussed his new app that is “augmented reality”. This augmented reality allows anyone with a Droid or iPhone to be involved and engaged in life instantly, to anywhere from anywhere.  Andres is working with the Heisman Trophy Award to utilize his ARwerks APP.  Most of my guy friends will go APE NUTS over this!  To top it off, the listener got to hear LauraLME’s Verses In Motion poetry and music during the start and end of the show.

A week prior to my interview, I spoke to LauraLME on the phone (Italy meets Montana), when I asked her to tell me more about YDM and the shows they produce.  We chatted for quite sometime about their vision and that dreams matter, especially in the younger generations.  We must encourage their forward vision and thoughts to help them become a reality. She sent me some fantastic information about the creation of YDM, who is involved, and their four different shows.

This is the scoop indie lovers, the details of who and what YDM NETWORK’S show is about.  I want to give A special shout out to LauraLME for providing me with all of this great information and THANKS for having me on the show!

YDM Network, formerly known as GetYourz Radio, was born recently as the result of a father & son conversation about how important it is to pursue one’s dreams and how wonderful it is to help others pursue theirs, especially young people. Dreams matter because they are the essence of our creativity, the thoughts of imaginative plans and the beautiful expression of our talent.

“Music plays a big part in our life, it is a universal language understood all over the world, of course, you have art, dance and many other forms of expression but for me music inspires all creativity. Personally Hip Hop has been very big in my life and Mecca Muzik will show that! MM is not just about Hip Hop, it’s about uniting and accomplishing things through a common ground. Mecca means a place that attracts people of a particular group or with a particular interest: Mecca Muzik is that place hope to see you around!”
