In episode 8 we start be exploring the use of sex in selling country music, specifically women. Are they being exploited or is it actually just playing into the hands of men?

From there we move to Facebook, Spotify & social media in general. Do the quantity of 'likes' or 'follows' matter or is it the quality? Do people follow or like based on an image, rather than the music?

As always we mange to talk about food and theres some chaos, lets be honest, it wouldn't be Charlotte and Simon if it were all sensible, would it?

We have been made aware of a number of concerns that people have raised about a couple of episodes and our opinions.

We thought we would take the opportunity in this (additional) episode to give our replies to those and also apologise for any offence caused in the past.

As is always the way, we manage to squeeze food and drink into the podcast!

This was recorded on Tuesday 23rd June and we recieved a review on Thursday evening/Friday morning which we also wanted to address, so there is additional content after the first ending jingle!

As always please contact us (directly!) via e-mail aintgoindownpodcast@gmail.com and we will respond to all comments.

Snorkers, Oatcakes and well, more than likely controversy!

Our journey continues as we talk about country music in the UK and discuss what's right, wrong and indifferent from our perspective.

In this episode we ask, is the country music scene in the UK taken seriously or seen as a cosy club? That's this week's question and we are sure it will raise a few eyebrows and undoubtedly create some difference of opinion.

We don't set out to upset or offend anyone, these are our thoughts and we, as always, welcome feedback! If you have something to say regarding anything spoken about in this episode please email (ONLY) aintgoindownpodcast@gmail.com and we will read every response out in the next episode/s.

In this weeks episode we cover all aspects of trying to make money as an independent artist and look at ways to cut costs of promotion and marketing. Not saying we actually managed this but we have a good talk around it! Specifically the need, or possibly lack of need for radio pluggers and what is the best way to promote your music, charts (iTunes) or streams (Spotify)?

Banana bread, dogging and marshmallows - Oh yes, country music too!

In this episode we discuss how important radio promotion and promotion of singles, EP's & albums is through social media platforms. We also discuss the importance of professionalism both in terms of the promo material, a scheduled and planned campaign and getting your music played on credible country music radio shows and/or stations.
