Why are all the best bands not on the radio?

Sitting in the Hilton hotel in Midland, Texas, this week we discovered two of the best bands I have heard in a very long time.  After buying their albums, it struck me that much of the music was better than anything I’ve heard on the radio in some time.   Why is there still so much undiscovered talent in the world while so much garbage in the mainstream?

The conclusion we made is that so much of popularity is about marketing and so much about marketing is knowing the right people that can make things happen.  Inevitably this is the deciding factor on who makes it and who doesn’t.  Still what a fantastic life to tour the country doing what you love regardless of fame or fortune.  Make these guys a little richer by visiting their sites and listening to their music, you won’t be disappointed.
