Welcome!  Last week we re-visited 2017 with a few bonus tracks.  Today is Christmas Eve, and we’re celebrating with a brand new episode!  I hope all of you are having a wonderful Holiday Season!  Stay tuned every week as old episodes will be re-mixed and possibly contain new tracks!  And of course, brand new episodes will be coming down the pipe as well!

GIVE A HELPING PAW

As noted on the final track, I have been helping to raise money for a little boy named Tyler who is in desperate need of a service dog.  I even produced an a cappella concert to raise some of the money.  They are very close to their goal of $15,000 and only need about $3,000 to go.

If you find that you are in a position to make a donation, and would like to help Tyler, please visit the links below to learn more about his story and how you can help give Tyler the best gift of all this Christmas, a service dog that could help save his life.

4 Paws For Ability

You can learn about 4 Paws For Ability and Tyler’s story at http://4pawsforability.org /tyler-renfro

There are several ways to make a donation.

Send a check with Tyler’s name on the memo line to:

4 Paws For Ability In Honor Of Tyler Renfro 253 Dayton Ave. Xenia, OH. 45385

OR

You can donate to the Razoo Page.  Be aware that this platform will take a small percentage, but your donation will be received immediately.

AcaGeekz 2016 Holiday Special THROWBACK (feat. 2 Bonus Tracks)

AcaGeekz is available on Apple Podcast and Stitcher!  If you like what you hear, please leave a 5-star rating and review and help support the show!

Welcome!  AcaGeekz is back!

I got hit by a car last year and spent a lot of time recovering, and dealing with medical bills and just organizing my time appropriately.  AcaGeekz is the final piece of the puzzle, and I’m extremely excited to be back!

I will be alternating between re-releasing old episodes, often with a bonus track or two, and brand new episodes to make sure you get a constant flow of AcaGoodness in your earholes!  I’m remixing older episodes as well, including re-recording myself.  I’m blind, and don’t have a professional studio, but I want the best quality I can manage to showcase all the wonderful a cappella out there!

It’s my hope that AcaGeekz will introduce the casual listener and the hardcore a cappella fan alike to some groups and styles they’ve never heard before.  Whether it be Barbershop, collegiate, doo wop, high school, choral, jazz, funk, pop, rock, or classical, there’s something for everyone!

It’s time to give the tracks for this episode their due credit.  So here they are, the tracks for AcaGeekz 2016Holiday Special THROWBACK!

AcaGeekz 031 – “NaNoWriMo’”

AcaGeekz is now available on iTunes and Stitcher!  If you like what you hear, please write a review and help support the show!

Welcome!  It’s my hope that AcaGeekz will introduce the casual listener and the hardcore a cappella fan alike to some groups and styles they’ve never heard before.  Whether it be Barbershop, collegiate, doo wop, high school, choral, jazz, funk, pop, rock, or classical, there’s something for everyone!

This episode is to celebrate National Novel Writing Month.  In November, countless people try to write a 50,000 word novel in just 30 days.  To help inspire the aspiring writer, this half episode has a little fun with songs about words, writing, and books.

Visit www.nanowrimo.org to join the event!  You can utilize the resources on this site year-round!

If you are interested in writing, I highly recommend a podcast called Writing Excuses:Fifteen minutes long because you’re in a hurry, and we’re not that smart.  It features Brandon Sanderson, Dan Wells, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Howard Tayler.  Season 10 is a great jumping in point as throughout the season, they walk you through crafting a story from idea generation to submitting to Editors and Agents!

It’s time to give the tracks for this episode their due credit.  So here they are, the tracks for AcaGeekz “NaNoWriMo”!
