Chaz Mixon

Chaz Mixon was born in Baton Rouge and grew up in Amarillo.  From his earliest years he took a serious interest in music and the concert business.  It was commonplace to hear heavy tracks like Billion Dollar Babies and Aqualung blaring from the open windows of his parent’s house. After landing at the University of Texas, Arlington Chaz knew that his life was destined to be spent on the air.  He proceeded to do that for the next decade and a half on the biggest rock stations in Dallas.  Chaz loves sports (especially Dallas teams) and he’s a fan of shows like Breaking Bad, Fargo and Ray Donovan.  He’s got a busy family life with his wife Kathy and their two twenty-something sons: Josh and Jeremy.  Chaz still manages to find the time to get some practice in on his 12 string acoustic.  It’s his way of recharging after a spending the morning rocking out, telling stories and helping you get your day in gear.

For as long as I can remember, new music has been released on Tuesdays.  Well, there’s going to be a major change to the way new music is released starting this summer. The music industry has decided to streamline the process by making Friday the global release day for new records.

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPA) made the announcement after discussions with labels and musicians around the world. “Release days currently vary from one country to another, causing frustration for consumers when music fans in other parts of the world can access new releases before them,” they posted on their website. “As well as helping music fans, the move will benefit artists who want to harness social media to promote their new music. It also creates the opportunity to reignite excitement and a sense of occasion around the release of new music.”
