My real name is Charles Wood. I’ve been a community newspaper journalist for many years, but my biggest passion has always been music. I can never get enough of it. It’s like my life has a soundtrack. I can’t exactly remember when I came up with the nickname, “MusicMissionary,” but I have used it in various places on the Internet for several years.
I used to think it was silly, but I now understand it’s really not. I do feel like I’m on a mission. I love music deeply and when I find something wonderful, I can’t help spreading it to others.
That’s what I intend to do here. Check back from time to time and see what music is exciting me at the moment. My taste is EXTREMELY eclectic, so whatever you like, I will probably have something you will enjoy.
I will also use this space to publish interviews and give news and opinion on music and media issues.
Note: As a rule, I like to decide who I write about rather than taking requests, but from time to time I still get them. Rather than just deleting, I’ll let ’em stack up here. There’s a lot on my plate so I might not get around to checking you out, but it could happen, and if not maybe someone else will find you here.
