Who are the hosts of The Merry Andrews Show?
The hosts are three twenty-something friends who are passionate about music, and who don’t take themselves too seriously. Marc Karimi is the producer and engineer. Aly Carr is the creative director as well as an event coordinator and organizer of press relations. Ashley Renee works in artist relations and event coordinating.
What does a typical episode of The Merry Andrews Show consist of?
Half of our show is devoted to discussing a wide range of topics, and the other half of our show is dedicated to underground or independent music.
How did The Merry Andrews Show come to be?
The three of us have been close friends for a long time. During conversations we used to find ourselves saying “we should be recording this right now….” One Sunday, we actually did record it, and we have done so every Sunday since.
Why can’t I hear you on the radio?
We place a high value on having a direct and uncensored relationship with our listeners. Using the Internet gives us the freedom to nurture this value system.
“The Merry Andrews Show is equal parts comedy troupe and ’120 Minutes’–when MTV didn’t suck. Brilliant!” - Jeff Clark, Editor, Pop-Rock Candy Mountain
“You click play, you listen, and then you know… this is something different.” – Girl on Top Reviews
“The best part about the show is the fact that it’s obvious that these people actually care that much about the music they’re presenting to you. Overall, these are just fun people. Their website is a great place to hang around, due to the different types of content and media. The show is also a great resource if you’re looking to expand your musical horizons, and I think you’d be hard pressed to find somebody who didn’t like at least one song per episode.” - www.we-rate-stuff.com
“Eat your heart out, Daytrotter. A podcast/radio show in Ybor City, Florida has seen your 4 song EP ‘sessions’ and raised you an impromptu series of performances by some of the best indie bands on tour.” - Grooveshark
“Radio is dead. The people at The Merry Andrews Show are breathing life into music again.” - musician, Artur Dyjecinski
“Well, I love your website. The artists you guys have featured are the best. I really thought I was the only one in America who appreciated them. You all sound like an epidemic that needed to happen.” – listener, Sydney
Our hope is…
to provide exposure to undiscovered artists with exceptional talent.
We believe in…
the freedom of expression, the power of music, and the company of good friends.
The Merry Andrews Show is the equivalent of three friends sitting around the living room, talking, laughing, and listening to good music. We love what we love, not what people say we should love.
