Cindy Rodeo Steedle Driven Livid on Temple of Rock 11/21 by RockRadio993 | Blog Talk Radio

Cindy Rodeo Steedle Driven Livid on Temple of Rock 11/21 by RockRadio993 Blog Talk Radio

Rodeo:

Cindy "Rodeo" Steedle rose to fame in 2007 as a contestant on VH1's "Rock of Love" captivating viewers with her steadfast attitude and her charming affection, and of course her laugh. Her appealing charisma landed further appearances on "Rock of Love" seasons 2 and 3, the number one hit VH1 series "I Love Money," and "Charm School" with Sharon Osborne. In 2010, Cindy was featured on the hit VH1 show "Rock of Love Girls, where are they now?" Off camera, Rodeo has used her notability to bring awareness to a cause close to her heart, Save the Horses. She continues to work as a personal trainer, fitness model, and spokeswomen for a fitness supplement company. She is also embarking on a new adventure to host her own show that inspires people, motivates healthy lifestyles and positive stories; and DIMI is working to make this show happen.


Driven Livid:

Resurrected from the ashes of a haunting and violent upbringing, New Orleans native & French Quarter musician Jason Scott Watson was sent out to face the world at an early age and has spent his life capturing the feel and vibe of his voodoo infested homeland of Louisiana and tied it together with his passion, anger and heightened awareness of the world and its infinite problems to bring you songs, sounds, and stories as raw as the long forgotten delta blues, and as powerful as southern metal royalty Pantera, ALICE n CHAINS, and Megadeth. Joined along the same road by writer, composition artist, and paranormal lead guitarist Dan Miranda, DRIVEN LIVID brings you their debut release“ZERO 2 HERO” that has taken a lifetime to make. A ‘collection of everything we all want to say and have felt in our darkest times and loudest outrages, be it about public and domestic violence and hypocrisy, the politically correct and racism, abandonment, world crises or government tyranny.

Sponsorships for the Temple of Rock

   Hey now! It's Thursday night and I'm just home relaxing; its been a long day and I've been trying to change the world one day at a time. It's hard trying to take from Peter to pay Paul kind of thing! The economy sucks right now and I know people are struggling - I'm included in that, trust me! Network - Network - Network! That is the name of the game. We all need to become creative to survive in this job marker. Jobs aren't so easy to find huh? If you lost one, then you know it's taking some of us months to locate one!

   I'm hoping to introduce some Sponsorships and Sponsors to my show, this will assist with that money crunch thing. I'll make some cash to take care of my obligations! If you are truly in my world or being nosy - like some of my ex's or bill collectors, then you know what I mean; for those who think entertainment is just fun all the time you're sadly mistaken. Its a lot of work to produce, compose, arrange or work in entertainment - Yes, the final product is great...wether you rock in front of a camera, you sing, dance or play in a band, its work! Don't forget producing a show on the radio is hard work too! Some way - somehow, we have to make a living! We have bills too! So, if you are following me for entertainment, or your just following me to see if I'm truly working. I've got news for you! Hell -Yes- I'm working two jobs my day job and this one! It may not be the amount of cash I need or want, but I'm trying to get the Man off my back, all I can do is keep trying!

  So, if you have a product or service and you're in need of getting the word out about something. Hit us up! We can provide you with some price points or rates to advertise your stuff. It's a win - win for both you and I! My goal is to help you push your stuff, and I get to pay some of my many obligations which will allow me to resume my life in peace again!

 So, help me out - advertise or have us produce a spot for you or you can hire us to rock your party!



Throw me a bone dude! You can do it, you know you want too!

Entertainment & Music

   Wow, its been a busy month; I've spoken with several artists this month! Its so surreal, yet so much fun! In a months time, things will change for me and for others in the industry. I truly seek to contribute where I can to push and promote great music. This can only happen with your help. You need to get the word out that the Temple of Rock is here on Blogtalkradio.com. 

   My goal on the Temple of Rock is to bring back that excitement we've once felt growing up listening to our iconic musical heroes. We all just wanted to be able to see and hear our favorite bands. I'd stay up late every night when I was a kid. I just wanted to listen to my favorite bands our attempt to play and instrument or dream I was going to become famous. I spent countless hours trying to master a new riff on my bass. These are the times I've treasured most, it was an innocent time in our lives, a life filled with laughter and joy. I had my fill of long hours being behind a drum kit trying to become famous the next Neil Peart.

   I remember laughing my ass off and gigging with my old band Criminal; I recall all the good times we all shared back in the 80s. Life has changed for so many of us, times are rough right now with the economy the way it is. Its important to escape from time to time; we all have to clear our minds from time to time to accomplish that place we all seek in our minds, that place called zen. I hope to call on and bring on new blood for the show. My goal is to pay tribute to those rockers who have paved the way throughout our years. My ultimate goal is to be a household name, while providing and producing a show which reeks of positive rock and roll vibes!

   We need to increase our numbers at shows and events. We need to support traveling musicians and entertainers who are working so hard to bring us great music and entertainment. Don't forget - before some of our favorite bands have become our iconic heroes; they were all once just a simpler local band! Let's not forget that, support your local bands. 

  I was able to hang out last night at the Canal Club in Richmond, VA. I was invited down to the club by Saint Diablo's front man! We had a great time, I witnessed Saint Diablo on stage, Cannibus Corpse, All Shall Perish, The Black Dahlia Murder and so much more!

Inner Changes

 Its been a lot of hard work to bring you the Temple of Rock; you can catch the show on Tuesday's and Thursday's on blogtalkradio.com/RockRadio993. We've really enjoyed the music and would really like  to break other bands in! As the Program Director for the show, I seek to provide great opportunities and support for new and established players.

I normally have seen teen aged attempts to impress impulse bands. We are so happy to push our new artists forward  - Our big push and efforts are forging forwarding to provide musical movement for those who I'd to take off. In order to expand the reach of each player. We believe that our issues with the major labels and lack of support in the A & R fields as a whole are a big problem. Should any musical selections be dropped on the Temple of Rock, you can rest assured that we will address it. We will continue to support our musicians and the community as a whole.

We also would like to find artists or musician's who are ready. I'm glad to mention that the TV show Front Row and Potomac Records are also ready to step a head to illuminate issues and celebrate music.We have to continue to network and to provide a positive environment, which would be a path to stardom. Its great to see youngsters and the young at heart trying to formulate a plan to motivate and conquer.What is needed now is for everyone to be part of a solution.

Music & Talent

I've always had a profound love of music. It moves the mind, the body and spirit. All of us have some level of musical movement within us. Our breathing, heart beat and overall existence is set to some musical pattern. Being a drummer has afforded me to feel magic on stages where no drug or beverage could ever take me. Not saying I've taken any! But, I can assure you music is a high, it can be such an emotional and magical experience; it inspires and elevates. For me drumming is the foundation of all musical structure, setting the pace, tempo and feel. Its just like the heart beat.

The Temple of Rock is that for me. A place in which a musician can set his or her sights on building a foundation in music. I'd like to extend an place to examine music, a place to break new bands, and just a forum to speak to issues from a true musicians perspective. If you are a fan of music, then I'd like for you to call in to our studio lines or get involved. Join the blog discussions, comment or support the blog or show! Your efforts can make the difference to bring great music to the masses.

If you know a great band or artist, please let me know!

Major Dan Pantaleo:

Actress: Jessica Cameron:


Mr. Charles Latimer for County Supervisor of Stafford County, Virginia:

Finding That Inner Voice To Help You Break Through

Well, we are off to a great start. The Temple of Rock is now established! It's been about 3 years since I've ridden the commercial radio bucking bronco; so I'm a little rusty, but, I'm only a couple of episodes in and we have room to improve! I'm very determined to polish the show to expose you to some great content and make an impact. I seek to present a wide array of guests and topics on my show. I'm back on radio and I'm excited and determined to have fun and to do things on my own terms.

Commerical radio has changed a bit, but it's the power of the web, great relationships and networks which will provide the true measure of what a person can do! Never say never, and never under estimate the power of honest dealings with people. Money can buy all the fancy equiptment and gadgets in life; but it's the power of relationships and grass root efforts which moves mountains. I feel a belief in one self can truly propel a person forward to the next level. I've struggled in life a bit - But, I will not let my struggles define me. It's hard to step up sometimes when others attempt to block your path; don't let the negative undermine your truth growth. Never give up! If you believe in something with your whole heart seek it out. If you have a passion or a vision - believe in it and don't stop. My goal is not only to empower myself, but to also motivate others. Things aren't always what they seem. Really try to open your mind and eyes to great opportunities, things or people. Really reach your true self and figure out the truth within your own understanding. Let's continue to converse and support people. The good will always prevail! God bless.

 Life has always been so demanding! It can be a battle to just achieve the most simplistic things in life. Its so cool to have music as our musical back drop or sound track. I find my inspiration in music. It can set he mood and set most complicated situations on its head. When things get rough, we can all run away to another place in order to escape our inner pain or hurt. We can always tear down fearful situations or restore are inner strength. I can always count on my favorite artist to pick me up!

When you feel a strong love, you can always find that inspirational sound track to transcend all boundaries. We seek to be one in mind, one body and one spirit. Music helps us all to cope, to comprehend and sometimes to trascend and understand the human condition. Many just listen and can feel the power of this beautiful art form. But, if you are lucky enough to play an instrument, that is another level altogether.

Keep Rocking & Keep Listening.

Not Thrilling But Nice!

 It's so funny to be able to connect with old friends! I'm talking about one crazy guy in particular. This guy was an old friend of mine from my radio station days at 93.3 WFLS. If you tuned into the "Drive Home Thing" you'd know to whom I'd be referring too; yes its Mr. Mike Vincent, a great radio talent and great friend.

I had the pleasure of speaking with him a bit ago and had to laugh at some our antics. I'd forgotten about the morning he overslept. You see,  this fact is important in the larger scheme of things. You see, Mike was filling in for Brian Strobel who was our Morning Drive DJ, Brian held this spot for many years (Since Jesus was a little boy).

Anyway, Brian was on vacation, so Mike took over the duties for that week. You can imagie having to fill Brian's shoes for a week as the Morning Show Talent. Wel here comes the funny part; Mr. Mike Vincent was about 90 minutes away and had overslept. Now the reason he overslept is not your business - But, I can tell you he's a guy, so I'll leave it at that!

I was on the Air and needed to make the hand off; now picture this - I've been on the air all night long. I was tired and wanted to go home. Now I get the call!!! He is running late...I'm laughing my ass off. You know why? I'm the new kid on the block. I get to run the Morning Show. Hot damn!! I perked up quick brother & sisters, LMAO ...Here I am the new guy on a 50,000 Watt station running the Morning show it was priceless.

Now imagine this - I'm on the air and these are the words I mutter:

This is the "Country Kickin Puerto Rican, Robbie Rodriguez" - In for Mike Vincent - Who is Supposed to be in for Brian Strobel...I was dying of laughter...At that moment, I look over to our news room as Mrs. Penny Wack is laughing as well. I was loving it...In the meantime our Program Director Mr. Jon Reid was calling in to the studio to find out where in the hell Mike was!! It was so funny! This is why I love what I do!

Temple of Rock

      My new radio show promises to be filled with crazy fun guests, skits, prank calls and music. Come one come all - Spend time in the Pit!  I'm looking forward to discussing all things rock with you. We can talk about drumming or vocals and everything in between. I've played about five instruments since elementary school, so its in the blood. I've always had a true love of music and the process of putting what is felt down on paper. This is a true passion and I want to share that with you.

      Spread the word, if you'd like to stop in and chat or just kick back and listen, please do. It's all about Rock, Metal, Progressive Rock, Alternative, and anything else I can throw in. Hang out with the Temple of Rock with your Host & Rock Drummer Robbie Rodriguez on Blogtalkradio.com/RockRadio993.
