Humble Beginnings

LT studio

Begun in 2013 in an effort to expose original independent music to a broad audience, the Real Time Music Network started out by offering a weekly internet radio call-in talk show.  We had a number of regular segments on the program, and usually had a feature segment of a musical artist as in-studio or call-in guest.

Host R. Lee Townsend started on-air, joined by producer, later on co-host, Bev Bonadio.  Because of the chemistry between R. Lee and Bev, listeners were treated to some great rapport, a la Burns & Allen.


In late 2015 Bev gave way to regular feature reporter and the godfather of Baltimore punk music, Stepoe T. Magnificent, who resumed co-host duties. 

After a time archived episodes were made available on our website, and as podcasts on iTunes.

From there we grew into offering playlists of our featured original music 24x7 streamed on our website and available on iTunes Radio. We amassed a global audience and rapidly garnered listeners from all over the planet.
