Hello I'm Zan The Man. Many years ago I recorded some songs on a
stero reel to reel tape recorder, and the results were not that great.
When the old recorder broke I could't find anyone to work on it so I
quit recording and ultimately quit playing. I was a disc jockey during
this period of time playing music on the air and recording my own
music at home in secret. My recorded music was only shared with a
few close friends and family. Many years later when computers came
to the station I was working at, I was not happy about that. I didn't
know a thing about computers, and could care less. When I learned
how to use a wave editor I began to see all the advantages of digital
recording and editing, and how much easier it was. Over time national
radio shows and computer automation made me decide to get out of
radio. My live, on the air, radio show was in effect over. I guess I
still have the urge to put my voice out there so to speak. That may be
why I got my own computer with recording software so I could record
songs again. I've gone from putting commercials on the radio, to songs
on the internet. My songs were recorded back in 2007. When
these songs are gone I'll decide then whether to record more or
not. Thanks so much for the fans and support I've picked up
along the way.

All I have is one guitar. That is just a "band aid." If I had
any less, I wouldn't have a thing. I have next to nothing,
and that at least gives me a sound all my own.
I have played live. I like the recording and editing process more
than playing live. The recordings sound better than what I'm
able to do live.
If I say who my influences are that will type-cast my music. Its
best to just let it be what it is. When I up-load a song, I'm not
sure where to put it.
I use nero wave editor. It is very similar to cool edit, the program
I used at the last radio station I worked at. I record rythm between
verses, then go back and record lead on the other channel.
It is great to share my feelings in a song. Thanks to all of you
that gave me your "TIME" it is the most precious gift you can
give. Zan 8/8/09
