iMTV Moose TV looking for out of LOCKDOWN

So the world is now different, and all things have changed in the vanguard of onset of the corona virus, The Independent music community has been  devastated amidst the fear and worry, we are all suffering. I have used the time to get busy trying. IE to take cancelled shows online for folks who are self-Is to realise my dream of a Community Fund Sharing TV Station to try and recover lost revenue and help maintain promoters, festivals and crew as we do, .

Dear friends and helpers.
Those that know me know it has long been my dream to offer a Independent musician fund sharing Community TV Station and Live Stream Platform, well now thanks to a partnership with our friends at The Scottish Unsigned Band List we are a huge step closer, I need some help though to cross the final hurdle, hence this post COMING SOON – with your help on www.thesublist.co.uk - click to be a founder member and to read a full mission statement.

iMTV – international Moose TV is joining forces with www.thesublist.co.uk to introduce a Community Fund Sharing Live Stream Platform. Our express and initial goal to help emancipate independent artists from facebook live stream slavery, create a vital revenue stream and replace gigs online from here in Scotland. Its a cool site, at the very least it will help independent artists profile and sales here in Scotland

Please consider joining us at www.thesublist.co.uk to be a founder member with all advantages and benefits.

The good news is instead of the estimated £20,000 when I set out to try achieve this 4 years ago, for software development and web building, all we need now £500 for a special all singing all dancing plugin for this already wonderful facility, such has the technology advanced.

So I’m putting all Medicine Music sales and donations to that end until we achieve it and starting a funding drive today, would you kindly help by sharing this update, any facebook and twitter messages on the subject. If your an artists or music professional www.thesublist.co.uk membership will help your Scottish Profile at the very least, but i predict with all your help and that of all the people Ive met on the through Music this thing will soon go global - mark my words..

With yours and everyone else's help i intend to have this site jumping and with a little help it will soon be a one stop independent music shop and broadcast space to provide a much needed additional revenue stream, we intend to replace independent artist's paid gigs + sell their cds and merch cheaper than any other outlet . So please follow the link http://www.thesublist.co.uk/for the mission statement if interested.

Please do consider a donation if you wish to help further, the idea is for the first few weeks we will test the system free, then once everyone is happy we will all be able to invite all our friends fans and family to subscribe through all artists and music business pages for £5 for the rest of the year then the artists get a much needed 3/4 of that and we use our 1/4 to further develop iMTV into a community TV station, after that artists can make their feeds free by donation or charge what they like for their show and we for our part will emphasise these are replacement gigs and not just a facebook give away to all the membership, on our members broadcast as admin and promote vigorously to all our social media outlets, we will also share all our broadcasts to all our social media members and mailing lists some 30,000 potential viewers and customers .

It is my goal for iMTV to one day be a community TV station featuring multi camera live shows, self commissioned documentaries, special features on members and news stories on our releases etc etc our goal is to eventually broadcast into everyone's front rooms on Terrestrial TV, this is the first very important step and artists on joining will be a founder member with all advantages and privileges with an opportunity to become Patron Members if they to make a donation and/or attract 100 subscribers, this will give free advertising on site and free Medicine Show Promo gold star digital and social media promotion for the artists next release.

So do please let any artist friends know we are this close to launching the iMTV Community Fund Sharing Live Feed Platform and please consider helping us over this last hurdle, we have already attracted over 30 artists to become and 3 patron artists who have also offered exclusive content, Film Maker Musician Rancher "Randy Houston" who is currently working with us on a Film Documentary exploration of The Scottish Highland Drovers of the 18th Century and how after being cleared in favour of Sheep, how they contributed to the great cattle drives of The Wild West, New York Highlands phenom "The Slambovian Circus Of Dreams" and "David Starr" have contributed as well, all have new exciting projects coming in 2021 that we will be getting behind across our entire network and at Sublistscotland.

I do hope you find this as exciting as yours truly, and along with us see the potential to really help our beleaguered industry, I further hope this finds you well and doing as well as can be expected in these testing times and you can again with my gratitude help me help the music we love.

You are duly invited to this new adventure, my sincere hope is it benefits all of us and does emancipate us all from Facebook-live slavery

I look forward to your thoughts
Rob Ellen


“And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.
"And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
"And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed."
~Kitty O'Meara

Get us North please, the game is afoot.

The adventure continues thank you all!

There are 3 ways,

1. A straight donation here of whatever you can afford with my gratitude
2. any download song or album at www.medicineshowrecords.me and pay what you like, share and invite others to do the same. Again with my gratitude but also with the gratitude of the contributing artist, I’m so very proud ofall of them it is our hope to further feature every artists in iMTV at the Sublist in the future and atract even more to the Medicine Show.
3. And this is where you can maybe really help an artist of your choice through all we do on the Moose and with The Medicine Show, for £150 you can nominate your favourite artist for a place on on a forthcoming collection” and become an artist sponsor, 60 of these will go out to our Moose hip euro radio media family, and 500 more cd’s and 500 more download cards will be distributed around Community Festivals Community Venues Community Radio Stations and house concerts as we get back to travelling across England Scotland Ireland Wales France and indeed Canada hopefully next year. You will not only be supporting your favourite artist but also The Medicine Show in our quest to support the whole Independent Music Scene on the road and via live streaming.


So it's imperative that I get both Moose road worthy ready for the ongoing work. This really does need an influx of capital and im currently looking for a moose sponsor and Patrons, if you would be interested or know anyone who would like to take their brand to a worldwide music sensitive audience I am all ears if you would like to be a monthly patron please do consider joining us here (and again thanks to all those who do this really helps no end)

We are doing this on a wing and a prayer, we now know the potential for good work that can be done, the Moose feels like a state of mind, with the potential to be a movement. So we would like to reach our potential, the $500 a month goal of this campaign would propel us into new possibilities together and get us a good way to being free to do that!!.

here is more back ground 
It's now 4 years since we source the Merican Moose Mobile (hoorah), paid for it and made it roadworthy by your kind donation, Very fair to say we got a good un (lucky us).

The Merican Moose has now travelled 60,000 mile and visited 24 states of the union, 4 Canadian provinces and The Navajo Nation, visited and filmed countless Community Festivals, Venues, House Concerts, Radio Shows, National monument and iconic musical heritage sights and collected an impressive catalogue of sessions, concerts and interviews with Independent Artist at every turn of the way.  And is being readied in Canada for our attempt to Travers from Vancouver Island to Prince Edward Island in Spring 2020

The concept does work and the magic follows the Moose and the Moose follows the magic, the Moose is a state of mind and is becoming a movement (Moosement even) We want to keep it going.

The go fund me appeal has stalled short of the £10k we are shooting for, however, I always said we would do this thing with the resources we get and take it for as long as we could. So in that spirit with the knowledge we have garnered this year, we are changing tact slightly.

We need less money but we need it more regularly. We very nearly got washed up empty a couple of times along this last trail. So please consider being a Patron of the Medicine Show! IE Help me help the music we love! by chipping in as little as $2 a month, 250 folks doing that will keep the wheels of the medicine show turning IE The House Concert Hub, Flyinshoes Review, Riding Point Radio Show as well and The Euro & The Merican Moose Mobiles, it's important that these funds come in soon as both vehicles are in need of maintenance and we have a full 2019 scheduled coming together https://patreon.com/moosemobile

This should be achievable as some of the videos we shoot receive thousands of views now and we are picking up many many return followers every time the Moose Lands somewhere else.

Please view the appeal video attached, also we have posted many more independent artist interviews and sessions and have tethered our entire social media together into a live feeds network from the Moose pages at www.medicineshowontheroad.co.uk  

Please follow the Moose and invite your friends too, because the more that do the more will view.


Please do feel free to check those out and share share share. Thanks, let hope and build for a better 2021.
You'rs ever fraternally in music.



Many will know I live on the road in an internet broadcasting & recording studio converted Camper Van (The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile) which supports the House Concert and listening room scene here in Europe and reports back you our supporters and broadcasts on the road through social media on a daily basis.

Here is my idea! I wish to do the same in Canada and America this year, to that end we need a Merican Moose Mobile. Hope you feel you can support this idea with hard to come by hard cash. Please read on it should benefit us all

For the last 10 years I have been travelling across Europe cultivating and connecting House Concerts and listening room Acoustic venues, seeking out recording and broadcasting new independently-minded musicians. My travels have taken me from Scotland (my home) to Ireland, England, Wales, France, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Italy, Greece & Germany (so far). In that time and on all these journeys I have introduced our Family Fold of mainly American musicians to Radio, Festivals Promoters & Hosts here in Europe.
