Allison (Rizk) Hare is a dame with a bionic ear for discovering emerging artists, has a knack for playing the triangle, and a penchant for live shows.

Since I blow all my extra ca$h into going to a ton of shows, Radiopotato.com was originally designed as a personal creative outlet. What it’s turned into is a way to actually do some good with it – like promote the artists I truly believe in and give a larger voice for the music to be heard. The real truth is that I lack any musical skill or talent but have always felt driven to be a vital part of the community. Some people call me musically obsessed. I call it pleasingly possessed. You can subscribe to RadioPotato via RSS Feed, become a Facebook Fan and follow on Twitter for more frequent music updates. Also, check out the other cool music site that I contributed my writing skillz to: The Silver Tongue. Thanks for reading! –Allison
