The network has over 13 individual programs that bands can have their material played on and all the FTM content will be supported via ClickCaster’s podcasting infrastructure.

“Podcasting has become the conduit for bands to get their material played to a large global audience and the purpose of the network is to expose people to as much new, independent and unsigned music as possible. ClickCaster provides a simple turn-key solution for the FTM to publish and manage our podcasts and bands are starting to see the potential of creating podcasts as a way to personally connect with fans.” Says Phil Coyne, President of the FTM Podcast Network.

In addition to promoting new material, individual artists will have their podsafe music made available for other ClickCaster subscribers to use in their podcasts as well as have the ability to create their own podcasts from their personal band page.

Members of the FTM receive discounted rates on podcast support services as well as advertising revenues from sponsorship ads placed across the FTM network.
