I’m Daniel J. Harris aka Soupy Gato and I host the show.
French Horn was my instrument for most all of my schooling career and then I moved on to bass. (French Horn players don’t get many chicks, but then neither did I playing bass.)
Though it didn’t last long I had a period of time that I played six nights a week. Getting sick of the bars, I played in pit for musicals…
So my tastes in music have been varied most of my life.
And, for years, I wanted a radio station that would play all kinds of music. Hearing nothing like that, I chose to do it myself.
The SGS is a podcast—you can download or stream it anytime you like—you don’t need to sit by your radio and wait…
I do the show Sundays and put up a new show each week (usually Tuesday night around midnight). Music comes in from all over the world and all styles are welcome and wanted. I try to make each show as different as possible.

You know that feeling you get when you’re not generating the leads you want from your marketing?
Or the frustration of knowing you should be marketing more — but don’t know what to write or where to focus your efforts?
Since October 2001, I’ve been writing marketing materials that give entrepreneurs and executives — in 120+ industries — an alternative to the typical corporate nonsense that makes most outreach efforts useless.
From website content and direct mail to special reports and email campaigns, I show you how simply changing your perspective on prospects can help position you as an industry authority, deliver higher returns on your marketing investments and allow you to reach larger audiences with less effort.
The fact is, your prospects are more informed now than at any time in history. Easy accessibility to information has shifted the power away from anyone pitching products or services.
To see success with your marketing these days, you must deliver extreme value to even have a chance at capturing interest and closing clients.
Need a few ideas on where to start?

Dr. Lars Dingman, World Renowned Top 10 “iTunes Psychic,” can foretell a subject’s future simply by knowing the LAST THREE SONGS RANDOMLY PLAYED by the person’s digital music player.
Dr. Dingman has performed his insightful, intentionally humorous, shows at Universities and Institutes around world, and broadcast his popular podcast from iconic clubs including; The Improv, The Laugh Factory, Upright Citizen’s Brigade and The Comedy Shrine.
Using previously unknown psychic methods – purportedly gleaned from Tesla’s ‘lost’ personal journals – Dr. Dingman is able to decipher the sentient UNIVERSE’s advice for each of his subjects, merely by interpreting the meanings of the last three song titles the subject randomly heard. His gift is broadcast weekly on his Top 20 iTunes comedy podcast “Psychic Circus” and Wednesday shows on WGN Radio.
Unlike other celebrity psychics, Dr. Dingman steadfastly refuses payment for his psychic readings, asking instead his clients contribute what they’re able to their favorite charity. “What do I need money for?” chirps the cantankerous seer. “My gifts have provided all I needed to ensure my financial wellbeing. Now it’s my duty to share my gifts with the world!”
Dr. Dingman tours regularly, performing his Top 10 iTunes Comedy Podcast LIVE from comedy clubs and iconic venues. A psychic in a comedy club?
“Funny? Listen to the shows, then you tell me. The future is Hilarious, and I get to see it first! If I had told you 20 years ago that a guy would prefer to stare at a computer screen than to grope a flesh and blood woman, you’d laugh your ass off,” he explains. “The future wins, the best we can do is hang on and enjoy the ride.”
“Sound… energy… matter — it’s all Vibration. SOUND is VIBRATION,” Dr. Dingman explained in a recent HuffPost interview. “According to Tesla, all the objects we handle daily, pick up the unique “energy Imprint” of their owner.”
“By randomly hearing songs, you allow the UNIVERSE to “select” your songs for you, bringing you and your object into harmonic alignment, thereby creating an energetic connection between the inanimate object and the very animate person. This allows the UNIVERSE – which is alive and sentient, to communicate directly with people all over the globe.”
“The great Nikola Tesla made his discovery during the war. It’s detailed in his personal notebooks, which disappeared when he died less than a year later, in 1943. The FBI raided the New Yorker Hotel and confiscated ALL his papers, so Tesla’s greatest discovery never saw the light of day.” Until now.
In June 2006, a “Deep Throat” within the Bureau leaked a Xerox copy of Tesla’s notebook to Dr. Dingman via an anonymous mail drop wrapped in a brown Safeway supermarket bag. That one package changed the world.
“Tesla’s formulas prove that randomization is the key,” explains Dingman. “By allowing the UNIVERSE – via the energetic transfer of vibrating electrons in the song-playing machine– to select the songs you will hear, we open an actual dialogue with the UNIVERSE itself. The song titles paint pictures and movies in my head, I describe what I see to the subjects, and together we decode what each song – sequence of vibrations – means about their future. Simple.”
“Tesla himself saw this future prior to his death. In fact, the final entry in his notebook read, ‘U budućnosti’ bellman “će čuti budućnost.’ Translated from his native Croatian, the phrase reads ‘In the future, a bellman will hear the future,’ explains Dr. Dingman. The FBI assumed Tesla was talking about a worker in the hotel where he lived, a concierge or bellman. But they were wrong. He was talking about ME, Dr. Lars DINGMAN… and now, the future is here. Actually, it just passed. It’s the past now, but you know what I mean…”

I was working part time to save money to start my image consulting firm, so I figured this would be a great way to add in some revenue while the business gets up and running." She left her corporate job in the fall and started getting business owners together at a local book store café. "I still remember my first Monday after I left my job, I got up that morning and thought, what have I done??? Although there’s been a lot of bumps in the road I don’t regret my decision one bit. My passion is helping others succeed in their marketing efforts, I know how scary it can be to start a business and no one should feel alone on their journey."

I’m Dave Sullivan. I’ve been a successful roofing contractor for more than 30 years with over $150 million in sales and I’m here to show you what I’ve learned.
I was looking forward to working with my father and learning the ins and outs of running the business. And he was looking forward to his retirement and finally relaxing and traveling himself. Something he could never do while he was “chained” to the business.
But those plans were all cut short when he suffered a heart attack from the long hours and stress of running the roofing company for all those years.
Suddenly, I had to step up take the reins of the family business. Now I was a contractor.
But without my father’s “real world” guidance, it didn’t take me long to run the business into the ground.
I knew I needed help but like so many contractors I let my pride get in the way.
After finally setting my big ego aside I started the long climb out of the hole I had gotten us into.
But I didn’t do it alone. I hired a business consultant and it changed my life. With his help we designed a plan to take me where I wanted to go.
I knew I didn’t want the stress of doing everything myself and grinding out a living working 14 hour days. I’d seen first hand how that works out.
I wanted to travel while I was still young and have the time to watch my 3 boys grow up. Essentially, I wanted to be able to do whatever I wanted to do. I wanted to enjoy life.
I wanted to have a business that worked for me. Not just a job where I worked for my business. And that’s exactly what I did.
Over the years I built a wildly successful roofing business that allowed me to step away from the stressful day to day decision making and live the life I wanted.
And you can do it too.
