From Grey's Anatomy to Mother Earth

Reddmen to play 'Mother Earth'“Grey’s Anatomy” gave a local band the opportunity to share their music with millions of viewers when one of their songs was featured on an episode.

Saturday, as many as 2 billion people may be able to experience the music of the Reddmen.

The Reddmen have been invited to Washington, D.C., to perform at 4:30 p.m. MDT today for a special concert called “Mother Earth” at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.
How it happened:It all started when Ed Ornelas, an editor for the TV show, heard one of their songs playing on his cousin’s MySpace profile. Porcupine received an e-mail from him asking where he could find their music. After some skepticism on the band’s part that anything would come of it, the pieces fell into place.

After the show aired, Porcupine began receiving more feedback from friends and from people he did not know. He also saw the band’s name appear more often in blogs and Web sites when he did Internet searches on the Reddmen.

“It’s bizarre. That show’s so huge. I never knew how big it was,” he said.

Writerfella here --
Oh, great! And the next thing they're going to discover is that the internet negates protection under the Millennium International Copyright Act of 2000, and they won't be able to rescue or to defend their previous music to save their own lives. writerfella's short story, "Rite Of Encounter" now appears in 16 languages worldwide (including German, Swedish, Czech, and Japanese) and he never will see a cent for all of those book printings and sales.
Farewell and adieu, all you fine Spanish ladies, farewell and adieu, all you ladies of Spain, for I and my crew have been ordered to Boston, and thus will I never see you again...
