Who Are We?
RT-Music.net is the web presence of Real Time Music Network,
a division of Real Time Controls, LLC. We are a network of seasoned professionals in the music industry who are joined together to provide promotional and marketing opportunities for established and up-and-coming indie artists.
We serve local, regional, national & international indie musicians within USA's Middle Atlantic region.
We're a network of folks whose first love is music, and who care about bringing fresh new music to the masses.
We serve all genres of music, addressing the need for indie musicians to get their music heard, as a single promotional and management solution. You make the music, we'll take care of the rest. Have management already? We'll work with them on a non-exclusive basis to make sure that your music is noticed.
Not a musician, but a music lover? We've got something for you, too. This web portal serves as an outlet for some great internet radio, and online magazine for the Real Time Music Network to provide you with upcoming tour dates, lets you purchase tickets online to events, provides music reviews (you can participate in that process as well).
We are closely affiliated with the web's #1 indie music listening outlet, College Underground Radio, and manage and operate the College Underground Radio Baltimore affiliate internet radio station. We bring you 24x7 independent music, in-depth features, and other programming of major interest.
We and our network partners have been in and around the music business for decades, and see the need for a one-stop service with one goal in mind: to make sure that the artists can be heard, and to maximize the profit for their hard work.
As an indie musician, you know that managing all of these different services can be a distraction from what you do best. We will work with you to tailor a custom promotional plan, and will be fully accountable to you. We've learned that communication and accountability are the keys to any successful venture.

Something for everyone who loves indie music!
What We Do
It's simple. We handle the details on the business side of the music business so you, the artist, can focus on what you do best on the music side of the music business. Together we make it happen. In the words of the old Road Dog, you make it rock, and we'll make it roll!
Some of the services we provide or facilitate are:
- Talent booking
- Promotional tour circuit booking
- Radio, Television and Media promotion
- New music reviews
- Recording services (studio and live)
- Tour and logistical support
- Artist management services
- Network partner referrals
The music can be great, but of no value if people don't hear it. We make sure the music presented through our efforts will enable people to enjoy new music -- your music.
Lee Townsend - Owner/Host
Lee has been a professional recording and performing musician for more than 40 years. He has a background in radio and promotions. Seeing the vast wealth of unsigned and virtually unheard original independent music in the region, Lee determined the best way to get it heard was to pool together all available talent and resources. He formed the Real Time Music Network in early 2013, and things have grown explosively since. In April, Real Time entered the internet radio broadcasting field with it's live talk show, featuring a unique in-depth look at artists.
Bev Bonadio - Producer/Manager
Bev came on board with Lee at the beginning and although not a musician (except for playing a wicked cowbell), has been around music and professional musicians for most of her life. She possesses a keen ear for what is good. A major driving force in Real Time Music Network, she produces the radio show, as well as performs many of the behind the scenes tasks that keep us afloat...the glue that holds us together. You'll regularly hear her chime in on the Tuesday night live radio shows, and more often than not busies herself with kicking Lee in the shins to keep him on task.
