Music blogger Ryan Spaulding takes to the airwaves

In 2006, Ryan Spaulding bought a new computer with the idea of starting a blog dedicated to Boston’s vibrant music scene. He gave it a name that seemed to counter the humdrum nature of his day job at a medical-device company in the suburbs. He called his music blog Ryan’s Smashing Life.

Spaulding couldn’t foresee that six years later his life is finally living up to that title. Last Sunday Spaulding took his online clout to the airwaves with the premiere of a new TV show on myTV38 , a local affiliate owned by CBS.
