As promised, the radio show has gone live! The first pilot/introductory episode is now available on Scanner FM .
Commentary is in English in the end as it is easier to ad lib and quicker to prepare since time is not always an ally.
I don’t need to add much more commentary for the first show as it is really an intentionally broad selection designed to show the range of where we might go rather than make any particular statement. Of course the inclusion of Pablo Bolivar for the first focus is a way of promoting local artists which will always be of importance, but only if the music is good. I am forever traumatised by the decision of Australian national youth/alternative station JJJ to have a minimum percentage of Australian music. While this policy had good intentions, it also had bad consequences as second rate garage bands which had done nothing more than record a sketchy track received considerable airplay at the expense of the otherwise perfectly good foreign music that they used to play.
Full track listing is at Scanner FM.
Finally, I need/want promos, information, recommendations for up-coming shows. Please send anything of interest to me at floatinghead9[at]yahoo.es
