I have been doing 2 shows on another internet radio station, however I have left as I felt that a)they took themselves far too seriously for what they where. b) did not embrace particularly diverse types of music. c) Where really awful to me, when I had to have a week off after an operation?!?!?!
I also volunteer for a hospital radio show, doing tech stuff and some voice broadcasting. That show is ace to work on!
I have over 150 gb of mp3 music, from all genres including very up to date pop and dance, however, a lot of my music is very different, I love playing underground electronica, unsigned bands(with permission of course), less commercial indie, new folk, americana and lots of really good stuff that I know a lot of people listen to but dont get the chance to on commercial radio shows(except possibly radio 6)... my previous shows have amongst others had the following themes...
Unusal covers of really good tunes
Rock and punk
New folk and its roots
Gone before their time(nick drake, eliot smith, jim morrison etc)
Some of the bands that I'm currently really liking, just to give you an idea of the kind of thing I'm playing:
Bat for lashes
Kings of Leon
Manic Street Preachers
I am Kloot
And about 8 billion more....And I do very much vary from week to week on what I'm listening to and playing...keep it fresh I say!
I have everything needed for a decent show, some experience, a condensor mike and a huge amount of music just waiting to be played, I'm not particularly a comedy jolly DeeJ but I do know my onions when it comes to music, and thats what I prefer to do rather than acting a goon... I'm more about the music!!
i would be interested in having a shot on your station, if you could give me a shout if I sound like what you are looking for, and let me know what shows you have spare... that would be great, as I want to keep perservering with this hobby/potential career!!
