This week is our 11th birthday as a radio program, now syndicated across the country and heard internationally in Canada and Germany. It’s been an incredible journey thus far, and we are very proud of the great radio we’ve created, the artists we’ve been fortunate to connect with at concerts and in-studio sessions, and how we’ve been a small part of the big change taking place in music.
As I’ve said over the past few weeks on the radio show, a LOT has changed in just the past few years regarding the spread of indie and unsigned artists getting big national prominence. It used to be that these acts were considered underground. Now the underground and the above ground are occupying (and competing for) the same space. I believe that’s a good thing, because great material deserves to be showcased, heard and celebrated by all.
Without droning on, in this week’s playlist we’re celebrating not just our own breakthrough as a radio program but also the artists who have emerged from unknown to known. The first hour is a mix of old and newer material. The 2nd hour is mostly exclusive recordings not available anywhere else. Enjoy!
