Just did a little 40 minute slot on the Steve Hatherly Show for TBS Radio. I do a lot of my own podcasts, but this was only the second time in 2 years that I actually got to do some radio work. I love it. I love the radio and how relaxed the recording can be. It’s really no different from doing the podcast. The production values for radio are much higher though, and I can choose music to play, rather than looking for open source music as I do on the podcast.
We talked about music, obviously. I got to choose a couple of songs and explain why I liked them. I chose
this song, and
this one. The latter holds special importance for me because it was my gateway to rock and roll. I was 12 and I would head to Townsend Records, a small shop in my small home town. One day I saw this dude staring at me from the cover of a CD. He had this style that I liked, and that seemed to say, if you dig my style you should hear my music. Without knowing anything about Jimi Hendrix I bought the album.
When I got home I put the CD in and hit play. Suddenly ‘Purple Haze’ was entering my ears for the first time and it blew my mind. I never knew music could do that. From that point on, rock and roll was all I listened to.
Later that night after leaving the radio station I recorded another podcast with Dave for Season 2 of The Condition. That will be also out in 2 weeks. Until then we have 2 more episodes, the latest of which, ‘Freedom? – Anarchy and Rogue States’
can be heard here.
You can listen to my segment on the Steve Hatherly Show on TBS at 2:20pm on Wednesday, December 21st.
