In a distant galaxy deep in the ancient mists of time, I used to have a daily radio show. I also hosted many long overnight slots.
I played EVERYTHING.
You were as likely to hear opera as trad jazz as Moroccan trance music – and all in the same hour – and if I may be immodest, it worked pretty well.
Of course, there is no room on the radio waves for a program like this.
Everything needs to come in nice neat packages.
Thirty seven years later, I finally found a station willing to give me a one-time-only two and half hour slot.
What do you think?
Is it worth the effort of trying to make this a regular thing?
My benefactor, community radio station WGXC FM, has all the ASCAP etc. licenses that allow me to present music, something I can’t do on the podcasts without getting specific permissions from each artist.
If you think this is worth doing more of, encourage me. (I need another project like I need a hole in the head – but this was fun and maybe it would be a good addition to the world.)
