Hello All, Finally after much thought, time wasted and set up we are now ready to hit the air waves with what we belive to be the only record digging show on terestrial radio in the UK (FM). We know there are other similer shows on the net but we think this makes us unique. We have compleate music freedom that can be picked up via the beauty of a hand held transistor radio.
Please find out about the very first official live show below including tracks and discussion. Meanwhile we had better start work on show 2 . Oh and it does go out on the internet like the others too.
After comitting to the idea of a recording digging radio show which came about from the love of music, broadcasting, the facination of crate diggers and a very niche Tedtalk I needed a plan to see if the format would work. Its was quite possibe this idea might not stack up as much as my brain wanted it too.
Luckerly, I was already broadcasting on my local station in Northampton UK on 106.9 N-live hosting the Friday drive time show so I pitched the idea of a one hour record digging weekly to the station manager. I did not know what I was asking for but tried to expalin as best as I could. It was a positive out come probilly helped by offering to fill a twilight spot on a Thursday.
What followed shortly after were four pilot show that when out live to Northampton and the internet. It seemed to work being described as a pandoras box of music and therefore the opppertunity was avaiable to persue. One thing was for sure by week two I had started to relised how much time and paticence I was going to need to get the songs I wanted in the right format.
The shows are on tape somewhere, and are not my best work, however its possible one day they might reappear for a listen as a riminder of how it stated if it goes well.
Having decided upon a montly two hour slot this brings us to the first official show which will go out/went out on N-live in August 2018. In homage to those initial four shows we wanted to do a best of what was broadcast over those initial weeks. It wont feel like you missed them at all, welcome to the best of the pilots!
