I have been DJ-ing on efestivals radio for the past couple of weeks, the first week was very very enjoyable but it seemed I was beset with problems last week. It has since transpired that my splitter for my broadband connection was faulty, I have replaced that and it seems that my connection issues may have disappeared, however I am not massively confident. My thinking was that my connection no longer drops.
So the shows then, well the listening figures didnt set the world on fire, this week will hopefully be a different as I have now come out to my friends and they are going to listen.
The tracks themselves, on the last show have really been a mix that might make it on to a tape or something that I havent heard in a while that I love. I dont think its too obscure, I dont think Glen Campbell is obscure, but by the same token I know what I dislike and I will avoid them, Kooks, RHCP, Muse, Coldplay, U2, Radiohead. If there was 3 listed there it would be the unholy trinity, it isnt it is 5 and I guess honestly if I dug around I could maybe find one track that I like by all of them, bar the kooks, and the RHCP track would be a cover (Higher ground) Maybe I will insert a new feature next week, songs I like by bands I hate.
So tuesday I do it all again and by Sunday afternoon I will have all of the music ready, I think its going to be a good one this week.
