Been hoping to find a page like this for awhile . . .
I ran a Live365 channel for about four years spinning nothing but vinyl ripped to .mp3 from my personal record collection. The program was called "Crate Digger's Radio" and I had a lot of fun putting it together. Had a very good audience with thousands of people tuning in from all over the world. The musical mix was always eclectic and original. Spanning genres on vinyl from jazz, to folk, to rockabilly, classic rock (a lot of that), to indie & electronica, to honky-tonk and even a bit of metal.
Basically, if I liked it, and I thought my listeners would like it . . . I played it (and they all seemed to like it).
I did not actually speak on the channel but I did keep the music fresh with daily album side uploads (cut into separate songs and put on shuffle).
When Live365 was put out of business with the recent royalty rate changes I felt a great sadness . . . and . . . more importantly . . . I'm like, "what am I going to do with ALL OF THESE RECORDS?!?!?"
So, I put two, two-hour demo radio shows together using Audacity, a Yeti mic and my heeeuge record collection.
I have yet to send either of these shows out to any of my local (St. Louis & Columbia, MO) indie radio stations . . . but perhaps I may not have to do that if there's anyone who might be interested in my services here.
I could easily put a weekly or bi-weekly show together for any internet radio station and I would be THRILLED to do so!
I must admit that I have no experience behind a mic, but I do believe that I have the requisite abilities. I'm a fast learner, I have a good voice, I have a fairly extensive musical vocabulary and record collection to match, with a good ear for good music. I think I have an ability to turn anyone on to any genre . . . all it takes is a good example and I'm great at finding it!
I'm self employed (own an antique mall) and a night owl. Any early to late evening / late-night spot would be best but as noted, I'm flexible.
If anyone would be interested in giving me a shot, I'd love to join your team!
