To me, if I could start a radio statio, this would be the basis to what I would do. The emphasis would be on new, indie rock and roll from around the world with a smattering of lost rock and roll classics and not so classics. You can still throw in the big boys from today and yesterday but instead of playing, let’s say "You Can’t Always Get What You Want" by the Stones you would play "Connection" or "Jiving Sister Fanny." Leave the time-worn classics to classic rock stations and concentrate on the less played stuff by these legends. Throw in some radical/progressive news and public affairs programming and whammo, cool radio for the podcasting generation. Ah, it is to dream!
Let me know what you thought of the show. A big thank you to Doug Ford, the regular host of Drastic Plastic for letting me play in his sonic playground. Thanks Doug!
