“So it’s been a while. Why didn’t I text or call? Well, I’m sorry but when I knocked on your door at the base of your stoop you just didn’t let me in. I was offended. I was hurt. Most of all I was embarrassed. I put a lot of work into this you know – but it’s alright because we’re here now. I’m ready and so are you. That’s all that matters.”
That (^) is pretty much the reason why I didn’t have a show last week! I couldn’t get into the studio due to the end of reading week. I didn’t want to promise you – my great listeners – something I wasn’t sure I could follow through on. Sounds fair right? …In theory anyways.
REGARDLESS, I’ll save you from more of my irrelevant thoughts. Today on AIRWAVES was one of the best shows I’ve had in my opinion. Everything just fell into place nicely and although I wasn’t able to put on an extended show I had a great time. I spoke to what I thought makes a great music video with my ideas revolving around the concept of being memorable (touching on different, cool, emotional, and funny). A few videos came to mind that are awesome examples that you can find below! My artist of the night was FOALS due to their new album “Holy Fire” and International tour. Also their single, “Inhaler” is just epic. On the Airwave Cinema this week I featured songs from NCIS and Suits.
Notable show dates:
Ra Ra Riot – March 6
Stars + Said the Whale – March 21
Alt-J – March 27
Local Natives – March 28
Foals – May 11
The Postal Service – June 11
