I want to say THANK YOU for your support!! We had 10,000 listeners!! The show went so well, the station is now going to shift their focus on featuring local band’s music, instead of the same old mainstream stuff you hear on every radio station. This will happen Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights 8-10pm Central Time/ 9p-11p Eastern Time. It’s all really exciting!! Click HERE to get to Into The Darkness Radio.
Tokyo Bay Sushi in Naperville is where we hosted the show. For those of you that were unable to tune in, I tried Sushi for the very first time! Per the waiter’s recommendation, I tried the Eel. To my surprise, it was good! The first bite scared me, because I thought the seaweed wrapped around the eel was the skin of the eel! After Matt (the host of the show) educated me on what it REALLY was….well it was all good. For those of you who know me, you will know this was a huge advancement in my food choices..because I hate cooked fish, and I have a shellfish allergy. So never in a million years did I even THINK I would be in a Sushi Bar, eating SUSHI. I’d recommend this experience to everyone!
During the first hour, we interviewed Ryan, the guitarist from the band The Employees and played a track off of their new record Unemployed, entitled, “Impersonator”. The lyrics of this song speaks true to it’s title, and has Blagojevich referenced. Ryan spoke true about his own experience’s and belief’s in the music industry, and the direction he believes the industry is heading.
The last half of the show, we interviewed Polarizer’s keyboard player, Stan. He shared many stories with us of the band’s personal experiences playing all different types of shows. We played 2 tracks entitled ‘Wirewalker’ and ‘You and Your Tell’ off of their upcoming EP, Lightscapes. He shared with us his opinions on the challenges up and coming alt/rock bands face when searching for an identity.
We had a surprise call in from the lead singer/creator of the band M E D I O C R E (based in Toronto, Canada) call in and serenade us with singing a Queen song, a capella.
All and all, for my first time co-hosting a radio-show, it went really well. A big thank you to all who participated and to all who listened in. And most of all, thank you Matt for inviting me on to do the show with you, and making my song ‘Colorscreen’ the theme song of the night!
