Let's be honest: There are not enough Sundays a week. In fact there is only one, and this one Sunday happens ... only on Sundays. That really is far too little. https://archive.org/details/sls20070523_en
Exactly this drawback is met by SoundsLikeSunday at radioINCORRECT.org. From now on you will feel like Sunday whenever you listen to this show. No matter when, be it on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays. And on Sundays. Especially on Sundays.
You can expect: Pop, World, Folk, Chanson, Lounge and a lot more. All handpicked and presented by your friendly host Tobias aka das.t.
Recently I have been showing off some German language radio stories I have done many years ago. And I am totally yearning to get at it again, but it's simply too much right now.
Instead I recently came across a little radio show that I did for a while featuring exclusively creative commons licensed music. For a while I even did two versions, German and English. The latter one sounds a bit as if I had potatoes in my mouth and it's obvious that I don't have many speaking
opporunities, but ... oh, well.
I had to cease putting this out once I got another job.
The idea was to create a musical companion that sounds like a relaxed Sunday morning. I first encountered such a show with Paul Catty
's "Sunday Brunch" on ORF Blue Danube Radio
. After that station closed he continued for a while with My Music on ORF International, but the original format is sorely missed. He played loads of classical music and his informative and passionate moderations were infectious. To me he was one of the best music presenters I have ever heard, even though I have always been struggling with the genre. It was his knowledgable, passionate yet calm and relaxed way of talking to me as a listener that absolutely captivated me and opened my emotions for a kind of music I would otherwise not have listened to. To me personally he may be totally different but the only comparison I can think of is John Peel.
And still today I do not really like playlists or mixtapes but do prefer curated radio shows. I want to listen to someone talking to me, introducing me to music I maybe would not have been open for without someone maybe emphasizing some maybe subtle aspects of a song that are worth being noticed (and that would go unnoticed otherwise) or puting things into a context that makes it worthwhile or just passionately state: Wow, I love it.
This kind of approach is what I took for this.
How successful I was may be up to you, to me re-listening was a small revalation, a total throughback. I can proudly say that the musical selection still does work for me and I had been searching for the band Lonah for ages but could neither locate the music nor remember their name. Now I have re-downloaded all their albums. And I totally get why they also received an album feature at another show.
Today I would no longer do a two hour show, as I hardly listen through such a long show myself.
Hope there'll be someone among you who's going to like it despite the mentioned potatoes.
And if so, there's more on archive.org, but mostly German.
