I've had a few people ask if my putting The Big Beat (radio show) on hiatus meant that I'd be stopping The Big Beat (blog) and getting out of radio / DJ'ing altogether.
In short, no and no.
To wit, I'm back at it on Amazing Radio in just a few hours from now with gobs of new music. Last week, I presented my monthly all-American showcase - which I'm calling Amazing America (blog post / archive still to come) - so tonight, imma gonna be catching up on new stuff from THE ANTLERS, BOY, THE HUNDRED IN THE HANDS, THE OK SOCIAL CLUB, THEESATISFACTION, and MATTHEW DEAR among others.
I'm also spinning these new artists for the first time: THE HYPNOTIC LIGHTS, CRUSHED BEAKS, UMA, HONEY, OWEN BARRATT, AN-MAGRITT, MICHAEL A. GRAMMAR, ILLLS, and OPOSSUM. I hope you'll join me but if you can't, I'll post the archived audio to the blog within a few days.
Amazing Radio is heard worldwide at amazingradio.co.uk, where the stream is also time-shifted to all 4 US Time Zones. Listen to any of my most recent Amazing shows right here.
Sample a few selections off tonight's menu from YOUNG KATO, RAPIDS!, and TWO JACKALS.
