Ibiza Love Radio Love
Hi people! Hope you’re all having a great 2013 so far! Wow, cannot believe we are already into February. For me 2013 has already kicked off to a great start, and I hope yours has to. So what’s happening in my world I hear you ask? Well with our brand new Radio Show ‘The Blast’ streaming out live across the airwaves on Castle Club Radio, a new station based on yet another party capital Ayia Napa and hosting great shows from the likes of Jon Fitz, Ibiza favourite and part of the production team Herd & Fitz, the workload is by no means in any way slowing down. Of course I do have time to write this blog for Ibiza Inside as I am very happy to be here and it’s another great way of communicating with you guys & girls on what’s going on. Huge respect to Virgil, Marisa and the team… it feels great to be part of the II Family!
What makes great radio entertainment
So with the launch of The Blast kick-starting in January I thought this month I’d focus on what makes great radio entertainment. It seems to me that many stations playlist what’s current and on a variety of different shows you often get the same structure offered as a listener. That’s why joining Castle Club Radio has already been a great experience as we just want to bring back the true essence of house music and our love and passion in sourcing and finding great music just for you, delivering it to you amazing people at home. This is what it used to be like back in the day….Pirate radios going to all those extreme lengths in infiltrating the airwaves to bring their love in music to their audience, even though this was once frowned upon by radio stations and nowadays is still considered a negative way to broadcast. This said many stations took the airwaves by storm and took a huge audience away from the mainstream stations. So much so that in fact some gained such a huge listenership they were granted a licence to broadcast for example in the UK; Kiss FM Started out as a pirate station and today is still broadcasting as a national station to thousands of new listeners every week.
Is radio old fashioned?
Radio on Ibiza
I love the spirit of true radio. Ibiza is the home to some great music and great radio. One station I love is Ibiza Global Radio which I personally have been tuning into since first finding out about the station. It’s great as well with online radio we can listen to the stations we love even if we are tuned in from another country… I’ve been locked into Ibiza Global Radio for months! It’s a great station and truly does reflect the true identity of Ibiza’s club culture in every show. Online radio has provided people with the variety and choice in music like never before. It opened up a world of choice and expression which can be broadcast to be loved by people all over the world. This to me reflects the positivity of music and how through using radio as a platform we can once again come together as a community: one community under a groove of sounds and beats. Sounds exciting!
