Well I added a new category to my blog, Blues. Why did I do this, well I am going to accomplish something that I have always wanted to do, be a DJ at a radio station. Not sure why I have never actively pursued this passion until now, but I am doing it now.
As a visual artist I have long listend to music as I created art or worked on web sites or other computer projects. Music has always provided a great back drop for my creativity. I have also enjoyed attending live music performances. I wish I could go to more concerts and festivals, but lets say I just love music.
So why be a DJ on a radio station when there is all of these digital streams for music on the Internet? Well good old fashioned radio is a lost art form. Listening to a live DJ select music from a music library can expose you to new music. A good DJ can spin a mood or tell a story just by the playlist that he has selected for the show. I want to bring some of the personal interaction and local flavor to my radio show. I do not know if I will be a favorite with the listening audience in the Albany area, but I will enjoy playing the blues.
