I’ve been spending more time exploring media and entertainment available on the internet. There is so much and so many pockets, it seems I could just spend all my time looking and there would still be more out there. My other alternative is to pick a few great sites and just visit those. At the top of my list is Strangeways Radio, an internet radio station that plays all the music I want to listen to and has special programming with hosts that know good music. This podcast is an interview with Michael Foster, the creator and owner of Strangeways Radio. A guy so dedicated to his love of alternative music and his quest to listen to the best alternative music, he created his own internet radio station. We talk about the history of Strangeways Radio, the programming and how he manages to keep it all going strong. We also play some tracks that are some of his favorite songs from the Strangeways catalog. If you like shoegaze, trip hop, Brit pop, and more good alternative genres, this episode is for you.

You’ve probably noticed that I’ve been stacking up the video episodes lately. What started as a change of pace for me, to do a video documentary, has now become part of the Most People Are DJs experience. However, as all things on MPAD are guided by my passions and interests, so are my videos. If I have a few videos come out over the span of two months, it means a lot of bands I like came to town in the same few weeks.And, I’ve been surprised how many good shows have come to town, OMD, Girl Talk, and on this video I’m featuring InnerPartySystem, one of the most exciting bands around today that make aggressive rock music still relevant by using electronic music to drive their pulsating rhythms. There’s also a message buried in their music about the celebrity and consumption nation we’ve become, see American Trash and Don’t Stop for examples. In this video ISP discuss the current tour and what their live experience is all about. I have at least 4 other interview clips I haven’t used yet so look for more from ISP in a future MPAD video episode.

I’m not naming names but I even know a few that had some good success with match.com.
With my podcast I know I have quite a diverse audience and maybe they feel like I do occasionally. You know, that feeling that you may not fit in with most of society.

But, have no fear, match.com is there to help you but finding a person that is looking for the same things in a person you are. And, if you think it’s weird to use a dating website, just remember match.com has been around for 14 years and over 20,000 members are using it right now.

I recorded this episode of MPAD before I heard the song “Friday” by Rebecca Black, otherwise I might have played it, and not because it’s bad, because I kind of like it. When I watched it, and yes, I watched the entire video (twice), I kept wondering, this has to be a parody, right? Maybe like a SNL Digital Short, but there’s an odd sense of real sincerity shining throughout the video that I just can’t dismiss it as a parody. It’s too much like a party. Besides you can’t just listen to “Friday”, you have to see the video to fully experience it.
On this episode I do play some warm chill music. That’s music that you can “chill” to but has some warm elements in the melody, a lot like the weather this time of year. One of the songs I feature this week is “Lima Magic” by3D Friends, the theme song to Skins, the US version, which is wrapping up its season 1 next week. The song is free to download at the MTV Skins site, so if you like what you hear, be sure to download it.
My paid affiliates this week are Zazzle.com and Petco.com. At Zazzle.com you can save 10% on your order of $50 or more when you use the coupon code MOSTPEOPLE13. This week Zazzle started selling shirts to support Japan’s rescue and recovery from the recent earthquake/tsunami catastrophe. Zazzle also offers thousands of other t-shirts and accessories that are super cool.

Sometimes my life is filled with strange coincidences. Last week I interviewed the artist, Junk Culture, and Junk Culture on this video is Deepak Mantena, JC is his project of taken bits of found sound, his own musical work and singing, all spun together in quirky dance music that’s quite indefinable. This video was done before he ran on stage and warmed up for Girl Talk on March 3rd at Compuware Arena. Thanks to the fancy camera work of my friend Sandip Massey, it’s one of my rare video appearances. Hopefully, my awkward gestures and head bobbing don’t distract you from an otherwise great interview. Junk Culture’s latest release “Summer Friends” is available on Illegal Arts records and can be purchased through your favorite online music seller.I am seeing Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark which had an album with the same title. The
I also want to mention that Deepak does some very funny videos with his brother over at celerystudios, be sure to check a few out.

Runner Runner are one of those new bands that when they come to my town they receive response like they have already made it big. Fans will scream while they play, sing along to songs that haven’t been released and mob the merchandise table for the latest t-shirt. If you didn’t know Runner Runner you’d probably question what the big deal is all about. And, that’s the point, because once you hear and see Runner Runner, the reason they are a big deal is readily apparent. They have an energy and excitement to their music that pours out of each song. They are also incredibly nice guys that take time to talk to each and every fan and make time for interviews and videos with schlubs like me. I spent about 20 minutes with Nick and Peter filming these video clips that they really put their thought and interest into. In fact, I have so much good stuff this is just part 1, check back in a couple weeks for part 2.
The video was filmed before Runner, Runner warmed the crowd up for the Pretty Reckless. Yes, Pretty Reckless is the band fronted by actress, . While I’m not a straight ahead rock fan, I have to say tPR played a good set and as their name suggests they are certainly pretty reckless. Look for their cameo appearance in my video.
