I now know the wonders of satellite radio. My goodness, I love XM! The Boneyard is just about the best radio channel for Glam fans.
My husband bought - and installed - my the satellite radio out of guilt. Now, I have hundreds of channels at my fingertips.
I can't believe I waited this long to join the satellite radio revolution. I always thought the service too expensive - not true! The unit was dirt cheap and the monthly rate is very reasonable. It is definitely worth it for someone like me who lives and dies by music.
I listened to The Boneyard for the first time yesterday afternoon. The very first song I heard - period - on my new unit was "Looks That Kill." Coincidence? I think not.
Catch the Fever - otherwise known as the Rocklahoma organizers - are very wisely using The Boneyard to stream their line-up announcement press conference on March 4. Yes, I'll be listening. You see, that press conference was the entire catalyst for my satellite radio. I was invited to attend the press conference at the Whisky A Go-Go in Los Angeles. Sadly, there was no way I could fly to L.A. in the morning, attend the press conference, blog the event, then fly home that same night. Those sorts of extravagances are not in this working-class girl's budget. I won't lie: I was devastated. You have to be invited to that press event. I felt sort-of special.
So, thanks to the guilt, I have satellite radio and I can listen to the line-up announcement just as it happens. As soon as I hear the bands selected to play Rocklahoma 2008, I'll post them here in (almost) real time!
Back to the Boneyard. My Glam goodness, I would like to work for that station. Too bad I've already worked in radio and I know everything is automation and low pay. Still, I think it would be great fun to be a program director of an all Glam radio station. How hard could it be? You just roll out of bed, program your Audio Vault to play Motley Crue, Steelheart and Poison and you're good to go. What a life.
Eddie Trunk has a radio show on The Boneyard every Monday night. I might tune in and give it a chance.Turns out, The Boneyard sometimes has musical acts perform live on the air! Here's Kix playing "Blow My Fuse."
So, do you have XM or Sirius satellite radio? The big question: do you think such channels are helping to Bring Back Glam?
