The future of EP

I don't know what it will be at this point. We have some ideas - but we'll do something. Look for a poll when I return from Japan. Out of necessity, my time accessing the station is limited...

A difficult thing for us proggers now is keeping tabs on new releases and bands both in Europe and USA. There seems to be plenty of music to choose from but it is hard to make a decision.

Therefore I thought of a regular program that delved into all new releases and bands and playing a couple of tracks - a more shortened version of EP.

This is just a thought.

I've proposed a "New Moon" show for awhile now. Originally Roger was going to do it - but he's probably uber-busy with the station stuff now. I'd recruit someone to highlight the new releases and additions to Aural Moon and do a new show like that.

You're right. I'm Über busy these days.

But one of the projects I'm working on is getting someone up and operational to fit the bill.

I don't want to give away any details in case something falls through. Let's just say that I'm on it and we'll see how it goes from there.

Oooh, nice. There's the show: Playing the whole album, like Tommy did, but it being the new adds. If twelve albums are added at once, that's a month of shows!

Spaz's thoughts gave me an idea

Why don't we have an European Song Contest for Prog? - with voting and all on a program and the most voted get's put on the play list


Any thoughts on that?

hee hee. reminiscent of Sean's "Camel in a good way" quote. I know what you mean, but given P. Glass's lack of popularity with some listeners, I didn't want to prejudice anybody against Wim. I think it's pretty good, and different enough from Glass to deserve an unbiased assessment...

Um, I have a show, and I don't want to be greedy, so, "no." I'll fill in regular-style EP until something's decided, if that'll help.

Thanks, but we've got something lined up. Now we just need to get the new DJ trained and we should be good to go.
