But how many of us know that there is an outstanding legacy in terms of internet radio coming in your E.A.Rs right here in our wonderful city?
Northern Underground Radio is the creation of Jamie & Julie Garry. The ethos is to provide an underground dance station to reach the masses. And one of the DJs at the station is to be the subject of our blog today.
Andy Pye broadcasts the Balearic Social Radio Show every Tuesday evening and shares his ridiculously large & varied record collection with the world. We were lucky enough to have a chat with the man himself…
The idea stemmed from me uploading my mixes through Podomatic and running out of bandwidth after a week!
The mixes that I was uploading were being downloaded all over so when I saw the stats it made sense.
I spoke to a friend of mine, Jamie Garry, who runs Northern-Underground.co.uk internet radio station and asked about putting on the Balearic Social radio show which goes out weekly with a one hour guest mix.
So how long have you been collecting music?
I asked for my first record when I was 6 years old and used to spend my pocket money on buying picture disc 7”s each week.
When I got to around 13/14 I started buying more and more records so I’d say around 25 years properly collecting vinyl.
I worked in a record store for 15 years so collecting becomes a habit and you’re always looking for records.
Balearic is open minded-ness don’t you think? That’s what I hope comes across in the show.
