For the 5th week in a row (I'm starting think a pattern is developing) someone is set to take over the HI54LOFI 24/7 internet radio station this week for 1 hour on every day that isn't Sunday. The somebody? Well it is only Andrew Stocker from the brilliant new musical project Horse Teeth (remember that sweet tune that kicked of the 74th episode of THE MIX TAPE RADIO SHOW?).
What should you be expecting to hear during Andrew's 1hr Takeover? Well, here he is with a description…
“Well, originally I constructed a crack list of random Knausgaard audiobook chapters spliced with some Pharaoh Sanders deep cuts but my friend advised that people may not be ready for that next level playlisting (I know right). So instead I elected to grab a couple handfuls of recently released tunes and toss it in a bag with some of my all time favorites. Let’s call it a study in genre eclecticism."
I gotta admit, I'd be a little curious to see how well his original concept would play with the entire Mix Tape Radio audience… but I guess I could always just ask my mom if she would have liked that or not. Also, I have looked at the music Andrew has sent along and it is very good. So yr gonna wanna tune in. Every day.
You can see the 'whens' for each daily take over on the big picture at the top of this post. All times are posted in Mountain Time, as me and my radio station are Mountain Timers, so if you are not also a MT'r and need to work out what time that is where you are in the world, I recommend this handy site. Or, maybe even better, you can just follow HI54LOFI and ANDREW STOCKER on Twitter as we'll probably tweet stuff like "it's on now!!!" when it is now on. Also, the HI54LOFI internet radio station has it's own twitter handle (@MXTP_RADIO) that just tweets out what's playing… so maybe follow that too?
And hey, what the heck, you might as well listen to the songs that I picked for the other 23hrs of the day, right? You know, if you got nothing else to listen to. So how about you bookmark this page. Or this page (I'd also link up to the TUNEIN page, but that stopped working the other day and nobody has responded to my email yet… that's right TUNEIN, you just been put on blast in a paragraph that probably nobody will read… deal with it!).
