Did you know that HI54LOFI has a 24/7 internet radio stream? No, I don't mean the bi-weekly mix tape that I call a radio show even though it's really just a digital mix tape, I mean the actual internet radio station that plays sweet tunes all day every day and that you can listen to on HI54LOFI or on TuneIn. You knew about that right?
Well, whether you're a current listener or a first time caller, I'm going to try to start doing a weekly thing where a guest takes over the tune selection of my internet radio station for an hour of every day that isn't Sunday. Let's call it the 'MIX TAPE RADIO ONE HOUR TAKEOVER". And let's kick it off with Kid Nation's biggest fan and all around ace music blogger, Lauren from The Grey Estates.
Here is her description of what you can expect from her take over…
“I internet bullied Jeremy into letting me takeover his radio station for an hour because I'm my own biggest fan. Thank you, Jeremy. Anyways, I'm the world's moodiest person - not in a bad way but in that during any given day I can experience like 20 bajillion emotions and I always need a soundtrack to match. At first I wanted to make this playlist all the old crappy punk/emo bands I listened to in high school that made me buy Vans and pine after a "maybe" drug dealer but definite hottie in my French class, but then I changed my mind, and instead this playlist is a representation of me. It's a bunch of songs I've fallen in love with recently and forever ago. Some of these are the bands that inspired me to start my blog, some are ones I discovered through it, others are ones that remind me of my life and friends and events and mainly all are just ones that have fit my mood at one point or another.”
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 General Mountain Time, as me and my radio station are General Mountain Timers, so if you are not also a GMTer 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 THE GREY ESTATES on Twitter as we'll probably tweet stuff like "it's on now!!!" when it is now on. Alos, 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?
Finally, if you were thinking “if I listen to the 1hr takeover on one day, there is no reason to tune in on any other day” well my friend, you done thought wrong. Lauren sent more than 1hrs worth of music. Which means that each day will not be the exact same songs nor the exact same order. So tune in all week. And tell your friends and moms and moms friends to do the same.
And hey, what the heck, you might as well listen to the songs that I picked for the other 23hrs of the day. You know, if you got nothing else to listen to. So how about you book mark this page. Or this page (or get the Tunein app on yr phone and search for "HI54LOFI").
