Top 28 Of 2004 – Back From The Dead Episode 025 (30th December 2004)

Back when I was younger I spent a bit of time obsessing over the charts – pop charts that is. Every Sunday between 4pm and 7pm I was glued to the radio for the Top 40. Part of it I suppose was down to an attempt to develop my character and musical taste, to explore all the different types of music that I could (I spent most of my teens listening to the radio in some form or another) but I also think somewhere I was looking for trance, because slowly I refined the music I liked and was able to narrow down and focus my search.

I can remember hearing the likes of 808 State, Orbital, The KLF, Oceanic, The Prodigy, Jack & Chill, Xpansions, Felix, Altern8, System 7, Future Sound Of London, and so many more artists and all of them heard for the first time in the top 40 on a Sunday.

So now, here I was with my own radio show and a load of tunes I’d hammered, thinking to myself, “I ought to do a Top 40.”

Due to the nature of DJSR, acquiring the time to do a full top 40 wasn’t practical, but I could get a full 3 hours. Which I worked out would get me 28 tunes for definite, hence, my first “year mix”, in the form they’ve all taken since – a chart countdown.

The thing with doing the year mix as a countdown just means that the set can be as random as you like, and I love that. It frees you from the normal constraints of the “standard” set and makes for a much better listening experience, heightening the anticipation since you truly don’t know what’s coming next, only that it’ll probably be even better than the tune playing now! 😀

Love The Weekend Episode 001 (29th December 2004)

One of my regular listeners, Stella, had told me about a site she helped run with her friend Hooje called Love The Weekend – it was a forum similar to DJ Source, with extras like an arcade section and lots of other little perks, including a radio station!

Hence I acquired my third weekly show, although it was a more irregular arrangement without a fully fixed schedule – basically I went on if I felt like it! 🙂

If you’ve ever downloaded any of my sets in the past five years, that’s been made possible by Stella. She provides me with the servers I use to store all my sets that allow all of you to download my mixes, a service for which she’s  never asked for anything in return 🙂 She’s always been one of my biggest fans and I love her dearly, and she is one of the few that remind me how much trance and internet radio in general have managed to enrich my life, by leading me to wonderful people whom I might never have discovered otherwise 🙂
