I always listen to music while I paint. I was thinking about starting an internet radio station - for anybody to listen to - that played the music I listen to! It would be free for all to listen, and just fun for me (it's cheap) - maybe I'd even DJ live sometimes ;)
I was thinking about setting up at http://www.live365.com - it's free and easy to listen to stuff, you just need to register, nothing fancy. I listen to a WIDE variety of music and I'd like to share it with people who know me, or like my art, who want something to paint to, etc. It would be mostly rock music: oldies, classic rock, alternative, folk, indie, goth, industrial, etc. Lots of Beatles, Tori Amos, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Nine Inch Nails, Robyn Hitchcock, Loreena McKennitt, David Bowie, Rolling Stones, The Cure, Fleetwood Mac, etc. etc. etc. Maybe I'd even welcome requests or suggestions ;) For those of you concerned about Recording Artists' Rights, no worries - this is music I own (the overwhelming majority of it at least)!
So I thought I'd take a little poll - if I had a little internet radio station, would anybody listen? If you are NOT a LiveJournal member (and can't vote in the poll) just comment anonymously on this post, so I know you're out there ;)
So, if I had an internet radio station - would you like to listen?
Yes! I would listen frequently!
Yes, I would check in occasionally.
Maybe, I don't know if I would or not.
No, I don't have time for that.
No, I don't really dig that sort of music.
