Simply for archival purposes...
It comes to this. A cocktail of recent developments will culminate in the cessation of PulverRadio's streaming at the end of the week. The ongoing CRB drama is but one star in the constellation, and I am hopeful that our bowing out at this time isn't interpreted by any of our brethren in webcasting as a surrender. Our time, very simply, has come.
There are some people I want to thank.
Shadoe and David, it has been the purest of pleasures to work with you both. Your big-time enthusiasm for a (comparatively) small-time gig is a testament to your professionalism, and your legions of fans speak to your charismatic ability to engage an audience. It would take me days to list the things I've learned from listening to your shows.
Ian Bell and especially Jeff Pulver, you hired a kid with a little DJ experience and a passion, and gave him a chance to run a radio station and live a dream. I like to think I've come a long way, and I have you to thank for that.
The following artists are amazing, deserve to be superstars, and have been very generous to me with their time:
- Endless Mike and The Beagle Club
- Elementary Thought Process
- Houston Calls
- Josh Pyke
For the most part, every record label I ever contacted wanted nothing to do with Internet Radio. Drive-Thru Records was a notable exception and was consistently amazing to me.
Lastly, thanks to you, who listened to the shows, emailed requests, read the blog, told your friends. There wouldn't have been a reason to do any of this if not for you.
As for me, I'm going to try my hand at a professional life that doesn't directly involve music, but you can rest assured you'll still be able to find me around the internet. Here's my new blog.
Seriously, thanks. It's been a hell of a ride.
