Last night, I had the pleasure of venturing around Leicester Square’s Capital Radio building for an in session live perfomance on X fm from the Young Knives. I’m not really sure, what all the fuss is about the band. They were pretty good and sounded very tight, but it wasn’t anything amazing. They did a cover of Kids in America. It was okay.
More interesting was the experience of being in a radio station. It’s funny that everytime that you think someone looks or acts a certain way when they are on air, it’s hilariuos to see them in actual real time face to face. Richard Bacon (who actually is pretty funny) almost seemed a bit too comfortable with about ten or fifteen of us being in there.
Even more interesting, was the question that I’ve had stuck for a while. Is radio dead? Has the Digital and Broadband age finally destroyed it? With Digital Radio Stations, etc you can literally listen to anything that you ever wanted to listen to. So what’s the fuss? Sometimes, You just can’t beat the human aspect of live radio.
