Sweet Static

Yes, another mp3 blog. Trying to share what I like with the world. The music here is for sampling only and are up for a limited time. It's simple really you see. If you like the music then go out and support the artists. Buy a cd/mp3/eight track, make a request on radio, see them live, tell others about it. This way this wonderful medium hopefully won't be stomped on.

Location: Windsor, Ont, Canada

Sweet Static is an mp3 blog that allows me to share the music I love and also to point out other cool things around the internet that catch my attention. It is also a place where I can talk about my radio show by the same name, now on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on CJAM 91.5 FM in Windsor, Ontario. Got something I should hear? Email me at sweetstatic @ gmail.com. All comments left here are emailed to my inbox, so you can get a hold of me that way also. You can also follow the show/me on twitter at sweetstaticcjam.

-Also today is the first Sweet Static, the radio show. For those of you new I've been doing a radio show for years and it ended last week. I used it as a springboard to try something new and that starts today from 10:30am to noon EST.

There are going to be growing pains in the beginning as I get used to a new format and less time, but it still should be a good listen. In the beginning I plan to highlight some of the great music you can find in the mp3 blog world and also songs from the most polular lists on the Hype Machine and Elbo.ws.

Other things I plan to do is play songs to promote local shows, play new music and most importantly play stuff that I like.

Two ways to listen.

1-Go to the CJAM website and click on the the "listen" button
2-Some friends have told me they've had troubles with that so try opening a url on whatever player you use and put in

That's it for now. Back later with my playlist and a couple of links to things from mp3 blogs that I'm digging very much.
