The Egg Radio Blog Will Soon Turn Six!


On June 22nd,  this blog (our little piece of the internet) will be six years old. We've published something like 250 posts but each one was written by hearts full of passion for the music we broadcast and the listeners who have supported Egg Radio since 2005. We are very proud to have survived so much chaos and craziness through the years, celebrating friends made and (sadly) lost as time passed, and we are grateful for every second spent doing our very best to keep you entertained and informed about artists you might not otherwise know. We've been very fortunate to have so many readers, as well. Check out the stats on the right. Sure, 82,000 doesn't seem like that many... but, for a little old internet station, it averages almost 14,000 views annually and we're okay with that! We have and we will always be about the one art form we love above all others: Music lifts the spirit, frees the soul, expands horizons and gives us comfort in every situation.
The internet was still kinda new when Egg Radio was born but, even after (nearly) twelve years online, we have lost not an ounce of passion for this project. It is a labor of love from us to you.
Have a fantastic 2017!

New Music? Yeah, We've Got That

When I write these posts, I have a hard time remembering just what we've added over the last few days, so... instead of relying on my faulty neurons/synapses/whatevers, I've decided to just screenshot the file before loading it into the system. Are we Hi-Tek or what? (We'll be posting these screen shots with each new music upload.) These are amazing songs from artists that you maybe haven't heard and we think you'll really enjoy them. You can always post your opinions in the comments section and if you like what you hear, spread the word! As always, thank you for listening, for your love and for your support!

Look Up Here... I'm In Heaven

David Bowie's death has made an impact on my life far greater than I expected.

While I celebrate the fact that he gave us the gift of his music up until the day that he died, I wasn't through having him be a very important part of my life... I wanted more. I wanted to know that 'Blackstar' was a fantastic album (it is) but not his last album. I wanted to know that he would next walk into a studio with his longtime friend and producer, Tony Visconti, to begin work on yet another amazing record. I wanted to know that he would continue to be DAVID BOWIE and make all of us giddy with anticipation for his new work as we were while awaiting the follow up to 'Ziggy Stardust'. I wanted to know what persona he would next take on.

It won't happen now. Bowie's recorded legacy is complete and we can, all of us, rejoice that he gave to us so much of himself to remember, listen to and be continuously thrilled. We can recall memories gathered from each stage of his career, the carefully crafted images that I won't name because, as a Bowie fan, you already know them. We watched, we listened, we wanted to BE him but, as mere humans, we would never be brave enough to adopt those looks while living on our home planet. He made the journey from aloof, even cold-hearted superstar to affable, accessible rock legend as gracefully as anyone has.

As changeable as his public persona was, one thing never changed and it was his brilliance as a singer/songwriter; from 'Space Oddity' to 'I Can't Give It All Away' he never stopped topping himself, re-inventing and owning any style of music he chose to explore and then re-create in his own way.

He was (and always will be) a part of my life, a true hero from the first time that he amazed me. I am going to miss him and it will be awhile before the hurt stops. May he gaze down upon us and know how much he was loved and admired.
