(Station ID: Daniel Myer of Haujobb promotes TWITCH)
TWITCH Radio was my first serious attempt at webcasting, via an hour-long radio show that was simulcast by the terrific team behind Tampa’s Communion After Dark (www.communionafterdark.com). The name is a direct reference to my all-time favorite Ministry album, tracks from which were often featured heavily.
At the time, it had been several years since I’d been on air regularly, so TWITCH presented an opportunity for dialogue and discussion (occasionally about emo/screamo bands with my then teenage daughter, Emmilee) and, simply, to talk about records I liked.
I also loved having the opportunity to mix in catalog or other artists/tracks that I frequently listened to at home or remote, but often couldn’t play out. A classic example is this random “megamix” of Virtual Descent, Elegant Machinery and Destroid that I happened to uncover in my inbox a couple of weeks ago. Too synthpop for what I was doing in the clubs in the day, but perfect for getting your TWITCH on.
