The Attic has reached the intergalactic radio waves! Starting Saturday, January 7, The Attic hosts a bi-monthly radio show on Intergalactic FM (on channel 5, The Garden).
The debut show consists of an 80 minutes mix of (only) Romanian music, coming from avant garde and concrete music composers Horațiu Rădulescu, Iancu Dumitrescu, Costin Miereanu, veterans musicians such as Rodion Roșca and Mircea Florian, as well as psychedelic prog rock bands such as Phoenix or Sfinx, all combined with traditional primitive romanian songs and fresh material from contemporary bands and projects such as Steaua de Mare or Khidja.
The first episode of the show is already available for listen and/or download on the Intergalactic FM website. Next show is scheduled for broadcast on February 21, 20.00 CET.
Intergalactic FM is probably one of the best radio stations in the world. For plenty of reasons. Besides the fact that you can listen to almost any kind of music split in five different channels (from old, new, rare, and obscure sounds from italo to techno, horror soundtracks to house, experimental jazz to folk and world music oddities), you get the full playlist of anything that's being played, generously served on plate by solid and veteran music collectors, diggers, DJs and music producers. And, of course, it never let you down, being online 24/7. I-f (Interr-Ference) is the founding father of cult radio community CBS and the driving force behind Intergalactic FM.
''Intergalactic Classix focuses on 80s-style synth dance and cheesy disco (every day at 11am there's a slot I like called NRG Formaggio), while The Dream Machine is a kind of anything-goes ambient-space-jazz freak-out channel, and quite possibly the only place you'll ever hear the instrumental saxophone-noodling soundtrack to an Italian movie called Porno Shop On 7th Street followed by an ancient clip of James T Kirk reading his captain's log accompanied by some bongos'', BBC journalist Chris Haston writes for The Guardian.
