Fish Creek Radio was started by 1 guy with a musical therapy addiction. 6 months later it became a small group of people, with a wide variety of musical tastes. We love to play really cool music. Art is music is art!
Fish Creek Radio is simply about music, music is why we are on the air. We don't sell ads, we don't have corporate sponsors, no one dictates what we play, no one dictates why we play it.
Fish Creek Radio is also about YOU!! Without you we're just talking to ourselves. This is INTERACTIVE radio. If you love us, let us know...the same is true if you hate us. We are happy to take your comments and suggestions, feel free to contact us here.
Now that we’ve gotten to 2017 I need to say a few things about this incredible journey called Fish Creek Radio. First of all, music therapy works. And sharing new music is one the best side effects. Whether it’s playing an old favorite or singing something completely new, the music is what matters.
Congratulations to Scott on “Country Radio Station of the Year” What a comment on the state of main stream radio when one person producing 32 hours of original programming a month is given that title. Thank you to the CMA’s for the acknowledgement, I’m stilled stunned. It only proves that Scott was right and the industry has got it all wrong, as usual. “Give the people what they want” still works.
Thanks to everyone in the “collective mind” for input. We wouldn’t be the same without you. The sheer volume of new music coming in from around the globe is truly gratifying. To all you artists, “Thank You” so much for sharing your creativity.
We had a lot of fun working live shows at the InsideOut Gallery. Going to miss that place. Mabey we’ll get to own our own venue soon and spread even more love.
Looking ahead… Just going to enjoy the ride. For now the #MusicalTherapyBus is one strange trip. And something tells me it will only get weirder the further we go.
One more thing. If any of you have an idea for a new show, let’s hear it. Resting on laurels gets stale real fast. We’re all in this together.
You folks are the best.
So, right away, the first question is “How did a Country Music guy end up on Fish Creek Radio ?” At first glance, it appears that a Grateful Dead bus pulled into the studio and never left. You are listening to the station and bopping along to all your favorite Classic Rock, Blues, Reggae, Jazz, and so on. Then all of a sudden here comes Ernest Tubb. Really ?
Well, the answer is simple. We all share a passion for the music we love, and have a mission to bring it to the people with hopes of broadening their musical horizons. Not to mention, the philosophy of “If you build it, they will come” seems to be the reason why so many are tuning in My Kind Of Country.
The music I play is real Traditional Country. I steer away from anything you hear on mainstream Country radio these days. Country Music seems to have been turned into a modern day Pop fad. For this reason, my show strives to tell the true story of what the music really is about, how it sounds, and who the true pioneers are. They are still very relevant in our world and my show aims to not only play the classics for those who remember them back when, but also to turn a new generation on to what I consider the best music on the planet.
I could go on and list all my credentials and accomplishments in the music industry over the years, but I don’t feel it’s necessary. This is not about me. It is about the music. I have talked to many people over the years who will tell me they can’t stand Country Music. My answer is simple. I just tell them, “Well, you need to listen to My Kind Of Country and I will change your mind every time."
"My Kind Of Country"
I am “young” at heart. I love music. When I was asked to do a show. I was very hesitant (with no ear for music,) but with my husband Jim’s help I have learned to appreciate all the genre of music. So we came up with an all woman artist show. I try to do a different theme for each show.
I also keep the books for station.
Thank you to all listeners and any supporters!
What’s a financial guy doing in this list? I don’t have a regular show, and you haven’t heard my voice on the station.
But I have known Rick for almost a decade, and agree that we all do well to surround ourselves, daily, with messages (lyrics) that bring life and joy.
I need music therapy too. I listen to music pretty much every day. My interest is limited to only a few hundred years of the greatest hits. I confess that not every song on Fish Creek Radio is near the top of my list of favorite hits. And, for your sake, not every song on my favorites list gets played on Fish Creek Radio.
The programming I work on is special event stuff like Rocking Through the Bible, and Not Your Normal Christmas Carols. I support Fish Creek Radio’s goal of sharing the love, and thank each of you that listen, provide feedback, and support the station. As you probably know, all the people involved volunteer their time and talents. And Fish Creek Radio is commercial free. Those of you that help out with the costs of electricity, hosting fees and equipment make it possible for Fish Creek Radio to stay on the air.
As Director of Social Sarcasm, Nicolas does alot of really cool things at Fish Creek Radio. He's always good for a laugh or a quick one liner. He also finds ways to assist with many of our IT functions and still manages to toss a song or two in the mix. Now that I've had my proud pop moment, I'll let him tell the rest of the story...
Certain members of the Collective Mind prefer to remain faceless and voicelless, helping out on air and behind the scenes. (radio Dj protection program) we salute their efforts as well...
