Stepping Off Into the Future
By: Craig Pedersen, editor and publisher
Saturday April 24, 2010 Bad Daddy had the opportunity to step off into the future of commercial Music. That day they did a ‘Live’ Radio Show called “Not Necessarily Nashville”, hosted by Peter Ratner on KZFR FM Radio 90.1 in Chico California. This station has a large broadcast pattern in the central valley of northern California. But this show was listened to by people in Canada, Florida, and available to friends in Sweden, or any place you can link up to the internet. Like the breakthrough in the seventies, when Tom Donahue of KYA and part owner of Autumn Records took over KSAN FM radio and introduced us to “Underground Radio”, all the music longer than 2.4 minutes they wouldn’t play on top Forty. We are now stepping out into the greatest adventure in media imaginable. I have to tell you that the idea of a radio station having a live group doing one hour, damn that hasn’t been common since the fifties. I personally listened from Carmichael, California but the guys have Friends in Florida and Canada who listened live. After that show we find out that “Stingy” is being played in Australia on COUNTRY MUSIC ENTERPRISES [ 2YO] (88.9 FM) and “Almost” is being played in El Paso, Texas on station KTEP [KTEP] (88.5 FM). They downloaded our songs from Airplay Direct on the internet.
Chester Street Records upcoming release of Bad Daddy, "No Reply" is a Signiture song for this stylish group. The visual is also a bit different when judged against MTV or VH1. the style is more like a collogue, a medium of blenced graphic re aranged or processed to make it something speaking with a new voice.
