As I mentioned in a previous post, yesterday I travelled to the beautiful town of Pylos in order to meet with my friend John Alslan who has his own radio show as well. Together we had a "Special Radio Sunday" on which I participated as a guest in his show 'Play it Loud' at noon, and he participated as a guest in 'Prog & Roll' at night. My co-host Nihal wasn't able to be there due to a travel, so we were just us.
I have to admit it was a lot of fun for us, and the hours didn't seem enough. But ok, maybe we will do it again in the future. As for the shows, I'm very pleased to see that many people logged in and listened to the shows, and many of them were participating in the chatbox as well. I believe that everybody (including us) had a really good time.
As for the music, well... we tried to combine many different music styles in both shows, and in 'Play it Loud' we played mostly upbeat and "noisy" songs let's say, because that is the style of John's show. In 'Prog & Roll' we played more classic songs, but we kept a few surprises for the end. This time 'Prog & Roll' was extended for half an hour, and on this extra time we played songs from bands nobody was expecting to listen to, because they don't actually much the style of the show. But that was the fun in it!
Anyway, I really believe we did 2 good shows yesterday, and that is very pleasing because we did put a lot of effort in them.
