Our mission at Chiswick Radio is twofold:
We believe that there is great music out there being made now, and 5 years ago, and 20 years ago that you may not have heard. We like to sift through the less obvious, even if it’s an artist who is well known.
In that same vein, we want to make music fun. We like picking a song, or an album or even a music video and tell you why we find it so good, or at the very least so entertaining . Many of our takes will be short ranging from 50-200 words, since quite frankly, we’re not very good writers. But we will use audio, video, jokes and other ways to bring a song to life in our own twisted way.
We are not critics. As mentioned above, we don’t have the writing skills to wax poetically, but more importantly, we are here to celebrate music. Musicians have spilled the blood, sweat and tears to create a piece of art for all of us to enjoy. We want to give them recognition for the stuff we like. If we don’t like something, we won’t write about it, we’re not going to spend time running it down. Some critics do a great job of weighing an album’s pros and cons, and will continue to do so. That’s not where we play.
If we can get you to find a new song that you like, or look at a song in a different way, we’ve done our jobs.
Hope you enjoy the site!
