Came back and started again 12-25-2009. Decided to take over Friday nights. Had another good run, Got to do some really kickass interviews (Including Dommin, Acey Slade, Ville Valo, Rudi Protrudi of The Fuzztones), and then once again had to step away because..Life happened.
Then 2013 happened, and I was ready to start doing the show again – Except I wanted to kind of bring something bigger to the table. Ran friday nights again for a few weeks, then on Feb 28th, 2014 everything changed. I Simulcasted my very first show here on Long Island. Craving Strange’s CD release for “A Life Exceptional”. That night was insane – Revel 9, Jacknife Stiletto, Midnight Mob and Pedestrian Knock Down were also on that bill.
That’s when I realized we had something special. We were doing something that, hell, nobody else on Long Island was interested in doing. Obviously I immediately dove in, started simulcasting left and right – Either at KJ Farrell’s in Bellmore, NY – the late, great Evenflow in Bayshore, Revolution in Amityvlle, The Hub in Island Park.. We’d go anywhere, broadcast anywhere, and I didn’t care. There was a whole pool of awesome bands and artists that we were going to tell the world about. Juggling simulcasts and doing my regular show was a bit of a task that, I honestly just couldn’t keep up with. I put “Grave Disorder” on the back burner once again, and decided to push on with the Live shows, and put more focus on building our team and back end functions.
Fast forward – god knows how many simulcasts and our 10th Successful Showcase in the books – And Now it’s time to come back to the airwaves with a bit of purpose.That being said, I feel it’s appropriate to (pun intended) Bury the Grave Disorder brand completely. It’s done Me well over the years, without a doubt, but seeing as I actually have a reason to start doing the show again (And actually avoid Burnout) – We’re going to go with a new title.
SFT Radio. What’s it stand for? Use Your imagination!
I’ve heard enough w/Renegade over the years that have changed mine – And I’m finding more every single day that will keep me doing this.
