WhatYouWant Radio. The radio station you didn’t know you wanted until you found it. Home of the locally famous semi-regular WYWR show that will give you Scuba, Carolyn Franklin and Chris Rea in the same hour. Home of much much more besides: shows from Adamantium Trax, VS Radio and all sorts of bloggy wonders – videos, exclusives, free stuff. And just think, this is only beginning – new shows will be added throughout 2012 and beyond. Rest assured, now that you’ve found us, you won’t let us go.
Why do we make such a bold claim? Because only here can you find all manner of badass wonkiness, Balearic blissfulness, dusty scarceness and some songs with choruses. Funk, soul, jazz, beats, breaks, accordions, hiphop, postpost-dubstep, donk. Ok, maybe not that much donk. New stuff, old stuff and guest shows every couple of weeks or thereabouts. It’s like a real radio station, only slightly shoddier. And what’s more we’re gonna be leading you to an oasis of new music that you can get your grubby hands on immediately – where it’s do-able, podcast tracklistings will come with links to online stores where you can buy tracks and keep our favourite artists in bread and crackers.
This is beta, we’re new here and there’s a lot to learn. Many of you will have been listening for the last two years and this website may – may! – just give you a better way to listen to the tunes while at work, at sea or wherever you normally get your listening kicks. Others of you may have no idea why you’re here at all, you just followed some dumb link one of your so-called friends sent you and – pow, automatic – you’re here and you can’t leave. No matter how hard you try.
So follow WYWR on Twitter, adore the mighty Tumblr, check back regularly to see what strangeness has been uploaded to the blog, or set your RSS feeds to stun and get the automatic news on what’s been happening. Remember that the WYWR podcast is available through iTunes and therefore can delivered straight to your earbuds (after a process of turning on your computer, starting up iTunes and downloading the podcast). It’s that simple.
A final reminder: this is Beta! Send all thoughts, complaints, insults or requests (no Abba. Or no requests for something you can dance to. I’ve met your sorts before and you shouldn’t be here. Begone!) in and we’ll take them on board as we slowly expand over the coming years. Join us, we are WhatYouWant.
