In conversation with: Sound Parade

‘Sound Parade’ is the newest, and potentially most mysterious, broadcaster to the Blast Radio airwaves. While a solo broadcaster, his shows are presented in the style of an internal dialogue with the host switching back and forth between two microphones and having a conversation with… himself.  As described in his Blast Radio profile bio, Sound Parade is an intrepid host trying desperately to navigate the stream of consciousness conversations while presenting a “Parade of Sound” featuring personal recordings, vinyl selections, and modular synths. He set himself a goal to do at least 100 broadcasts, however long that takes, and so far he's done 7. You've got 93 more to tune into.   We recently reached out for an interview… In true Sound Parade style, the responses we received were written as an internal conversation.

In conversation with: Tray Fisk

Tray Fisk is a visual digital artist with a deep love of culture, art, and music. While his primary creation medium is for the eye, he’s long had a taste to use his voice and love of sound to connect with audiences. For the past year, he’s used Blast Radio to scratch that itch.  Hosting a weekly show every Friday, Tray takes fans on an audible journey through his picks of the week, art news, opinions, and experiences as an American ex-pat now living in Istanbul. More recently, he’s even been giving away a NFT for one of his works of art to a lucky listener.  We recently spoke with Tray to learn more about him, his inspirations, and his love of the movie Labyrinth.

In conversation with: Professor Jeffy

Hitting the digital airwaves live from the ‘Cosmic Conservatory’ in Pittsburgh, PA every Monday night, Professor Jeffy brings both an inspirational story and a crate-digger’s dreamland of classic tracks.  A retired attorney and lifelong music collector, Jeff has survived two bouts with cancer and is not battling a third (which he explained is why he’s currently short on hair). Having gotten a bit stir crazy between cancer treatments and the COVID lockdown, Jeff has turned to Blast Radio as a way to pass that the time and get in touch with his extensive music collection.
