World firsts!

We were honoured today to be the first radio station in the world to feature a couple of tracks from Rocco Ventrella's forthcoming CD. They are now part of our playlist and even better news, Rocco will be live in the studio himself with even more material on next Sunday's show (December 3rd)

Free Download

Many thanks to Rene ("Smoothnews" on the Sky Forum) for alerting me to the following.

Artizen Music are offering a free download of the Paul Brown remix of Shilts "Look What's Happening" for a limited period. Wanna copy? Then visit . The download link is on the lefthand side.

Oh er, I wouldn't hang around on that one if I were you. Limited time only.

Getting Up To Date

OK to catch up with things. I visited New York along with the family back in October, and whilst there took the opportunity to broadcast the Sunday live show from the offices in Manhattan. The video of that show (which also features Sky founder Ari Shohat) has found it's way onto here. It's in two parts, so if you've never caught the live show before, now's the chance.

If that leaves you gagging for more, there's an archive video from the London studio when Peter White visited back in Easter of 2006 to be found here. Thats a Windows Media Player file BTW.

The most recent development at Sky from a smooth jazz point of view is the launch of our new uptempo smooth jazz channel (the link is on the right), which is proving to be a great success. My aim with this stream is to create a breakfast show/morning drive kind of vibe. Enjoy it with your morning coffee or to get you motivated for a day at the office. It's smooth jazz on caffeine! Don't be surprised if it gets you dancing.

Well Here Goes....

I thought it was about time to enter the world of blogs. As there's usually a bit of gossip to be had the Smooth Jazz world.

Ironically, some of the latest news and events have already happened, so my first observation in blogdom is that it's a shame that you can't backdate your entries. Ho hum.

So hang in there for a short recap on what's been happening recently...
