STRANDED UNDER ENDLESS SKY -- The Storm Boy
6:30 pm - 9 pm, Tuesdays -- Low-Key Variety
Many years ago, growing weary of what was being played on commercial radio, and also getting fed up with 15-minute-long commercial breaks, I decided to explore the varied and wonderful world of indie music. By doing this, I was able to build up an unusual and diverse music library.
When I moved to the valley, I was lucky that someone encouraged me to give KAFM a listen.
Being repulsed by popular or Top 40 radio, I make a conscious effort to play non-mainstream artists, who deserve but rarely get airplay on the radio. Also being opposed to peppy or upbeat music early in the morning, or most any other time, I decided to play low-key music. I now enjoy playing my vein of music on Monday afternoons.
The styles I play are: Americana, indie pop, and folk, with low-key rock and alternative music. I try to keep the music tranquil but varied, with some edge sneaking in from time to time. I also have an ear for lyrics that often are on the more melancholy or poignant end of the spectrum. (There is a reason I call myself the Storm Boy.)
I love it when people say to me, “I love that music, but I’ve never heard of that artist!” And I would love to hear from listeners who have an opinion or could give recommendations of artists to play on Stranded Under Endless Sky.
