  • A great idea (4our5ive6ix Radio)

    I came across bamgrrl's Friend Radio journals today and was left completely inspired. I shall do the same! Here's the basic point: Listen to 10 songs on any of your friends' radio stations. You might find you've been missing out on something, or possibly reaffirm your dislike for something else. It's all good fun and extremely educational.

    First up! 4our5ive6ix
    We became friends when he added me about a month ago. I think it was because I've listened to his band's music (which is truly great, by the way).

    Oooh! Fantastic! I've been listening to a lot of Joy Division in recent weeks, thanks to the film, Control. I'm not particularly familiar with this song. It's a live version, which I almost prefer live versions of Joy Division songs, with lots of synthy sounds that brings to mind Battlestar Galactica.

    Very Ape
    I've never been a huge Nirvana fan, so my knowledge on most of their music is limited, save the singles. And Born in a Junkyard. This is a lot punkier than I took Nirvana for. Cool. Short and sweet!
