I want to show people the great range of music being produced in the country I am from. My main purpose is to provide listeners with examples of what I think is great music and let them make up their own minds. I love the fact that BTR treats the listener with respect, instead of force-feeding people music. I hope we can have some fun!
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 4, 2008
BreakThru Radio (BTR), the Internet's source for the World's Best Independent Music, is proud to announce the premiere of "TransPacific," a brand new specialty show from Australian DJ Chris Hatzis. This exciting show kicks off on Saturday, January 5th, and will feature the very best of underground music from the land Down Under.
"TransPacific" is dedicated to playing the most essential, vital new and independent music from both Australia and New Zealand. DJ Chris's picks stretch across all genres and are chosen from both current music and older favorites. The premiere edition of "TransPacific" will include some artists that American music fans may be familiar with, such as New Buffalo and Gotye, as well as bits and pieces from talented Australian and New Zealand acts such as Mick Harvey, The Brunettes, Lisa Miller and Young & Restless.
"I hope listeners will appreciate the selections I make," says DJ Chris. "I want to show people the great range of music being produced in the country I am from.
